DOOM is a legendary game series that first debuted in the year 1993 and left a mark in the world gaming history ever since. The latest iteration of the game that launched last year has some of the most advanced graphics ever.
This naturally makes it an extremely resource heavy game. DOOM (2016) is available on all of the major gaming platforms, namely, Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and even the latest Nintendo Switch. But which platform is the best?
A popular YouTube channel ElAnalistaDeBits has taken the opportunity to make a comparison video of how the game renders on all of these platforms.
Now, the debate has been going on forever over which is better, PCs or consoles. Yet a general consensus is that the consoles fall short in graphics to their PC counterparts mainly because you can configure the letter with the newest tech. In consoles, you simply end you voiding the warranty.
This video happens to show that PCs have an upper hand in most cases. It also goes beyond to show by just how big the margin of difference is.
In the video, we see that PC has the required edge in the graphics department. PlayStation 4 comes in the second position, followed by the Xbox and finally the Nintendo Switch.
The graphics on the PC are crisp, without any texture blur, distortion and perfectly v-synced. None of the competitors was able to match the quality.

The PC used for the comparison was running on a GTX 1080 and was playing 4K Ultra quality settings. Technically speaking, this made a big difference as none of the GPUs in the used consoles come close to what GTX 1080 offers.
That and a GTX 1080 itself costs as much as a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One, let alone the other components in the PC.
But that is the essence viability of a PC, which provides customization to extreme levels, where users can overclock and go beyond the stock performance of a hardware. Console users can hardly think of such customizations on their platform.
Another day, another win for the PC we believe.
