In a interview for the german magazine PCGames Hardware, John Carmack from id Software
has revealed the hardware requirements for DOOM III
: a video card with at least 128MB RAM and Pixel Shader 1.1 support and a 2.5GHz CPU should be enough for the stencil shadows and physics calculations. Also, Carmack announced that a testing phase might last until this summer or even later. DOOM III is expected on 4 CDs and multiplayer will include Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Tournament and Last Man Standing. Thanks: ggmania
