id Software on AMD Ryzen

Hear from id Software’s CTO, Robert Duffy, on how DOOMآ® runs on AMD Ryzen and what their plans and expectations are for the new CPU. The current idTech 6 works very well at taking advantage of multiple threads already, but Duffy did mention that their new engine, presumably idTech 7 would be even more robust.

"We're working on the next generation of idTech right now, and we're definitely gonna optimize fully for Ryzen. The new engine tech that we're working on is far more parallel than idTech 6 was. We plan to really consume all the CPU that Ryzen can offer."
