Video: Is Doom playable on a 386?

Beitrag von philscomputerlab »

Is Doom playable on a 386? This is the question that I will answer with this video. I built a 386DX-40 PC and benchmarked Doom at all quality and screen size settings.

What do you think? Do you think it's playable or not? Please share your thoughts!

Clearly when music and sound is playing, and in later levels, the 386 struggles. Often it's very hard to aim and time the shots. Quite a few pauses when the game loads sounds. Maybe a limitation of 4 MB RAM?
