Actually, I kinda think Nutty is right. I don't remember where, but it was a while back that stated Doom 3 test will be available late this year or early next. But then again, its me, I'm no [H] so I wouldn't know...hehehe.

A Beta test will likely not be released to everyone...Instead, it will be released to a specific number of selected "beta" testers. You can bet that a copy of this will also make it onto the net though....

As for alex.burm's quesiton...he made a point to say "when a monster attacks"....

Having used a 9700 Pro with an XP2400+ and 512MB of Corsair PC3200, I saw my frame-rate typically drop below 10fps when a monster entered the picture...especially as I raise resolutions...

I assume your 20-40fps refers to typical gameplay?
