Is there any reason I should not be able to run Doom Eternal on a 4k monitor, but at 1080p resolution settings, with my current setup?

I have two PCs, one at home and one at the office. The home PC is an AMD Ryzen 2600x with a Zotac Nvidia GTX 1060 and a 1080p monitor, the work one is an AMD Ryzen 3600 with the Nvidia GTX 1660 ti graphics card and a 4k monitor. Both have 16GB of RAM. I play at home at 1080p, so I have the game resolution set at 1080p.

Doom (2016) works fine, but Doom Eternal does not. I know it's 4 years older, but I'd still expect the newer game to load to the game menu at least.

On the work PC, when I try to load the Doom Eternal, it gets to the initial loading screen, and then just hangs.

The other difference is that the home PC is running 20.04, the work one is 20.10.

Is this the OS version, or is the graphics card not powerful enough, or something else I'm missing?
