Battlefield V PC Performance Review

PC System Requirements 

Below are DICe's official PC system requirements for Battlefield V, with specify the game's minimum requirements, recommended requirements and DXR requirements for DirectX Raytraced reflections. 

We will see later how well systems that are similar to this game's recommended requirements perform, as well as a see how well PCs with quad-core Intel processors function. Throughout most of our gameplay, Battlefield V's DRAM requirements remain accurate to these specifications, sitting at less than 8GB at the game's lower settings while sitting between 8GB and 12GB at Ultra settings and higher resolutions. 

BATTLEFIELD V MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

GPU Drivers

While testing Battlefield V we utilised game-specific drivers from both AMD and Nvidia, utilising the Radeon Software 18.11.1 driver and Geforce 416.81 Game Ready driver in the applicable graphics cards from each vendor.   

Testing Methodology


OC3D is a website that is dedicated PC hardware, so you better believe that we test every game on a wide range of hardware configurations. This commitment to variety means that we will be using both Intel and AMD based testbeds as well as a range of GPU offerings from both Nvidia and Radeon. 

Our primary test system uses Intel's X99 platform, containing an Intel Core i7 6850K at a fixed clock speed of 4GHz. This testbed will use 32GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR4 memory and will be powered and cooled by an HX1200i PSU and an H110i AIO liquid cooler respectively, with everything sitting inside a Corsair 460X chassis. In this system, we are using an ASUS Strix X99 motherboard.

ASUS X99 Strix
Corsair Vengeance LP 4x8GB DDR4 3200MHz
Corsair HX1200i
Corsair H110i GT
Windows 10 x64 "Creators Update"

 


Secondary Ryzen Test System

Aside from our standard X99 test system we also have a testbed based on AMD's Ryzen 7 1700X CPU, which will sit at a clock speed of 4GHz be housed in an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard. This system will use Corsair's 3200MHz Vengeance White LED memory and is contained inside another Corsair 460X chassis. 

This extra system will allow us to see if any games offer a performance advantage to AMD's Ryzen or Intel's Core series processors.

AMD Ryzen 7 1700X @ 4.0GHz
ASUS X370 Crosshair VI Hero
Corsair Vengeance LED 2x8GB DDR4 3200MHz
Corsair 460X System Chassis
Corsair RMi650
Corsair H115i
Nvidia GTX 1080 Founders Edition
Windows 10 x64 "Creators Update"

GPU Selection

No gaming test suite would be complete without a selection of GPUs, which in this case covers Nvidia's GTX 10-series and 9-series and AMD's RX Vega, RX 400 and R9 300 series graphics cards. We have replaced our RX 480 GPU with its RX 580 equivalent, giving us a fairer comparison point between AMD/Nvidia's modern graphics card lineups. 

Geforce GTX 10-series

- Nvidia GTX 1080 Founders Edition
- Nvidia GTX 1070 Founders Edition
- ASUS GTX 1060 Strix Gaming OC


Geforce GTX 900-series 

- ASUS GTX 960 Strix

- ASUS R9 380 Strix

Keyboard & Mouse

To control this setup, we will be using Corsair Strafe RGB keyboard with Cherry MX Silent keys alongside a Corsair M65 RGB mouse, matching the general theme of this RGB illuminated system.  

Cherry MX Silent Keys are ideal for gaming, coming with similar characteristics as Cherry MX Red keys, but with quieter operation. This comparative silence will help keep players immersed in their games, without the distracting clicks that are present in other Cherry key switches.

And I love that for intel CPU, disabling hyper threading improves FPS for the 6 and 8 core chips Quote

Vega 56 is absolutely brutal on the 1080 here. Going to see how the 64 holds up against the 1080TiQuote

Not at the moment, we are working on that, but the fact that I live in Northern Ireland and Tom lives in blighty complicates things. It isn't as easy to get new kit into my hands as you would think.Quote
