DICE has an extremely popular game in the shape of Battlefield V, and the company is continuing to update the gaming engine as PC gamers settle in with Battlefield V. But how does the game perform after a few rounds of updates?

Battlefield V

Processing power requirements

We all know that GPU power counts for more than CPU power when it comes to gaming PC performance, but that does not mean you can get away with a second-rate CPU for Battlefield V. That said a 2-core, 4-thread CPU should get you to frame rates of 60FPS which is quite decent. Up your core count to 4 cores and you’ll see a solid improvement, but this improvement drops off with 8 cores and more.

What about the GPU?

There is good news in that you can play Battlefield V on a GPU with 2GB of RAM, but we would say that a minimum of 4GB is best for solid in-game action. Cheaper cards such as a GTX 960 or R9 380 should get you a high frame rate at 900p using medium settings, but you will need to step up to a GTX 0180 or RX Vega 56 if you want to play high frame rates at 1440p.

4K-gaming is, of course, the holy grail. Be prepared to shell out for a top-end card such as a GTX 1080 Ti or RTX 2080 if you want any chance of running 60 FPS or higher rates at 4K. It will be a different matter when DXR comes out, but we can’t yet say what the performance implications will be.

Upcoming Battlefield V updates

Battlefield V is set to remain a PC gaming enthusiast’s go-to title as the creators plan on continuing the process of updating the gaming engine. You can look forward to DirectX 12 updates which will include DXR support, while we also expect that the company will roll out additional game modes. All-in-all Battlefield V will remain at the cutting edge for some time.
