Battlefield V System Requirements Revealed

Ryzen 7 2700 or i7 8700 as Recommended CPUs

The official system requirements for the upcoming Battlefield V game have been outed, and there are three categories of such requirements now: Minimum, Recommended, and DXR. The minimum requirements are pretty steep as they are: DICE say at least an AMD FX-8350 or an i5 6600K CPU are required, alongside 8 GB of system RAM (on the graphics front, a GTX 1050 / RX 560 are mentioned).

The recommended system requirements do bring some interesting tables to the mix, though, with AMD’s Ryzen 3 1300X and Intel’s i7 4790 being hailed as good CPUs for the configuration. This is in stark contrast with the minimum requirements, but here’s the gist: it appears that Battlefield V will be a well-paralellized game, though it will also require strong per-core performance (hence why the FX-8350 doesn’t make the cut, and why a previous-gen i7 is higher on the list than the 6000 series i5 from Intel). Minimum RAM for the Recommended spec stands at a whopping 12 GB, though – I believe this is the highest I’ve ever seen for a game release. An RX 580 or a GTX 1060 round out the specs.

Finally, we come to the DXR recommended specs, and this particular requirement will surprise about three people: the minimum required graphics card is NVIDIA’s RTX 2070… That’s right, the lowest-tier available RTX-enabled graphics card (remember that DICE said they’d be optimizing DXR effects for performance, though, so those promo images could not represent the final product). The rest of the specs see a system bump that brings the specs up to the standards of top gaming PCs in this day and age, though, with a Ryzen 7 2700 (no, a 1700 apparently won’t do), an i7 8700 on the Intel camp, and a whopping 16 GB of system RAM. All tiers require at least 50 GB of available storage.
