Battlefield V will not be a lot of fun for owners of older PCs. The official DICE Reddit account has posted system requirements for the game and if you want to take advantage of the latest DirectX Raytracing, the cost of building a proper PC is quite high.
Let’s take a look at the requirements, recommended for DXR:
OS: 64-bit Windows 10 October 2018 Update (1809)
Processor (AMD): AMD Ryzen 7 2700
Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7 8700
Memory: 16GB RAM
Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce® RTX 2070
DirectX: DirectX Raytracing Compatible video card
If you bought your PC earlier than this year, you won’t be playing Battlefield V with DXR no matter how expensive your rig is. Even if you do have a modern PC, it’s recommended to close Chrome before running the game, unless you have 32 GB of RAM.
OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later
Processor (AMD): AMD Ryzen 3 1300X
Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7 4790 or equivalent
Memory: 12GB RAM
Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1060 6GB
Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon™ RX 580 8GB
DirectX: 11.1 Compatible video card or equivalent
This setup is more sensible, it includes older generation of CPUs and GPUs. The RAM requirement is still a nuisance though, you’ll need to spend $150 to get enough memory to cover even that. And, by the way, if you are still running Windows 7, you'll need to upgrade.
Thankfully, minimum requirements will let owners of 3-4-year-old PCs enjoy Battlefield V.
OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
Processor (AMD): AMD FX-8350
Processor (Intel): Core i5 6600K
Memory: 8GB RAM
Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1050 / NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 660 2GB
Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon™ RX 560 / HD 7850 2GB
DirectX: 11.0 Compatible video card or equivalent
You will notice that AMD CPU in minimum requirements is slightly older than its Intel counterpart. Seems like Hyperthreading in earlier versions of AMD matters in this situation.
And again, the amount of RAM space this game is demanding feels overwhelming.
Anyway, you have time to prepare your PC as Battlefield 5 releases on November 20.
