I'm not a professional player, and have only ever played BF1. But I want to add my personal experience because you say only Intel processors are good for gaming on Ultra settings at 1080p with 60 FPS, but my AMD (I prefer its better performance-price ratio) setup works fantastically for BF1. I'm considering reusing it for BF5, though that might be pushing it (GPU is a 4GB RX470).

Daniel • 3 months ago

I'm assuming you're referring to the phrase "at least a dual-core hyperthreaded Intel CPU" in the section on recommended CPUs. But that's just setting a minimum, and is not meant to imply that an AMD chip would be a bad choice. Far from it, you will notice that we recommend a Ryzen 7 2700X in the very next paragraph as one of the best choices you could make for BF1!

Hay me again, the PC I originally wanted to buy has shifted a bit because of the prices (I live in Australia). Here's my build now, thanks for the earlier reply!

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4GHz 6-Core Processor
Mobo: Asus - PRIME B450-PLUS ATX AM4 Motherboard
Memory: Crucial - Ballistix Sport LT 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory
GPU: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB SC GAMING Video Card
PSU: Corsair - CXM (2015) 450W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

Daniel • 8 months ago

That RAM amount is definitely a more balanced choice for your build. We would usually recommend going with a higher-wattage power supply for those core components (typically a 650-Watt supply at that level), but other than that, you're looking at similar specifications (and thus similar performance) to the earlier list.

Ethan301 • 8 months ago

Judge me

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4GHz 6-Core Processor
GPU: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB SC GAMING Video Card
MEMORY: G.Skill - NT Series 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR4-2133 Memory and G.Skill - NT Series 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory = 12GB
MOBO: Gigabyte - X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING ATX AM4 Motherboard

Haha, alright, can do! That PC is comparable to the 'Very Good' tier of our general build recommendation chart, which we would expect to be capable of 90-144 FPS in Battlefield 1 at 1080p with max settings (or 60-90 FPS at 1440p, or 30-45 FPS at 4K).

Can I expect 1080p - 1440p with medium - high settings for i5 7600k, 1050ti? 60 fps

Daniel • 1 year ago

Due to the graphics card, those parts would perform roughly on-par with the 'Good' tier of our general build recommendation chart, which we would expect to be capable of 45-60 FPS in Battlefield 1 at 1080p with max settings, or 30-45 FPS at 1440p with max settings. (You could get better performance by playing with medium or lower graphical settings, and/or a lower resolution.)

Kinnav • 1 year ago

hi.....somebody plzz tell me whether i can run battlefield 1 on a computer with these specs: GTX 960, i5 6600 and ram 8 gb smoothly( at least on medium or low graphics)?

Daniel • 1 year ago

The parts in that build are roughly comparable to the specifications of the 'Good' tier build in our general build recommendation chart, which we would expect to be capable of 40-60 FPS in Battlefield 1 at 1080p with max settings---so it might be capable of staying consistently above 60 FPS at low or medium settings.

HoboJerry • 1 year ago

I have a 1060 3GB and i5 7600k, but I can't seem to get steady 60fps even on medium sometimes. Any suggestions?

Daniel • 1 year ago

Hmm, that's not crazy-low for those specs, but that is definitely a bit underwhelming relative to our expectations. I would say your first step would be going back to basics: updating graphics drivers, making sure the monitor is hooked up to the graphics card rather than the motherboard/CPU, making sure that no other operations on your computer are eating resources while you're playing, making sure that you're not getting spotty performance due to your connection to the servers rather than due to your machine's ability to play the game, and finally fiddling with each individual graphics option to see if one of them is much heavier on your system than we found above.

Darijan Zumarevic • 1 year ago

Does any of you think that i can run Battlefield 1 on these specs ( At least on low settings):
AMD Fire pro W4190M 2GB VRAm
Intel Core i5-6200 CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.40GHz
8GB of RAM

Daniel • 1 year ago

Unfortunately, we would not expect that those parts, which are well below the minimum recommended specifications for Battlefield 1, would be capable of achieving a playable frame rate, even at the lowest settings.

Fireghost • 1 year ago

Hi guy,it has any new player now,
BF1 still good to buy?
Or wait to new BF game?
Pls advice me

Daniel • 1 year ago

Maybe someone else can chime in with personal experience, but I can at least point to this: https://battlefieldtracker.....

That page shows how many players have been playing the game since launch. The player counts are the lowest they've been, but they're still seeing over 100,000 players per day across all 3 platforms. So if you're interested in the game, its community is still going strong on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Fireghost • 1 year ago

Thx bro

Cristian • 1 year ago

Hi, I'm debating whether or not I should buy a PC or build one cause I intend on using the PC for just battlefield 1 for most of time until I decide to play another game, and since I'm new to this, I just want to ask someone with experience and a lot more knowledge for help with this kind of thing, and my preferences are that I just want to play the game and I want it to have a smooth performance with minimum lag, and especially when I want to look around and admire the details of the game, if I can have your thought that would be very much appreciated

Larry Mitchell • 1 year ago

Its up to you, the cost difference in building vs buying isn't huge so you could go either way. Do you want to go through troubleshooting and configuration on something you build yourself? Or do you want your new system already pre-tested and ready to fire up?

If you are doing a partial upgrade then certainly its better to do the work yourself so you aren't spending money on components you already have, but if you are getting a completely new system it might be a better idea to have it built for you by someone like cyberpower. You can "build" the PC on their website, then go to pcpartpicker and choose all the same components to see what the price difference would be if you were to build it yourself.

Filip Petrovic • 1 year ago

Hi guys,
so how much fps could l get on 1080p ultra on gtx 1050 ti 4vram i7 7700 8 ram?

Larry Mitchell • 1 year ago

Is this a system you have or are building?

Filip Petrovic • 1 year ago

Sorry l didnt quite understand how do u mean ,,building,, ?

Kazoo Kid • 1 year ago

Hey! I just bought the superb, and i seem to be getting stutter and lag. Any explaination to this?

Matthew • 1 year ago

Are your drivers up to date? On what resolution are you playing?

Kazoo Kid • 1 year ago

1680 x 1050 and yes, drivers are up to date. It runs about 60-70 fps but often drops to 40

Select Asterisk • 2 years ago

Hi LI!

I saw here -> https://www.battlefield.com...

A quite high specs to be fulfilled ( Even the minimum one )

But from your game builds is not that high.

What is the different view from your side?

Thank you.

Matthew • 2 years ago

The system requirements are what is needed to run the game, but not necessarily what is needed to get good performance. You can run the game with some less expensive systems on lower settings, but our list is about maximum settings performance in Battlefield 1.

Noah Kurszewski • 2 years ago

Hey there. I loved this article with all of it's details and those interactive pictures, but I have a quick inquiry. I plan on running BF1 on an i5 6500 and an r9 fury (yes I have ample power and cooling for the sucker) at ultra on 1080p or 1080p widescreen (2560x1080). What fps do you think I'll get for each resolution at those settings? Thank you

Matthew • 2 years ago

Hey! You could likely get 60-90 FPS on both resolutions, but closer to the 60 end on 1080p wide screen. Either way, it should run very well!

Noah Kurszewski • 2 years ago


Jeffrey Bigelow • 2 years ago

i plan on playing BF1 with a fx 8350 and a msi radeon rx 480 8GB, wil i be able to run it at 1080p on ultra?

Matthew • 2 years ago

You could likely get about 45 FPS on ultra with that system.

Matthew Young • 2 years ago

Hiya, I have an i5-6500 with a GTX 950 2GB, my monitor is 1920x1080@144Hz. Any recommendations on how to tweak the settings to get 60fps?

Matthew • 2 years ago

On what settings are you currently running it, and with what FPS?

Matthew Young • 2 years ago

I don't have it yet. Just planning my summer sale buys. I don't want too heavy of a hit because the game is stunning. So in theory, since you list rough percentages, how many tweaks do you think I'd need. Benchmarks say with a gtx 950 without cpu or memory bottlenecking, I should be dancing the 50-60fps mark when setting it to the High preset. Ultra would drop it just sub 45.

Evan Morse • 2 years ago

Hi there - Love this analysis. I'm attempting to run the game on pretty old hardware at this point. It's a Bootcamp'd 2010 Mac Pro running a 2.8 Quad Xeon W530 (Westmere), 16gb of RAM, and a GTX 660 ti. This thing did wonderfully back in the day, but these days is feeling a bit dated gaming-wise.

Would upgrading my GPU to, say a 1060 3GB, make any notable difference here? Or would the CPU prove too much of a bottleneck?

Just curious for your input. Thanks!

Matthew • 2 years ago

Upgrading the GPU would certainly make a decent bit of difference. The CPU shouldn't really bottleneck that card.

Ben Rutt • 2 years ago

Will the i3 bottleneck with the gtx1060 3gb? Also if I am planning on building a computer with the i3 and 1060, should i get the 1060 3gb or the 1060 3gb super clocked? Thanks!

Matthew • 2 years ago

The i3 shouldn't bottleneck the 1060 3GB generally. The super clocked will give you a bit higher performance, but only just. Almost all 1060 3GB are virtually identical so get whichever is cheapest, usually.

jiecut • 2 years ago

It seems like resolution scale has changed to 100% being native. Any recommendations for lowering it on a 1080p screen if your fps is low?

Matthew • 2 years ago

You should be able to do that on the in-game settings generally!

Chechen109 • 2 years ago

i got a gtx 980 2Go DDR5 with 4Go ram and cpu i3 can i turn this game atleast on low or medium graphics?

Matthew • 2 years ago

I would think so, if it is on a reasonable resolution.

Cory • 2 years ago

I got a gtx 1080 and an i5-6500 with a 1440p monitor, In the beta and I got about 80-90 fps on ultra settings

Matthew • 2 years ago

Nice! That's solid performance.

Logic Prevails • 2 years ago

I was able to play on an i5-2400 and GTX560TI (+1gb virtual memory) on the beta. It was not optimal but I was able to keep above 50FP so long as I wasnt being hammered by the airship. I plan on upgrading my GPU to a 1060 6gb, but will I really need to upgrade my CPU? My CPU clock is 3.1gh whereas an i5-6500 is only slightly higher at 3.2gh. Does the Skylake architecture have some sort of magic that makes it better?

James • 2 years ago

Hey Logic. Similarly, I was getting 70+ FPS at 1080p in the beta on Ultra with a GTX 970 and an overclocked i5-2500K. I'd assume your i5-2400 is still powerful enough for BF1 and you don't need to upgrade right now. I would wait until after you've installed the 1060 and see how the game runs.

Skylake is definitely an overall improvement over Sandy Bridge, but not worth it if you don't need it. I believe I read that Skylake architecture has a ~25% performance improvement over Sandy Bridge at the same clock speed/core count, but I don't think that difference is necessarily as noticeable in most games. Keep in mind that upgrading to Skylake would also require a new motherboard and RAM.
