Battlefield V Open Beta – PC graphics performance review
Looking good for a beta alright
In this quick article, we’ll check out some graphics cards with Battlefield V Open Beta. We’ll be brutally honest – the performance is a mixed bag, the looks, however, is shaping up to be something pretty good. We’ve spent a couple of days on the Beta to check out where the game is headed, and that definitely is in the right direction. This is a Beta, that means work in progress and the benchmarks and test sessions back that up, Battlefield V is slated for release in two months. Battlefield V really doesn’t need an introduction, it’s really much like the 2016 Battlefield 1 in gameplay. Based on the third iteration of the Frostbite engine graphics quality definitely has been shaping up into something nice. Battlefield V’s PC beta allows various graphics options which we’ll show you on the next few pages.
First, up some disclaimers, it was very hard to objectively test the Battlefield V Open Beta in its current state, the servers are constantly full or you get kicked out. Next, to that, we ran into limitations. Games spawn at either side in varying various points and scenes. That makes this difficult to test as at one point you get 50 FPS, then on others 75 FPS. We tried as much as we could to measure in a very dense part of the “Grand Operations” mode on the Narvik map a difficult thing to measure alright. While we’ll follow the DX12 path, DX11 was running better and more stuffer free, please keep that in mind as a good tip as image quality wise, it will not matter. For the GeForce GPUs the 399.07 WHQL drivers are used and for AMD, the Radeon Adrenalin 18.8.2 driver. And while we recommend you to use DX11 for now, the majority of benchmarks are DX12 based (which in hindsight would have been better off reversed). Unfortunately, we also ran into DRM limitations, each 5th or 6th video card swap results into us getting locked out of the game an hour or 24.
This article will cover preliminary benchmark results, we’ll look at all popular resolutions scaling from Full HD (1920×1080/1200), WQHD (2560×1440) and of course Ultra HD. UHDTV (2160p) is 3840 pixels wide by 2160 pixels tall (8.29 megapixels), which is four times as many pixels as 1920×1080 (2.07 megapixels). Next page my mate.
