Techspot spent more time benchmarking the Battlefield V beta than they did playing it for fun, which is how they published a quick performance review so quickly. We know the minimum specs required but that gives us little insight into what performance we will actually see. As it turns out, DX12 has the same difficulties that BF1 had on launch and so the testing was done on DX11 for the most part. For 1080p gamers the news is great, with even a lowly GTX 1060 able to provide 60fps at Ultra settings, at 1440p a Vega 56 or a GTX 1070 will do you just fine. Check out the full review for the 4k performance.
"This week we were finally able to jump into Battlefield V for the first time, and of course, we spent more time benchmarking than we did enjoying the gameplay, so we have a few results for you... which we'll call a preview since we are testing the 'open beta' version of the game. The full thing is slated for release across major platforms in two months' time."
