    3GB VRAM? Hopefully won't kill my 970s then.

    Are they being sponsored by Intel or something?

    Min spec i5-6600K or FX-6350, so all the people running previous generation i5/i7 machines that are waiting for Intel to actually release a CPU that is worth upgrading too are screwed.

    Interestingly, taking a look at CPU-World comparison of the old i5-2500K, the i5 pretty much either better or similar performance.

    Yes its quite odd as my machine (which while quite old apart from the new 480) is at recommended specs for everything but CPU which has never been a bottleneck before...

    Its the usual ass-covering that you get on all system specs these days.

    We get requirements stating "Server with 16GB RAM" and then monitor the application to find it's using < 1GB.

    State more that you know you need and there shouldn't be any comebacks.

    I played with 8GB on medium and after 30min it crashed because it ran out of memory. After about 5min of gameplay the memory was full and started eating virtual memory. 16gb imo is the minimum, unless they fixed crashing when playing with only 8gb

    Isn't that what is normally described as a memory leak?

    It was the game's fault, but yes a memory leak. Question is how likely is EA to fix that leak before launch. I know its the game's fault because many people were complaining about the leak in chat and such.

    I have an i5-2500 and it ran fine, the minimum CPU is a bit of BS

    i have an i5 4570 non k and was getting 100% usage which caused my mouse to stutter. Not by much and frankly 99% people wouldn't feel it, but the 1% who feel the difference between 125hz and 500+hz on mice would say it its not really BS. 4570 works at about 3.4ghz and stutters were only about 30% of game time so I suppose if you can have cpu that overclocks to at least 3.6ghz you should be fine...

    Re: DICE reveals Battlefield 1 PC system requirements

    Have a FX6300 with a RX480 8gig all ran really good at full and my boys ran great with same cpu but a 7950 and 270X in the other and all with 8gig memory!

    I understand it was a beta but when they did the same with BF4 we had no problems then

    Mine is a non-K (the day I went to buy the rig the K was out of stock, couldn't be arsed coming back another day, Scan is a slog), and while the performance wasn't top-notch, there was stuttering like you said, it still ran in what I would call an acceptable way, and to me this means it meets the minimum.

    You're not gonna get perfect play from minimum requirements, that's a given, but the game runs at a level that is acceptable, and I found it acceptable. Of course this is one of those things that is more opinion than fact so I guess we'll agree to disagree

    Re: DICE reveals Battlefield 1 PC system requirements

    Yeah you have a point, minimum cpu spec could be lowered to much lower. You could even argue that playing on 32 man servers could be defined as minimum and then 8GB with low clocked cpu should be fine for 60+fps

    The workaround to this stuttering personally was to cap fps to what ever is close enough to not saturate cpu. I had to go for 64fps as going 60/61 made screen tearing unbearable. Also because of way it gets capped it introduces a bit different stuttery-ness however I found it to be better than the one from getting cpu bottlenecked.

    Re: DICE reveals Battlefield 1 PC system requirements

    The resolution scale was wacky on the beta, you had to set it to 42% for it to actually be 100%. Setting it to 42% stopped all stutters for me and still looked fine graphically, they probably would have fixed this by now.

    Re: DICE reveals Battlefield 1 PC system requirements

    The beta seemed fine on an i7 2600K @ 4.6GHz - the system I built in 2011 for BF3 (although I bought a GTX 970 to replace the Zotac GTX 590 that failed out of warranty).
