    As RTX hardware doesn't feature in the recommended specs of each title does that mean they don't recommend using Nvidia RTX.

    Those BFV specs looks wacky, they are identical to BF1 and how can you possibly compare:

    Processor (AMD): AMD FX-6350
    Processor (Intel): Core i5 6600K

    Madness!

    its the same game, with different maps, why wouldnt it have same specs

    we were teased dx12 back in bf1, clearly if this would be new game we would have proper implementation of it in this game, instead you just get 60$ microtransaction rehash still working in dx11

    I noticed that, I was frankly amazed that a modern AAA title could still run on those old AMD CPUs which were low end in their time (although excellent value for money). Obviously this is running on the same engine as BF1 buuuut I do wonder if those extra AMD cores are now being utilised better?

    These are specifications for the beta, not the full game, so the likely wouldn't list RTX as support is likely disabled in this build (if its even included at all).

    That doesn't make the specifications any more sensible mind! I always find the "recommended" specs a bit weird as surely you'd "recommend" the best consumer hardware out there (ignoring SLI or i9 type CPUs) so it should really be recommending you use a 9700k and GTX 1080ti, right?

    As usual best to just ignore them and give it a try on your system. Use the "recommended" guideline as a bare minimum and completely ignore the suggested "minimum" specification.

    If recommended is an FX-8350 rather than a Ryzen, then it sounds like threads matter rather than single threaded performance.

    So basically they have done a slittle a sposisble in optimising, hoping that raw grunt of todays machines can overcome it or just a sucky Xbox port !

    Re: Battlefield V beta PC minimum and recommended specs shared

    Looks like Battlefield 5 added RTX support? Though it's not all that much of a difference. ONLY affects reflections like water and glass, nothing else is different at all. I'm pretty sure that's not what RTX ray tracing was advertised as doing. Anyway, seems like RTX ray tracing is not quite ready for gamers who care about performance. The video card recommendations for BF5 here is spot on: <link removed>

    Probably a little unfortunate for Nvidia that their two RTX "launch games" are not really all that impressive with the ray tracing turned on. Hopefully it will improve a lot over the next 1-2 years though. Lots of cool effects could be easily done with ray tracing, but like VR it will take developers and technology a while to catch up.

    I dont think anyone is going to notice the ray tracing whilst you are running around trying not to get your face blown off! I'd rather have the smooth frame rate.
