It is still extremely early to start your monster PC upgrade in preparation for Battlefield 4′s release on October 29, however gamegpu.ru has recently put up some rather nice benchmark tests running on Nvidia and AMD graphics cards as well as Intel and AMD CPUs.
It was recently reported that due to the PC-like architecture in the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, the PC version Battlefield 4 will ship optimised for AMD CPUs, GPUs and APUs components. It is important to note that the game is in alpha and the tests below will most likely not reflect the final product. Another note to be aware of is Nvidia and AMD will have new drivers released around, or shortly after, the official launch of Battlefield 4. These new drivers can make a drastic improvement over the numbers you see below.
DICE warned that the Alpha version of the game does not represent the final quality of BF4. Keep in mind that the alpha will likely be both missing most level textures and not fully optimized. Recommended hardware specs were:
- OS: Vista SP2, Win7 (Win8 not supported)
- 64 bit (32 bit not supported)
- Dx10 or Dx 11 GPU with 1+GB of RAM, Dx 11 highly recommended
- 25GB HDD free space required
- Latest Origin version required
