Battlefield 4 Alpha GPU and CPU Benchmarks


[UPDATE 10/3/13] For comparison, check out the Beta benchmarks here.
[UPDATE 10/30/13] For comparison, check out the Retail benchmarks here.

It is still extremely early to start your monster PC upgrade in preparation for Battlefield 4′s release on October 29, however 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

  • Weeshnaw

    Sees GTX 480 is gonna go ultra settings


  • TheGameGuru

    So much for being an AMD optimized game.

    • MickT

      I guess you didn’t read the part where it said ALPHA… a lot can change from that stage to final release.

  • Guest

    make a benchmark on medium settings, and 1900×900 resolution.

  • Porphyrios

    8350 is a tiny bit under 2600k, 3930k and 3970X FACKYESH!
    and it’s like a million times cheaper.

    • Weeshnaw

      And 6300 is right below that, and a lot cheaper as well!

      • Porphyrios

        but the 6300 is like 6 frames under. That’s a lot sometimes. But I love how BF4 is going to make better use of the AMD cores.

        • SandMan

          I wonder If my 1090t 4.0ghz is going to keep up…

          • Porphyrios

            Sure it will, i don’t see a reason not to. If the 4300 can, the 1090t sure as hell can.

    • Sona

      So the game is really bad optimized.

  • Andrew Dziouba

    looks like the game will be one of the first to be optimized for more than 4 cores that’s good news and just like my predictions

  • subnorman

    60fps on 7970 + fx-8150 = impossible. Atleast not on ultra :(

    • NarooN

      This is the Alpha. Final game is always better optimized. Same happened with BF3. BF3 Alpha made it seem like only the godliest of rigs would be playable at High. Game launches, people with mid-tier rigs could play it just fine on High, some even on Ultra.

  • eminus

    where is the love for FM2(Richland) :)

  • Mateusz Wieckowski

    Lol i have GTX 275 and play HIGH in windows 8 BATTLEFIELD 4 PLAY IN WINDOWS 8 no win 7 … opttimized game win8 … GTX 275 and 6 GB ram and quad q6600 2.4 ghz and play High in 30-40 FPS ..

    • NotaNaySayer

      You jacky its not optimized for win8 do some fucking research kid.
