[UPDATE 10/30/13] Retail benchmarks have been released and can be viewed here.
Russian website Gamegpu.ru has done an outstanding job, again. They recently put up some very nice CPU, GPU, VRAM, and Video Stutter benchmark tests running on Nvidia and AMD graphics cards as well as Intel and AMD CPUs. RAM benchmarks were also preformed.
DICE warned that the Beta version of the game does not represent the final quality of BF4. Keep in mind that the Beta is missing some level textures and not fully optimized. Recommended hardware specs are:
OS: Windows 8 64-bit [More on why Win8 is recommended]
Processor (AMD): Six-Core
Processor (Intel): Quad-Core
Memory: 8 GB
Hard Drive / Solid State Drive: 30 GB
Graphics Card (AMD): AMD Radeon 7870 [Amazon]
Graphics Card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce GT 660 [Amazon]
Graphics Memory: 3 GB
For comparison, check out the Alpha benchmarks here.
Battlefield 4 Beta has both basic and advanced graphics settings: ultra, high, medium and low. You can also flexibly manipulate individual settings. All graphics settings are placed on one tab the game menu.
Testing at maximum quality settings 1920×1080 no MSAA
At a resolution of 1920×1080 at maximum settings, an adequate FPS video experience is at the level of Radeon HD 7770 or GeForce GTX 560 . Optimal graphics solutions will be the Radeon HD 7850 or GeForce GTX 580 and above.
Testing at maximum quality settings 2560×1600 no MSAA
At a resolution of 2560×1600 at maximum settings, an adequate FPS video experience is at the level of Radeon HD 7850 or GeForce GTX 580 . Optimal graphics solutions will be the Radeon HD 7970GE or GEFORCE GTX 770 and above.
Testing at maximum quality settings 1920×1080 MSAA 4X
At a resolution of 1920×1080 at maximum settings with MSAA 4X , an adequate FPS video experience is at the level of Radeon HD 7850 or GeForce GTX 480 . Optimal graphics solutions will be Radeon HD 7950 or GEFORCE GTX 660 Ti and above.
Testing at maximum quality settings 2560×1600 MSAA 4X
At a resolution of 2560×1600 at maximum settings with 4X MSAA, an adequate FPS video experience is at the level of Radeon HD 7950 or GEFORCE GTX 670 . Optimal graphics solutions will be the Radeon HD 7990 or GEFORCE GTX TITAN and above.
Testing the memory consumed by the game program was conducted with MSI Afterburner.
Testing at maximum quality settings memory GPU
Used the recommended 2GB amount of memory for this game. For ultra resolution and maximum settings you will need to be about three gigabytes of memory.
Testing at maximum quality settings Micro-Stuttering GPU
As we can see, the Micro-Stuttering is at an excellent level indicating that a good optimization Battlefield 4.
CPU-testing conducted on 17 models of basic configurations that are relevant for today. The test was conducted in areas where the value of video games for the minimum and its occupancy was less than 99%, this time at a resolution of 1680×1050 at the highest quality setting.
Testing at maximum quality settings 1680×1050
Battlefield 4 Beta is very greedy on CPU resources. Even top models could hardly hold out to a comfortable performance. It is worth noting that the most beneficial to look eight-game model from AMD.
On some motherboards, the six-core FX models show inadequate results. The solution : Try to put the priority in the task manager on the Battlefield 4 Beta to low, and if that doesn’t help, adjust the BIOS settings to disable 2 cores.
Download cores at maximum quality settings 1920×1080 Intel%
Download cores at maximum quality settings 1920×1080 AMD%
Battlefield 4 can completely use up to eight processing threads. The distribution of the load on AMD calibrated much better than for Intel.
Testing the memory consumed by BF4 was carried out directly through the Windows Task Manager Windows.The test was conducted on the basic configuration of Core i 7 3970H@4.9 GHz c preset memory of 16GB DDR3 2400 MGz.
Testing at different quality settings
As we can see, the basic settings for different qualities of memory consumed in Battlefield 4 Beta is located at 1600-2200 megabytes. Thus, for a comfortable game, you must have at least 3 GB of RAM installed in your PC. The optimum will be the presence of 4 gigabytes.
