    Everything is somewhat down to opinion but I just feel the last two battlefield games change in pace is not particularly good for the franchise, feels a bit too COD like to me.

    That said it is fun and is VERY pretty.


    All true also but BF3 was the happy medium, think I went back and put more hours on it after BF4 than before it was out.

    Hi guys, not sure if this is the right place to ask but here goes, I have an intel I7 2600k overclocked to 3.400 Ghz the rest of the system is 16Gb of ram and a GTX 780 graphics card. will this play BF1 or do I need an upgraded processor?

    I have looked online but cannot find a definitive answer, I don't want to waste my money if i can't.

    Thanks!

    Isn't 3.4GHz that processor's stock speed?

    BF1 is quite a demanding game and works CPU's hard. That said, I don't see why your i7 won't run it, especially if you over clock it.

    Will run, the extra threads will help in 64 player maps.

    Just for ref though my 4690K @4.5Ghz is a solid 100% usage in certain large maps :jawdrop:

    Why not take the CPU to 4ghz or so?

    Hi, thanks both for the prompt replies. Yadda, you are quite correct 3.4Ghz is the stock speed! I will try an OC to 4Ghz and see how I go.

    Thanks again.

    Yes, mine was similar during the beta with CPU usage always in the region of 85-90%+.

    Just for information, I have OC to 4.5 Ghz and bought the game. Seems to be running well with the latest Nvidia drivers!

    To be honest I do not think there has been that much interest from the Bit Tech community compared to other games.

    I must admit though that I have re purchased this game after getting a refund and I am really enjoying the Operation and death match side of things. :thumb:

    Bit tech server would be good. Could always put split cost between interested parties

    Hi Guys, I'm on the Battlefield with this iteration at the mo. My i5 2500K @4.3 is struggling on Conquest maps so thinking of upping to a 2nd gen i7 (3770k?) to improve things. HAppy with rest of system , don't really want the ball ache of a new MB.

    What do we think?

    From what I have heard BF is one of the few games that actually does benefit for more cores and HT - so might be worth a shot - that said - I don't have the stats to back this up.

    Also, I just picked this up! WOOOP.

    I believe the minimum recommended CPU is an i5 6600k :jawdrop: I am running the i5 3450 and depending on what map I am playing it sometimes struggles but not a great deal.

    Enjoy. Operations is a very good game mode to play.

    Most I5's if overclocked will be fine until larger 64 player maps are required to take advantage of the proper hyper-threading in i7 chips.

    I should add that although CPU usage in the (64 player) online beta map with my I5 was hovering around the 90%+ mark, it was still comfortably spitting out 60fps (my limit with vsync on).

    My 3570k @ 4.3Ghz runs it comfortably but I can tell it's getting a good workout.

    Yes, exactly that. It's nice to see a game push CPU's a bit for a change. No point having Red Rum in the stable for the occasional canter in the park. I like it when they get a bit sweaty.

    Edit:...and I just bought it. I played the beta a lot and with Origin's black pudding sale, I couldn't resist.

    I'm not sure I'll ever get used to shooting horseys though.

    I get 60fps pretty much all the time with occasional slow down during big explosions close to me etc. Maybe it's other stuff eating cycles...
