DICE releases official Battle 5 PC requirements – Are you ray trace ready?

Battlefield 5 rolls out later this month, and EA has published the official PC requirements for the game.

As with any other game, DICE has posted the minimum requirements on the recommended requirements for Battlefield 5. If you played the beta, you’ll already know how gorgeous the graphics are with ultra-realism. For maximum eye candy, you’ll definitely want to play on the recommended requirements.

Regardless, here they are:

Battlefield 5 Minimum Requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10
  • Processor (AMD): AMD FX-8350
  • Processor (Intel): Core i5 6600K
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1050 / NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 660 2GB
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon™ RX 560 / HD 7850 2GB
  • DirectX: 11.0 Compatible video card or equivalent
  • Online Connection Requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection
  • Hard-drive space: 50GB

Battlefield 5 Recommended Requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later
  • Processor (AMD): AMD Ryzen 3 1300X
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7 4790 or equivalent
  • Memory: 12GB RAM
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1060 6GB
  • Graphics card (AMD): AMD Radeon™ RX 580 8GB
  • DirectX: 11.1 Compatible video card or equivalent
  • Online Connection Requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection
  • Available Disk Space: 50GB

With a 50GB size requirement, it’s a decent chunk of Battlefield primed for release on launch day. The majority of even casual FPS gamers these days would meet the GTX 1050 requirements I’d assume, as the GTX 10 series has been out for quite a while now and is already considered to be “last gen” with the release of the new ray tracing Nvidia cards that are slowly leaking into the mainstream scene.

DICE has also listed separate requirements for those who want the ray tracing technology. For those who are unaware of this, ray tracing is a new feature that allows light particles and beams to be rendered individually like in real life. This will be one of the first games ever made with ray tracing technology. And it’ll be glorious.

For the best experience in Battlefield 5, you’ll need to have top-end hardware to indulge in the latest technology.

And for those blessed with this kind of setup, here’s what you’ll need:

Recommended Requirements for DXR

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10 October 2018 Update (1809)
  • Processor (AMD): AMD Ryzen 7 2700
  • Processor (Intel): Intel Core i7 8700
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Graphics card (NVIDIA): NVIDIA GeForce® RTX 2070
  • DirectX: DirectX Raytracing Compatible video card
  • Online Connection Requirements: 512 KBPS or faster Internet connection
  • Available Disk Space: 50GB

Battlefield 5 is set to release November 20 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
