Battlefield 4 Official PC System Requirements Revealed

MP1st - Battlefield 4 developers DICE have laid down the minimum and recommenced system requirements for the PC version of the game releasing this Fall on October 29.

The story is too old to be commented.

Hmm.. not really as demanding as I thought.. an AMD Radeon 7870 goes for around 140 these days.

barb_wire1749d ago

$140, where? - the 2GB card goes for $190 on newegg but that's after rebates, considering the recommended specs calls for 3GB video memory..

Izzy4081749d ago

Frosbite 3 engine does a lot of the work, therefore, people are not required to purchase top of the line hardware to run BF4. If this wasn't the case, there is no way this game would have been released on current-gen.

It's weird they recommend a GTX 660 but 3gb of video memory. I know they made a few 660 cards that had 3gb of memory but the standard was 2. Any idea what resolution the recommended specs are for?

ProjectVulcan1749d ago (Edited 1749d ago )

PC will boss this game don't worry.

It still has to run on current gen consoles, which is why the minimum specs are basically the same as they were for BF3 two years ago.

Beyond that you'll just crank it to wherever your particular machine can handle. If you have a PC from the past 5 years it'll run better than existing consoles and a more modern one will beat up Xbone and PS4 as well.

I would imagine if you have a 7870 or better you'll be getting high settings and GTX670, 7950 or better ultra @ 1080p. We'll see.

3GB ram yeah dont know about that. Remember how pissy BF3 was about ram if you didnt have 2GB it wanted to LAG.

I have an AMD 7770 and I can run Planetside 2 on Max settings.

I'm assuming I'd be able to run 90-95% max settings for this game as well.

Still want to play this for PS4 more than PC though.

Just having 64 players on console is something I've wanted to play for a long time.

"Max settings"

Unless you play in 720p or some absudrly low resolution you don't play in max settings stop lieing.

fooltheman1749d ago

Which console comes the closest to the specs for pc recommended?

Letros1749d ago

I don't think we'll know that until post launch analysis.

fooltheman1749d ago

Just based on what we do know...

I know we can't compare a pc against optimized consoles

Irishguy951749d ago

Ps4 of course. Not quite there though, the CPU is too weak, the Gpu is not high enough either.

HeyImBen111749d ago

You can't compare PC requirements with a optimzied console hardware build.

That's why you can only know something when the consoles are here, its pointless otherwise.

Irishguy951749d ago (Edited 1749d ago )

My 8800GTX runs games better than 360/Ps3. 8 years of optimization did **** all. Deal with it HeyIBen, you have no idea what you're talking about. Specs >>> Optimization. Ps4 version is already getting graphical and frame rate complaints btw.

Bolts1749d ago

None of them is even remotely close. If the PS4 is armed with the recommended specs it would be able to run BF 4 at 1080p 60 FPS without breaking a sweat.

ATi_Elite1749d ago

so stop bringing up "which console is closest to recommended specs" because the consoles are using LAPTOP parts which are WEAKER than the Desktop hardware.

sure the CPu and memory requirements are meant BUT that LAPTOP Hd7850 GPU in the PS4 can ONLY achieve medium/high settings while running BF4 and so far 720p 60fps for MP and NOT 1080p

Frostbite 3 breaking Next Gen consoles even before they release.

bratman1749d ago

while the consoles are definitely using weaker hardware, the "LAPTOP Hd7850 GPU" can only do 864 GFLOPS (less then half of what the ps4 does) the ps4's gpu would be in between a 7950M & 7970M (:

not too much diference...

awi59511749d ago (Edited 1749d ago )

Too bad the CPU is the biggest killer in BF multiplayer you can have a really powerful gpu but your cpu can drop your fps badly in BF 64 player matches. When the physics and explosions go off if you have a bad cpu you can watch your FPS go from 80 down to 20 then you get shot in the head when your running at 20 fps.

cannon88001749d ago (Edited 1749d ago )

ps4 probably dude, but pc will look and run best.

As soon as development on current gen ceases, the recommended will be the minimum.
