    Question Recommended PC Specifications

    Please note: These specifications are likely to change over time as we implement further optimizations and perform more compatibility testing.

    For the Closed Alpha we currently recommend the following to have an enjoyable experience.

    Recommended Specs:
    OS: Windows 7
    GFX: 512MB - GTX 460 / HD 6850 or better
    RAM: 3GB RAM
    CPU: 2.2GHz Quad Core or better

    It is technically possible to play the Closed Alpha on less powerful machines, but this is not advised as performance will suffer until we undertake further optimisations.

    Minimum Specs:
    OS: Windows XP, Vista or 7
    GFX: 256MB - 7900 GTX / X1800 XT or better
    RAM: 2GB RAM
    CPU: 2.0 GHz Dual Core or better

    Re: Recommended PC Specifications

    Maybe we should adjust the recommended and minimum specs as we got a bad performance at the moment. A quadcore is a must have to get playable fps. To prevent fps drops i recommend a high i5 or i7. I dont have any idead how stable the game is running on amd.
    Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Service Pack 1
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 3770 @ 4GHz
    Memory: 16 GB RAM
    Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560
    Driver Date: 20/02/2013
    Sound: Realtek High Definition Audio

    Something which might increase your performance on AMD legacy graphics cards on Win Vista/Seven x64:

    Graphic Card doesnt affect only on fps number, remember also about processor

    I run a 3770k @ 4.8 and a fairly oc'd gtx670, which achieves stable 120 in bf3 as well as cod, in DB however.. not even close.

    Re: Recommended PC Specifications

    Ok, so i got a new PC lately.

    i7 4770K (no OC yet) with a GTX 770 OC.
    In BF3 i can play on HD and record the Gameplay in HD at the same time while getting above 100 FPS.

    But in XT i get maybe 100 FPS on a full server, didnīt get a chance to test it yet.
    250-150 FPS on an empty server, depending on the Direction i look.

    The Recommended Specs are bull****,
    I had a 3.0 GHz Quadcore, 8 GB RAM, and a GTX 460 (768MB)
    and didnīt even hit 60 FPS on a full server with a heavily tweaked game.

    why would you use a yellow dot for crosshair in a game filled with yellow backgrounds ?

    Re: Recommended PC Specifications

    I just booted up the alpha for the first time.

    I'm getting a truly comical 4fps with all graphics options set to low, Vsync and windowed mode off, 1280x800 resolution.

    I'm running a Dell XPS laptop with i7-2670 @2.2GHz (4 cores, 8 threads), 8GB RAM, GeForce GT 555M w/3GB, Windows 7

    If that is lod bias driver settings, that doesnt help the fps much, as the game is still loading all the crap in the background apparently. Even in earlier builds of DB where you could enable some debug viewmodes, they did not add to the fps, rather lower it.
    What really helped the fps are the Texturegroups changes, and some other config settings also helped, as it effectlively changes what the engine is doing.

    I would imagine it's your integrated graphics card that's causing you issues.

    Damn, AMD didn't release Win 8.1 compatible drivers for legacy cards (HD4xxx). I guess I will buy GF next time...
