Battlefield 1 PC Performance Review

1080p Performance

At 1080p Battlefield 1 is fairly easy to play at a solid 60FPS, even on our lower end hardware like the R9 380 and GTX 960, though both of these GPUs will require players to use low settings.  

We can see that on DirectX 12 AMD's GPU lineup really shines, while Nvidia's GPUs prefer to stick to the older DirectX 11 API. Each GPU performs exactly where we would expect them to relative to each other. The AMD R9 Fury X beats Nvidia's GTX 980Ti, which is expected for a DirectX 12 game, though AMD's high-end lineup fails to compete with Nvidia's much newer Pascal series GPUs.  

Ultra competitive players will need to play this game at lower settings in order to achieve stable 100+ FPS framerates on most hardware. It is encouraging to see Ultra settings being playable at 110+ FPS on the GTX 1080, especially when other modern games can barely run at 60 like Mafia III.

Just out of curiosity, would VRAM consumption change between DX11 and DX12 if all settings are the same?Quote

More evidence that a game can look groundbreaking without being gpu breaking.

Developers take note.Quote

Nice review Mark and interesting to hear that it's better than BF4's launch, but would you say it's better than BF4's current state?Quote

There are reports of hugely excessive CPU load bugs... (Only in MP matches)
Like 90-100% CPU usage (Dropping GPU usages) on Beast Rigs, no matter what settings used...

CPU testings need to be done before I buy it...Quote
