Dragon Ball FighterZ PC Performance Review

PC system requirements and Testing Methodology 

The listed PC system requirements for a title are an important metric when judging how well a game should be expected to perform on your current hardware setup, though sadly developers are often unclear when it comes to the playable settings and framerates that users can expect when playing a new game. 

Dragon Ball FighterZ is listed as requiring a Quad-Core CPU at a minimum, which is something that we will look at later in our dedicated CPU testing. A minimum VRAM requirement of 1GB is also listed, which should be great news for those of us who are using older GPU hardware.   

MINIMUM:

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Processor: AMD FX-4350, 4.2 GHz / Intel Core i5-3470, 3.20 GHz
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: Radeon HD 6870, 1 GB / GeForce GTX 650 Ti, 1 GB
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Sound Card: DirectX compatible soundcard or onboard chipset


RECOMMENDED:

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 1400, 3.2 GHz / Intel Core i7-3770, 3.40 GHz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: Radeon HD 7870, 2 GB / GeForce GTX 660, 2 GB
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Sound Card: DirectX compatible soundcard or onboard chipset


Testing Methodology

OC3D is a website that is about PC hardware, so you better believe that we test every game on a wide range of hardware configurations. This commitment to variety means that we will be using both Intel and AMD based testbeds as well as a range of GPU offerings from both Nvidia and Radeon. 

Our primary test system is based around Intel's X99 platform, using a Core i7 6850K at a fixed clock speed of 4GHz. This testbed will use 32GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR4 memory and will be powered and cooled by an HX1200i PSU and an H110i AIO liquid cooler respectively, with everything sitting inside a Corsair 460X chassis. In this system, we are using an ASUS Strix X99 motherboard.

Secondary Ryzen Test System

Aside from our standard X99 test system we also have a testbed based on AMD's Ryzen 7 1700X CPU, which will sit at a clock speed of 4GHz be housed in an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard. This system will use Corsair's 3200MHz Vengeance White LED memory and is contained inside another Corsair 460X chassis. 

This extra system will allow us to see if any games offer a performance advantage to AMD's Ryzen or Intel's Core series processors.

GPU Selection

No gaming test suite would be complete without a selection of GPUs, which in this case covers Nvidia's GTX 10-series and 9-series and AMD's RX 400 and R9 300 series graphics cards. We have plans to introduce RX Vega series GPUs to our testing at a later date, though right now these GPUs remain difficult to access. 

Geforce GTX 10-series

- Nvidia GTX 1080 Founders Edition
- Nvidia GTX 1070 Founders Edition
- ASUS GTX 1060 Strix Gaming OC


Geforce GTX 900-series 

- ASUS GTX 960 Strix

Keyboard & Mouse

To control this setup we will be using Corsair Strafe RGB keyboard with Cherry MX Silent keys alongside a Corsair M65 RGB mouse, matching the general theme of this RGB illuminated system.  

Cherry MX Silent Keys are ideal for gaming, coming with similar characteristics as Cherry MX Red keys, but with quieter operation. This comparative silence will help keep players immersed in their games, without the distracting clicks that are present in other Cherry key types.
