Drivers and Software
The latest drivers from Nvidia were used as of 16/11/2018. This includes all the most up to date drivers for Windows 10, and the most recent updates available to Battlefield V prior to its launch. Keep in mind that with this being launch week, performance will likely improve in the game with upcoming patches and fixes.
To keep things in a nice, easy to repeat and easy to set up format, we stuck with the games built-in high graphics profile. The only changes we made were to turn V-Sync off, set the frame limit to its maximum of 200, and we used three resolutions; 1080p, 1440p, 2160p. We ran several runs using the War Stories setup, both with RTX on and with RTX off to show us the average performance difference between each run. There’s also a final run with the games Ultra profile, where we only used 4K and Ultra Ray Tracing for a full stress test.
Since we ran the game pre-release, we avoided multiplayer testing as things are too quiet and too erratic pre-launch. Perhaps this is something we’ll dive into post-launch. However, we still expect GPU performance to be similar online, but online does tend to be more CPU intensive too.
