The lights are on
Just taking one look of the graphical prowess of the
Battlefield 4 footage left PC fans wondering what it would take to run it in
all its glory. Dice finally answered the pervasive question, confirming the
requirements in an easy-to-read post, as seen below.
The minimum requirements are pretty lenient, but the
recommended requirements are beefy.
While 4GB of memory gets you by, the recommendation is double at 8 GB.
Graphics memory tells a similar story; it runs on 512 MB, but to get the full
experience you need 3 GB. Thankfully, the minimum processor has been out for
few years now. That doesn't mean you shouldn't keep your eye on a Haswell i5 to
get the most from Battlefield 4, though.
Our TakeThe specs pretty much conclude that you won't be running
this game on your low end laptop, and you'll need a dedicated gaming rig. This
shouldn't really come as a surprise. The minimum requirements don't expect that
much from your PC, but that doesn't mean it'll look all that pretty running on
it. This is game that has an actual
physics engine that covers the destruction of buildings, so I'm not all that
surprised about the recommended requirements.

My rig is a little above the recommended. I have 2 GTX 660 Ti PEs, i5 3570k 3.8GHz CPU and 8 GBs RAM. I should be just fine.
I've already surpassed this for awhile. I have 4 GB of VRAM.
***, only have 1,2 GB Vram...
Wow. This is ridiculous. Holy crap.
Well it seems the only way to enjoy this for your average gamer, is on a next gen system. Current gen, this game will just be a shadow of its next gen and PC counterparts. Most don't own, or can't afford a decent gaming rig. Not to mention running it at max settings for the best experience. So, alas..we come to next gen console. The average gamer will be able to afford a next gen console at some point. The game will already be optimizes for next gen hardware. No tweaking of settings needed. And the game will still look and play beautifully. Plug and play. No hassles. Aside from the usual bugs and glitches found in all new Battlefield games.
good. good! every specs passed!
Wow thats a little to hefty even for gamer rigs
Eh, Above the minimum. I am fine with it.
Minimum specs are very reachable, and recommended are pretty well up there (though my rig still beats them). Probably a result of the cross gen release, reaching low for current gen and high for next gen. I hope the recommended specs are indicative of what next gen is going to be...
My body is ready, but can my computer take it?
NOPE ILL JUST WAIT FOR MY XBOX ONE TO PLAY IT. ID RATHER PLAY IT ON A CONSOLE ATLEAST ILL HAVE A CONTROLLER
Looks like I'm runnin this on console boys and girls.
AMD SIX CORE CPU?? Damn these graphics are getting tougher to run.
