    BF series sure needs an overhaul. I still get the same performance issues in BFV as I did in BF1.

    DX12 vs vulkun which is better in bfv?
    I mean DX12 is the only option for rayvtracing but just comprising normal performance

    I would rather they put best efforts into getting open XR out and supported as a matter of course before diversifying myself.

    Edit quick Google shows I am wrong they have already been far more than just VR. my new fact learned for the day. I didn't realise they had a huge part in Vulkan

    Funnily enough mantle which is in battlefield 4 and years old works great compared to dx12 in bf1/5

    Vulkan is what mantle turned in to.
