    I could be wrong but on bfV you would have been getting 100-120 frames with your setup

    My first impressions at 4k 60fps with a RTX 3080 and a Ryzen 1800x:

    CPU usage at 30-45% no problems there it looks like I won't have to upgrade for this generation either.

    GPU performance is shocking less than half of BF V while looking slightly worse? Not sure how they managed that. Barely holding 60fps with usage between 90-99%.

    Lots of glitches all around hope they sort them out by launch. Shooting feels good.

    I guess it feels like a battlefield. Way more excited for Halo Infinite multiplayer to be honest.

    a lot lower than bfv then but betas do tend to be un optimised

    Haven't got "the feeling" for it yet, the map feels way oversized for the amount of players and only feels like it's a 24 player count.

    The few ground vehicles I've been in feel like they are capped at about 15mph.

    Haven't had this for years! - Was running really well until I got into the Helicopter

    But yes performance is terrible compared to how it looks (beta)

    I haven't played BFV since having a 1440p screen and 2080 so I don't really have any reference point between 5 and this.

    Not really been paying attention to this. Downloading now via steam. Can I play or need to wait until the 8th?

    How long is beta running for?

    Only watched some vids so far, again they include the hit detection issue causing slide mechanic. Every game they've included this in there's been complaints about it screwing with hit detection and somehow accelerating the player using it. Good to see they listen.

    Had a quick go myself and it looked nice, game and gun play were both good but it did feel janky in places. Some of the animations weren't great and I don't like the 'scoreboard'

    I am looking at the Gold version of the game, will also play some over the weekend and make a final decision.

    The more I watch videos of the tornado, the more ridiculous it seems.

    People just seem to be using it as a slingshot to fire themselves around the map.

    Just did my first round and I'm sold. I'm very rusty as I've not played much BF games since the early days of BF1 (hated BF5) so its going to take me a while to get back into the swing of things and learn the nuances of this title but I really enjoyed that, LOVE the big maps, feels much more like the scale of the BF1942 maps and the gunplay feels very BFBC2 to me. If it still feels this good after a few more rounds then its a certain buy for me

    Oh and best of all, theres no scoreboard? Or at least I didnt see one, thats awesome

    Just had a go on it and my fire button is stuck ON. ANd try to go to change settings and that screen just goes to 'keep settings' thus unable to change any settings (wanted to find what button primary fire is). I use an orbweaver keypad but cant imagine after 15 years of using one it would affect this? SO not managed to have a go on it yet.

    Another mate cant join servers as it says there is a problem with the internet.

    Others seem to be in there playing so some oddities and irregular issues.

    Anyone playing this game on outdated hardware? Looking to see what settings / fps I might expect from a GTX 980 at 1080p before I decide to purchase.

    Ah I see, theres a little squad scoreboard thing but doesnt look like there is a complete player list scoreboard like previous BF games....thank goodness. Been saying for so many years that they need to get rid of that scoreboard so this is a move in the right direction at least !

    Great performance at 1440p with my Legion 5 pro (Ryzen 7 5800h / RTX 3070)

    Liking it here, some initial thoughts:

    Movement feels quick
    Guns feel punchy
    Looks good
    Needs optimising
    Sniper, with a bazooka and an AR is different
    AI are very dumb
    Air vehicles are Bf4 levels of powerful
    Love the weapon quick change for scopes and barrels etc

    Not tried tanking yet and only had a couple of games but enjoyed it so far, my 3070ti and 3680x1440 seems to be coping okay, hopefully with some optimisation and a new driver it will be sound.

    The attachments UI thing is brilliant...one thing I would add to that list is that I wish the Objective markers were larger on your HUD, its not really all that clear where the objectives are so I feel like the little A, B, C etc icons that hover on your HUD could do with being a little larger.
