Best Graphics cards for BattleField 1- Recommended Video cards for BattleField One

After having a succesfful beta session, Battlefield 1 is finally set for it’s release this month.  As we all know, BattleField One is one of the most anticipated games this year. The trailer of Battlefield one became the most liked game trailer ever. While it’s competitor released COD Infinite warfare trailer as a competitor for BattleField one, it eventually became the most disliked game trailer so far. The trailer looks quite stunning both visual and Gameplay wise. On the other hand, it’s competitor COD Infinite warfare fails to impress the viewers with it’s moderate Graphics and long old same story line.

Here’s the trailer of BattleField One.

The horses, the Behemoth, the attack planes and bombers, and even the World War 1 style guns are all impressive in the trailer and they definitely raised the expectations (atleast for me).

Best Graphics Cards for BattleField one: Minimum Requirements

# Radeon r7 370:

First of all, just make sure that your video card supports DirectX 11 . Clearly, the cards we mentioned here spport DirectX 11 . This card, the AMD Radeon r7 370 just meets the minimum requirements of BattleField one and can perform well if you have a high end processor with atleast 12 Gigs of RAM.

In the same price range as the GTX 950, AMD offers the Radeon R7 370. Unfortunately, though, where the 950 shines, the R7 370 lags quite a bit behind.

If we don’t consider price and the performance of the GTX 950, the R7 370 is a very capable video card at ~$150. However, given that the 950 beats it in every benchmark, costs the same, and consumes a lot less power, it’s safe to say that the GTX 950 is the better of the two cards.

# Geforce GTX 950 2GB Variant:

As we said earlier, this is available almost at the same price as R7 370. Clearly, the GTX 950 crosses the benchmark tests of r7 370 and is defnitely worth the $150 you’ve put in for it.

To show off it’s power, the 950 achieves around ~50 FPS in GTA V, around ~45 FPS in Metro: Last Light, and around ~35 FPS in Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, all on a 1080p monitor at very high/ultra settings.

And, perhaps the most enticing feature of the GTX 950 is the fact that it is extremely power-efficient—which means that if you are upgrading an older system, you probably won’t need to go out and get a bigger PSU to handle it.

# Radeon RX 460 4GB

Radeon RX 460 is another amazing card that you can get for a lower budget. The 4GB variant of RX 460 is available for a cost as low as $140 in the online markets. According to the benchmark tests, this card definitely shines in various tests and is almost equivalent to the GTX 960.

With around 50 FPS  in GTA V, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, this game is expected to give playable FPS in the Moderate settings for Battlefield one provided the game gets a stable release without any crashes and bugs (that is least expected, though)

# Geforce GTX 960 2GB:

The GTX 960 offers a step-up from the GTX 950 in terms of performance. The card comes in both 2GB and 4GB versions, but EVGA has a 4GB version that costs as low as $190—which is the better deal, considering the 2GB version costs, on average, about ~$170-$180.

As far as in-game performance goes, the GTX 960 is capable of maxing out anything on a 1080p monitor and can even handle games at 1440p resolution fairly well.

However, with the release of the VR-friendly RX 480 coming soon, if you want to have the ability to use the Oculus Rift—or any other VR headset—you may want to forego the GTX 960 and wait until the RX 480 is available for purchase.

Recommended Graphics cards for BattleField One:

#NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070

NVIDIA made waves with the release of their new GTX 1070 and 1080. In terms of performance, the GTX 1070 is actually on par with NVIDIA’s previous generation flagship GPU, the GTX 980 Ti.

All for a fraction of what the 980 Ti costs.

Or, in other words, the GTX 1070 is the most affordable 4K-ready graphics card every made.

Early benchmarks show that the Founder’s Edition of the GTX 1070 can achieve ~45 FPS onGTA V and around ~50 FPS on Metro: Last Light at 4K resolution.

And, as the card has just been released, it’s likely those benchmarks will go up even higher with better coolers and higher clock rates from the third-party distributors, as well as better driver performance.

#R9 Fury X

While the R9 Fury X was able to hold it’s own against the GTX 980 Ti in most benchmarks, now with the release of the GTX 1070 and the 1080, the Fury X has become somewhat obsolete, especially considering the 1070 can perform on par with it (and, in most cases, better than it) for a fraction of the price.

Of course, there is also the R9 Fury and Fury Nano, but again, for the same price or less, the GTX 1070 will offer a big performance increase.

So, for now, rather than spending over $600 on the Fury X, you’d be better off going with a GTX 1070, a GTX 1080, or waiting until later this year when the RX 490 and 490X release.

#NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080

The new top-dog on the scene, the GTX 1080 is perhaps the most impressive video card ever made.

With an MSRP of about ~$700, the GTX 1080 is one of the few single-GPU options that can handle 4K gaming and VR-gaming without breaking a sweat.

Early benchmarks show that the Founder’s Edition of the GTX 1080 can achieve ~56 FPS onGTA V and around ~65 FPS on Metro: Last Light at 4K resolution.

Ultimately, if you are looking for the absolutely on the market for the best Graphics Card for Gaming, the 1080 is the one for you.
