Battlefield 1 system requirements ask for a Core i5-6600K

The system requirements for EA's upcoming World War I-inspired first person shooter Battlefield 1 are out. While the video card requirements are surprisingly modest, the baseline CPU that developer DICE recommends is a Core i5-6600K, a quad-core CPU with 3.9 GHz turbo clocks and 6MB of cache. That requirement looks to be a bit of hyperbole, since DICE also states that an AMD FX-6350—a much slower CPU—will handle the game too. Full system requirements are shown below:


  • Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
  • Intel Core i5-6600K or AMD FX-6350 CPU
  • 8 GB of RAM
  • NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB graphics card
  • 50GB of free HDD space


  • 64-bit Windows 10 or later
  • Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD FX-8350 CPU
  • 16 GB of RAM
  • NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB or an AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB

Even the recommended configuration's graphics card spec is relatively modest compared to what some gerbils are packing in their chubby little computers. The Frostbite engine has always scaled well to various levels of performance, and DICE says that BF1 has is the most optimized version of the engine yet. Battlefield 1 hits Origin on October 21, although purchasers of the deluxe edition (or EA Access members) can get a three-day head start on October 18.
