Given my specs in my signature what kind of performance should I expect?
With a 2500K (what clock speeds?), 16GB RAM, and a 7870, you should be able to run BMS fine on a 1920x1080 res monitor…. maybe full details or sacrificing a few here-and-there. A couple of years ago, I was running BMS on an i5 750, 16GB RAM, and HD 7970 GHz Edition GPU, but this was driving three 1080p screens plus one 1080p touchscreen and running 4.32. BMS 4.33 obviously needs a bit more GPU power but if you’re only driving one monitor, the 7870 should be able to do just fine… the term “just fine” obviously being a relative term.
I have a slower PC than yours (notebook, i5-2430M @3.0GHz, AMD 6650M 2GB, 4GB RAM). I turned off many performance heavy options and I’m using only 2XAA, but I usually have >60FPS in any of the training missions I tried (still haven’t tried the campaign).
I think you should not have issues with your specs, provided you don’t set all the graphical options to the max, and that you’re not using excessive AA or resolution.
My rig yields around 25 fps in campaign. Lower in Balkans though… Yours should kick my computer’s ass…
As Murmur mentioned it will depend on the rendered resolution to some degree (your screen size). Falcon needs only limited AA.
But the specs are OK for up to 1440p displays, within reason.
However the FLOT on day one can always be problematic.
PS Those 2500k usually OC well, if you have adequate cooling.
I’ve upgraded the GPU to….Asus RX 570 OC 4GB
