I just recently installed Battlefield V and playing the war stories my game freezes every now and then for a few seconds and then resumes the game and does it again. Moving onto the multiplayer it does that also but no where near as much, so it is playable on multiplayer but is still annoying. I believe my PC is able to run the game no problem. I have tried many thing's to try and fix this issue such as running the game as administrator, making sure my graphics card driver is up to date, repairing the game, uninstalling and reinstalling the game, creating a gaming profile for Nvidia drivers, making sure the game is allowed through firewall, reducing graphics in game etc. This issue is very frustrating and I'm beginning to worry that I can't fix this issue and battlefield is one of my favourite games. I would appreciate any help and if you would like some extra info on my specs etc please feel free to ask.
your cpu speed just barely hits the minimum requirements so playing on LOW settings with 1080 resolution at max is the only option. Also make sure to kill all background apps and if possible install BFV on an SSD. Here is a checklist that might help:
-download and install the latest AMD chipset driver
-update motherboard BIOS
-set physiX to run on GPU in NV control pannel
-perform a windows cleanup: and select remove shader cash
-virus scan / adwcleaner, registry cleaner / ccleaner, HDD defragment / SSD trimm
-disable all overclocks of CPU, GPU, chipset and memory (XMP) < usual suspect >
Also what CPU would u recommend for my system as im getting 32Gb of Ram very soon and if you could suggest a good motherboard and GPU
-240GB will do just remove GTV5 (joke) and also disable the hibernation file on the drive this will save you a lot of space
-AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Boxed AM4 socket • Hexa core @ 3,6GHz-4,2GHz 65W € 195,05 or AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Boxed
depends on the budget too. but remember BFV is a highend game and this cpu is capable of that also the cpu will last you 4 to 5 years maybe more
-motherboards are available in a wider variety the X570 is the fastest chipset for this platform i think any motherboard with this chip will do...
google gives a 'how to' even without opening a site:
the chipset is the main part of a motherboard and fused to it so you buy it in combination with the board example
Before we move of the a higher level of unstable/ crashing BFV games there is a few things to summon up and maybe check once again.
-First i must note that especially during single player missions when moving trough a stage there is always a 'loading point' were data is preloaded for the next scenes. this is for all pc's & consoles alike a single sided freeze one should take into account when identifying freeze issues. The slower the machine the longer this freeze halts the system....
-BFV is now on SSD?
-TRIM the ssd after moving the files to it?
-update ssd firmware (after backup of important files just in case) if possible?
-downgrade the bios with an usb stick
-check system component temperatures during operation
-check resources utilization during game and freezes
-try playing with an open case
