    I forgot to mention, that I moved all BF1 cache to SSD drive as the game itself

    Cache typically located in C:\My documents\Battlefield 1

    Moved entirely folder to SSD with symlink.

    How did you move the BF1 Cache to another drive? Since my documents folder is not on my C:/ SSD drive the Cache is located on a HDD. The game itself is installed on the SSD though. Can't find any options to just move the Cache.

    Guys, here`s a little fix that might improve your FPS .

    1. Set gametime.maxvariablefps to your monitor refresh rate.

    2. Change in game the RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit to test which setting works best for you.

    RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 1 - significantly lowers and limits the GPU usage to 70 %(can not reach higher) . CPU usage lowers abit down to 70 %. A lot of sluttering and FPS limited to 50.
    RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 0 - (default value) - 99 % GPU Usage | 95-100 % CPU Usage.
    RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 2 - 99 % GPU Usage | 70-85 % CPU usage.
    RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 3 - 99 % GPU Usage | 70-85 % CPU usage.

    For my config RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 2 gives the best combo. Hyperthreading is enabled.

    3. Create user.cfg file in your Battlefield 1 Main folder. Paste the following lines in this file.

    gametime.maxvariablefps 60 (your monitor refresh rate)
    RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 2

    Guys, this really works. Made the user.cfg and now game runs so damn well on ultra with my old i5 2500k (OC) and gtx 1060. Try it! Got drops and bad fps with medium settings before.

    Nvidia people may want to go into the control panel and make sure the global settings aren't rendering games in a higher res and then downscaling them. I was having problems on my 1080 and then I realized control panel was defaulted to run everything at 2x res and then downscale it. I turned that off and now my game never drops below 80 fps on ultra. I'm still not happy with that number though, and I had to cap my framerate at 80 because I can't stand dips and they were getting me killed. I should be getting 120+ easy.

    The framerate render thing did nothing for me btw. Tried all the different settings. If anything it seemed to make it worse. I'm really disappointed in the DX12 setting. It says right there it can "significantly" improve performance when in actuality it destroys your framerate.

    Confirmed
    with i5 4690 ( NONE K )
    GTX 970 G1 Gaming
    8GB DDR3 Ram Bus 1600

    Work very Well On Ultra + DX12 On And GPU Memory OFF

    God Bless You Man

    Had the same problem got similar hardware. I put settings to high then switched to borderless windowed mode. Now every map is 60 fps at 1080p. Some maps played well at fullscreen and others no so much. Set battlefield 1 to high priority also. Game ain't optimized at all yet it's a port of course.

    No framedrops while playing but huge frame drops when I click on that Shadowplay thing to record the last minute and worse frame rates (mostly crashes) when I stream on Twitch.

    I have a FX-8350 @4.4Ghz 12 GB RAM & a 1060 6GB getting between 60-80 fps with everything maxed but sometimes randomly dips on 64 man servers. Everything is running between 70-90% usage and the graphic options don't seem to change anything in terms of fps. Very confused.

    I had fps drops on all settings with my GTX 760, I5 3470 on windows 7 x64, cpu usage was always on 100%. Affter installing Windows 10 x64 all fps drops was disappeared, even on Amien. CPU usage now 65-70%.

    Turn down the lighting, the effects and that undergrowth stuff. Disable motionblur by pulling the slider to 0% and also edit your "PROFSAVE_profile" file. Open it with wordpad and find the line "GstRender.MotionBlurEnabled" it should say "1", put it to "0". BTW running in borderless instead of Fullscreen gave me a couple of FPS with DX12 and AMD r9 390 - so something to try out it may work. Note: Crossfire/SLI needs the Fullscreen setting AFAIK. You can also run "razer cortex" with the boost option on. Disable viruskiller while playing is more tricky, you can use Avast, that has a disable button. Maybe disable windows update service and "BITS". That should help the dips.

    I dont understand this fix you guys are talking about, is on the console in the game or I actually need to create the file?

    I have a i5 4690k and GTX 960 4GB and run smoothly at Medium Settings with zero frame drops.

    You need to make a file, nevermind the console.

    "3. Create user.cfg file in your Battlefield 1 Main folder. Paste the following lines in this file.

    gametime.maxvariablefps 60 (your monitor refresh rate)
    RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 2

    "

    I did it and sadly no change, even on medium I get dips to the 30s, I dont know If is because I have a bad cpu

    8320 3.5ghz
    8gb ram
    rx 480 8gb

    the only thing that fixed my FPS drops was disabling DX12

    Do you think If I buy more ram I will be able to play smoothly? I already tied doing overclock to the CPU and I get the same fps drops
