    I know that there a lot of posts like this but they did not help my case.
    My specs are:
    Core i7 6700k
    MSI z170 a krait gaming 3x
    16 Gb DDR4 (Single Slot)
    EVGA 1080ti
    Seasonic Prime 850W 80+ Titanium
    Win 10 Pro 64-bit installed on SSD.
    The game installed on 7200 rpm WD 2017 model.

    So when I run BF5 multiplayer in 2560*1080*144*G-Sync with Ulta settings, 55 fov, 100% resolution scale I have average 60 frames with drops up to 40. It's playable but according to tests on youtube, I should much more.
    Here is an example in higher resolution
    Switching DX12 does not make any difference.
    If I put fov to 85 and resolution scale to 200% I will have average 45-50 with drops to 35.
    If I put everything to Low 1080р*60Hz*No G-Sync with resolution scale 100% I will have 70 average with drops to 40 in Rotterdam

    What I tried so far:
    Turn on/off vsync in NVidia CP
    Turn on/off NVidia Shadowplay, Origin in Game, Xbox thing
    Changed renderdevice.renderaheadlimit from 0 to 3
    Changed Virtual Reality pre rendered frames to 1 and other values
    Turn on/off Future frame and Memory limit in BF properties.
    Run BF with -RenderDevice.RenderAheadLimit 0 -WorldRender.MotionBlurEnable 0
    Turn on/off Thread optimization in NVidia CP
    Set Power Management Mode to Max Performance

    I have clean Windows copy recently installed on clean formatted SSD with latest NVidia, Intel, MSI drivers, and even updated bios.
    I do not have anything extra in Processes such as Anti Virus or something. CPU, RAM, GPU, HDD, and LAN is not loaded.
    When I run BF GPU is loaded on 60-70%, CPU around 80.

    The only thing I found on the web is to get windows revision before 1809 and block updates.
    Or install 387.92 NVidia drivers.
    First is not an option for me. Second well I can't install a 32-bit version of 387.92 and I can't find a 64-bit version for my 1080ti.
    Which still is not an option.

    By the way, I have the same issues with BF1. Which is funny cause before the upgrade I used 970GTX with better frame rate.

    The other games match the average frame rate according to youtube tests. For example Kingdom Come, Dishonered2, Prey, Quake.

    PLEASE HELP ME HERE!!!

    That is way to low fps, i have 145-170 fps in Rotterdam @ 1080p and mixed settings with a 1080Ti and Ryzen 1600x (6c/12thread) cpu.
    Are you sure that you are running your GPU in a 16x pcie line and that its actually working at 16x? It sounds like your GPU is bottlenecked. You have to Google on how to check because its been a while since i did it myself.
    I have the 1809 Uppdate and its great, who told you to not have the latest build? I have only seen people saying that 1809 is the best one.
    I also have the latest nvidia driver.

    Run the game with DX11 ,turn FFR to ON and put render 1 frame ahead, turn of V-sync in game but leave it on in the nvidia controlpanel if you going to use G-sync. If you are gaming above your monitors refreshrate put a cap to the game 2 fps below your monitors refresh rate to make sure G-sync is not getting dissabled (only works within monitors refresh rate).
    Even in dx12 with FFR OFF it still renders 1 frame ahead.

    That's what you get with singlechannel ram.

    You may be right. I did not Think that a siglechannel ram could have any bigger impact as long as you have more then 8Gb that seem to be to low for many games today, im not sure if BF V need more then 8Gb but this guy got a major bumb in fps by going with a second stick, i would think he is running them the proper way (dual channel). Mybe 2x4Gb in dualchannel would have work better to.

    Frostbite is sensitive to ram, especially the minimum fps depend on the right balance. Speed, latency, bandwidth. The amount on the other side doesn't really matter if you got at least 12gb.

    Tests from BF1, but it should be the same on BF5 as it uses the same engine.

    Unfortunately my set-up isn't capable of playing BFV smoothly.

    Tried everything to get it working better but alas I'm being bottlenecked by my CPU. A i5 4690k isn't capable of running this. Need a 8 thread CPU minimum.

    Pretty sad I won't be playing much as it's just not enjoyable stuttering all over the place.

    Such heavy reliance on the CPU rather than GPU is akin to DICE shooting themselves in the foot, I'd imagine not many people have a i7 4770K or greater. No wonder the sales for this game were the worst in Battlefield history!

    It turned into vulkan. It sucks to have dx12 only.

    Can´t turn off AA for FPS boost.
    Can´t cap my FPS with AMD Radeon settings.
    What is this monitor refresh rate setting doing? Does it set Vsync on monitor refresh rate? Useless command, if I set to run my monitor on 144Hz on Control Panel, then I´d use it everywhere, no need to adjust it.

    Playing on I5 [email protected]
    15GB RAM
    Fury [email protected] with medium-high settings- the FPS is so unstable it hurts my eyes. Even when FPS is at 80\90 FPS it fluctuates so quickly it´s awful. Not to mention the dips below 60FPS. I get it, 64 player MP game needs better CPU, but I should be able to set the game so that at least I get stable FPS, LOW but STABLE.
    Only option to cap FPS IN GAME are 60(which is stupidly low for FPS game), 125 and 200(not with my HW). I need it to be capped @75 or 90.(Or 70\80)

    And then there´s the server lag and Origin disconnects, glad I took only 1 month Access, after yesterdays server lag Cancelled my sub.

    Edit. PS Any1 knows where to find console commands?(for FPS cap and showFPS, maybe some lagometer etc)

    Runs fine for me with ultra settings at 4k. Mostly over 60fps with dips in some maps. My fov settings are in the 90 range so could probably get better performance turning those down some.

    2700x / titan xp (2016) with evga aio cooler / 16 gigs 3600mhz ram at 3200mhz / crosshair vi hero mobo.

    Strange. I have about the same setup and run med on all but ultra on mesh quality and have a fairly solid 100-120fps. It does dip to 60-70 in the craziest of firefights on some maps but doesn't feel choppy very often. It was when I started optimizing, ugh it was unplayable. It could be better still(my cpu/mb/memory all need an upgrade), but I've finally after hrs of trying performance tweaks from previous BF games I've used over the yrs and ones others suggested feel like I can finally play the game instead of testing if my next tweak worked.

    ATM I'm running on i5 [email protected], GTX1060 [email protected], 16gb Corsair [email protected], 144hz Acer w/OC mode off or normal. I have the game on Samsung 250gb SSD and newest Win update on a 7,200rpm HDD. Normal "performance" settings in user.cfg file I made and in the PROFSAVE_profile, Fullscreen Optimizations off, dx11 with ffr on and dx12 w/o ffr on seem about the same for me. Though the fps seems a micron better with dx11 and ffr on. Turning in-game settings all to low didn't change my fps much more than 5 or so, so I kept it med like I said. Worth the sacrifice to me. If it was true competitive mode I'd go all low probably. I also turn Windows visual effect to best performance before I game. I can't think of anything more that others haven't mentioned in the many performance threads on here or the regular overclockers things to bios and Windows us gamers all do. If I do I'll post it.

    I've done the FS Optimisation off, HPET off in BIOS, DX11 FFR on. Running all low, all effects off like film grain. Latest drivers. Vertical FOV set to 64 so equates to horizontal 85.

    Out of interest what PROFSAVE settings are you using? , I had little luck with these.

    I think from this forum the number one issue for most is people is performance. Hopefully DICE can address some of these with patching as BF1 certainly ran much more fluidly and it uses the same engine. The option to turn off TAA would be welcome to boost performance.

    Having played about 10 hours the game is good, Devastation Conquest is my favourite on rotation.

    cap fps at monitor refresh rate/vsync. should drop CPU usage.

    His fps is already below monitors refresh rate. That will do nothing at all.

    Already cap to my monitor ...

    render scale : 100 % : CPU 90/100% - GPU 30/50%
    But if i push everyting to ultra and renderscale 200% : CPU 60/70% - GPU 95/100%
    But the FPS still dropping in MP

    SLI support? we are a lot of people using SLI configurations giving th worst experience ever seen before in a battlefield, I have a good PC but my SLI is just garbage only on this game, just because developers are focusing in new RTX cards, Visual effects in a FPS game is not really necessary, but well Nvidia pay good amount of money so we will need to wait a lot to play a real battlefield

    Battlefield V requires i5-6600K minimum and it has much better single core performance. i7-6820HK is below the spec, despite the higher number. Blame Intel. ;)
