One of the most anticipated new games releases from DICE, Battlefield V, is set to release to the non-paying public on November 20th. Outside of being another AAA title in the long-running Battlefield series, the game was to include ray tracing capabilities which the new NVIDIA RTX series of cards support with their ray tracing cores.
When the NVIDIA Geforce RTX cards released, we saw a lot of demos and the improvements were obvious and reflections are other ray traced surfaces looked beautiful. The question has always been the performance, but we can test that now. Though the game was supposed to include this anyway, early access through Origin’s Access program will allow us to see how these RTX series cards perform a few days before public release.
Below is a screenshot of Jaqub (DICE)‘s twitter account stating that it can now be enabled in-game.
Stay tuned for benchmarks to be added into this article as we get the game downloaded and find a nice place to benchmark. Finally, the RTX cards can flex their muscle – let’s see how it performs!
