Battlefield 1 Played on Inizio X200

Will the entire game perform like the video?

For every game we test, we identify portions of the game which are normally the most taxing on the hardware. So, you can rest assured that the entire gameplay experience will be the same or perhaps even better. We have done the entire testing in Single Player mode only.

Very few games are well optimized to run properly on all the hardware available out there, so there are a few tricky graphic settings in every game which do not follow the general settings pattern. We try to optimize the game to maintain the right performance v/s visual balance.

Push every setting to the highest, and you have the best-looking game but could lead to performance issues like stutters, frame drops, and overall lag. Low graphic settings reduce immersion and hence reduce the overall experience. Therefore, identifying the impact of every graphic setting, both in terms of visual fidelity and performance impact, is critical.

How we record and present the content

We run the games on the exact configuration that you can buy. We record using an external capture card which gives very accurate results on how the machine will perform. There are, however, some limitations due to which you cannot see exact visuals.

Raw footage is of mammoth ~30 GB/minute size (at full HD) and YouTube reduces the size to a mere ~40 MB/minute. This results in a heavy loss in image quality as shown below. So, compared to what you see in the videos, you can expect the real game to look much better.

Target FPS & Graphic Settings:

Target FPS depends on the game. Most RPG Games give a smooth playing experience above 30 FPS while the same is terribly low for a First-Person shooter.

The Target FPS for Battlefield 1 is 60+ FPS. This is where we want to be in terms of FPS during the game. However, that does not mean that the FPS will always be strictly above 60.

 

Ours vs Nvidia GeForce Recommended Settings

For most games, Nvidia have their own recommendations in terms of graphic settings you should use. They provide a good reference to begin with, but tweaking is necessary for ideal experience. Also, in some instances, like Batman Arkham Knight & Battlefield 1, Nvidia GeForce Experience Application doesn’t optimize the game at all.

Test Results & Conclusion:

Battlefield 1 has different demands while in air and when on ground. There is a huge increase in performance during the missions where the player is flying an aircraft. We have done tests on both such locations. And the results are also divided as such.

 

Test results when player is not flying an aircraft:

During the duration of our test, the FPS maintained an overall average of 59.7 FPS with a FPS Deviation of just 4.3. Deviation tells us how much variation was observed during the entire test. The lower the deviation, the lesser the fluctuations. If the FPS were to stay constant at 60 for the whole test, deviation would be 0.

Test results when player is flying an aircraft:

Flying in Battlefield is quite easy on the hardware. FPS was always above 60 FPS with a high overall average of 104 FPS

Conclusion:

Battlefield 1 is very smooth and stable on the recommended settings while maintaining excellent visual fidelity. Pascal series cards are quite capable of handling most games you throw at them and Gigabyte’s Nvidia GTX 1050 G1 gaming is the one of the best variant of the 1050 chipset.
