How To Boost FPS in Battlefield V – Ultimate Guide 2023

In this guide, we will talk about how you can boost and increase your FPS and the overall performance of Battlefield V on your PC. By having the maximum frame rate that you can have in Battlefield V, you are making sure you are not missing the benefits that come with it.

You know that feeling when you play Battlefield V, and it feels like something doesn’t quite match up? Well, forget that. After following all the steps in this guide, you will finally be able to enjoy super smooth and responsive gameplay with the highest frames per second.

Your gaming experience depends a lot on your hardware(gaming PC), but that’s just one part.

I see this daily with numerous clients. They have the latest and best hardware on the market, but their games run on very low fps and have issues like stuttering, fps drops, freezes, high latency, etc.

After tuning up things like power settings, graphics/video settings, and everything else you will see below, the performance improvements are huge and they end up with smoother gameplay and a huge increase in fps.

How to boost FPS in Battlefield V

Step 1 – Optimize Startup apps and processes.

You may have many apps and background windows services running that you don’t use at all, consuming valuable resources such as Ram, CPU, and sometimes even GPU. This can cause you to have fewer resources to run Battlefield V and decrease the overall performance and frame rate. Let’s stop every app you don’t use from running in the background.

The process is identical on Windows 10 and Windows 11.

Now you should see a list of all background apps. To disable all background Windows apps, toggle off “Let Apps Run in the Background”.

Step 2 – Graphics Optimizations to increase fps

This section of the guide will focus entirely on your graphics card. From optimizing the graphics card settings for NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards, uninstalling and then reinstalling the graphics driver, making sure everything works as it should, and ensuring that the graphics card is on MSI Mode to ensure the best performance and frame rate in Battlefield V.

What I want you to do is go ahead and download Display Driver Uninstaller on your PC.

Next, go to the search bar, type System Configuration, and click on it.

The System Configuration tab should pop up; navigate to the Boot tab, and tick the option Safe boot.

How to boot into Safe Mode

After the restart, you should be in a Safe Mode environment.

Go ahead and look for the Display Driver Uninstaller folder you previously downloaded, extract it, and run the “Display Driver Uninstaller.exe” file as administrator.

Run Display Driver Uninstaller as administrator.

Once DDU is up and running, go to the top left corner and click on Options, scroll down, and tick the option “Prevent downloads of drivers from “Windows Update”……..”, click OK and Close.

Prevent download of drivers from Windows Updates on DDU.

On the right side, click on the option “Select Device Type” and choose GPU, and under that, select the GPU manufacturer (NVIDIA, AMD, INTEL).

Press “Clean and do not Restart”.

Best AMD Radeon Software settings for Battlefield V

Now let’s go ahead and optimize the Radeon Software graphics settings to achieve the best FPS possible in Battlefield V. You can copy the settings from the photo below, but if you want a more in-depth guide, you can go ahead and read my guide on how to optimize AMD driver settings.

Here is a quick sum-up of what matters:

  • Turn animations and effects off.
  • Turn overlays off.
  • Almost all settings are turned off and set to performance where applicable.
  • Do some tests with the Anti-Lag option. I’ve found out that you shouldn’t be using it on a high-end graphics card, but on older ones, it helps. So take like few minutes and do some tests with it.
  • On resolution settings menu, make sure to choose your screen resolution.
  • Set the refresh rate to the highest possible to match your gaming monitor’s refresh rate.

Now, let’s go ahead and optimize the NVidia Control Panel settings to achieve the best FPS possible in Battlefield V. You can either copy the graphics settings from the photo below, or if you want a more in-depth guide, you can go ahead and read my guide on how to optimize NVidia driver settings.

Here is a quick sum-up of what matters:

  • Almost all settings are turned off and set to performance where applicable.
  • Set the refresh rate to the highest possible to match your gaming monitor’s refresh rate.
  • On the Advanced Display Settings option set your resolution to your monitor’s native resolution.
  • Choose No Scaling unless you play on stretched resolutions.
  • On the Resolution Settings menu, make sure to choose your screen resolution.

Step 4 – Enable Hardware-Accelerated GPU scheduling.

If you are streaming Battlefield V on OBS or Streamlabs, don’t enable this setting because it can cause lags and micro stutters in your stream and recording. You will get slightly lower FPS while playing Battlefield V if you don’t enable HAGS, but everything will be smooth and stable.

On the other hand, if you are not streaming, turn it on because it will give you a small fps boost and help you achieve optimum fps in Battlefield V.

We are pretty much done with the video settings part of this guide.

Let’s move on to Windows settings!

Step 6 – Best Power Plan for Battlefield V

I’ve tested every single power plan available, and I can say that the one working the best, especially for Battlefield V, is the Bitsum Highest Performance Power Plan.

The Bitsum Highest Performance Power Plan is a custom power plan for Windows that is designed to maximize performance and increase fps. The plan applies various tweaks to the operating system, including disabling certain power-saving features and setting processor and graphics performance levels to their highest setting.

As a result, the Bitsum Highest Performance Power Plan can help to improve system performance, particularly for PC gamers. However, it is important to note that the plan can also lead to increased energy consumption and reduced battery life even on new gaming laptops.

Therefore, it is only recommended for use on any desktop gaming pc.

Step 7 – ISLC(Intelligent Standby List Cleaner)

ISLC is a PC program that can clean and optimize your RAM standby list, which is a compiled list of all the apps and services that are currently running on your machine. The idea behind ISLC is that by trimming this list down to only the essentials, you can improve your PC’s performance and stability.

So, how does it work? ISLC will first identify all of the apps and services that are currently running on your machine. It will then look through your standby list and determine which of these apps and services are no longer needed. Finally, it will remove them from the standby list, freeing up valuable resources for other applications.

The internet is filled with different theories about this app, but one thing’s for sure- if you have a low-end system or want to make things just a little bit quicker then give it try!

You can download ISLC here: ISLC Download Page

  • Set Wanted Timer Resolution to 0.5
  • Tick Enable Custom Resolution
  • Tick Start ISLC minimized and auto-Start monitoring.
  • Tick Launch ISLC on user logon
  • Change the “Free memory is lower than” option from 1024 to any of the values below(depending on your RAM)
    • Take half of your RAM and multiply by 1024. Put the number you got on the “Free memory is lower than” option.
    • For example, if you have 16 GB of RAM installed on your computer, the number should be 8192. ( 16/2*1024). You can check the table below with all the values.
  • Once you’ve done that, click on Start, and that’s it.
  • ISLC will start running automatically every time your PC boots up, so you don’t have to worry again.

If, after restarting your PC, you notice that “Current timer resolution” is not 0.5ms exactly, and it’s a number like 0.4988, do the following:

Run CMD as Administrator and type the following commands one by one:

run cmd as administrator
  • bcdedit /set useplatformtick yes
  • bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes
  • bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock

If the last one gives back an error that the value doesn’t exist, that’s fine. If the value doesn’t exist, it’s already off.

Step 8 – Optimize BIOS to Boost FPS in Battlefield V

BIOS settings are really crucial when it comes to boosting and increasing your FPS in Battlefield V.

One of the first things to check is the BIOS version; if it’s out of date, it’s worth updating to the latest version since manufacturers provide updates regularly either to address specific issues or to enhance the overall performance.

The thing that will make the biggest difference in performance and fps is to make sure that all your ram modules are working and running at maximum speed.

Next, take a look at the CPU settings; if they’re set too low, the CPU will be underutilized, leading to reduced performance and lower fps. CPU power-saving features could also hinder the performance so that’s worth checking as well.

By taking the time to optimize the BIOS, you can help to ensure that your computer system is running at its best.

Below you can find the best BIOS settings to improve your FPS in Battlefield V.

Optimize AMD system BIOS Settings

  • Make sure XMP or DOCP is set to Profile 1 / Enabled.
  • Precision Boost Overdrive: Enabled
  • Re-size BAR support: Enabled
  • Find the options for FAN controls, and if you have a water cooler, make sure to set it to 100% at all times and optimize the rest of the coolers to work at higher speeds to keep temperatures as low as possible.
