The so-called Battle Royale are an evolution of the competitive modes of first-person shooter games. These are based on putting tens and even hundreds of people on the same large stage competing against each other, so that later only one player is left standing. How many of you may have guessed, they owe their name to the famous movie of Japanese origin. Well, it’s no secret that the success of these game modes has been overwhelming in recent years and that’s why we shouldn’t be surprised by the existence of Call of Duty: Warzone, which combines this popular saga with this type of game multiplayer.
And since the genre was born on PC and the best way to play it is not only with a mouse and keyboard, but also taking advantage of the high frame rates per second that our graphics cards give us. Without forgetting the use of high frequency monitors. All this to obtain an impossible performance in video game consoles. Although not without forgetting the most modest computer users who may be interested in enjoying this game in optimal conditions.
First of all, it takes load off the CPU
In any game where we want to achieve the highest frame rates, it is important that the central processor be as light as possible, since each of the frames always starts in the CPU, so we are interested in it being able to perform its task as quickly as possible. That is why it is highly recommended that you close all programs and processes running in the backgroundsince even the lightest of all is an additional load for the processor.
That is why we recommend you to search msconfig via the search box on the taskbar.
Once you are inside, simply go to the services tab and inside the window and in order to avoid stopping some crucial process for the operating system and its operation. Simply select the checkbox “hide all Microsoft services”. From there, select all the services that you think are superfluous and do nothing more than waste the processor’s performance, click the apply button and then click OK. Which will make the processor much lighter when rendering the game in conjunction with your graphics card.
The ideal CPU for Call of Duty: Warzone
In reality, you shouldn’t have any problems with any CPU that exists on the market, but due to the high load involved in moving dozens of players on the screen, we recommend that you opt for an i5 or higher. As for AMD, a Ryzen 5 3000 series should be the minimum CPU you should look at to keep the game running at its best.
What graphics card do I need to play Call of Duty: Warzone?
We are not facing a game that technically requires a high caliber GPU. At the end of the day, priority is given to the frame rate per second rather than the visual level of the game and we will be able to achieve it without problems with more than modest equipment. And it is that our priority is first to reach 60 FPS and later exceed 120 FPS if possible. The first rate is the minimum at which all first-person shooter games should run and less than that is literally playing in poor conditions. The second is due to the fact that we know that our readers include those with a G-SYNC or FreeSync monitor and it is the maximum number that can be reached with the HDMI interface.
By the way, don’t forget activate FidelityFX Super Resolution in its latest version if you use an AMD graphics card or an NVIDIA GTX. In the event that you are users of an RTX then we recommend you gain more frames through the DLSS. Thanks to this, the action of the game will not drop below 60 frames per second and the game will be completely smooth. Believe us you will appreciate it.
We also recommend that you use Ray Tracing only if you see that when you activate it, your graphics card obtains an acceptable speed. That is, if you find that the game moves below sixty images per second, then we recommend that you do not have it active for a better gaming experience.
To play at 1080p or Full HD resolution
In Full HD we will be enough with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER to exceed 60 FPS and reach performance peaks of 90 FPS, however, if you prefer to use an AMD graphics card then one of the caliber of the RX5500XT or more powerful will give you a few more frames. None of them reach the figure of 120, but it is the demonstration that any gaming graphics card is good enough to play the game in conditions.
If you want more competitive speed rates instead, you’ll have to go for a RTX 2060 or an AMD RX 5600 onwards. We believe that we do not need to tell you that you are going to get more performance with their range equivalents in the RTX and RX 6000 respectively. Although we know that with the high price of graphics cards, an alternative in terms of cost is to opt for the old generation and more so if it is good enough to play Call of Duty: Warzone
To play at 1440p or Quad HD resolution
In the event that your main monitor is a Quad HD in theory you should need a slightly more powerful gaming GPU, specifically a GTX 1660Ti or one Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB.
Both will allow you to exceed 60 FPS and any more powerful graphics card should have no problem doing so. On the other hand, and in order to achieve a graphic refresh rate of 120 or more, we will have to go to a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in the case of NVIDIA or if we have the newest generation, an RTX 3060 Ti will suffice.
To play at 2160p or 4K resolution
To beat 60 FPS at 4K you’re going to need a GeForce RTX 2080 or higher and if you want to reach 120 FPS or more you will have to pull a RTX 3060 Ti or higher. As for the cards AMD RX 6800 or higher, they defend, but below the recommended rate for competitive play. So our recommendation ands do not use native 2160p or 4K mode and pull FSR or DLSS to play in maximum conditions.
In any case, today there are few monitors in the consumer range capable of combining Ultra HD resolution and rates of more than 120 FPS. So today, if you’re considering getting a PC to play Call of Duty: Warzone at eSports performance and 4K resolution, then our advice is to opt for lower resolutions.
