Command to Limit Your Frame Rate in Battlefield 4


Limiting the frame rate in BF4 is something I recommend for everyone with a higher-end system. If your PC is producing a higher frame rate than your monitor can display, you’re just adding heat, fan noise, and drawing more electricity with no benefit.

You should cap your FPS at just over what your monitor can display. Unless you shelled out the extra money for a 120Hz monitor, chances are you have a 60Hz monitor so you can see no more than 60 FPS.

120Hz & 144Hz monitors vs 60Hz in Battlefield 3 & 4

Battlefield 3 120hz 60hz

In the last few years, 120Hz and 144Hzmonitors have been getting a lot of attention from PC gamers.

I’m going to cover some of the benefits of a 120/144Hz monitor and whether it’s suited for your Battlefield 3/4 experience on the PC.

How 60Hz and 120/144Hz monitors differ

Let’s say you’re playing Battlefield and watching your frame rate through the in-game command or a 3rd party program, and you average 90 FPS. If you have a 60Hz monitor, it will display no more than 60 frames each second. If you have a 120Hz monitor, it will display all the way up to 120 frames per second, so you will see 90 FPS. With the 60Hz monitor, some of your graphics processing power is wasted since you’re not seeing the extra frames.
