Very low settings are less CPU-intensive, while higher settings are more GPU-intensive.
Many people with minimum specs report that they have inconsistent framerates, caution advised.
If your computer does not meet the Minimum requirements specifications necessary to run this PC version, you may experience significant problems while playing the game.
Unreal Engine 4 is resource heavy. This means close down all programs (including web browsers) if you don't have an above average PC.

"Looks like the workaround with setting the CPU cores affinity does work for me." Game ran smooth without any freezing for them as stated by Dayzru (on the BATTLEGROUNDS forums).
- 1: Press ctrl+alt+delete (or right click on the taskbar)
- 2: Open task manager
- 3: Make sure game is running, not just launcher.
- 4: Go to the tab "Processes" (for Windows 10 users, it's under "Details")
- 5: Find the one (or two) called something like "PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS or BATTLEGROUNDS."
- 6: Right click that one
- 7: Choose 'Set Affinity'
- 8: Uncheck CPU 3
- 9: Press OK. The game will now be working.
