[H]ard|OCP have been spending a lot of time with Battlefield V, determining the effect of enabling ray tracing on performance. In their latest look, they compare the effect of running the game on an i9-9700K running at 4.6GHz versus an i7-7700K at 5GHz. Their results are quite clear, when testing they saw a performance difference between 1-1.5 fps; well within the margin of error.
When it comes to BFV, your CPU is not the limiter on your performance.
"We have been doing some deep dives into playing Battlefield V 64-person multiplayer lately and testing what exactly the cost of using NVIDIA Ray Tracing is in terms of framerate performance using new NVIDIA RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 cards. We did get questioned on using a 5GHz overclocked 7700K instead of the suggested CPU that EA recommends."
