Battlefield™ 2042 Open Beta Increase FPS

This guide will go a bit in-depth to ensure you’re able to get the most of the performance but your visuals might suffer.

Quick note

My specs is DONKEY compared to the minimum requirements yet I am hitting decent 40-50 fps using low settings and the following tricks.

i5-6400 2.70Ghz (Overclocked to 3.09)

GTX 960 4gb VRAM

16gb ram 2667 mHz DDR4

Game installed on SSD 240gb

2560×1440 Main monitor

I’m only idle in the menu…

I would recommend getting the software “Timer Resolution”, basically a placebo in some circumstances but a 0.1% can do a difference.

In-game settings

All of these settings you will find within the menu. It’s bold to assume you haven’t assigned them to this.

Sorry, I do not have any specific advice for AMD users. 🙁

If you are using Shadowplay from Geforce Experience, turn it off. It may cause lag on lower end computers.

Go either with balanced or high performance. It’s up to you to choose the decision as it will use more power.
