Battlefield 2042 beta requirements: DICE recommends RTX 2060 or RX 5600 XT, and 8GB of VRAM

Requisitos de Battlefield 2042

EA and DICE have confirmed the Battlefield 2042 requirements, the next installment of the well-known war action franchise that, as the first rumors pointed out, will be set in the not too distant future.

When the first rumors about this title began to appear, we saw that some information placed it as an exclusive for the new generation. Those rumors entered with force, but in the end they were not fulfilled. The truth is that it is totally understandable, and it is that, if EA and DICE had conceived the development of this game as a next generation title, Battlefield 2042 requirements would have been high, and they would have given up on the huge user base that PS4-PS4 Pro and Xbox One-Xbox One X retain.

Ultimately, companies want to make revenue, and in this case, to do so, EA and DICE have to sell games. It is logical to think that you will sell more units of an intergenerational game than of an exclusive one for the new generation, since the second will be giving up a base of more than 166 million players, a figure that represents, together, PS4-PS4 Pro and Xbox One-Xbox One X.

Battlefield 2042 requirements

Returning to the subject of the requirements of Battlefield 2042, the truth is that they are quite affordable, although we are not clear under what conditions we will be able to move it if we only reach that minimum ceiling. I want to think that the game will work in 1080p and medium-low quality in a fluid way, and it is likely that if we fall a little below the GPU level we can play it without problems in 720p, but until I see the first performance tests I can not assure you nothing.

As usual, we will see the requirements of Battlefield 2042 and comment possible equivalence errors, so that you are really clear what you are going to need to move it.

Minimum requirements

  • Windows 10 64-bit as the operating system.
  • Intel Core i5-6600K or AMD FX-8350 processor.
  • 8 GB of RAM.
  • Radeon RX 560 or GTX 1050 Ti graphics card with 4 GB of graphics memory.
  • DirectX 12.
  • 512 KB Internet connection.

The GTX 1050 Ti is more powerful than the Radeon RX 560, so we have a clear equivalence error. The closest thing to this would be the GTX 1050, although it has only 2 GB of graphics memory. As for the processor, the Core i5-6600K has a higher IPC, but the FX-8350 can handle eight threads.

Recommended Requirements

  • Windows 10 64-bit as the operating system.
  • Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor.
  • 16 GB of RAM.
  • Radeon RX 5600 XT or RTX 2060 graphics card.
  • 8 GB of graphics memory.
  • DirectX 12.

We have a serious error in this list, since an RTX 2060 or an RX 5600 XT is recommended, two graphic cards that have a similar performance in rasterization, but the problem is that neither of them meets the recommended 8 GB of graphic memory, as both are only 6 GB. To get to those 8 GB, we should have an RTX 2060 Super or a Radeon RX 5700.

We also found another important error in the CPU equivalences, since the Ryzen 5 3600 is well above the Core i7-4790, both by IPC and by count of cores and threads, since the first has 6 cores and 12 threads and the second 4 cores and 8 threads. The correct equivalency would be a Ryzen 5 1500X.

I remind you that the launch of Battlefield 2042 will take place on October 22, and that it will be compatible with NVIDIA DLSS and NVIDIA Reflex technologies. This means that the game should work better with NVIDIA graphics cards, at least in theory, and that thanks to DLSS we will be able to improve performance without making great sacrifices in terms of image quality. We do not know if it will also come with ray tracing, but at the moment everything seems to indicate that it will not.
