  1. Can I play this Battlefield 2042 on my MAC PC? I have Mac OS Catalina version 10.15.6. Processor 2.7Ghz Quad core intel i7. 16GB memory 1600 Mhz DDR3 Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536MB. Display 2880×1800
    I will get an HD tv connect it to the Mac for a bigger screen. Is this ok?
    Thanks

    • Hi Wesley,

      Your graphics card doesn’t appear to meet the minimum requirements. Additionally, you’d need to run Windows on the Mac as macOS is not supported.

  2. my laptop config 4600h 1660tim 16gb ram can run battlefield 2042

  3. I got a laptop with a gtx 1660ti, that’s the only spec that I don’t think fits in the recommended requirements, you think I’ll be able to run at least @ 60fps with DirectX 12?

    Reply to Timothy
    • I wouldn’t expect to run it on all high, but I think on low settings with some fine tuning you should be fine.

  4. So I check my pc specs for battlefield 2042 and I passed them all except for the video card and dedicated video ram. I have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 super and 6 GB of dedicated video ram. Will I still be able to run it?

    Reply to Cosme
    • Yes you’ll be able to run it. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 super is powerful enough to run Battlefield 2042.

  5. So I just bought an HP Pavillion Gaming Desktop PC with a Ryzen 5 3500, 8GB RAM (will upgrade soon to 16GB) and a RTX 2060. According to the minimum requirements I won’t be able to play this game, I am correct or will it still run on a Ryzen 5 3500?

    Reply to jrr
    • Your AMD Ryzen 5 3500 should be enough to run it. GPU matters the most and your RTX 2060 will be enough to run Battlefield 2042!

      Reply to Pixel
    • Battlefield 2042 should be playable on a GTX 1650. I wouldn’t expect 60 FPS though.

      Reply to Pixel
  6. my specs are 1660 ti 6gb vram ryzen 7 4800h 16gb of ram 3200Mhz

    will i be able to run 60fps at 1080p?

    people said the game is poorly optimized and i hope they will fix it

    Reply to Chris
    • You should be good with your 1660 ti but you’ll want to stick to lower settings to hit 60fps at 1080p.
