Advanced Graphics Settings – NVIDIA DLSS & Ray Tracing

Additionally, you’ll want to change your advanced graphics settings to get a few more frames per second:

  • DLSS – Ultra Performace
  • Ray Traced Ambient Occlusion – Off
  • NVIDIA Reflex Low Latency – Enabled
  • Future Frame Rendering – Off
  • Vertical Sync – Off
  • High Fidelity Objects Amount – Low

As NVIDIA is an official partner of Battlefield 2042, expect the DLSS settings to increase your frame rate significantly. However, you should definitely be turning off ray tracing as that makes your frame rate drop significantly.

Want better performance? Set all settings to low.

Usually these articles find a "key setting" that isn't optimized that should be adjusted.

Here's another tip that fits this article. Lower your resolution to 809x600.
