So you’re probably thinking about getting rFactor 2 and wanted to know wether your system was good enough for running it.
The good old question: “can I run it“? 🙂
The graphics of the game are so detailed that you really need to have an high performing system to enjoy it without any problems.
Also considering how realistic the physics of the game are, you don’t want to be missing any frames or have the game run lagged.
Will my computer run rFactor 2?
So without further ado, here’s the minimum system requirements provided by the rFactor2 game developers.
Let’s get into it.
RF2 Minimum requirements:
- CPU SPEED: 1.4 GHz processor
- RAM: 512 MB

- VIDEO CARD: Geforce4 4200 or Radeon 9200
- FREE DISK SPACE: 2 GB
- TOTAL VIDEO RAM: 64 MB
So here are the minimum requirements in order to run rFactor 2 properly.
Make sure you meet these requirements otherwise you’re probably going to have a not so great racing experience.
If you want to run the game on a higher graphics setting, then you’re going to need a slightly higher performing system.
Here are the recommended specifications from the game developers if you’re looking to have an even better experience and be extra sure.
RF2 Recommended requirements:
- CPU: 3.0 GHz Intel i5 or 4.0 GHz AMD FX or better
- RAM: 8 GB

These are the hardware requirements you’d need to have an even greater experience playing with this game.
Can I run rFactor 2 on a laptop?
Yes you can, but you have to keep in mind that the laptop still needs to meet the minimum requirements above.
Make sure you’ve got the latest Windows operating system installed and that your CPU is powerful enough.
The graphics card also needs to have an above average efficiency, which is usually difficult to find on most “default” laptops.
If that’s the case for you, you could then upgrade your laptop or consider switching to PC.
Time to wrap up:
Alright so that’s all for this article on the RF2 system requirements.
Make sure your system meets the minimum requirements in order to run rFactor 2 and if you want to have a better experience then go for the recommended requirements instead of the minimum ones.
