Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC can now be played in 4K resolution at maximum detail, with an average framerate above 60 fps - without having an expensive RTX 3090 card. You see, the game has just received support for Nvidia's DLSS technology, which means that with the help of the advanced upscaling technique from a lower resolution, it can be performed in a higher resolution without a significant impact on performance.
In translation, if you have an RTX 3070, for example, without DLSS with the same settings at 4K resolution, RDR2 goes to 42 fps on average. With DLSS in Performance mode, the game at the same settings jumps to an average of 61.6 fps, which is great news. In case you have an RTX 3060 Ti, at maximum details above 60 fps you can run the game in 2560 × 1440 resolution.
In short, Nvidia promises a performance jump of up to 45%, depending on the graphics card and game scenes. But there is a significant promise that all RTX cards can now run RDR 2 at maximum detail at 60 fps. In the case of the weakest RTX 2060, that means 1080p @ 60 fps - but hey, we're talking about the maximum details of the game. Of course, the card itself must be combined with the appropriate processor to achieve this result.
To get the DLSS option in Red Dead Redemption 2, you need to update the drivers for your RTX card. And you also need to update the game to the latest version, which means that DLSS will probably not be supported in the banned version of the game until further notice.
And just to avoid confusion - this only applies to owners of RTX cards 20xx and 30xx series. For everyone else, the game will continue to run as before.
