What You Need To Enjoy The Wild West

Red Dead Redemption 2 has finally arrived on PC and while we’ve know the recommended specs for a while we can finally get a glimpse of actual performance.  Guru 3D loaded up 30 GPUs, from the GTX 1060 and RX 470 up to the RX 5700XT and RTX 2080 Ti to see how they perform at 1080p, 1440p and 4K in both DX12 and Vulkan.  As it turns out even that mighty 2080 Ti struggles to perform at 4K with all settings set to ultra, Guru3D found that leaving textures on ultra while dropping everything to high offered a nice performance boost while retaining the gorgeous graphics of the game; particle count needed to be dropped further, down to medium.

This game also demonstrates the age of NVIDIA’s GTX 1000 family, as they struggle to cope in this post DX11 world.  Take a look at the article while you download the over 100GB game.

That would be tested on the PC gaming wise relative towards graphics card performance with the latest AMD/NVIDIA graphics card drivers. Multiple graphics cards are being tested and benchmarked. We have a look at performance with the newest graphics cards and technologies with 30 graphics cards.
