The long-awaited Nvidia DLSS update for Red Dead Redemption 2 has arrived, and according to Nvidia, you can expect remarkable performance improvements across the board with RTX cards. Nvidia written that “all GeForce RTX gamers” can expect over 60 fps at 1080p with settings boosted up to ultra. Good news, as in our benchmark of the RTX 2060, for example, struggled to reach 60.
Nvidia provides a few examples of what you can expect with its 30 series cards. At 1440p with an RTX 3060 Ti at ultra you should get over 60 fps, while at 4k with an RTX 3070 (or higher fast), you’ll hit 60 fps at ultra settings. Once the patch is installed, you will find the DLSS toggle in the Settings / Graphics menu.
Red Dead Redemption 2 released for PC in 2019, but it still puts even the new 30 Series maps to the test, with quite a bit of tinkering required between resolution, detail, and frame rate. With the DLSS patch, some of these compromises will hopefully no longer be necessary – and that’s good news for people who still use 20 Series cards.
DLSS stands for Deep Learning Super Sampling and uses AI to dynamically increase image quality and frame rates. AMD launched its own alternative last month in the form of AMD Super resolution FidelityFX (or FSR).
This new patch also applies to Red Dead Online, and coincides with the release of its latest update, The price of blood, which is all about high-stakes bank robberies.
