Red Dead Redemption 2 PC benchmarks- move over Crysis ; UPDATED


  • Red Dead Redemption 2 PC benchmarks- move over Crysis ; UPDATED

    Published by famed GTA creators Rockstar games, the PC version came out yesterday. The game is set at the end of the 19th century and is a prequel to Red Dead Redemption.


    At least on Ultra settings the game is extremely punishing on current generation GPUs. Admittedly it looks gorgeous, the question is does it looks so good as to justify these performance numbers. We  are used to thinking about the GTX 1060 and RX 570 as 1080p 60fps ultra GPUs. Well not in this title.


    Both AMD (19.11.1) and Nvidia (441.12) had game ready drivers released on monday which were used for this test.





    High fps gaming is out of the question at least on ultra settings with current gen GPUs. Await more numbers using more modest settings. Many modern games produce much better framerates on high (rather than ultra) settings with almost no noticable visual downgrades- hopefully that's the case here too. The game supports both DX12 and Vulkan with equivalent framerates, CPU usage is slightly more optimized on vulkan but should not make a difference for most users unless you have an older CPU. For the purpose of the above benchmarking DirectX 12 was used.

    Update - 6/11/2019

    Guru3d has posted their recommended settings in order to optimize performance with minimal visual loss. Most settings changed to high, texture quality maintained at Ultra, graphics API changed to Vulkan.
