Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Performance Review and Optimisation Guide

4K Performance - Benchmark Results

As we mentioned on our 1080p results, Red Dead Redemption 2's 4K performance is roughly 50% of the performance that we see at 1080p in our comparative benchmarks. This represents a 50% performance decrease for a 4x increase in pixel count. That's a good trade, depending on how you look at it. 

Using Red Dead Redemption 2's Maximum Preset, we can see that no current-generation graphics card is currently capable of running Red Dead Redemption 2 at 4K 60FPS. That said, with enough settings tweaks, most of today's high-end offers will be able to hit this resolution/framerate target. 

The trick with Red Dead Redemption's PC version is to consider the game's Ultra options as next-generation level settings. Consider them like Crysis' highest presets. Red Dead Redemption 2 can look great at lower settings, proving that you don't need insane hardware to get this game to look good.

If Nvidia don't release a driver that massively improves performance, I can imagine when AMD release their RTX 2080 Super competitor whenever they do, it could actually match a 2080Ti. It's interesting considering GTA V has been one of AMD's worst games. It's one of the most popular of all time yet AMD could never catch Nvidia.Quote

Another fantastic article, thank you Mark !

Nice to know that with reduced settings I can play this at 4k on pretty much any of the three rigs I will have shortly. Whether I will get it though? IDK. I'm not a fan of Rstars games really. Well, apart from Max Payne 3.Quote
