Red Dead Redemption 2 Finally Gets DLSS Support

Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 has finally received the DLSS treatment with a new update that just launched today. According to testing from Nvidia, you can expect around a 45% frame rate bump by running the game in performance mode at 4K and max settings with an RTX 20 series or 30 series graphics cards.

It’s great to see Red Dead Redemption 2 finally getting Nvidia’s image reconstruction technology. When the game launched it was notorious for being seriously demanding on GPU hardware, to the point where the then-flagship RTX 2080 Ti could not hit 60FPS at 4k resolution unless you dropped the image quality settings a bit.

Now with the DLSS update, you can expect your 2080 Ti to hit 60FPS in performance mode (according to Nvidia’s testing) at 4K resolutions, at least with DLSS in performance mode, which is 1080p reconstructed to 4K.

Products from the Ampere lineup also fare well with the DLSS update, the RTX 3060 12GB can achieve almost 45FPS with the same DLSS settings and resolution compared to just 30FPS with no DLSS. If we jump up to Nvidia’s current flagship (well, technically it’s the penultimate Ampere, as there’s still the RTX 3090), the RTX 3080 Ti can deliver around 85 fps instead of just 59 fps.
