Red Dead Redemption 2 just received an update that adds support for NVIDIA DLSS. Here are two videos of the 4K benchmark, the first with DLSS balanced, the second with DLSS performance. As a bonus, we also offer you a video of the game on Stadia.

HDR is not always well implemented in games when their engine isn't truly meant for it, and Red Dead Redemption 2 is without a doubt the perfect example when it comes to AAA titles. Despite the release of an update which improved HDR compared to what it looked like when the game originally launched on consoles, it still does not look convincing enough, as proven by today's videos.

Playing Red Dead Redemption 2 in native 4K on PC is not a piece of cake, even if you own the best graphics card and best CPU of the market. The game is very generous when it comes to graphics settings, but Rockstar included a bunch of presets to choose from. We gave the balanced preset a try to see if it would allow us to enjoy native 4K and a perfectly smooth framerate (some options are even set to low on that preset, among which lighting quality). In gameplay, it is pretty much the case, except for some close-ups during the muddy and rainy fight against the colossus outside the saloon, but cutscenes see a few frame drops. We only had time to try the preset in Valentine and in the wild so we're bound to encounter areas where framerate will suffer, but what is certain is that playing in native 4K offers much crisper background landscapes compared to playing with an 80% resolution scaling and most settings set on high and medium (and a couple on ultra).

We're back with the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 and a mix of ultra, high and medium settings this time. We also set resolution scaling to 80% so it's not native 4K anymore but at least, the framerate seems rock solid for now. We'll keeping searching for the best possible settings with the best possible image quality, so stay tuned.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on PC but those who thought they were going to enjoy high frame rates with ultra settings will have to think twice before they launch the game. You see, this port has clearly been built for the future and as Nvidia stated yesterday, it's demanding as hell if you want to push everything to the maximum. We've tried the ultra settings with a 66% resolution scaling and our RTX 2080 Ti struggles to maintain frame rate above the 40s at times when some effects kick in. We'll need more time to tweak the settings to find the best results for us, but until then, here are 2 videos we recorded tonight.

Red Dead Redemption 2 patch 1.09 brings a new HDR display mode called "Game Mode", supposed to modify the rendering of the game compared to the old "Cinematic Mode". The difference is indeed visible and here is a video captured on Xbox One X, as usual in 4K HDR.
