Red Dead Redemption 2 excels in many departments. However, its performance does leave something to be desired. Well, that has now changed thanks to Rockstar and Nvidia. RDR2 now supports DLSS technology which means you will gain FPS and retain the visual quality by just enabling an option.

DLSS is only supported by Nvidia’s RTX cards though. So, if you have any card below RTX 2000 series or have an AMD card, then the setting won’t be available for you. If you do meet the requirements, then you need to update your drivers and enjoy.

Nvidia even released a trailer that shows off the game at 4K DLSS. The enhancements in visuals are big without any significant visual loss. A chart is also uploaded by Nvidia that reveals how much improvement you should expect.

Players can gain up to 45% more FPS by turning on DLSS. From now on, every RTX card can run RDR2 at 1080p 60 FPS, assuming that DLSS is turned on. For 1440p, you will need an RTX 3060 Ti or above, and for 4K, you will need RTX 3070 or better. This is good news for RDR2 players.

More information about the DLSS support is mentioned on the official site.

DLSS support was introduced at the same release time as the Blood Money update for Red Dead Online. The major update lets players participate in a world of civilized crime. New rewards, contracts, and jobs are available. You can read more about the update from our previous article.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. You can also play the game on current-gen consoles, thanks to backward compatibility. However, a native current-gen update hasn’t been revealed yet. Who knows, maybe the game's visuals will improve further after it is remastered for new consoles, just like GTA 5.
