Rockstar Games has just released the latest update for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online, bringing support for Nvidia’s DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is already one of the best-looking games of all time and this update aims to make it even more graphically impressive. With DLSS support, players have the ability to play at higher resolutions thanks to the power of image upscaling. According to Nvidia, enabling DLSS in the game’s graphics settings will give players a performance boost of up to 45% at 4K. The DLSS update was already announced in June, but it wasn’t until last week that we got a confirmation on the release date. Red Dead Redemption 2 will also be getting DLSS 2.2.10 which is the latest version available at the moment.
With DLSS, Nvidia is able to increase graphics performance using dedicated Tensor Core AI processors. This technology is already present in other games such as Doom Eternal and Rainbow Six: Siege, and it’s gradually making its way to more titles.
With DLSS turned on, any RTX card should be able to run Red Dead Redemption 2 on max settings at 1080p and 60+ FPS. Those with an RTX 3060 Ti and 3070 will be able to enjoy max settings gameplay at over 60 FPS on resolutions of 1440p and 4K, respectively. Naturally, users with a more powerful card will see increased framerates. With the 3080 Ti, framerates peaked at around 85 FPS.
