Red Dead Redemption 2 PC version receives DLSS update for better performance

Nvidia and Rockstar Games are releasing an update for the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 that makes DLSS now possible. According to Nvidia, DLSS provides up to a 45 percent higher frame rate. The update is available immediately.

With DLSS enabled for Red Dead Redemption 2, PC gamers with an RTX video card should be able to play at the highest possible graphics settings with 1080p resolution. In that case, Nvidia promises at least 60fps. PCs with a GeForce RTX 3070 or better should be able to handle at least 60fps in 4k resolution with the graphics settings at maximum.

DLSS stands for deep learning super sampling and is a technology in which artificial intelligence is applied to improve the performance of a game. By means of special Tensor cores in RTX video cards, textures of games with DLSS support are rendered in a lower resolution, after which they are scaled up and details are completed. As a result, a game visually remains the same, while less computing power is needed to achieve the same graphic quality, or so the idea. Meanwhile, Nvidia provides DLSS support for more than 60 games, including Call of Duty: Warzone, Cyberpunk 2077 and No Man’s Sky.
