Any updated optimization guide for pc?

Just bought rdr 2 on pc and I'm struggling to hit 60 fps. I had read the reviews about bad pc optimization  but thought that would have been fixed by now. Most of the resources on the internet are pretty outdated by now so I was wondering if any of y'all would kindly help me find some reliable resources.  thane property rates

My specs : flats in dadar 

I5 7600k

Gtx 1060

16gb ram

 basically these settings would be ideal, except anistropic filtering - it says x4 there, u should put it on x16

There are so many things that can affect FPS that one size will not fit all when it comes to PC's. There are processes and other background things running on the PC that can affect game performance, many of which can be turned off since they are Microsoft clutter. All you can do is mess with the settings to get what works best for you.

 

As an example, I've seen people talk about how they have everything set to ultra but the game still doesn't look good or perform well. I assume they are using a resolution of 1080. When I set mine to 1080 the game doesn't look much better than the PS version even with everything on ultra when using full screen. When I change most settings to low, with texture being the only thing set to ultra, and use a resolution of 2160, everything is really crisp and colors are really vibrant, almost lifelike, and I don't have any FPS issues. But that is MY PC. Someone else's may not work as well as mine with everything set exactly the same as mine.

I'm surprised Nvidia never released a tweak guide for the game. Do they still do those? I always appreciated how in-depth they were with performance impact, and comparisons between each setting.

Depends on your card but for any modern mid rage card I believe this should suffice. First max everything then follow only this. If you still need more boost then keep reading the guide.

MSAA, or Multisample Anti-Aliasing, is a well known killer of framerates. It essentially renders the frames at a higher resolution before downsampling them; it is the greatest killers of frames in Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC, and should be avoided if you are not rocking beefy hardware, like an RTX 2070 Super or higher (and even then, you’ll need to sacrifice other settings to hit 60 frames with it). You’re better off using TAA or FXAA to remove jaggies, and with AMD’s Radeon Image Sharpening or Nvidia’s new Image Sharpening you can overcome the softer look the game gains under these options, albeit with some shimmering.

 

Reflections, for reasons well beyond me and others, are equally murderous. Putting this setting to Ultra will cripple performance, and honestly, the much more manageable Medium option doesn’t look all that different. Noticeable when you stop and take notes, sure, but certainly not in motion. Keep reflections at Medium or High (if you have the hardware for it), figuring out which of the two works best for you. With my configuration, I personally keep them at Medium, allowing me more room to push other settings in the game to Ultra.


Water Physics will drown your framerate at the highest settings. Even a single pip down on the slider from max results in a dramatic increase in frames (10+ from my experience), though setting this to the middle of the slider seems to net the best performance-to-quality results. The other water settings are not nearly as brutal as this one, so it’s best to tweak these independently in the Advanced settings.

 

Finally, we have Near Volumetric Resolution. It’s no secret that volumetric lighting and effects devour frames at higher settings, with the pattern holding true across multiple games. In Red Dead Redemption 2 for PC, however, there are three volumetric options in the Advanced settings you can fiddle with, and of them Near Volumetric Resolution goes well above and beyond the other two when it comes to its frame-chomping power. Turn this setting down to high or medium to see improved performance without affecting how the game looks too dramatically.
