Red Dead Redemption 2 PC’s DLSS update is out, with a ‘45% 4K performance boost’
Plus Blood Money expansion added for Online
Red Dead Redemption 2’s Nvidia DLSS update is now available, adding a significant performance boost for owners of RTX video cards.
DLSS is a feature exclusive to Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards and works by using AI to upscale the resolution of PC games, effectively allowing players to achieve higher graphical settings and better frame rates from their systems.
DLSS can now be enabled in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online’s Settings menu and accelerates performance by up to 45% at 4K, according to Nvidia.
At 2560×1440, GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and above users can expect frame rates above 60 FPS, according to the manufacturer. At 3840×2160, players with a GeForce RTX 3070 or faster can expect 60 FPS+ max setting gameplay, it claims.
According to a Digital Foundry analysis, DLSS 2.0 at any normal screen distance “looks almost as good as the real thing.”
The update coincides with the release of Red Dead Online’s latest update, Blood Money.
According to Rockstar, Blood Money adds three multi-part Crime Contracts — The Railroad Contract, The Jeb Phelps Contract, and The Bluewater Contract — each with their own story and rewards.
Red Dead Redemption 2 was recently added as part of Sony’s PlayStation Now library until November. Red Dead Online is also available as part of Xbox Game Pass on cloud and console.
