Red Dead Redemption 2 – Best Optimized Settings [FPS BOOST]

Red Dead Redemption 2 Best Settings for FPS

Salutations Non Epic Game supporters! The game runs very well and visuals aren’t comprimised much if you set your graphic options to Xbox One X settings. In my experience they nearly doubled my performance from 40fps to 70fps on a i7 8700k 16GB RAM GTX 1070 at 1440p. These settings are as follows:

PC settings equivalent to Xbox One X:

  • Texture Quality: Ultra
  • Anisotropic Filtering: 4x
  • Lighting Quality: Medium
  • Global Illumination Quality: Medium/Low
  • Shadow Quality: High
  • Far Shadow Quality: Low (XB1X is Lower than Low)
  • SSAO: Medium
  • Reflection Quality: Low (XB1X is Lower than Low)

    Outstanding settings optimization. I’ve matched these settings as close as possible and the game runs exactly as described in the introduction to this post. I was running anywhere from 55-65 FPS in the settings I was using prior to matching the settings from this post and now I’m getting around 70+ fps with the expected random dips in fps. Thank you for taking the time to post this review. My rig: I7-9700K, 32GB RAM, GTX 1080 TI, at 1440p.

    Thank you so much for this guide. My frame rate has been increased by a solid 20 fps on average in game. And the benchmark has been increased by 13 fps having had it on “Balanced” before.
    Before It could only come up to about 30 fps when out in the snow, and now it’s a solid 50, at least.

    Thank you very much. I ran the game for the first time with the Rockstar optimization, and when the game ran. I had about 20 to 30fps
    But when I used your optimized settings, I was able to easily run the game at 35 to 50 fps.

    Praised be!

    I’ve recently stepped into the world of Redemption on PC and I quite like it. Figuring the graphics was a torture (I started fiddling with each setting to see what it does) and I can say that this guide is definitely worthwhile and brings in a playable game (tested and confirmed on RTX 2060)

    Cheers to you Sir!

    Tried Nvidia’s GeForce Experience settings and wasn’t so thrilled with the quality to achieve near 60 FPS for 1440p.

    Tried the game’s built in settings at MEDIUM and that didn’t fare well either

    Your settings have given me the best results so far till date. Near 60 FPS at 1440p on a GTX1070 with an Intel i7 7700 with great quality visuals. Thank you!

    I did all of these settings but my fps is still between 20-30. I updated everything. What could be the problem?

      Your problem is an subpar GPU. You cant expect to match 1080 ti performance with these settings even when playing 1080p…
