Red Dead Redemption 2 is an absolutely gorgeous looking game.

Today is the day when Red Dead Redemption 2 officially breaks the shackles of console exclusivity and Rockstar made sure every bit of their Western masterpiece is up to PC standards. Nvidia says 60 FPS at 2560x1440 takes an RTX 2070 Super.

This is a bit of a strange one, because Rockstar's recommended specs talked about GTX 1060 cards being a great match. According to the in-game benchmark, it takes an RTX 2060 to run Red Dead Redemption 2 at 1080p, so they're not exactly a match made in heaven, are they?

Rockstar could've perhaps been more specific what they're recommending it for, because we doubt PC players will be throwing their hats in the air over 30 FPS in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Nvidia posted a handy slide that you should check out if you're thinking about sprucing up your rig for Red Dead Redemption 2. If that is the case, you're probably already lamenting the pile of cash that's about to leave your hands, but are unsure of which pile it is.

Nvidia's RTX 2070 Super has an MSRP of $499, and it now sounds like a decent, middle of the road solution to have Red Dead Redemption 2 running at high detail settings and 1440p. 

Rockstar recently launched the release trailer that shows off shiny visuals from Chapter 5, which is pretty far down the timeline. In other words, feast your eyes but don't expect to be chilling in the Caribbean immediately.
