Rockstar's western Red Dead Redemption 2 will be getting Nvidia DLSS 2.0 support with the next game update, which is scheduled for Tuesday, July 13, 2021.
Red Dead Redemption 2 can be one super demanding game once you push the sliders in the graphics settings to the absolute max. Even some of the most recent GPUs can struggle to deliver a smooth 60 FPS experience on higher frame rates but luckily, Nvidia has a fancy super sampling tech called DLSS, that can double the frame rate at a cost of a small visual downgrade in some games.
Red Dead Redemption 2 still does not have support for DLSS but that is about to change next week, when Rockstar Games are officially dropping a new update for Red Dead Online called Blood Money. The update is set to introduce a wide variety of new sutt and on top of that Nvidia DLSS 2.0 support.
This has been confirmed by the publisher in the Red Dead Online Blood Money update announcement post.
"As part of the July 13th update, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Red Dead Online on PC will offer NVIDIA DLSS support to all Windows users with eligible NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards. The newly supported feature boosts frame rates and generates beautiful sharp images," it's written on the blog.
At the moment, we do not know the performance boost that Red Dead Redemption 2 will get from DLSS but it's safe to expect a nice little improvement which will hopefully help those with slower cards to get acceptable performance on high settings.
