Playing Red Dead Redemption 2 in native 4K on PC is not a piece of cake, even if you own the best graphics card and best CPU of the market. The game is very generous when it comes to graphics settings, but Rockstar included a bunch of presets to choose from. We gave the balanced preset a try to see if it would allow us to enjoy native 4K and a perfectly smooth framerate (some options are even set to low on that preset, among which lighting quality). In gameplay, it is pretty much the case, except for some close-ups during the muddy and rainy fight against the colossus outside the saloon, but cutscenes see a few frame drops. We only had time to try the preset in Valentine and in the wild so we're bound to encounter areas where framerate will suffer, but what is certain is that playing in native 4K offers much crisper background landscapes compared to playing with an 80% resolution scaling and most settings set on high and medium (and a couple on ultra).
@MrWhite: fair enough and more power to iy, but sayin' it looks better. end of. and ommiting everything... the images look worse overall, and that is in stills, a blatant lie. (6 Hours ago)
Not going to lie, the fact that it even looks that good on a mobile processor is amazing in of itself. Now, Sony, where is my PSVR version of that? (8 Hours ago)
I think they're saying it's better because it uses TAA to eliminate alot of the jaggies. (10 Hours ago)
the whole comparison for alien isolation is weird. the images clearly look blurry as hell on switch, and yet they're claiming it looks better? i feel like i'm missing something (12 Hours ago)
oh by the way, this is in the Alien Isolation debacle. (1 Day ago)
what is with DF, and it Switch... little powerhouse that could... propaganda that it gets to the point of trying to lie that its even better that stand alone 4TF machines? gross clickbait journalism. (1 Day ago)
