[FPS Benchmarks] Red Dead Redemption 2 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (55W) – the 75W GPU is 24% faster on average

Red Dead Redemption 2 is another gaming hit developed by Rockstar Games. Just like the GTA series, here, you can roam one huge open world. However, the story is set in the Wild West era so you’ll ride a horse instead of driving cars.

Moreover, the single-player campaign is long and the game has a very interesting multiplayer mode. The graphics of the game look great but the title isn’t light when it comes to system requirements. In this article, we’re going to examine the performance of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (55W).
