[FPS Benchmarks] Red Dead Redemption 2 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti (105W) and RTX 3060 (140W) – RTX 3070 Ti is 10% faster on average

When it comes to open-world games, Rockstar Games definitely know how to get the job done. After the super-successful Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the next gaming hit created by the same studio. The structure of the gameplay isn’t that different compared to GTA V – you’re on a huge map full of main and side passions and you have the freedom to decide what to do next – you just ride your horse, shoot at some random bandits, or you can decide which mission you’ll be your next one.

Visually, Red Dead Redemption 2 looks great and the world around you is very detailed especially if you greatly increase the visual quality. Unfortunately, on Max settings, the title is super heavy but the high preset combines a good amount of fine details and bumped FPS values. However, on Medium, you can enjoy even higher FPS even with not-so-powerful GPUs like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti [95W] that can show 64 FPS on Medium quality. For this article, we’re going to compare the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti (105W) and RTX 3060 (140W).
