Red Dead Redemption 2 is another great title developed by Rockstar Games. The PC version was released at the end of 2019 and it’s still one of the good-looking PC games. The gameplay formula is not that different when compared to GTA V. You have one huge world to explore which is full of NPC’s, main and side missions, and you can ride horses. Yes, the game is set in 1889 so you can ride only horses, no cars here.
As we said, the game looks good but it’s definitely not a light title when it comes to system resources. So, for this article, we have prepared two fast NVIDIA Ampere GPUs – NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W).
