Last month during Computex, Nvidia and Rockstar announced that Red Dead Redemption 2 would be getting support for DLSS on RTX graphics cards. No date was announced at the time, but as it turns out, the update will be arriving next week.
Today, Rockstar announced the next content update for Red Dead Online, known as ‘Blood Money’. The new missions will send players off to Saint Denis, where they’ll be picking up the dirty work for some of the city’s rich and powerful residents.
Aside from new content, this update will introduce DLSS to the PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2. This is a very demanding game on PC, but with an RTX graphics card, players will be able to gain back performance thanks to AI-assisted image scaling.
Nvidia has been teaming up with a lot of developers recently, bringing ray-tracing, DLSS and other features like Nvidia Reflex to a wide range of games. Last month, id Software’s Doom Eternal and Facepunch Studios’ Rust also implemented RTX features.

KitGuru Says: Given how demanding Red Dead Redemption 2 is at higher graphics settings, I’ll be very interested to see the DLSS performance gains for this. Are any of you currently using an RTX graphics card? Will you be jumping back into RDR2 to check out the DLSS update?
