Rockstar Games has released a new update for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, bringing a host of fixes for performance. On top of fixing an issue that would cause stalls on four core and six core processors, it also improved performance and stability on GPUs with 4 GB VRAM or less with Vulkan. You can also expect the game to launch in the set resolution when Windowed mode is used.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has had a somewhat rough launch on PC. While some users have reported little to no issues, others have faced problems like the Rockstar Games Launcher crashing. Rockstar Games acknowledged the issues that players were facing and promised more fixes.

In the meantime, some compensation will be offered to Red Dead Online players. They’ll receive a free Prieto Poncho along with ammo and provisions. Whether this will be enough to tide things over remains to be seen. Check out the full list of fixes and changes for the most recent update here. Highlights for the same can be viewed below.

Graphics & Performance Fixes

  • Added an additional launch argument (-cpuLoadRebalancing) to rebalance workload on the CPU cores and avoid hitting an edge-case in certain NVIDIA graphics card drivers that causes significant stalls on 4-core and 6-core CPUs
  • Added improvements for performance and stability on graphics cards with 4GB of VRAM or less when using Vulkan
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in audio stuttering and sound drops on some CPUs when using Vulkan
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in graphics problems when using Fullscreen mode on systems with multiple displays
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in the game becoming stuck in Windowed Borderless mode instead of Fullscreen mode if the game lost focus or certain graphics settings were changed under DirectX 12
  • Fixed issues that resulted in the incorrect detection of devices and problems switching between SDR and HDR modes. Players who previously encountered these issues should enable HDR through the Windows Display Settings prior to launching the game
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in the game launching in a window larger than the maximum resolution of the attached display when using Windowed display mode
  • Improved the auto-detection of system hardware so that the recommended default graphics settings will provide higher performance
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in the game setting a default graphics preset that was unsupported by the amount of available VRAM on some graphics cards, preventing the game from launching
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in VRAM usage estimation for pending settings changes to be slightly different to the actual usage once the settings were applied
  • Added a separate option to enable tessellation on tree models within the Graphics settings menu
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in reduced performance when switching between different graphics settings presets without restarting the system
  • Fixed an issue that affected the brightness of Photo Mode images that were captured in HDR after editing them using the Social Club menu
  • Fixed issues with some full-screen effects and Photo Mode filters when using a display aspect ratio other than 16:9
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in graphics artifacts in mirror reflections when using Multisample Anti-Aliasing (MSAA)
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in graphics artifacts on the Pause Menu Map when using Multisample Anti-Aliasing (MSAA )
  • Fixed issues with rendering and lighting that occurred with some waterfalls
  • Fixed issues with rendering that occurred with a Story Mode character
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in flickering graphics artifacts on some systems using multiple graphics cards
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in graphical corruption during the theater shows in Saint Denis
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in graphics artifacts to appear when rendering some light reflections
  • Fixed an issue that affected the rendering of the Pause Menu background after changing the display resolution
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in reduced world detail at long distance when using items that allow zooming, such as scopes and binoculars
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in rendering issues with shadows on some parts of the terrain
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in graphics artifacts that could occur with some hair/fur rendering when using Multisample Anti-Aliasing (MSAA)
  • Improved the performance rendering some in-game particle effects
  • Improved the performance rendering of trails when in snowy areas of the game
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in the partial rendering of the Pause Menu while some graphics settings were active
