Red Dead Redemption 2 PC (2019) – DX12 vs Vulkan Performance Test with R5 3600 / GTX 1070 OC

One of the things that i noticed when i got to finally play Red Dead Redemption2 on PC after a long time frustration of troubleshooting thanks to Rockstar’s shitty broken Launcher.

I noticed that the performance difference between the DX12 – Vulkan is kind of interesting. The Vulkan API settings feels sluggish the frametime being more inconsistent than the DX12 even when it shows better FPS average than DX12. And DX12 feels more smoother despite having lower FPS. This somehow made me wonder and decided to make a only short in game benchmark comparison between both.

And also yes, i know this game is poorly optimized as of yet. A GTX 1070 overclocked going under 50 FPS on this game at some areas at 1080p High setting. Not even Ultra settings is just really not usual even on newer other games that i play. Especially when it’s recommended GPU is a GTX 1060.

This game clearly needs more patch and optimization to make it run better than it’s current state. Also one of the main reason why i delayed my planned 1080p, 1440p, 4K Performance Test. So, don’t expect that certain video sooner

  1. This games optimization is pure trash. It's disgraceful that Rockstar even released the game in this state. They had a year and they still couldn't deliver a decent port that runs well. Filled with bugs, broken in many ways and poorly optimized. This is what we get for our money and Rockstar basically does nothing. In 2 weeks that they haven't said anything about a patch to fix the trash performance. Don't depend on the bench marking tool in this game. It's completely useless. I thought I would have decent performance as well till I got into the game.
