If you’re still having performance troubles with Red Dead Redemption 2’s PC port and your rig’s got Nvidia hardware inside it, Rockstar has some good news and bad news. The good news is that Rockstar is working with the manufacturer to resolve Nvidia-specific issues. The bad news is that you’ll need to wait a bit for a fix.
While some of the many launch day issues with Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC have been fixed with subsequent patches, Rockstar acknowledges that certain game stuttering issues appear to be “related to specific combinations of Nvidia graphics drivers, Nvidia GPU cards and certain CPU’s.”
Though another update aimed at fixing some of the stuttering problems and other issues is going live today, Rockstar warns that it could take “up to a few days” for the Red Dead PC team and Nvidia to finish and test an update that “completely solves” the stuttering. “We sincerely apologize for this temporary inconvenience and will update you as soon as we have more information to share,” reads Rockstar’s statement on Twitter.
Rockstar will also give PC players who boot up Red Dead Redemption 2 from now through the holiday season a “care package” of items for use in Red Dead Online, featuring the Prieto Poncho and assorted provisions and ammo.
That’s at least a spot of good news for all PC players—whether afflicted by stuttering, struggling with other issues, or having a grand old time racking up headshots with mouse aim, everyone who’s playing Red Dead Redemption 2 now is getting a little something for their troubles.
