    Hmm well it's hard to know if it affects my FPS as I don't know what FPS I might get if the CPU was doing more of the work. My monitor is limited to 1080p @60fps and with a mix of high/ultra I'm getting around 50-60fps right now which seems ok but all Ultra at 60fps would be nicer!

    I'll try disabling SMT thanks :)

    I have an AMD Radeon 5700 RX and whilst it's not the fastest GPU in the world there's no way it's bottlenecking my system so much that my CPU is averaging 10% usage. I've never seen that behaviour in other games. But thanks for the suggestion...

    Whilst I understand that for those who can't the game to work it's an utter crap experience.


    But people all over Reddit calling it the worst launch or some variation.

    For a lot of people the game unlocked and launched just fine, I've got 3 machine here with varying setups. All Intel and Nvidia I should mention, and it works fine been playing together the whole time.


    A person I know wants to make a video for his yt channel about how red dead is totally broken when for him it works fine, capitalising on the drama etc.

    Trying to explain to him that the Reddit is a small sample of users, no one's going on there to scream about how well it's working for them.

    Eh I can see your objection, but realistically a lot of people paid money for a product that they can't even launch. If that isn't the worst service provided, I don't know what is, so they have every right to be upset and call it the worst launch ever. I also don't see the reason to excuse the mistakes of multi billion dollar company, they had a year to port the game to PC and fix the problems, but they very obviously didn't do it.

    Is your gpu at 97+ % load? If yes, then it doesn't really matter what your cpu load is...

    Yes it's at 99% most of the time.

    Then you are gpu bottlenecked, and your cpu load % is absolutely irrelevant...

    @Party Poison Every bad launch is a mix of ppl who can run the game well and other who can't. In case or RDR2 there is a lot of ppl who can't even run the game on some motherboards or even specific BIOS versions! I call this a major f-up from R*. GN video confirmed ugly stuttering even on some Intel systems making the game almost unplayable. Then there are crashes or unability to even launch the game with AV software installed, some visual bugs especially with DX12, bad GPU performance especially on Pascal etc... The fact that you or your friends can run the game means nothing.

    How can a 5700RX be a bottleneck at 1080p when people with much more inferior graphics cards are running the game to a similar or better extent?

    It's obviously a synthetic/software bottleneck hence me wondering (and thus asking) if anyone knows something I can try to fix/improve it.

    That's exactly my point.

    The same can be said for those who the game doesn't work for, just because it works fine for most doesn't mean that it works for everyone in exactly the same way that for those that can't get it to work doesn't mean that the game is totally broken.


    It's subjective to the singular experience, I could find 50 people in a friend's list who all have no issues, doesn't mean it's fine.

    Find a thread with 50 people who can't get it to run, it's as useless as the 50 who can.

    I'm trying to say that whether the launch is good or bad is defined be the ratio between good vs bad user experiences. And in case of RDR2 I'd say the ratio is unusually bad. Considering all the technical reviews and metacritics at least.

    Have you tried Nv experience edge enhancement uspcaling filter? It makes upscaled picture sharp and now you can also toggle it in Nv control panel.

    So moving to vulkan stopped my random CTD that was happening. My min FPS is higher too. Also even though I had TAA Sharpening set to max I still used the nvidia sharpening filter. What a difference! I dialed it down to around 25 percent and my image looks so crisp now with great FPS in the 60-80 range.

    That forum must be overloaded, I can't get in heh.

    But I'm on 1.0.0.3 ABBA and had no issues. But I have seen others say they had to use 0.2 or 0.4 to make it work. Might be a chipset issue.
    There's so many variables on PC it can be hard to pin down what exactly the problem is.

    I have tried it just yesterday for myself and I'm surprised how drastic difference it makes so I recommend checking it out. Upscaled picture looks really sharp thanks to it, but some games dont work with nv experience, so you need to toggle image sharpening in Nv control panel.
