    At this point you might as well wait a solid month before buying any new games. They always have issues and early adopters get screwed.

    So that's for people who claim artificial gimping in drivers and how some cards don't perform as expected... like many already said, and I claimed too, it needs optimisation.

    Read. Their. Official. Statement.

    No it isnt. The apology only covers Nvidia stuttering issues that are caused by certain combinations of drivers, GPUs and CPUs. It doesnt address Pascal lower performance in the game which the gimpers crowd claim is occurring. Not that I think it can be addressed since it seems more due to architectural changes that favor newer cards.

    Hmm,so nVidia drivers and their inadequate Dx12 implementation is the culprit.
    Weird.
    Hey nVidia,do not forget the beloved Pascal chip. :)

    Waiting for Steam release anyway. Hopefully by this time all kinks will be ironed out.

    there are still people thinking "apologies" like that are a good thing, that RS is working on it ? so naive...life is going to be world of disappointement for you
    they did absolutely nothing
    real life :
    RS stumbled upon GN video explaining what's the reason for the stuttering, makes a fake apology worded in a way making people think they worked on the issues (they didn't)

    btw as owner of a 1080ti when I see this I'm not buying, I don't play below 60fps, there are more interessant things in life than playing at 40fps, it's RS problem that they lose a sell with this, not mine

    This has sone great fixes but I wish they would adjust their packet loss parameters for Read Dead Online, its ridiculous how many times you get disconnected from the servers with that stupid "fault on Rockstars server" error that's been around for over a year.

    It completely ruins your online experience, half way through a mission...kicked, half way through dropping off 3* pelts...kicked. Its not the user its Rockstar, no other online game has this issue, well apart from GTAV Online.

    If you don't expect to do multiplayer, wait several months until the price goes down. By then, games are usually pretty stable.

    I never buy games on day 1. This time I did and am not disappointed. But then I haven't encountered any issues, so I suppose I'm among the lucky ones.

    Patch added tesselation toggle for tree bark. Not sure if that was previously just part of the other tesselation options.

    Performance also seemed to be lower for me initially, but perhaps the game had to rebuild shader cache or something, because after a while my performance was back to normal and I played a solid 5-6 hours with no issues and a solid 60fps (vsync on) regardless of what was happening (and I got to quite an intense part of the game at end of chapter 4 and chapter 5).

    Noteworthy - check your graphics settings after installing patch - they reset for me. Everything was on low.

    That sucks. But there are actually plenty of online games which have issues like this. But for me the game is all about the story, online I will probably try but if you're not playing story mode you're missing out BIG TIME.

    PS That error has been around for many years actually. Used to happen to me on GTAV all the time (and to everyone else reportedly).

    To be fair, I mean sure DX12 should work, but if you're not using Vulkan in this game you're doing it wrong (since it's smoother and nets better performance).

    Have you actually played the game? Optimisation is great. I'm surprised a game can actually look this good, have so much going on and still sit at a constant 60fps on high/ultra settings.

    Honestly thats what I do with 99% of games. Only 2 games I bought on release day was Rise of the Tomb Raider and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Honestly, was not disappointed and had a good experience from release day.
