Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Trailer in 4K sexiness

Rockstar just dropped the new Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer for PC, and let me just say this: It may just be the best looking game ever.

And I know what you’re probably thinking, “There’s all of these other games out, what about this game or that game?” And to that, I say, “Silence.”

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC Specs

How good is your current PC? Me, I’m rocking an Intel i7 7700k with a GTX-1080 and a paltry 16GB of RAM. Will this be enough? For me, since I use a 1080p monitor, probably. But if you’re looking to get the best performance or just want to check out how your system compares to the recommended specs, here’s what I’ve found on Rockstar’s official support site.

Minimum Specifications:

  • OS:  Windows 7 – Service Pack 1 (6.1.7601)
  • Processor:  Intel® Core™ i5-2500K / AMD FX-6300
  • Memory:  8GB
  • Graphics Card:  Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB / AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB
  • HDD Space:  150GB
  • Sound Card:  DirectX compatible

Recommended Specifications:

  • OS:  Windows 10 – April 2018 Update (v1803)
  • Processor:  Intel® Core™ i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
  • Memory:  12GB
  • Graphics Card:  Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB / AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB
  • HDD Space:  150GB

Will your PC get the best possible performance?

The required specs are pretty forgiving, all things considered. There’s a large majority of people who will be able to play this, even if it’s on lower quality settings. I remember when I first got my computer, I couldn’t really comprehend everything that was needed. RAM, a graphics card, is memory the same as storage?
