Can I run Red Dead Redemption 2?

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the new action-adventure-packed attraction from Rockstar Games. They just recently made this Red Dead Redemption prequel available last November 5, 2019 for Microsoft Windows. And I know what you guys have been wondering – can you run it? First, this game will eat up a substantial amount of drive space as the game file size is around 150 GB. A GPU of Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB or AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB is a must and your unit’s CPU should not be older than Intel® Core™ i5-2500K or AMD FX-6300. A RAM that is lower than 8 GB will just put you in utter disappointment.

A high-end gaming PC will justify Red Dead Redemption 2‘s visual intensity. It’s a bit of a stretch to gain killer frame rates. The recommended GPU should be Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon RX 480 4 GB. On top of that, a higher CPU of Intel® Core™ i7-4770K or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X is needed with 12 GB RAM.
