Not that I would know since the game isn't out, but they could also just be recommending their RTX line as it's more expensive.

Though I suppose the performance gap between the 2060 and the 1660ti is big enough to mean it probably won't hit 60fps at 1080p. Which is sad. The recommendations here showcase how badly optimized the game is more than having next-gen graphical features imo.

The combination of higher settings and the console versions aiming for 30FPS can do a lot to the game.

Even if you consider a Xbox One X to be equivalent to a GTX 1070, you still need 2x that for 4K 60. Add on higher settings and features and it is easy to see why an RTX 2080 Ti can't do Ultra.

It shouldn't be linear though. They should be putting in the work to better optimize and take advantage of newer architectures. 4k60 sure is fine for needing higher tier cards. Been that way for years, but for lower resolutions, you shouldn't need to spend $350 to hit 1080p60. A few years ago a $200 and lower card would be able to do this.

They are a multi-billion-dollar company, there's really no excuse especially considering they delayed the PC version over a year and they most definitely started this during the console development as well.

I'm expecting Medium settings to look pretty good. We will see when the game is out. I expect RDR2 to be like Control and look pretty great at low and better at higher settings.

The recent PC demos for the press were 4K med/high and that got a great reception.

It's been ages since I've seen any truly discernible visual difference between high and ultra settings. A game like RDR2 will undoubtedly look great even at medium/high.
