Gamers Nexus have uploaded a fascinating video about the Graphics Settings in Red Dead Redemption 2!

Steve goes through a variety of graphical settings and explains what they are and demonstrates them, I think this would be interesting for people to see!
It appears that performance isn't the main focus of this video, but what the settings are, and the visual differences of them.

Red Dead Redemption 2 has a lot of graphics settings that need a definition, incl: Parallax Occlusion Mapping, Volumetric Raymarch Resolution, and Screen Space Ambient Occlusion.

This content includes some Red Dead Redemption 2 PC graphics settings comparisons, with a heavy focus on technical explanation.
Watch our #RDR2 CPU benchmark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_ty-... and RDR2 GPU benchmark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yD3xd...

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC graphics get a deep-dive in this video.
Graphics options we explain include the below:
- What is unlocked volumetric raymarch resolution?
- Defining parallax occlusion mapping quality
