Make your game look Ultra without the FPS loss!
With the settings below, I think you will have a great experience playing Red Dead Redemption 2. These settings mimic the graphics settings on High/Ultra presets with minimal FPS loss, trading off some visual settings that are not worth the FPS loss while preserving similar visuals. From my experience, this should give you over 65% boost to your FPS compared to Ultra/High presets, as my PC with an old 4.1GHz i7 3770, 16GB RAM and GTX 1070 pretty much runs this at a constant 60 FPS with minimal dips during gameplay.
