My God, what a story it has and what a twist in the end. This game made me feel every minute of it. I love how Rockstar made this game. GTA V had an awesome story, but RDR2 is a different masterpiece. Different by it's gameplay and graphics, but sure one of the best games I've ever played.

perhaps tweaked medium to high settings with a few settings set to high would get you 60 fps but it wont be consistent i tell you that much fps defo takes a plunge to the mid 40's-50's in certain areas of the game .. i'd recommend the optimized settings that digital foundry has provided it'll make your game play better

Considering you are using a laptop version of the GTX 970, I will say that 60 fps on high settings is really impossible. You could reach somewhere around 60 fps with a mix of low, medium and only some settings turned up to high. Definitely playable on high settings, but 60 fps in no case... Good luck :/

When I got this card, I specifically had Red Dead Redemption 2 and Cyberpunk 2077 in mind. I hope this card can handle them smoothly.

With a tweaked mixture of high-ultra settings (texture quality def on ultra), msaa off, you should be able to get 60fps at that resolution
That's how I run it.

Optimization is pretty bad, maybe they will make it better in the future, but as of now your system will be struggling to achieve 60fps on low settings
