Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q Performance Review

We can see that when playing Red Dead Redemption 2 with a GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q will get a very strong 111 FPS. That base FPS is at 1080p and High visual settings.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to Red Dead Redemption 2 rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q will still get a solid 36 FPS.

While this GPU might not be aiming at 4K we can see that the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q is perfectly placed to deliver a very smooth 1440p, Ultra graphics setting gaming experience.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Max-Q card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Red Dead Redemption 2 at, because you can get 36 FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 61 frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 80 FPS at 1080p Ultra.
