Question Good PC, but bad performance and low FPS?

Hi guys,

first post here, so be nice.

I revamped my whole pc, bought the new RTX2070 SUPER and RDR2. On ultra setting at 1080p I read I should get around 80-90 fps, according to this article: https://wccftech.com/red-dead-redemption-2-pc-performance-explored-finally/

However I only get around 19-20 fps. Now - the wierd thing is... when I lower the graphic settings to low -real low, I only see an improvement of 10 fps, hanging around at 33 fps. What could this be?

I also tried heavy overclocking, but only managed to improve by like 4 fps.

My specs are:

Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.4 GHz,
Core Speed 3500 MHz
Bus Speed 103.02 MHz

ASUSTeK Computer P8P67 Motherboard

RAM: 16GByte DDR3 DualRam at 824.2 MHz

GPU RTX 2070 Super GDDR6
Core: 1770 MHz
Memory 7000 MHz

PSU: 650W Gold

Also, my computer doesn't seem stressed at all, despite the low fps. The GPU temp never gets above 51°C.

Rdr2 is currently not well optimised. That will be fixed in the future patches.
Lowering resolution and/or lowering settings puts more stress to the CPU. If you get a very small gain or not at all, that suggests that you are CPU bound (CPU bottlenecked).

A CPU bottleneck is defined at having 99 to 100% CPU usage. Like I said, this is not the case here.
Actually you couldn't be more wrong. A CPU that has 1 core will bottleneck when at 90+ usage. A 2-core CPU in a game that uses only 1 core, is bottlenecking at 45-50% usage. A 4 core CPU in a game that uses 3 cores is bottlenecking at 70-75% usage and so on.
So, you need to know how many cores a specific game can utilise to see if you do bottleneck it with your CPU.
