We tested the public Rockstar Launcher release version of Red Dead Redemption 2, including the game update that was pushed out on Nov 5th in the evening (not a press pre-release). We also installed the latest drivers from AMD and NVIDIA, which both have game-ready support for the game.
Graphics Memory Usage
Using a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which has 11 GB of VRAM, we measured the game's memory usage at the highest setting.
VRAM requirements are quite modest for today's hardware. Only at 1080p with the highest settings are cards with 3 GB, like the GTX 1060 3 GB, possibly challenged a bit.
