Also add what you already tried so far.

Tried clearing cache, tried reinstalling RedM and Red Dead, tried updating graphics drivers, tried playing in windowed mode, tried going into my graphics settings and doing some stuff

The Issue:

Basically on regular Red Dead 2 I get 50 FPS. On RedM I barely get 15 FPS. Exact same settings. So I really have no idea what could be causing it.

Configure your laptop GPU drivers to use the NVIDIA GPU for the RedM-related executables.

Do you have a tutorial on how to do that? I’m not experienced on stuff like that. I have went into graphics settings and set RedM to use my high performance graphics card which is my 1050 if that’s what you mean?
