Remedy Improves Performance for Lower GPUs in New Alan Wake 2 Update

This week, Remedy published their brand new Alan Wake 2 update ( for PCs, which lowers the minimum GPU requirements to GeForce GTX 1070 / Radeon RX 5600 XT, optimising rendering for GPUs that don't support mesh shaders. 

For those playing Alan Wake 2 on older gaming PCs or laptops, it should make a huge difference with much smoother performance.

If you have the game via Epic Games Store, the title should have automatically been updated, with it ready to play straight away. However, you can always check which version your game is running by going to your Library and tapping the three white dots. At the bottom of the options, it will show you the version currently installed. 

To get players geared up for the new update, Remedy worked with Digital Foundry to give them a sneak peek at what's to come. In their YouTube demonstration,  Alex Battaglia explores a range of different setups, looking at how the game performs on them before and after the upcoming patch. Their demo goes in-depth while still approaching those who perhaps are a little less familiar with their PC setups. You can watch their demo HERE!
