but its in recommended.
plus it doesn't even required 16 GB RAM. only 12 GB.
Learn to read. The requirements released a few days ago were by R* themselves and had Minimum and Recommended. Then two days ago, NVIDIA released their own recommendations to play at High/1080p/60fps, High/1440p/60fps and High-Medium/4K/60fps. NVIDIA never listed minimum requirements so your whole "hur hur, 2060 is now the minimum requirement" is complete bullshit because 1080p/High/60fps is not fucking Minimum, it's at the very least on par with Recommended if not higher because Recommended is typically 1080p/30fps/Medium-High.
further proven my point. Original plan was not to unoptimize game. the moment Nvidia step up and reveal thier own requirements is the moment i see theres something fishy here.
Nvidia donot want huge AAA game to perform on lower GPUs. otherwise thier overpriced GPU wont sell.
its all a part of plan. and Nvidia played the game.
You do realize that Nvidia makes more money off lower and mid range GPUs than the high end right? Most people can not afford the high end GPUs. So, it doesn't make sense to sabotage the lesser GPUs that the majority are buying. Keep spinning those conspiracy theories in your head though. LOL
