      These specs also reaffirm that the game’s download speed will be a modest 70 GB.

      Download "speed"?

      So, when this game says 4k RT Ultra does that mean at 30fps? It'd be rad as hell if I could crank this game to its max and get 60fps, though...

      Details on FPS targets and whether that's using DLSS would be useful for sure. Either way I'm glad I'll be able to crank everything up yessssssssss

        I assume DLSS is implemented - the performance gains are just too good and it allows a lower recommended spec.
