I mean, I suck at telling time so maybe 10 minutes is exaggerated - it seems overly long though. Like, I can go take a comfortable dump with my phone, come back and it'll still be churning.

The issues that I would suspect could lead to something like this would probably also lead to poor performance in the game itself though; are you seeing that?
Not really. Like I said, sometimes there's some hidden loading/swapping that my comp can't *quite* do seamlessly and the games will chug for a few seconds but that's about it. RDR2 is the first game where it happens frequently enough to be noticeable and annoying ; but from what I understand it's a very badly optimized port (also a very demanding game in general).
