Extremely anticipated: Cyberpunk 2077 is just some weeks away, and although we all know fairly a bit in regards to the recreation now, many followers have been clamoring for extra detailed hardware requirements — they’ve wished spec solutions that concentrate on completely different resolutions, and extra importantly, completely different ray-tracing high quality ranges. Fortuitously, due to CD Projekt Pink itself and the parents over at Nvidia, now we have all of these particulars and extra at present.

We’ll begin with the updated, non-RT system requirements first. As a fast aspect be aware, although, the minimal and really helpful settings have not modified from the final time CDPR gave us hardware requirements, so there is not any have to panic you probably have a lower-end rig. A GTX 780 and an i5-3570Ok will nonetheless web you a playable expertise on Low settings.

Since we have already reported on these earlier than, we cannot re-tread that floor right here. Nonetheless, CDPR has included new “High” and “Ultra” non-RT suggestions, that are properly value itemizing.

Let’s start with the Excessive hardware solutions, that are as follows (every little thing above Minimal recommends 70GB of SSD area):

Goal Decision: 1440p

Graphics Settings: Extremely

OS: Home windows 10 64-bit

CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G

RAM: 12GB

GPU: RTX 2060 or Radeon RX 5700 XT

We’re unsure what framerate this hardware-settings combo is aiming for, however to be secure, we’re assuming every little thing above Minimal will lead to 60 FPS gameplay more often than not.

Anyway, subsequent up, now we have the Extremely hardware suggestions:

Goal Decision: 2160p/4K

Graphics Settings: Extremely

OS: Home windows 10 64-bit

CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3600G

RAM: 16GB

GPU: RTX 2080 Tremendous or RTX 3070 or Radeon RX 6800 XT.

Now, we transfer on to Cyberpunk 2077’s ray tracing system requirements. Notably, all the spec particulars we’re about to checklist assume you are working DLSS — with out the AI upscaling tech enabled, we assume your framerate will take a major dive, particularly at 4K with RT on Extremely.

Listed here are the minimal requirements for RTX in Cyberpunk 2077:

Goal Decision: 1080p

RTX Settings: RT Medium

OS: Home windows 10 64-bit

CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G

RAM: 16GB

GPU: RTX 2060

No actual surprises right here. 16GB of RAM is to be anticipated, and AMD’s GPUs will probably be reduce from right here on out on account of their apparent lack of RTX assist. Transferring on to RT Excessive solutions:

Goal Decision: 1440p

RTX Settings: RT Extremely

OS: Home windows 10 64-bit

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600

RAM: 16GB

GPU: RTX 3070

The system requirements are rapidly ramping up right here, and notably, the 2080 Ti is not listed anyplace, not at the same time as an alternative choice to the 3070. That claims so much about Ampere’s superior RT rendering efficiency, I suppose, however it’s a disgrace for people like myself who bought Nvidia’s last-gen flagship.

Lastly, now we have CDPR’s RT Extremely suggestions:

Goal Decision: 4K

RTX Settings: RT Extremely

OS: Home windows 10 64-bit

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600

RAM: 16GB

GPU: RTX 3080

And there now we have it — all of Cyberpunk 2077’s newly-updated official system requirements listed on your comfort. One factor you will discover all through these requirements is how low the CPU requirements are, relative to different modern-themed open world video games.

For a recreation set in an incredibly-dense metropolis with doubtlessly tons of of NPCs strolling round, I am unable to assist however be a bit stunned, particularly given Watch Canines: Legion’s atrocious CPU optimization. Nonetheless, I am not one to look a present horse within the mouth, and I sincerely hope Cyberpunk 2077’s real-world efficiency matches up with its technical requirements.

Fortuitously, we cannot have to attend lengthy to seek out out. Cyberpunk 2077 releases on December 10, and our personal Steven Walton and Tim Schiesser will probably be placing the sport by means of its paces in their very own benchmarks, so keep tuned for that.
