If you’re one of several gamers looking forward to playing CD Projekt Red’s (CDPR) upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 on the PC, you’ve probably been wondering if your current rig is capable of running the game without a hitch. Well, you don’t have to ponder any longer, as CDPR recently listed the game’s hardware requirements.
The PC hardware requirements were officially announced during the third episode of the studio’s Night City Wire. In addition to the system requirements, the latest episode also gives fans of the game another look at of Night City, as well as an introduction of the many gangs that exist in-game.
Getting back on point, the minimum system requirements to run Cyberpunk 2077 is either an Intel Core i5-3570K or AMD FX-8310 CPU, 8GB RAM, and either an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 or AMD Radeon RX 470. You’ll also need 70GB of space on an HDD, although CDPR is recommending that you run the game off an SSD.
If you expect to see a modicum of graphic details in-game, the recommended hardware requirements call for an Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G, 12GB RAM, either a GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon R9 Fury, and 70GB of space via an SSD. Of course, if you’re really looking to ratchet it up with ray-tracing, you’re obviously going to need one of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 20 Series or 30 Series graphics card in order to take full advantage of the feature.
Cyberpunk 2077 will be launching for PC on 19 November, barring any further delays from the studios. The game will also be available on Google Stadia, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
