Cyberpunk 2077 is set to land on all platforms in another three weeks, provided that its studio, CD Projekt Red (CDPR), doesn’t blindside us with another unexpected delay. On a somewhat related note, the studio recently released an updated hardware recommendations sheet, for PC gamers intending to play the game on the PC.
The new specs sheets basically divides the requirement into two categories: playing Cyberpunk 2077 without ray-tracing on, and playing it with. If you’re not interested in seeing the game in all ray-traced, highly reflective, illuminated glory, the minimum requirements is actually very lenient. Specifically, the game will run just fine on an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780, along with either an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5 or AMD FX-8310.
But if you’re planning on running everything at the Ultra preset – sans the ray-tracing, of course – and at 4K resolution, CDPR says that you’ll need either an RTX 2070 Super or RX 3070, along with a beefier Haswell Core i7-4790 or Ryzen 5 3600.
As for those of you who want access to some of the game’s RTX-driven features, and RTX 2060 is the bare minimum you’ll need in order to get the ray-traced setting running at the medium preset. For those who wish to push ray-tracing all the way, the required GPUs are an RTX 3070 at 1440p or an RTX 3080 if you’ve got a 4K monitor.
Cyberpunk 2077 is slated for a 10 December launch, and it’s not an exaggeration to say that it is one of the most anticipated titles in current memory. The game was originally planned for an April launch earlier this year, but development and internal issues with both the game and its staff forced CDPR to push back its launch to three times: first to September, then November, and finally to its current date.
