Cyberpunk 2077 appears to be like like a truly next-gen game from every part we’ve seen, however you gained’t want a futuristic rig to run it. CD Projekt Red unveiled the system necessities for the hotly anticipated sport on Friday, they usually’re surprisingly forgiving. You’ll want extra highly effective gear to unlock the actual eye sweet, although.
On the processor entrance, your wants are minimal: an historical Intel Core i5-3570Okay or AMD FX-8310 CPU. That’s probably as a result of Cyberpunk 2077 can also be touchdown on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, which rock historical, atrocious AMD Jaguar cores. You’ll want solely a 3GB GeForce GTX 780 or Radeon RX 470 graphics card, too, so this could run on most fashionable gaming PCs, even modest ones. The 8GB RAM and 70GB storage necessities are in all probability extra onerous than the CPU and GPU calls for.
Those are simply the minimal necessities, however the Recommended specs aren’t crushing both. CD Projeckt recommends a Core i7-4790 or humble AMD Ryzen 3 3200G, paired with both a GTX 1060 or a Radeon R9 Fury. You’ll ideally need 12GB of reminiscence for Cyberpunk 2077, and CD Projekt strongly recommends an SSD, although the 70GB storage requirement may also apply to conventional laborious drives. The huge, open world will in all probability really feel awfully pokey on an HDD, although.
Cyberpunk 2077 is constructed on DirectX 12, and also you’ll want Windows 10 to run it. Sorry, Windows 7 diehards.
But a few of these DirectX 12 tips are the rationale you could contemplate upgrading your graphics card for Cyberpunk 2077 when it launches on November 19. Cyberpunk 2077 goes all-in on ray tracing and Nvidia’s improbable speed-boosting DLSS 2.zero know-how. You’ll want a GeForce RTX graphics card to tour Night City with these stunning, cutting-edge lighting applied sciences enabled, be it an older RTX 20-series GPU (if you can find one heavily discounted) or one of many just-launched RTX 30-series choices (if yow will discover one on the market).
The $700 GeForce RTX 3080 is staggeringly powerful, whereas the $500 GeForce RTX 3070 launches October 15, promising RTX 2080 Ti-toppling efficiency at nicely beneath half the RTX 2080 Ti’s $1,200 asking worth.
AMD’s next-gen “Big Navi” Radeon RX 6000 graphics playing cards may even assist ray tracing in a roundabout way, although it stays to be seen how (and the way successfully). They gained’t play good with Nvidia’s proprietary DLSS know-how, nevertheless. Look for AMD to unveil Radeon RX 6000 on October 28, mere weeks earlier than Cyberpunk 2077 itself hits the road.
