Cyberpunk 2077 PC requirements minimum for all settings(1080p, 1440p, 4k )

Cyberpunk 2077 PC requirements and pricing in India

Official Cyberpunk 2077 system requirements have been updated to include premium recommendations in addition to ray tracing. As expected, operating at higher settings and resolutions requires a lot of hardware, at least in front of the graphics card. After relaunching to December 10 (from November 19), here are the kind of computers you need to run the game in all its glory.

Cyberpunk 2077 has been known for some time to support ray tracing and DLSS 2.x. If you want a full-HD experience, then it’s no wonder you need one of the best graphics cards from the highest GPU benchmark. This means you’ll need at least a GeForce RTX GPU. Cyberpunk also requires DirectX 12, but since DX12 ported, Windows 7 is supported.

If you have the money and luck, the latest GPU is enough. In the dream world, there is GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080, or GeForce RTX 3070 will suffice. The new AMD Radeon RX 6800 is not on the list, probably because it was just released on November 18. Unfortunately, with the latest information, the supply may not be able to keep up with demand until February 2021.

Cyberpunk 2077 PC requirements minimum

CD Projekt Red and Nvidia provide the slides above detailing all the recommended specifications. Interestingly, all references to AMD graphics cards have been omitted from the list. However, the two columns on the left side of the list haven’t changed much since Episode 3 of Night City Wire (starting around 20:30), and Nvidia has clearly added five columns. Let’s start with the minimum specifications:

  • Core i5-3570K or FX-8310
  • GTX 780 3GB (or RX 470 4GB)
  • 8GB RAM
  • 3GB VRAM
  • 70GB storage
  • Windows 7 or Windows 10 64-bit
  • Target: 1080p Low

So, your standard Cranker’s cyberdeck is hardly enough for you to start out as a network runner. It has a 2012, 2013 (Nvidia), or 2016 (AMD) GPU, a modest amount of memory, and a 64-bit version of Windows. Cyberpunk 2077 DirectX12 (DX12) required. Moved to Windows 7, but not moved to Windows 8 / 8.1.

What kind of experience does this group have? It says 1080p is low, but it doesn’t indicate whether it’s 60fps or 30fps. If you take the risk to guess, it’s closer to 30 than 60.

Cyberpunk 2077 PC requirements minimum for 1080p High

  • Core i7-4790 or Ryzen 3 3200G
  • GTX 1060 6GB, GTX 1660 Super (or R9 Fury)
  • 12GB RAM
  • 6GB VRAM
  • 70GB SSD storage
  • Windows 10 64-bit
  • Target: 1080p High

The recommended hardware for 1080p is still poor. GPUs are reasonably fast-According to GPU benchmarks and performance hierarchies, Nvidia’s 10606GB is about 30 percent faster than the GTX780. AMD’s R9 Fury X, on the other hand, is about 30 percent faster than the RX570 4GB, so the Vanilla R9 Fury is probably 35 percent faster than the smallest RX470. Note that the R9 Fury X is also 25 percent faster than the GTX 1060 6GB.

For newer GPUs, the GTX 1650 Super and RX 5500 XT both offer similar performance, but Nvidia also suggests the GTX 1660 Super, as 1650 has only 4GB of VRAM. This is a big performance boost, as the 1660 Super is 40% faster than the 1060 6GB.

In terms of CPU, things are a bit strange. The Core i7-4790 is similar to the i7-4770K processor, and both should be much faster than the Ryzen 3 3200G. The Ryzen 5 1400 was a smarter little CPU, so it looks like CDPR is pulling the model out of the hat. The Ryzen 3 3200G is limited to x8 PCIe bus links and features a quad-core / 4 thread CPU. So there’s nothing better than Core i7 Haswell or Devil’s Canyon in terms of game performance.

Cyberpunk 2077 PC requirements minimum for 1440p Ultra

  • Core i7-4790 or Ryzen 3 3200G
  • RTX 2060 (or RX 5600 XT)
  • 12GB RAM
  • 6GB VRAM
  • 70GB SSD storage
  • Windows 10 64-bit
  • Target: 1440p Ultra

Going to the 1440p Ultra HD recommendations, the only real change is the GPU division. CD Projekt Red (or Nvidia) recommends using the RTX 2060 as it has not yet enabled ray tracing. The presence or absence of DLSS is not clear, but if recommended, the RX 5600 XT should be relatively close to the RTX 2060. There is no DLSS.

Cyberpunk 2077 PC requirements minimum for 4K Ultra

  • Core i7-4790 or Ryzen 3 3200G
  • RTX 2080 Super, RTX 3070 (or RX 6800)
  • 16GB RAM
  • 8GB VRAM
  • 70GB SSD storage
  • Windows 10 64-bit
  • Target: 4K Ultra

4K Ultra continues to push the GPU ladder higher, moving to recommendations for 16GB of system RAM and 8GB of VRAM. RTX 2080 Super and RTX 3070 are recommended here, does this use DLSS? I’m confused. AMD’s RX6800 should do well, but we need to test it next month to see how it actually stacks up.
