Cyberpunk 2077 System Requirements 2020

Last Updated:

Cyberpunk 2077 is easily one of the most anticipated games of 2020, having been in development for many years, all eyes are on CD Projekt Red to deliver the ultimate sci-fi action RPG. They’ve grown a lot since they started The Witcher series, and this hugely ambitious game is poised to be their next smash hit. It has already broken all kinds of records, having more than a million players on Steam within six hours of launch!

Graphics Card FPS Performance Results

Note: we received a copy of Cyberpunk 2077 through CD Projekt Red. We are using the latest Nvidia drivers (460.79) and have been benchmarking furiously with all the cards below. We will be compiling all our results and putting them here shortly, so be sure to visit back for all the data.

We have already seen that Cyberpunk takes advantage of the capabilities of high-end game rigs, with ray traced lighting effects and other advanced visual effects, but what level of hardware will constitute the baseline for running Cyberpunk 2077? CD Projekt Red has released the official system requirements, so you can check out how your rig measures up against the official game specifications now.

Or you can head over to our builds page if you’re looking for a guide to assembly yourself a new gaming PC. Now is a great time to think about upgrading, and Cyberpunk 2077 would be a fantastic first big game to push your new PC with.

In the future, we hope to have a tool up and running that will scan your PC automatically and determine what components it has under the hood. This should simplify the process considerably. As of writing, the utility is still in development, but rest assured we’ll make a song and dance of it once available.

Cyberpunk 2077 Game Details

Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming open-world RPG title from the developer behind the massively successful The Witcher series. 

Inspired by the tabletop role-playing game of the same name, Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the dystopian metropolis of Night City, California. This teeming megacity is broken down into six districts each with their own unique socio-economic and cultural flavor. Ruthless gangs, corporate behemoths, wealthy suburbanites, and hackers mingle in a melting point of technology, transhumanist ideals, violent crime, corruption, and blinding neon where pretty much anything goes.

The player takes on the role of a freelance mercenary of sorts named V, and through first-person gameplay, explores the horizontal and vertical limits of this towering city on the periphery of the American continent.

V can be customized based on a wealth of skills, attributes, and stats ranging from technologically-replicated body modifications, physical appearance, class (netrunner, techie, and solo) each with their own specialty, and weapon perks. 

CD Projekt Red has a reputation for creating the most immersive action-RPG world’s we’ve seen this generation and Cyberpunk 2077 looks to follow in that established tradition.

Alongside, Cyberpunk 2077 promises brutal melee combat, heated firefights, breakneck speed vehicle chases, a full day-night cycle, dynamic weather, and a world that reacts to the player’s actions and decisions – an RPG the likes of which we’ve never seen before, or at least, it appears that way.

How to get ray tracing in Cyberpunk 2077

If you want to maximize the visual effects in Cyberpunk 2077, with all the advanced graphical features, and high levels of image quality, we recommend that you pick up one of Nvidia’s latest RTX GPUs, such as the RTX 3080.

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend?

Depending on what you’re budget is, and what level of performance you’re looking at, these are the builds that we’d recommend for anyone planning to upgrade specifically for Cyberpunk:

Minimum (budget) 1080p

Check out our $700 build

Recommended (mid-range) 1440p

Check out our $1000 build

Overkill (High-end) 4K

Check out our $3000 build

If Cyberpunk 2077 doesn’t run like a dream with these specifications, even at 4K, then we are in for a rude awakening on release date this April.
