Cyberpunk 2077 GPU Specs

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I've been planning on getting rid of my Hardline water loop so that I could take my PC to college with me next year and have been doing research on things I'm going to be switching. I currently have an EVGA 1080 ti FTW3 with a ripped wire on the air cooler (which happened while installing the water block). I was thinking about switching to an RTX 2080 ti (or some other variant) or just keeping the 1080 ti and adding an aftermarket cooler. I really want to be able to play Cyberpunk 2077 on release at 1440p and 144Hz and thought the 1080 ti would be fine but when I searched up cyberpunk playability with gtx, I found this article which mentioned a pc which the same specs as mine played the game at only 1080p 30fps.

I came here to see what you guys think I should do and how good I could actually run the game. Current PC specs are in my signature but the waterloop will be ripped out and the CPU will be cooled with an AIO.

All help is much appreciated

The game isn't done yet, so there's literally no way of knowing. There will be optimizations of the game and of GPU drivers, and there may be other changes in the graphics between the E3 demo and the final release.

No way of knowing requirements. That said, if I had to guess, if you try to play with RTX on with your 1080ti then yeah you're gonna be getting 1080p 30fps. But you should probably be okay for 1440p 60hz, although probably not 144hz at reasonable detail settings.

I doubt it will be much more demanding than the Witcher 3. My guess would be a 1070/Vega 56 as the recommended gpu, and something like a gtx 770/R9 280 as the minimum.

I'm also quite certain that the 1080ti should be more than enough for 1440p at 60fps. Not sure about 144fps, though. 

 

EDIT: I looked at the article you mentioned. Firstly, the article is quite outdated, and the author is probably talking out of his ass.

I would recommend the rtx series only if you want Ray tracing there is no other need for it. The gtx 1080ti is just fine unless you have the money to spend. If you do have money to spend then a rtx 2080ti would do it. I hope that cyberpunk has Ray tracing

Unlike in the game Control, Cyberpunk 2077 won't downgrade and turn rasterization into poop to force you to get a RTX card so you can actually have reflections in the game... (some puddles in Control are actually so reflective mirror like it's actually going unrealistic route as well, they tried to make too much emphasizes on DXR).

 

When the game still uses the perfectly good techniques available in rasterization with lots of polishing and optimizing DXR becomes pretty pointless and I'd rather not have the massive fps penalty.

lol thats just specs to make it run see how the world is. not the actual ingame performance. 


a 1080ti will easily be able to handle 1440p max settings. or in your case. (i dont know why) 1080p max settings.

Same as new phones and really any new hardware they purposely try to make as big of a bank as they can

I've heard the demo rig they used at E3 to run the game in 4K was using a 1080 Ti? It shouldn't be massively demanding.

If you want to upgrade and can afford it, I'd go for a 2080 Ti. Due to the performance hit with RTX ray-tracing, you'd be more likely to keep your desired fps without dropping settings. Though the 2080 and 2080 Super are damned fast cards too, just not that much faster than your 1080 Ti in gaming. Biggest advantage AFAIK is the RTX stuff and a better NVENC encoder. 

 


Always try googling your motherboard and looking at the spec sheet and manual - OEMs keep those up for a reason - and maybe you'll learn something 🤔

1080ti was a marvel. about 50 bucks more than msrp 980ti while performing over 40% more is not that bad at alll 
 

also, like i said the performance is gradually increasing. not as big as 1080ti was. but its getting there. only thing they need to do is be less greedy. but im happy to jump nvidias ship if amd can give me a card that gets high end performance and does good raytracing wise too :)

There is no way to know what spec are needed to play the game. But since Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be on consoles keep in mind that they must have a playable version on those since alot of the sales will be generated through those means. As long as your pc is better performing then the current generation of consoles I wouldn't worry too much. It all depends on how much better you want to run the game. They will make the game look "good" on consoles so they can brag about the better graphics so one could assume a 1080ti will do just fine with 2077.  Now can you play at 4k 144hz with max graphics while sitting on discord streaming 1080p to twitch and watching netflix on a 2nd monitor. Maybe not, it all depends on your personal preference on performance and your personal tolerance to fps/graphical settings. If you want to make sure you can do all those things put down the $$$ and get the best of everything once it comes out to have the best possible PC when Cyberpunk comes out.

OP just posted an article explaining that the E3 demo ran 1080p 30FPS. That makes the game, in that incarnation, 8 times as demanding as if it was running 4K 60FPS. Essentially that turns a 1080 Ti into a 750 (non-Ti).

The rumored recommended specs were based of the system being used to demo the game. I would not worry, the game is not yet finished.

Hey man, I will be building a new PC, just because of this game and I have found some articels about the new RTX cards from Nvidia, which is supposed to be released latest in the summer of 2020. Therefore, if I would be in your position, I would just either buy in April 2020 2080 Ti from EVGA, because of their step-up programm, or wait entirely for the new line of GPUs in the summer. 

I will certainly buy as my latest component the GPU in April 2020 and apply later for the step-up and buy "3080 Ti" so to say.

I've already decided that I'm gonna wait, but what's this step up thing you're talking about? Sounds very interesting
