The time has finally come, CD Projekt Red have officially revealed the PC system requirements for Cyberpunk 2077 during the most recent episode of Night City Wire, giving us a chance to see whether now is the time to upgrade to Nvidia's brand new RTX 30 series of graphics cards.
CDPR unfortunately didn't supply any ray tracing requirements, so hopefully we'll get some more info on that soon enough. The good news though, is that it looks like we won't be needing to upgrade our hardware to anything crazy in order to get the best experience.
Though they did not supply any performance expectations, so considering the size and scope of CP2077, we can assume these specs will get us 30fps performance, or if anything at least on the minimum requirements side.
So with that out of the way, let's jump right into the official Cyberpunk 2077 PC system requirements...
