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...

Cyberpunk 2077 minimum system requirements

Cyberpunk 2077 recommended system requirements

In order to play Cyberpunk 2077 you will need at least a GeForce GTX 1060 or Radeon R9 FURY graphics card paired with either a Core i7-4790 or Ryzen 3 3200G processor in order to meet the recommended system requirements and run on High graphics settings at 1080p resolution. For your PC setup to completely match the recommended speccs you will also need 12GB of RAM.

For the minimum Cyberpunk 2077 system requirements you will need at least a GeForce GTX 780 or Radeon RX 470 GPU, this should then be coupled with a Core i5-3570K or FX-8310 CPU as well as 8GB of system memory. This setup should then deliver aroun 30fps on Low graphics settings at 1080p resolution.

Make sure that your GPU is able to run DirectX12 in order to play Cyberpunk 2077 smoothly.

"Looks like I won't need to upgrade after all. I'm still gonna wait for benchmarks, requirements usually don't mean everything."
"I wonder how much these requirements are going to differ depending on the resolution and if you're playing with rtx on or off."
"It really says nothing about what kind of meaningful settings or framerate targets those are… I hate it when these reqs are so vague…"
"I'm so happy right now because I was really afraid that we were gonna need an RTX 20 Series at the very lease and lads… I'm so glad that I was wrong! "
"These requirements are bound to be amended for 4k/ultra/ray tracing settings, but it might be that it's only the GPU recommendations that show any significant change."
