Check below to see if your rig can handle CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077.

Developer CD Projekt Red has provided a more detailed look into the recommended PC specs required to play Cyberpunk 2077--including what hardware you’ll need to run the game in 4K, with ray tracing, and more.

Despite the high-fidelity many Cyberpunk 2077 videos display, the basic system requirements aren't as demanding as you might expect. For example, the minimum specifications only require an Intel Core i5-3570K or AMD FX-8310 processor, which were introduced in 2012 and 2014, respectively. The recommended requirements get a little more demanding, necessitating an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon R9 Fury graphics card. But both of these, similar to the processors, are a couple of years old.

The new specifications that CD Projekt Red has added show what hardware players who want to run Ultra graphics, 2K, or 4K resolution will need. Players looking to max out the game, AKA running ray tracing on UItra at 4K, will require the still-scarce Nvidia RTX 3080.

Check below to see if your rig can handle Cyberpunk 2077, and what settings you’ll be running it on. If you’re not happy with your options, you now have extra time to upgrade ahead of the game's new December 10 release date--Cyperpunk 2077's third delay in a year.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches on December 10 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S and Series X. The action-RPG also drops on Google Stadia later this year. The studio confirmed the next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 won't receive the $10 price hike some other games--like NBA 2K21--have gotten. Instead, the game will be a free upgrade for people on current-gen hardware.
