Cyberpunk 2077 With Prettier Visuals Will Require a Powerful PC

The release of enhanced ray tracing in the PC edition of Cyberpunk 2077 is approaching, and representatives of CD Projekt RED and Nvidia have shared more details related to the „technology of the future.”.

Last week's Game Developers Conference 2023 featured a panel on improved ray tracing in Cyberpunk 2077. While discussing the revolutionary technology, numerous interviews were given by Jakub Knapik (art director from CD Projekt RED) and Pawel Kozlowski (senior programmer and technology engineer from Nvidia), who were present.

  • During the conversation with a PCWorld journalist the men discussed in detail the most important issues related to Ray Tracing: Overdrive mode, including its system requirements. These are sizable, and not every PC owner will get a taste of the technology of the future.
  • According to Kozlowski, to run Overdrive ray tracing, we will need hardware equipped with GeForce 40-series GPU. This is because only they support DLSS 3 technology, which can sufficiently take care of the game's performance.
  • A small consolation is that Ray Tracing: Overdrive will not be reserved exclusively for GeForce 4090. Nvidia's technology engineer reassured that their goal is that this mode, and without significant fps drops, can also be enjoyed by owners of weaker chips such as the RTX 4070.

CD Projekt RED has revealed the release date for enhanced ray tracing in Cyberpunk 2077 on PC during "Cyberpunk 2077 RT: Overdrive - Bringing Path Tracing into the Night City." Ray Tracing: Overdrive will be made available on April 11. Unfortunately, no new footage was presented at the conference to showcase the capabilities of Nvidia's technology, so we can't help but wait patiently for the release and rely on the last year's trailer.

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
