- For the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 Nvidia released new dedicated GPU drivers. They significantly improve the game's performance.
- In addition, there are hints on the web as to which graphic settings put the most strain on the GPU.
Nvidia released new game ready drivers for its GeForce GPUs. The most important innovation is the optimization for Cyberpunk 2077, which has tremendous system requirements if you want to enjoy good quality graphics at high resolutions.
If you were hoping to run the game in 4K, enable ray tracing, and enjoy steady 60 fps, you can forget about it, even on the GeForce RTX 3090. Even the DLSS 2.0 option, which is often your savior with this game, in this case, at this resolution (with RT enabled) can't provide smooth gameplay. Luckily, if after disabling ray tracing and leaving DLSS on, fps gains are twice the default number, as Nvidia has shown.
However, if you're experiencing performance issues, i.a. massive drops in some moments of the game, have a look at the graphic settings. As one of Reddit users discovered, it is enough to set the cascading shadows option to medium (or low). As a result, Cyberpunk 2077 jumped from less than 20 frames to a stable 60 fps on his GeForce RTX 3070 at 3840x1620.
If you don't have the game yet, and you're wondering what exactly you can choose in the game's options, take a look at this news. A comparison of visuals of PC and PS4 releases launched on PS5 can be found here. Just if you have some doubts as to which version to choose.
