Cyberpunk 2077 minimum and recommended PC specs

Check out the minimum and recommended PC specs for Cyberpunk 2077.

5

Cyberpunk 2077 is nearly here, and we finally have the minimum and recommended PC specs required to play the game. The good news is, they don’t look too intimidating, especially in the age of the 30XX series of GPUs coming from NVIDIA, but they're also going to force some folks to spend some precious cash on a few upgrades if they want to get the most out of the experience.

        Yeah, it really does. That's exciting because it means that beast PCs are going to be able to pull very high resolutions at high refresh rates. It should be gorgeous.

        This is going to be releasing on Xbox One, right? So it stands to reason it'll be pretty scalable. Minimum requirements are actually way higher than a Xbox One, closer to a PS4 Pro

          The recommended specs are waay lower than I was expecting

      Surprised by the recommended spec of R9 Fury. That thing is at least a couple of generations old. I upgrade mine when it worked poorly on Oculus Link and HL Alyx was approaching. But at the time, it was working surprisingly on many games.

        It's barely even a real product. It was pulled like a couple months after it didn't sell.

        It's actually should be faster than a GTX 1060, but AMD basically abandoned the card with driver optimizations. Like the RX 480 beats the Fury in a lot of games.

        I never owned a Fury but I think that's pretty terrible. Makes me second guess going with AMD cards more than any other issue.

      Only 70GB? Going to cancel my pre-order and wait for reviews then.
