CD Projekt recently dropped an updated PC system requirements for their most anticipated upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077. Based on the updated system requirements, you’ll need at least an RX 6800 XT or RTX 3070/3080 to play this game at 4K UHD with ultra graphics settings. And if you want to play it with all the bells and whistles (raytracing at ultra), then you’ll need an RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 graphics card. CD Projekt also released several new videos and gameplay trailers, building up the hype (again). Check out the updated system requirements and new trailers below.
Cyberpunk 2077 UPDATE PC System Requirements
CD Projekt provided an updated PC system requirements showing what kind of hardware or PC components you need to run the game properly and smoothly in different resolutions.
Based on the updated Cyberpunk 2077 system requirements, you’ll need at least an RTX 2080 Super or RTX 3070 to play the game at ultra graphics settings at 4K UHD. That’s for the NVIDIA side, and for the AMD side, you’ll need the latest RX 6800 (XT) to play this game at ultra graphics setting in 4K.

Interestingly, the table didn’t mention AMD’s new RX 6000 cards when you want to play the game with raytracing enabled. Based on reviews of the RX 6800 (XT), we saw that its raytracing capabilities aren’t as good compared to the RTX 30 series cards. I’m not surprised since the RTX 30 series cards are built with 2nd gen RT cores, while this is the first for AMD.

New Cyberpunk 2077 New Gameplay Trailers, Behind The Scenes and Soundtrack
Aside from the updated PC system requirements, the team also uploaded several new videos for Cyberpunk 2077. There’s a new gameplay trailer and the Johnny Silverhand official trailer. The two trailers give us an idea why Johnny (played by Keanu Reeves) is there with you and perhaps his goal.

CD Projekt also uploaded a behind the scenes with Keanu Reeves and how the company developed the music score and soundtrack for the said game. It looks and sounds “breathtaking”; and I can’t wait to hear what the music score and soundtrack Cyberpunk 2077 has to offer!
