Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games of 2019-2020 and might just be the hottest release since Red Dead Redemption 2. A vast interest in the game is fueled by the success of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the previous title of CD Projekt. The new game is set in the same multiverse as the previous one: Gerald’s ward Ciri described a world where “people had metal in their heads, waged war from a distance… and everyone had their own flying ship.”
When CD Projekt released The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 2015, it raised the bar for what a gaming PC should consist of, and a similar scenario can happen now as well. Also, keep in mind that the game might become one of the first new-generation console releases. After the demo at E3, a community manager Alicja Kozera shared the specs of the machine, used during the exhibition. Here they are:
- CPU: Intel i7-8700K @ 3.70 GHz
- MB: ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-I GAMING
- RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V, 2x16GB, 3000MHz, CL15
- GPU: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
- SSD: Samsung 960 Pro 512 GB M.2 PCIe
- PSU: Corsair SF600 600W
These are very impressive specs, and it takes several hundred dollars to assemble such a beast of a machine. For those who can’t boast such luxurious specs, the good news is that the demo was shown in 4k resolution, meaning that a weaker machine should handle the game at 1080p just fine.
Here are the likely system requirements for a system to run Cyberpunk 2077 at comfortable 40+ fps with 1080p resolution:
- Processor: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB
- System Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Storage unit: 128GB SSD
If you have these specs, you must be safe, though, as mentioned before, with CD Projekt all bets are off — this studio doesn’t like to compromise.
