CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is easily one of the most highly anticipated games, regardless of your chosen platform. Yesterday, CD Projekt Red released a 48-minute gameplay demo for Cyberpunk 2077, showcasing spectacular visuals and a detail-rich world that is full of civilians and activities to work through.  

This demo sent many questions spinning through the minds of gamers. Is Cyberpunk designed for next-generation hardware? Will CD Projekt be teaming up with Nvidia once again and will Cyberpunk make use of cutting-edge graphical techniques like Real-Time Ray Tracing on PC. 

Shortly after the release of Cyberpunk 2077’s gameplay demo, a screenshot appeared on the Nvidia subreddit which showcases what appears to be Cyberpunk 2077’s graphical options menu, which reveals Low, Medium, High, Ultra and “OVERKILL”, graphical presets, as well as Nvidia branded graphical features. While this options menu does appear to match Cyberpunk’s visual style, this screenshot could easily be fake. 

In the screenshot below we can see options for Nvidia HairWorks, which was available in The Witcher 3 and an option for Nvidia Raytracing, which is likely to make use of Nvidia’s RTX technology. 

This screenshot has not been confirmed as legitimate, though the Cyberpunk 2077 twitter account has called Nvidia RTX “Beautiful” in the past and has stated that they “don’t have any details to share at the moment” when questioned about RTX support.

At this time, Cyberpunk 2077 has no firm release date, with many fans suspecting a 2020 launch. This release timeframe would place Cyberpunk 2077 within the realms of next-generation graphics cards from all manufacturers, perhaps even into an era of post-Turing 7nm GPUs from Nvidia.
