1080p Benchmarks at Medium and Ultra Settings

Cyberpunk 2077 is a hugely demanding game, and older graphics architecture are feeling the strain. Turing and Ampere GPUs are storming ahead of their Pascal counterparts, and similar feats can be seen on RDNA when compared to older GCN graphics cards. 

Nvidia was heavily involved in the development of Cyberpunk 2077, and that can be seen clearly by how well Cyberpunk 2077 leverages Ampere and Turing graphics card. It is rare to see Nvidia's RTX 2060 competing favourably with Nvidia's GTX 1080 Ti, even without DLSS. Add on DLSS and Nvidia's RTX 2060 has turned into an excellent Cyberpunk 2077 graphics card. 

Below we have tested Cyberpunk 2077 at Medium and Ultra settings to best cater to users of older GPU architectures. At Ultra, even popular GPUs like the RX 580 and GTX 1060 fall below 30 FPS at 1080p Ultra settings. Users of these older GPUs should use lower graphics settings and FidelityFX CAS to gain additional performance.

6800XT on can it run cyberpunk settings, yes, yes it can

It looks stunning, whenever they add dxr for amd cards i hope it is as smooth as now all be it lower fps, cause the game is very eye candy and i'm enjoying it, yet to have a single bug, but yea i get that a lot of people are getting some real weird bugs in the game.

Consoles far worse, it should change for ps5 and xboxSX, but this is the first game I'd say is a next gen title.Quote

I haven't played the game myself, but it truly is stunning to look at. Despite all the challenges, CD Projekt Red deserve a huge round of applause. What they've built is an incredible feat that'll likely always be remembered.Quote

With RT enabled this is by far the best looking PC game I have ever seen. Even without it it's still stunning.

But yeah, as I kinda guessed RT is big in this one. Thankfully you don't need stupid FPS either, considering it's a single player mainly RPG.

It's not even a proper next gen title either. It's a "best of the last gen we will see" game.

Edit. My manners have gone for a walk again FFS. Thank you for doing this. Also, big up for putting the 2080Ti in there too. I can see why many didn't now. Once you get to high settings at 1440p it runs out of VRAM.Quote

CPU performance on Ryzen can be improved quite a bit if you modify the hex code in the .exe file.

With that said haven't done it myself. Not really interested in the game tbhQuote
