Cyberpunk 2077 system requirements updated for 4K and ray tracing

November 20, 2020 The Cyberpunk 2077 system requirements have been updated with more specific specs for 1440p, 4K, and ray tracing.

CD Projekt Red’s cyberpunk ’em up is shaping up to be one of the biggest of the gaming year. A couple of Cyberpunk 2077 release date delays have only enforced the hype, too. It’s all well and good, but, eh, what are the system requirements? My PC could fall to bits at a moment’s notice – it’s old! – so it’d be good to know if I need to shop for an upgrade or two.

The devs previously released system requirements a few months ago, and while those initial minimum and recommended hardware targets are unchanged, we’ve now got five more sets of recommendations for proper performance at 1440p, 4K, and ray tracing at various resolution.

The basic requirements at 1080p are surprisingly undemanding, though naturally you’ll need much beefier hardware to stand a chance with ray tracing, or at 4K.
