We have already seen that Cyberpunk takes advantage of the capabilities of high-end game rigs, with ray traced lighting effects and other advanced visual effects, but what level of hardware will constitute the baseline for running Cyberpunk 2077? CD Projekt Red has released the official system requirements, so you can check out how your rig measures up against the official game specifications now.

Or you can head over to our builds page if you’re looking for a guide to assembly yourself a new gaming PC. Now is a great time to think about upgrading, and Cyberpunk 2077 would be a fantastic first big game to push your new PC with.

In the future, we hope to have a tool up and running that will scan your PC automatically and determine what components it has under the hood. This should simplify the process considerably. As of writing, the utility is still in development, but rest assured we’ll make a song and dance of it once available.

Cyberpunk 2077 Game Details

  • Release Date: 10th December 2020 (PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia) OUT NOW!
  • System Requirements: High
  • Genre: Role-playing game
  • Developer: CD Projekt Red
  • Publisher: CD Projekt

Cyberpunk 2077 is an upcoming open-world RPG title from the developer behind the massively successful The Witcher series. 

Inspired by the tabletop role-playing game of the same name, Cyberpunk 2077 is set in the dystopian metropolis of Night City, California. This teeming megacity is broken down into six districts each with their own unique socio-economic and cultural flavor. Ruthless gangs, corporate behemoths, wealthy suburbanites, and hackers mingle in a melting point of technology, transhumanist ideals, violent crime, corruption, and blinding neon where pretty much anything goes.

The player takes on the role of a freelance mercenary of sorts named V, and through first-person gameplay, explores the horizontal and vertical limits of this towering city on the periphery of the American continent.

V can be customized based on a wealth of skills, attributes, and stats ranging from technologically-replicated body modifications, physical appearance, class (netrunner, techie, and solo) each with their own specialty, and weapon perks. 

CD Projekt Red has a reputation for creating the most immersive action-RPG world’s we’ve seen this generation and Cyberpunk 2077 looks to follow in that established tradition.

Alongside, Cyberpunk 2077 promises brutal melee combat, heated firefights, breakneck speed vehicle chases, a full day-night cycle, dynamic weather, and a world that reacts to the player’s actions and decisions – an RPG the likes of which we’ve never seen before, or at least, it appears that way.

  1. I have about the same specs with 16gb ram and im.getting about 45 to 65 fps with ultra and high at 1440p hope it helps

  2. Will a 2080 support 1080p max settings and ultra ray tracing at 60fps?

    don’t be ridiculous, if these are the minimum requirements they will lose a lot of sales and get a lot of refunds

  4. I support this game at 1080p ultra with my rtx 2060?

  5. Cyberpunk will run on PS4 and XBOX guys… any low budget notebook gamer will work with it in medium-high settings and with a great FPS. Maybe better than consoles.

    My opinion recommended specs even if it’s a little expensive and overkill. Just remember to get what you are looking for in a motherboard. What it will be doing for you now and in the future? A new mobo socket will most likely be coming out in 2021/2022 with Ryzen 5000 Zen 3/Zen 4. X570 socket will likely be a dead end by the end of 2020.

    Mobo choices: Gigabyte X570 AORUS Ultra, ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero X570, MSI MPG X570 Gaming PRO Carbon WiFi,
    CPU: AMD Ryzen 3700x
    Videocard: Nvidia 2080 or wait for Ampere / AMD Radeon 5700 XT
    Memory: G.Skill 32 GB DDR4 3200

  7. I wanted to know if this is genuine. What is the source of this information regarding specifications?

  8. I bought a gaming laptop at the end of 2018 and I’m afraid if I’ll be able to run this game on 1080p:
    _ GTX 1060 3GB
    _ i5 7300HQ
    _ 8GB RAM DDR5 (I’ll probably add more to have 16GB)

    Reply
    • 1060 3 GB is killing your rig man.. aside from that i think you’re fine, adding more 8 GB did a big difference to me (have a Gaming NB too, but 1060 6gb)

  9. I have core i7
    16gb ram
    Amd r7 360

  10. I have a hard time believing this was written by anybody with any clue about oc hardware, they imagine minimum spec will be a 1070 or if well optimised a 960… In what world is a 960 even close to a 1070, it wouldnt have to be well optimised it would have to be a different game altogether. Then they go on to say if a 2070 doesnt run like a dream even at 4k we are in for a rude awakening lol i have a 9900k and 2080ti and theres a list of games as long as my arm that wont run like a dream at 4k with respectable quality settings, considering this game is a very high budget triple A offering we shouldnt expect a 2070 to get anywhere near 60fps at 4k, the game will be very scaleable and will clearly run on a lot of hardware as it is also a current gen console game too but it will be 30fps on current gen consoles, xbox one x included, thats why they might manage 4k, 30fps is not the benchmark we aim for on pc.

    Anyway it was an interesting if rather off the mark read, thanks.

    • @Jason Clarke were you drunk when you read the end of the article? It makes no mention of a RTX 2070.

    • Will I be able to run it on ultra 1440 ?
      Ryzen 5 3600

      • You have a decent PC build, however, I doubt it’ll run Cyberpunk in 1440p Ultra.

        Reply
  11. If this are specs for Cyberpunk than who gonna play it? I bet only 2 % of the gamers who want to buy and play this title have specs like u mentioned above..So if developers want to sell the game must think about that.

    • not really, if you’re complaining about it, play on console
