CD Projekt Red have confirmed that they will share additional PC system requirements for 4K and ray-tracing a bit closer to the release date of Cyberpunk 2077.

Yesterday, during the third episode of Night City Wire, CD Projekt Red have finally revealed PC system requirements for their upcoming blockbuster Cyberpunk 2077. It's safe to say that the requirements surprised a lot of players who were expecting to see Nvidia's RTX cards and eight-core CPUs on the list.

And while GTX 1060 will be enough to run the game at 1080p, you will probably need a much faster CPU and GPU to crank the settings up to Ultra on higher resolutions and ray-tracing enabled. 

When asked what is the target resolution and FPS for the revealed specs and what GPU is recommended for ray-tracing, CD Projekt Red's Global Community Lead, Marcin Momot responded that the team will talk more about this at a later date, closer to the release of Cyberpunk 2077, which is currently set for November 2020.

"We hear you and we will try to publish configs aimed at 4K, RTX, etc., closer to the release. Stay tuned," Momot tweeted.

As expected, Cyberpunk 2077 is still being optimised which is why the devs are still unsure what kind of GPU is necessary for higher resolutions and settings. We assume you'll probably need something like RTX 2070 or Radeon RX 5700 XT for 1440p while 4K will require RTX 2080 Ti or AMD's upcoming RX 6800 graphics card.
