With Cyberpunk 2077's new release date of 10th December not too far off, PC gamers don't have a lot of time to smash their Piggy Banks open, if they want to experience Ray Tracing in the highly-anticipated RPG. While CD Projekt RED has previously revealed the minimum and recommended PC system requirements for Cyberpunk 2077, they have now revealed the Ray Tracing specs needed, including what you need to run the game in 4K with Ray Tracing enabled.

On Twitter, The Global Communication Lead for Cyberpunk 2077 and CD Projekt RED, Marcin Momot, revealed the game's Ray Tracing PC system requirements.

These Cyberpunk 2077 requirements are a bit steep, as one would expect with Ray Tracing enabled.

The PC system requirements with Ray Tracing are broken down into three sections, namely the minimum (1080p), the High (1440p) and the Ultra (4K) with the specs required.

Check out the Cyberpunk 2077 Ray Tracing PC system requirements below.

 

Ray Tracing Minimum (1080p, RT medium settings)

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G
  • RAM: 16GB
  • GPU: Nvidia RTX 2060
  • VRAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 70GB SSD

Ray Tracing High (1440p, RT ultra settings)

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • RAM: 16GB
  • GPU: Nvidia RTX 3070
  • VRAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 70GB SSD

Ray Tracing Ultra (2160p, RT ultra settings)

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • RAM: 16GB
  • GPU: Nvidia RTX 3080
  • VRAM: 10GB
  • Storage: 70GB SSD

Cyberpunk 2077 with Ray Tracing obviously looks incredible, as you can see in the video from NVIDIA below.

If you want to experience Ray Tracing in Cyberpunk 2077 on PC at launch, there's some bad news for AMD GPU owners. 

Marcin Momot replied on Twitter to a fan asking about Ray Tracing with AMD graphics cards, stating: "Not for the release but we are working together with AMD to introduce this feature as soon as we can."

While this might be a letdown for some PC gamers, Cyberpunk 2077 looks spectacular even without Ray Tracing. For those with an RTX 2060 and up, however, the game will look even better.
