CD Projekt RED continues to release more information on their future project known as Cyberpunk 2077.
Several days after the official trailer was revealed, the Polish video game publisher and developer; released a series of concept artwork images and screenshots from the trailer we all saw during Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference.
But, CDPR also allowed selected few to actually play a demo of Cyberpunk 2077. Obviously, this happened behind closed doors and nobody outside was able to see or play the Cyberpunk 2077 demo.
CDPR did not release an official Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay trailer; however, Alicja Kozera, the junior community specialist at CD Projekt RED, published the specs of the PC used to play the demo.
Cyberpunk 2077 Demo PC Specs
So, here is the rig CDPR brought to run the Cyberpunk 2077 demo:
- CPU: Intel Core i7 8700K at 3.70GHz
- Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix Z370-I Gaming
- RAM: GSkill Ripjaws 5, 2x16GB 3000MHz CL15
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
- Storage: Samsung 960 Pro 512 GB M.2 PCIe
- Power Supply: Corsair SF600 600W
As you can see it is quite a powerful configuration; but before jumping to conclusions, there are several facts you should be aware of.
First, and most important, the game is in early development and obviously not optimized. Second, the Cyberpunk 2077 demo was playable in 4K at 30 frames/second.
Finally, if you think that this is an expensive build (yeah, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is quite expensive even on Amazon); you have to be aware that Cyberpunk 2077 will most likely not be released before 2020.
By then, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will probably be replaced by the 12 series.
Last but not least, most sources indicate that Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the titles that will be available for the next generation of consoles.
Assuming that Cyberpunk 2077 will indeed release in 2020, we believe the PC specs above are more than acceptable.
