Cyberpunk 2077 : AMD Ray Tracing NOT Available At Launch!

Sadly, it has now been confirmed that Cyberpunk 2077 will NOT support ray tracing on AMD RDNA 2 graphics cards when it launches…

 

Cyberpunk 2077 Ray Tracing on AMD Cards : Yes? No? Maybe?

Back in October 2020, CD PROJEKT RED art director Jakup Knapik confirmed, in a PC Gamer interview, that only NVIDIA GeForce cards will support ray tracing at launch.

However, CD PROJEKT RED lead PR manager Radek Adam Grabowski, later clarified that Cyberpunk 2077 ray tracing is based on DirectX Raytracing (DXR).

“CP2077’s implementation of ray tracing is based on fully standard DirectX Raytracing (DXR)”

Even NVIDIA’s Brian Burke noted that Cyberpunk 2077 uses the industry-standard DirectX Raytracing API :

“Cyberpunk 2077 uses the industry standard DirectX Ray Tracing API. It will work on any DXR-compatible GPU. Nothing related to Cyberpunk 2077 ray tracing is proprietary to NVIDIA”

 

Cyberpunk 2077 : Ray Tracing NOT Available For AMD Cards At Launch!

When CD PROJEKT RED announced updated system requirements for Cyberpunk 2077, many noticed something odd.

While they listed the new Radeon RX 6800 XT, it was for Cyberpunk 2077 without ray tracing. It was not mentioned in the “ray tracing enabled” section.

CD PROJEKT RED later confirmed that AMD Radeon RX 6000 series cards, which are based on the new RDNA 2 architecture, will NOT support ray tracing on Cyberpunk 2077 when it launches on 10 December 2020.

“We are working together with AMD to integrate ray tracing options for their graphics cards as quickly as possible,” CD PROJEKT RED wrote. “However, this will not be the case when the game launches.”

As Cyberpunk 2077 uses the industry-standard DirectX Raytracing (DXR) API, gamers are wondering – why isn’t it being implemented for AMD RDNA 2 cards?

Technically, they should be able to support ray tracing through the DXR API without any special modification in the. game.

Rumours have it that ray tracing for AMD RDNA 2 cards will be introduced via a patch in 2021.

Is it possible that CD PROJEKT RED worked out a deal with NVIDIA to reserve ray tracing support for GeForce cards for the first few months?

Tell us what you think!

Cyberpunk 2077 : Updated PC Specifications For RTX Gaming

NVIDIA just released updated PC specifications for RTX gaming on Cyberpunk 2077!

Check out these updated requirements to make sure you are ready to turn RTX on when Cyberpunk 2077 launches!

 

Cyberpunk 2077 : Updated PC Specifications For RTX Gaming

NVIDIA today revealed their updated system configurations for RTX gameplay.

CPU

  • 1080p : Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G
  • 1440p or 4K : Intel Core i7-6700 or AMD Ryzen 5 3600

Graphics Card

Graphics Memory

  • 1080p : 6 GB
  • 1440p : 8 GB
  • 4K : 10 GB

System Memory + Storage

  • All resolutions : 16 GB RAM + 70 GB SSD

This is what NVIDIA says about RTX gaming on Cyberpunk 2077 :

The minimum GPU for Ray Tracing, at 1920×1080, is the GeForce RTX 2060. Gamers will explore Night City with Medium Ray Tracing Preset powered by DLSS.

At 2560×1440, we recommend a GeForce RTX 3070 or GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Ray tracing is taken to Ultra, which greatly increases the fidelity of the aforementioned effects, and the distance at which they are visible, while DLSS provides boosted frame rates with uncompromised image quality.

And with rasterized settings also being cranked to Ultra, GeForce RTX 3070 and 2080 Ti gamers receive an incredible experience at the highest detail levels, unmatched by any other platform.

And finally, if you’re playing at 4K or beyond, the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3090 deliver the performance to play Cyberpunk 2077 with ray tracing at Ultra at this incredibly demanding resolution.

Both GPUs are powered by Ampere — NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture — with dedicated RT Cores for ray tracing, and Tensor Cores for DLSS AI acceleration, delivering an unrivaled cinematic-quality experience.

 

Cyberpunk 2077 : Updated PC Specifications With RTX Off

What if you don’t feel the need to turn on ray tracing in Cyberpunk 2077?

Here are the recommended system specifications to game on Cyberpunk 2077 with RTX off :

CPU

Cyberpunk 2077 Behind The Scenes RTX Gameplay Interview!

While you wait for Cyberpunk 2077 to arrive in 2020 or 2077, here is an interview with CD PROJEKT RED developers, as well as new RTX gameplay scenes!

 

Cyberpunk 2077 Behind The Scenes RTX Gameplay Interview!

Will Cyberpunk 2077 finally launch on 10 December 2020? Or will it end up debuting in 2077? Who knows?

But to whet your appetite while you wait, here is an interview with CD PROJEKT RED developers, as well as new RTX gameplay scenes!

As NVIDIA’s Andrew Burnes notes, “With RTX On, Night City is transformed. Glorious ray-traced reflections are cast on every possible surface; substantially improved shadows naturally soften and sharpen; shops, streets and buildings are realistically illuminated with diffuse lighting; and in general the world is more immersive and detailed, enhancing your Cyberpunk 2077 experience.
