I have a lot of love for Movies especially science fiction however nothing beats the fun of sitting behind a screen and playing some hard core FPS games. Apart from them i am a major lover of Assassins Creed titles especially Brotherhood, The Witcher and God Of War. Huge fan of animation director Hayo Mayazaki.
Cyberpunk 2077 was the shining armor of the E3 2019 event. When Keanu Reeves took to the stage and revealed those interesting details about the game, there was nothing that could lower the hype of this upcoming game. With the focus of the fans now shifted towards core gunplay and RPG, there was nothing that could stand in the way. However, as always there was a catch and that was the allegedly rumored Cyberpunk 2077 System Requirements.
In a 50 minute demo, the devs have shifted the focus of the core gunplay to the RPG, having everyone wondering about the PC requirements of the game. We all are aware of the diverse visuals the game will have and the open vast world, taking into the account the player choice and player customization and so much more. All of this certainly requires quite a lot of memory to process. Add that with the recently surfaced news of Cyberpunk 2077 system requirements and the hype bar seems to have been lowered.
Cyberpunk 2077 System Requirements
- CPU: Intel i7-8700K @ 3.70 GHz
- CPU SPEED: Info
- RAM: 16 GB
- OS: Windows 10 64-bit
- VIDEO CARD: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
- PIXEL SHADER: 5.1
- VERTEX SHADER: 5.1
- DEDICATED VIDEO RAM: 4 GB
On that very note, let us clear the air by adding that these are not the official specs for the game and in fact, these originate from a rumor, which by the way had perfect timing. That is why the news of these specs seems to have gained quite the attention.
As per Game Debate,
“We expect the system specs to be sky high for Cyberpunk 2077. Utilising an adapted Witcher 3’s, Red Engine 3 graphics engine, the recommended requirements will likely include an Intel i7 CPU or top end AMD Zen processor. The GPU needed to achieve reliable frame rates at 1080p screen resolution for Cyberpunk 2077 will be around the GTX 980 mark or a top end AMD Radeon. Bare in mind it will release in a few years time. 16GB system memory will also be the normal recommended requirement for Cyberpunk. with 8GB RAM being a minimum.”
So while there still can be doubts, it is to be understood that not many gamers out there have an Intel Core i7 8700K processor along with a 1080Ti GPU. The devs and publishers understand that. If there is more assurance, you should know that games, when developed, are run on the highest possible settings, to benchmark them at maximum level. That is why high-end systems are required when in the final version, the games are notched down to the commercial level for the consumers to be able to play them. It is also made sure that the games are runnable over various specs ranges.
So, until the game actually rolls out, we can not certain about these rumored specs to be the only one. Having said that even if 1080ti is in the settings, it would probably be it the higher end and not at the lower end.
So rest assured if you have a gaming PC, not the 8th Gen i7 with 1080Ti, even then you will be able to play the game, with flying colors.
