E3 has seen the amazing, if very hush-hush, presentation of the demo version for Cyberpunk 2077. Some of those able to see it voiced how impressed they were, proclaiming it to be next-gen graphics.
And now, courtesy of CDPR themselves we know that the demo was showing the actual game, in its intended engine REDendinge4 and wasn’t pre-rendered just for the show. CDPR also revealed the full specs of the machine that allowed such performance. It’s as follows:
CPU: Intel i7-8700K @ 3.70 GHz MB: ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-I GAMING RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V, 2x16GB, 3000MHz, CL15 GPU: GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SSD: Samsung 960 Pro 512 GB M.2 PCIe PSU: Corsair SF600 600W
Ooof, that’s hefty. There’s no way my current PC can handle this monstrosity, although for what we’ve seen, this is still surprisingly conservative. And it of course should be noted that this is by no means the ideal specs, so it’s possible even more juice could be squeezed out of this bad boy. But XboxOne running that? I dunno. This actually might BE next generation stuff.
Still no release date in sight of course, but it seems like we’re getting closer and closer to it.
