Cyberpunk 2077 PC System Requirements: Minimum and Recommended Specs revealed

CD Projekt RED has finally revealed the thing PC gamers around the world have been waiting for... no, not Cyberpunk 2077 itself - that's a few more months yet - but the PC System Requirements for the game.

The System Requirements detail what specification PC you'll need to take a trip to Night City and immerse yourself in the latest sprawling RPG world from the creators of The Witcher video games, as well as the size of the game so you can prepare your storage of choice. Here they are in an image, and then we'll break down the PC specs below:


Cyberpunk 2077 PC Specs: Minimum System Requirements

If you want to play Cyberpunk 2077 on PC as cheaply as possible, the specs might surprise you,as they're not as high-end as we'd suspsected. As listed in the image above, the Minimum System Requirements for Cyberpunk 2077 are as follows:

  • Operating System: 64-bit Windows 7 or 64-bit Windows 10 with DirectX Version 12
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K or AMD FX-8310
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 3GB or AMD Radeon RX 470
  • Storage: 70GB of storage

Cyberpunk 2077 PC Specs: Recommended System Requirements

The minimum specs are of course only what you need to actually launch Cyberpunk 2077 on PC and play it to a competent level, even with the settings turned down.

The recommended system specs are what CD Projekt RED advises for a solid experience, and probably will allow for settings to match current-generation console hardware. Remember that if you have specs beyond this, you'll be able to push the game much further - and if you have access to an Nvidia RTX 20 or 30 series GPU, you'll be able to enjoy real-time ray tracing in the game. It was on an RTX 2080 Ti that we experienced a hands-on with Cyberpunk a couple of months ago. 

  • Operating System: 64-bit Windows 10 with DirectX Version 12
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-4790 or AMD Ryzen 3 3200G
  • Memory: 12GB RAM
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB or AMD Radeon R9 Fury
  • Storage: 70GB of SSD storage
