Cyberpunk 2077 Performance Analysis

The Witcher as Punk. Polish developer CD Projekt, which is known for the Witcher series, tries its hand at a Sci-Fi RPG in the Deus Ex style. After years of waiting, Cyberpunk 2077 is finally here. We analyse its performance to determine how demanding it is.

Cyberpunk 2077

Technology

Cyberpunk 2077 relies on a proprietary engine known as REDengine. It was developed by CD Projekt Red. As you can see from the screenshots, the visuals in Cyberpunk 2077 are very impressive and not only for an RPG. Cyberpunk is one of the prettiest games on PC, despite the fact that it is a massive open-world title.

All in all, the first-person game puts all other competitors to shame, thanks to its highly detailed and rich world. When you look around in the game—whether you are indoors or outdoors—the massive amount of detail makes you realise why it took so long to develop. The effects are also incredibly impressive. The game world is chock-full of neon lights, which are reflected in a dreamlike manner off of metallic and wet surfaces. 

There is also nothing bad to say about the textures. On high settings, most objects in the game look very sharp and well-defined. However, there are occasional graphical glitches here and there. And there are also drops in performance. Howbeit, these flaws do not spoil the overall grandiose atmosphere.

In our testing, the game ran surprisingly well—at least in terms of stability. In the past, ambitious releases from CD Projekt (the Witcher 1) had plenty of technical issues at launch. Cyberpunk starts relatively quickly and the loading times are quite short. The game size for a 2020 release is not that large as well. Cyberpunk only takes up about 60 GB of storage space. Moreover, CD Projekt did not use any DRM with Cyberpunk 2077.

Those who like to tinker with graphics settings will be happy to learn that Cyberpunk 2077 offers a robust graphics settings menu. While the Video tab offers only 6 settings, the Graphics tab offers over 30 settings. There are also helpful descriptions, which explain what each setting does. Fortunately, Cyberpunk 2077 features a number of graphical presets, which change all settings in one fell swoop. Moreover, the game also includes presets for ray tracing, which can only be enabled on supported GPUs. The same applies to Nvidia’s DLSS feature. Positive: Settings can be changed without a restart.

In the few hours that we spent playing the game, Cyberpunk 2077 proved to be quite impressive. The superb character creator, cleverly made tutorial, fascinating missions that take you to different places, and the freedom to play in whatever manner you like all combine to create a very memorable gaming experience. In Cyberpunk 2077, you can focus on developing stealth or hacking skills, or alternatively you can put all your efforts into becoming the deadliest gunfighter in Night City. However, we think that CD Projekt slightly overdid it with the content. Because there are so many objects and activities in the game world the inventory screen, the map and the Analysis Mode become so overloaded with stuff that sometimes it is easy to lose track of things.

Benchmark

Because Cyberpunk 2077 does not offer a built-in benchmark, we had to create our own benchmark sequence. As you can see in the video below, our 70-second benchmark run consists of a ride in a car driven by an NPS known as Jackie through the Japantown district of Night City. Our benchmark sequence ends right before our car is attacked by a squad of thugs in a van. We chose to play as a Street Kid and the mission in the benchmark is called “The Rescue”. It takes place about one hour in. We use CapFrameX to record the frame rates. It is also worth mentioning that the performance we saw in our benchmark is representative of the overall performance you are like to see in the game.

Results

FHD (1920x1080)

Owners of notebooks with weaker GPUs can simply forego buying Cyberpunk 2077. iGPUs and entry-level cards such as the GeForce MX330 and the MX350 cannot handle the game even at 720p on the lowest settings. The same applies to some older lower mid-range GPUs such as the GeForce GTX 1050. To run Cyberpunk 2077 at 1080p, you will need a current mid-range GPU. The GeForce GTX 1650 (Ti) and the Radeon RX 5500M can achieve playable frame rates on the low preset, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti can run the game smoothly on the medium preset, and the GeForce RTX 2060 can handle Cyberpunk on ultra settings.

To game at 1440p, you will need a true high-end GPU. Presently, only laptops with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 can achieve decent frame rates (40+ FPS) in Cyberpunk 2077 on the highest settings at this resolution.

At the moment, there are no laptop GPUs that can achieve playable frame rates at 4K in Cyberpunk 2077. Notebooks with the highest-end GPU deliver slide-shows on the ultra preset at UHD resolution.

Ray Tracing

The game gets even more demanding with ray tracing enabled. There are no laptops that can achieve playable frame rates at 1080p with RT effects set to ultra. Playing at 4K with ray tracing set to ultra is out of the question for any laptop and the vast majority of desktop PCs. However, we must mention that we did not use DLSS in our benchmarks.

Note

Because benchmarking video games is very time consuming and is often constrained by installation/activation limits, at the time of publishing, we were able only to provide a part of our performance analysis of Cyberpunk 2077. Other graphics cards will be added in the coming days and weeks.

5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
60Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 58fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
?Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.

I discovered my interest in computers in my childhood, growing up with MS-DOS and Windows 3.1 in the early 1990s. I was especially fascinated with computer games, even from an early age. From Monkey Island through Lands of Lore to Doom, I tried every game I could get my hands on. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2009 with my focus mostly being on high-performance gaming laptops.
