Cyberpunk 2077 had an impressive trailer debut at E3 this year, and the gameplay that was shown behind closed doors was enough to wow most viewers. Now, we’ve learned a little more about what CD Projekt Red had running under the hood for that impressive demo.
Marcin Iwiński, one of the co-founders of CD Projekt Red, confirmed that the demo that was shown at E3 was a real build of the game, not just something that was mocked up or hand-build to show off to the press at E3. While this makes the showcase that much more impressive, CD Projekt Red also revealed the machine that the game was running on, and players’ wallets are going to be hard-pressed to build a PC with equivalent specs.
Here’s the full breakdown of the computer CD Projekt RED used to show off the demo.
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
That’s a beefy setup, though some PC gamers with larger budgets might be able to match it by the time Cyberpunk 2077 releases. Console gamers, however, are stuck with whatever power current consoles can provide, and even the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro aren’t quite that powerful yet. However, CD Projekt RED has confirmed that it’s aiming to bring Cyberpunk 2077 to current consoles, not next-gen ones, so we’ll see how the game runs once it’s finished and playing on an Xbox, PlayStation, or lower-end PC.
Cyberpunk 2077 is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
