Cyberpunk 2077 - CDProjekt's New Joint

Wait, what?!?! It has cross save between PS5 and PC? Ugh. I might have to rebuy it now.

This is a ridiculously good looking game. I’m wondering how much of that is game upgrades and how much my own hardware upgrades :)

And hey, you can look behind you while driving in first person now, awesome :)

Well they proved that ray tracing is viable if it’s done correctly. I think for the most part the consoles are screwed, but maybe there will be a mid gen upgrade that changes that. I tested turning it on and off and it’s amazing how much depth it adds.

Word. I played 1.0 and 1.6 on my old PC (with a GTX 1060) and it was OK. Playing this now on a 3060 on Ultra and wow, this is really impressive, even without raytracing. Looks amazing, better than any game I’ve played, I think.

Maybe they are trying to be the modern day Origins? You pretty much needed a new computer each time a new game came out. Strike Commander woof…

Yep! You just have to connect it to a CDPR account with a QR code.

I ran the benchmark after 2.0 and was getting 64 fps on my custom settings for my 3060ti and after updating my drivers I lost around 4 fps in the benchmark. Sigh.

Has anyone tried the RTX on a RTX 2080ti? Every time I’ve tried it in the past, the option had terrible performance so I just turn it off. I’m seriously considering a double dip on the PC side to compliment my PS5/couch time.

Do I understand right that crafting is now open to all builds? I can’t find any ‘gatekeeping’ in the tech perk tree.

If so, best change ever, along with loot changes.

New cyberware system is also great.

DF reviews Ray Retracing in DLSS 3.5 in the new Cyberpunk 2077 patch.

TL;DR: this might be a kind of breakthrough moment in RT graphics tech – there are still some issues for sure, but it seems like it makes path tracing RT into a viable thing going forward.

Yes! There is only one associated perk and I believe it affects only how much material you get.

What a great video which really shows how amazing the graphics in CP2077 are.

I have a 3080 and now I feel I need a 4090.

I got to keep an eye out for that. I didn’t read the patch notes until after my first session with the patch and was pleasantly surprised when I run into the new arcade game Trauma Drama. Would be cool if they eventually replace all the arcade cabinets with working games!

Started a new game as a street kid, the game runs a hell of a lot better than when I last played it at version 1.06

Does the game run a lot better… of did you have a hardware upgrade at any moment in the last three years?

Well yeah I did, lol. 3080ti and a 5900x might have something to do with the better performance also. :)

I last played this game in December 2020.

I thought so ;)

Hell, I played CP with my old gtx 1080 when it released in 2020!

Heh, just about everything but my motherboard has been replaced since Cyberpunk’s initial release.
