Cyberpunk 2077 tech video shows off GeForce RTX 30 effects


Night City Dazzler

CD Projekt RED, in association with Nvidia, has released a short tech video for upcoming RPG Cyberpunk 2077, showcasing its deadly future-noir universe as powered by Nvidia's shiny new range of GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards.

The trailer offers a brief look at several locales within the neon-tinged 'berg, with powerful ray tracing and DLSS 2.0 effects presenting the city at its absolute finest. Predictably, Night City looks absolutely fantastic, with dazzling colour, realistic reflections and shadows, and an abundance of real-time particles, with resolution sharper than a razor blade.

You don't have to take my word for it, check out the video for yourself below.

While it's very likely that a souped-up PC will offer the most visually impressive Cyberpunk 2077 experience, it can't be denied that this could prove the most expensive option, especially should you require a full-rig overhaul. That said, taking this option would almost certainly future-proof your PC gaming experience for 2021 and beyond... Hopefully.

Ultimately, it's a subjective issue - one that comes down to each individual's personal gaming budget and choice of platform. Fortunately, Cyberpunk 2077 will be available on a wide variety of consoles, so very few fans will be left without the means to play it at all.

Cyberpunk 2077 launches November 19 on PS4, PC, and Xbox One. It will arrive on PS5 and Xbox Series X at some point in 2021. You can read more about the RTX 30 cards right here.
