Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty PC Specs: NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti + AMD Ryzen 9 7900X for 1080p with Ray Tracing

CD Projekt Red has announced the PC system requirements for Cyberpunk 2077’s first expansion pack, Phantom Liberty. Although the game runs much better now, the updated spec sheet includes next-gen NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards. The chart contains plenty of useful details, including the 1080p and 4K requirements, both with and without ray tracing.

For 1080p Low (30 FPS), you need a GeForce GTX 1060 or a Radeon RX 580 alongside a Core i7-6700 or a Ryzen 5 1600. The memory requirements start at 12GB, and an SSD with 70GB of free storage is recommended. Raising the settings to High plus a 60 FPS target pushes the GPU requirement to a GeForce RTX 2060 Super or a Radeon RX 5700 XT. On the CPU side, you’ll need a Core i7-12700 or a Ryzen 7 7800, both recently launched chips. The memory requirement also scales up to 16GB.

For 4K Ultra (60 FPS) without ray-tracing, you’ll need a Core i9-12900 or a Ryzen 9 7900X with a GeForce RTX 3080 or a Radeon RX 7900 XTX. 20GB of memory and an NVMe SSD with 70GB of free space are recommended.

For 1080p Ray Tracing Ultra (60 FPS), you’ll need a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti or a Radeon RX 7900 XTX. The CPU and memory requirements remain the same as the abovementioned 4K specs. Finally, Ray Tracing Overdrive (Path Tracing) requires an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 and a Core i9-12900/Ryzen 9 7900X plus 24GB of memory.

The CPU settings are worth noting here. In Cyberpunk 2077 ray tracing, the number of rays cast depends on the graphics settings, not the resolution. However, turning Overdrive Mode On ties the ray count to the resolution and the DLSS quality preset.
