We tested the public release version of Cyberpunk 2077, not a press pre-release. We also installed the latest 1.03 patch. Both AMD and NVIDIA have released game-ready drivers for the game.
Graphics Memory Usage
Using a GeForce RTX 3090, which has 24 GB of VRAM, we measured the game's memory usage at the highest setting.
VRAM requirements are not that crazy, which I find a bit surprising considering all the talk we heard before the game's launch. While cards with 4 GB or less will be seriously challenged at lower resolutions, the extra VRAM usage means crisper textures for the vast majority of gamers whose graphics cards have 8 GB of VRAM or more.
Raytracing does increase the memory requirements surprisingly, to almost 10 GB at 4K.
