Ray Tracing in Cyberpunk 2077 is now enabled on AMD cards

1 : Anonymous2021/03/29 09:48 ID: mflxd8

"Enabled Ray Tracing on AMD graphics cards. Latest GPU drivers are required."

Edit: Will be enabled for the 6000 series with the upcoming 1.2 patch.

"Cat food needed to adopt Nibbles can now be bought at several food shops around Night City."

Best change of all.

Cat Food is so easy to find, I hope they didn't spend too long on that.

I know, at least as long you didn't picked it up and sold it already. But it was a joke comment anyway.

Ok now let's see how it performs

ID: gsohn06

Prepare to be whelmed.

ID: gsolu38

Is there any concrete reason why Ray Tracing is slower with the Radeon RX?

ID: gsojoge

Underrated young justice comment is much appreciated.

ID: gsp730p

Oof ... without AMD's DLSS alternative, this is ain't gonna be pretty.

This is Path of Exile level of patch notes here. God damn.

I mean this cant be a coincidence right

" The item for resetting perk points (TABULA E-RASA) can now be bought at a reduced price. "

ID: gsq2hh3

Wouldn't be surprised to see a POE reference but they could also be pulling from the same source.

That's one hell of a list. Been waiting on this patch before continuing the game, even if I encountered few issues. Because it was said to be meaty.

It'll be interesting to see how Radeon cards perform, and if there's plans for RT on consoles.

ID: gspr2gi

Same. I upgraded from a 2060 super and I love RT in cyberpunk. I do mixed settings at 1440p. Stopped playing when I got my 6700XT. I need a little RT. Even if I can get 50 fps.

ID: gsptv98

Don't tell anybody, but I've been playing it at as close to a locked 30 FPS as I can get, just to see it with all the bells and whistles. RT can have such a transformative effect on scenes in this game.

15FPS mode enabled on amd cards :))

ID: gsoajts

Some amd cards*

ID: gsoby7w

Yes, the few cards that were purchased in the two weeks between the 6800XT launch and The Great GPU Disappearance

ID: gsobjt8

Yeah, cause rest of them will have 1fps mode enabled.

7 : Anonymous2021/03/29 12:46 ID: gsojviv

Even if ultrawide ultra + Ray tracing will run at max 10 FPS. It will be perfectly fine for the photomode. Or should i say the wallpaper generaror.

8 : Anonymous2021/03/29 11:11 ID: gsobp4l

I'm super excited for this, but setting expectations accordingly. It's going to kill framerates.

That said, I played at around 80fps at 4K with FidelityFX CAS maxed, so hopefully 60fps will be achievable. Hopefully.

Edit: RT on Psycho barely looks better than no RT at all. Drops me from ~70fps at 1440p to ~20fps. At 4K with FidelityFX CAS down at 50%, it drops me from ~80fps to ~30fps.

ID: gsoegzl

I'm not getting 60FPS with Raytracing Ultra and DLSS Quality at 4K on my RTX 3090... Just so you can prepare for the immense performance drop once activating Raytracing.

Honesty, game doesn't look much worse in 1440p compared to 4K

ID: gsohfco


I’m going to have to experiment a bit. The game still looked beautiful for me at 1440p and had great performance on max settings, but FidelityFX CAS looked terrible at that resolution. FXSR needs to arrive ASAP.

ID: gsomrzt

RT ultra is where the issue is. It's been explained time and time again that the settings need to be babied and mixed for the best visual/performance point. Lots of trial and error.

ID: gsochum

I can confirm, 6 FPS will be achievable

9 : Anonymous2021/03/29 10:49 ID: gsoa5es

I might give it a try, but I don't think, it will be much fun at estimated 25-40 FPS (TR3960X, 6900XT watercooled). AMD should hurry up with FXSR.

10 : Anonymous2021/03/29 11:05 ID: gsob7qy

ray tracing without any kind of equivalent to DLSS is pretty much a no-go

This is the longest patch notes I have ever seen. Just got the game last week. Hopefully it's ready to play now.

BTW sometimes buying keys can be cheaper than buying from a vendor... I think the game was 24$.

BTW sometimes buying keys can be cheaper than buying from a vendor... I think the game was 24$.

That's because they are grey market keys, either from lower income areas where the game is cheaper or they're keys bought with stolen credit cards and such.

ID: gsocgmd

Most of the time it is a combination of both.

ID: gsojrka

Depends entirely on where you get them from.

GreenManGaming, for instance, usually has cheaper keys (still above $24, though) but they just get them direct from the Publishe


ID: gso7fic

Is this the patch that was massively delayed due to the hack? Makes sense if that's the case.

ID: gso7gx4


ID: gso8gav

If you only saw the full Russian patch notes for Stalker clear Sky when it came out ... Or the community patch notes. Those in particular are gigantic. War and Peace levels of memery. I knew it was broken but God Damn...

ID: gso98xt

My biggest issue was with the (lack of) AI, in particular how the vehicles (didn't) work properly.

Anyone know if they have fixed those two issues?

ID: gsobxun

There's no vehicle AI, that's not something you can fix in a simple patch. They'd have to design a whole new system and that takes a long time. Maybe next year?

ID: gsoz1s5

Hopefully it's ready to play now.

I played it after release and had no real issues. By "no real issues" I mean that it ran perfectly fine compared to something like Fallout. There was so much negativity after release and people got upset by something like the stupid AI from the locals. But they ignored the main story and most of the late side quests, which I really enjoyed.

I put something like 100 hours into the game and played through the different endings. For the 60 Bucks it was a good game. To make it iconic it needs something like GTA V multiplayer.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/29 11:55 ID: gsof6q5

Ah yes, time to run it at 4k, ultra, rtx with my iGPU.

13 : Anonymous2021/03/29 10:35 ID: gso9829

Oh wow. Finally.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/29 11:03 ID: gsob4w3

Good luck guys. With my 3080 I'm only just getting 60fps at 4k with balanced dlss. So effectively ray tracing at 1080p...

Let's hope this patch also brings some performance increases

The one I’m looking for isn’t there.

“V will no longer randomly stand up on The seat of their motorcycle while driving with no trousers on exposing their genitalia “

ID: gspaa6r

That’s not a bug.

16 : Anonymous2021/03/29 16:07 ID: gsp8344

1.2 patch is now available on Steam. 32.55GB

17 : Anonymous2021/03/29 20:05 ID: gsq3g84

5950X and a 6900XT with WQHD on Max Settings, and i enabled Ray Tracing to the Max, got 30 FPS 😀

18 : Anonymous2021/03/29 15:36 ID: gsp401h

So going from 45fps to 25fps with RT turned on? yaaaaay!

19 : Anonymous2021/03/29 19:29 ID: gspypv7

Any benchmarks???

20 : Anonymous2021/03/30 00:02 ID: gsqw25u

Because your performance should be tanked equally, regardless of your brand of GPU

21 : Anonymous2021/03/29 10:42 ID: gso9nmp

I'm looking forward to testing it, but I don't think my 6700xt gonna like it...

Edit: I get c. 25 fps at 1440p, tested at 1080p it's c.37, so pretty trash, but I didn't expect anything else...

ID: gsoak92

I'm gonna run this in my 5700XT! ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

ID: gsoc3bf

Anybody remember the good old times *checks watch* six months ago, when the 5700XT was the absolute top of the line, the best and most expensive GPU you could get from AMD?

22 : Anonymous2021/03/29 10:56 ID: gsoalp3

My RX 5500 XT4GB: Don't you even dare try it!
