Cyberpunk 2077 – Best Graphic Settings for PC

Last Updated on December 9, 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 is a title that needs no introduction, everyone in the gaming world knows about this title from CD Projekt Red. The main reason why everyone has high hopes from this game is the game is built by the same studios behind the Witcher 3. The game has been in the works since 2012, there have been numerous delays, the release date has been pushed a bunch of times already. However, the day has come, the game is finally released.

The game has a lot of settings which can be confusing for players at first, that’s the reason why we’ve created this guide. The settings will be tested on high-end and low-end machines. Since the list of computers and hardware around is so diverse, it’s pretty much impossible for us to post the right settings for everyone. However, you can ask us for the right settings for your computer by posting a comment using the comment section at the end of this article.
