These specs are frankly, much lower than we were expecting at the lower end of the scale, and it would appear that CDPR has managed to pull off some extreme optimization based on the visuals that we are seeing on various livestreams and videos of Cyberpunk 2077.

While some folks who are using very old builds might need to pop for an upgrade, for the most part, the minimum specs fall nicely in line with the average user build on Steam, based on the Steam Hardware survey.

It’s definitely a good day for for wannabe street samurai everywhere, as Night City will be open for business soon, and it would seem that everyone is invited.
