Best Ray Tracing - Digital Foundry's Cyberpunk 2077 PC Breakdown

Yesterday, Digital Foundry specialists published a full review of Cyberpunk 2077 with an analysis of the PC version. The video is dedicated to the technological part of the game, which is performed at the highest level.

PC

  • Cyberpunk 2077  can be compared to Crysis, which at one time was ahead of the capabilities of home PCs and gave a significant leap in graphics quality
  • The basic consoles of the outgoing generation are no longer able to cope with the game at least at the minimum acceptable level
  • The game world blooms after turning on ray tracing – there is global illumination, ambient lighting, as well as a full-fledged ambient occlusion shading model

  • With ray tracing, the sky is like a giant light source that, thanks to diffuse illumination, accurately conveys color information to a wide variety of materials and surfaces
  • If you enable ray tracing of the Psycho level, then in  Cyberpunk 2077  there is a full-fledged global illumination that simulates particle scattering
  • The developers also use volumetric light and volumetric smoke and fog effects.

After all, this is a next generation game, and there is no doubt that for the best experience you need a next generation console or PC. What we’ve seen on PS4 and Xbox One suggests that these devices are struggling due to a weak CPU and slow HDD.

  • Environment loading is almost invisible on PC
  • The game uses several types of shadows at once: cascading maps, ray tracing and screen-space
  • There is no particular breakthrough in character animation, but everything is done at the highest level
  • Experts praise CDPR for full-fledged first-person body animation

PS4 and PS4 Pro

  • On the base PS4, the game runs in a dynamic 900p, with frequent drawdowns up to 720p
  • The developers had to reduce all the graphical features of the game, including the number of people on the streets
  • Indoors, the game produces 20-25 fps, outside four walls – 15-20 frames per second
  • The game does not have time to load textures, objects appear out of thin air, and freezes occur when moving

  • Slightly better on PS4 Pro – the game runs in dynamic 1188p with drops to 972p
  • Frame rate drops to 18 fps are also present here
  • The main issues are related to the processor limitations of both systems
  • Graphically between the two versions, apart from the resolution, full parity

Cyberpunk 2077 was released on the night of December 9-10. Critics and gamers alike welcomed the new RPG from studio CD Projekt RED, but the owners of the previous generation of consoles hardly felt the joy .
