Cyberpunk 2077 PC Performance, Ray Tracing & DLSS Benchmarked

Cyberpunk 2077 landed yesterday and today we take a look at how the PC version performs. We tested the latest Nvidia Ampere and AMD RDNA 2 GPUs, while also focusing on the various ray traced effects found within the game. Nvidia’s DLSS upscaling technology is present too, so we see how it compares to native resolution and what sort of performance boost you can expect when using it.
