“Cyberpunk 2077 uses the industry-standard DirectX Ray Tracing API. It will work on any DXR-compatible GPU,” Burke said. “Nothing related to Cyberpunk 2077 ray tracing is proprietary to NVIDIA.”
Cyberpunk 2077 – PC Ray-Tracing Screenshots
This puts the rumours to bed that only Nvidia card owners would be able to experience Ray Tracing in Cyberpunk 2077. If you own a DirectX Raytracing-compatible GPU, regardless of its make, you’ll be able to enjoy the shiny stuff in CD Projekt Red’s next big game – although we know that some of the ray tracing effects will be exclusive to PC as a whole when the game launches.
In other Cyberpunk 2077 news, CD Projekt Red’s stock recently dropped by 25% in two months. Dark Horse Direct also debuted an exclusive art print in October showing the pop star Lizzy Wizzy, who is played by the artist Grimes in-game.
Cyberpunk 2077 launches on December 10, 2020, for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Google Stadia.
