Cyberpunk 2077 is an amazing game that keeps getting better with developer patches. The latest addition is the NVIDIA DLSS 3 package, which includes advanced technologies such as Super Resolution DLSS, Frame Generation DLSS, and NVIDIA Reflex. These hardware enhancements allow PC gamers to experience even more of the glory of Cyberpunk 2077. Better yet, the preparation for Ray Tracing Overdrive mode will increase the game’s ray tracing, creating stunning visuals.

It’s almost as if Night City is alive, as if we’re witnessing a future that’s yet to come. That’s what Cyberpunk 2077 keeps surprising us with every update. This is the best story of all!

CD PROJEKT RED is known for its dedication to offering support for its major titles such as Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for long periods of time. The studio is embracing emerging technologies, making their games more than just a cultural phenomenon. They are a playground for technology, a post that has been occupied by many acclaimed titles by gamers over the last two decades such as Crysis, Metro, and Far Cry.

Creating digital worlds is a tough challenge for computers. That’s where the gears of parallel computing called GPUs came in. A decade ago, GPUs launched a deep learning revolution that shook trillions of dollars industries around the world, still present in the latest advancements in Generative Artificial Intelligence, such as ChatGPT and Dall-E, which have become a cultural sensation in the last few months.

This is the case study of disruptive innovations identified by Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen that hide in unexpected places. DLSS brings this revolution back to gaming, using the same deep learning techniques used for everything from cutting-edge science to self-driving cars to improve the visual quality of games. CD PROJEKT RED has been leading the charge, allowing gamers to enjoy an even greater gaming experience.

NVIDIA has trained their supercomputers to be even more powerful and developed DLSS 3 to enhance the new generation of games. This technology will allow gamers to experience a new narrative of gaming.

CD PROJEKT RED decided to take advantage of DirectX Ray Tracing, a lighting technique that recreates the realistic scenario as if we were in the real world. The game uses various rendering methods to create a futuristic city with an incredible amount of detail. These techniques include shadows, reflections, diffuse lighting, and occlusion. If you turn on the “Psycho” mode in the ray traced lighting settings, you will also see Global Illuminated Ray Traced lighting, with the sun realistically reflecting around the scene.

The result of these features is a visually stunning experience that enhances the story and style of the game: sprawling cities with shadows that define the depth, neon-lit neighborhoods and windows, mirrors, and puddles that shimmer as they reflect light accurately.

Playing Cyberpunk 2077 on a PC with GeForce RTX is a unique experience, thanks to the use of NVIDIA DLSS 3 and improved performance. This technology allows gamers to experience realistically what engineers at NASA and Lawrence Livermore Labs use to simulate.

Experience the power and potential of this game! Fire up your PC, grab the latest patch for Cyberpunk 2077 and a GeForce RTX Series GPU and enjoy this new narrative.
