Today we’re taking a quick look at the new Cyberpunk 2077 1.1 patch to see if the performance has changed when running the game with the “minimum system requirements”. While the game ran on launch day with these specs it was a far from flawless experience, so has this new patch improved things?

  1. There is a mod for Cyberpunk which allows you to disable some hidden graphics setting. I disabled Fog and Async and gained 5-6 fps!!! Now I'm getting 35 fps on average instead of 29-30.

  2. My gtx 1060 6gb oc, with 16gb ram 3000mhz, Ryzen 5 2600, and an nvme drive only get you 10 more fps than this system on the same settings. Honestly, my system should be labeled as "minimum requirements".

  3. My RX570 8gb was running it at 32-35 FPS high setting. 1080, overclocked to 1450mhz,
    After the update, and GPU update (happened same time), My OC causes a crash, only runs on auto overclock 1314 MHz, and i get 27-29 FPS, With alot more screen tearing. I'm kinda sad.

  4. For me this patch had a negative impact on my performance. I've tested both windows 7 and 10 using a 4790K+1070 and 1.1 dropped ~20fps for both. Windows 7 has a funny thing going on with the dx12 wrapper where you also get -20fps that you would get in win10 (at least for me it did), so if I had ~40+fps in windows 7 I would be getting around 60'ish in windows10 with this setup on patch 1.06. Now when I load certain saves where I know what the fps is like, I am getting around 15-25 fps in win7 with 1.1, and also the same kind of drops with win10 (I have fresh OS installs to test on too). I've also tested on different nvidia drivers to no avail. I had to go back to 1.06 to gain my fps back. Am looking forward to some performance fixes that will help my rig but I'm happy a lot of people have little to no problems with theirs. I hope this game gets all the fixing and content it needs, but for now it's just a waiting game between patches hehehe.

  5. would be interesting to see what difference an i7 3770 would make, keeping all other variables the same.

    thanks for the content, im a high spec gamer and I really enjoy the budget and min-spec videos you make.

  6. I've been playing this game on my Ryzen 5 2400G, with a CRT monitor set to 1024×768 88Hz. And I've been enjoying it quite frankly.

    Getting stable 45 Frames per second, over 150 hours of play time.

    I can share the detailed configuration I use. If you guys are curious.

  7. Not too bad actually — with dynamic resolution scaling enabled, one could perhaps use half-refresh v-sync in conjunction with a good fps limiter for a console-like 30 fps experience I'd imagine.

  8. G'day Random,
    Thanks for testing the difference on the 'Minimum Spec PC' as the newer updates are released,
    I'm sure it will help those with lower end hardware know when the game plays well enough with a consistent FPS, or if the update may cause problems & it's better to miss like they do sometimes

  9. The "Minimum Requirements" PC has almost the same FPS as my PC – Intel Core i7 6700k, GTX 980, 32GB 2666Mhz RAM [DDR4], 970 Evo SSD.
    What am I doing wrong? I have the latest drivers and lowest settings and only get ~50FPS
