NVIDIA has released a set of benchmarks that provide further insight into how well the GeForce RTX 40 Series can handle Cyberpunk 2077’s new Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode at 4K (3840×2160) max settings. According to the benchmarks, the flagship GeForce RTX 4090 can reach 103.5 FPS in the game with DLSS 3 enabled, while the GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070 Ti can reach 74.2 and 59.1 FPS with DLSS 3 enabled, respectively. DLSS 3 appears to be a must, as GeForce RTX 40 Series users may see frame rates as low as 11.6 FPS with the suite of performance-enhancing technologies disabled. Cyberpunk 2077’s Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode is available to try beginning today as part of a technology preview.
From an NVIDIA GeForce article:
The technology preview for Cyberpunk 2077’s Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode is a sneak peek into the future of full ray tracing, and we are working with CD PROJEKT RED on further full ray tracing enhancements, bug fixes, and performance optimizations. Check out our full ray tracing explainer video with CD PROJEKT RED.
Reflections, shadows, ambient occlusion, and much more are all improved, giving you a glimpse into the future of video game graphics. To make this possible, Cyberpunk 2077 uses NVIDIA DLSS 3 to multiply performance. With DLSS 3 activated, 4K performance on a GeForce RTX 4090 will be boosted by 4.6X to 103 FPS, and on a GeForce RTX 4080, performance leaps by 5X to 74 FPS.
