NVIDIA has posted nearly four dozen screenshots captured by digital artists and virtual photographers that demonstrate what Cyberpunk 2077 can look like with Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode enabled. Released on April 11 in the form of a technology preview, Cyberpunk 2077’s Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode is a demanding graphics option that introduces path tracing into the game, an even more advanced (read: full) implementation of ray tracing that is said to enable scenes that are indistinguishable from reality. NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards, which include support for DLSS 3, are recommended for those who want to try out Cyberpunk 2077’s Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode in higher frame rates.
From an NVIDIA GeForce post:
In addition to the droves of players who have jumped back in to try the new mode and shared their incredible photos online, advanced screenshotting pros, often referred to as Digital Artists or Virtual Photographers, dive in and showcase a game’s artistic and creative brilliance. For the release of the technology preview of Cyberpunk 2077’s Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode, hundreds have taken to the streets of Night City to capture breathtaking scenes demonstrating the jaw-dropping difference full ray tracing makes.
