The GeForce RTX 4060
is out this week, and NVIDIA let us check out the new mainstream GPU early to see what DLSS 3 brings to Cyberpunk 2077
and the still-gorgeous Night City with ray-tracing set to 'Ultra.' Benchmarking it against the previous-gen GeForce RTX 3060 and the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, the results are impressive.
This is great news for those looking to upgrade their PC or create a new budget build and plat the highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty expansion later this year. DLSS 3 and Frame Generation is a game changer.
On PC, Cyberpunk 2077 has always impressed - as long as you had the hardware to take advantage of the impressive real-time ray-tracing effects in the game. From reflections to shadows to emissive lights, it’s still one of today's most visually remarkable (and demanding) PC games. At the time of its launch back in 2020, if you wanted to enjoy the ray-traced beauty of Night City, you needed a capable GeForce RTX GPU alongside the magic of NVIDIA’s AI-based DLSS Super Resolution technology.
Our Full GeForce RTX 4060 and Cyberpunk 2077 Performance Preview
What makes the RT in Cyberpunk 2077 still one of the most impressive showcases for what the technology can bring to games is the fact that on its highest settings, beyond what even the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X can deliver, you’ve got a seamless and cinematic futuristic city to explore with no actual loading screens or transitional speed bumps to take you out of the action. You can go from a neon-lit nightclub out into a dark alleyway and then through some bustling rain-soaked streets in a matter of moments, and with ray tracing, it all takes on a filmic Blade Runner-like quality.
