Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 - PC Tech Review - DLSS 3.5 Ray Reconstruction Deep Dive

Digital Foundry - The new 2.0 edition of Cyberpunk 2077 features the latest and most advanced DLSS ray reconstruction technology - but what is it and how does it work? Alex explains what denoising is, why we need it, and the tremendous image quality benefits it delivers. At the same time this is what you might call a '1.0' version, and there are clearly improvements it requires. Beyond that, we take a look at the 2.0 game itself, including how heavy it is on the CPU compared to the prior version. 26 minutes of Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 content? Let's do this.

This is just witchcraft, Nvidia have some sort of pact with a coven.

Looking forward to trying this out.

Great. I’ll wait until it’s as cheap as possible then will finally get it

Hopefully they’ve learned their lesson for the next game

Prepare for the long wait then. They have this thing where during any sale the base game lowers to the price it should be at now considering the game's around 3 years old now. Then they boost the price back up after the sale. They have been doing this tactic for quite some time. I assume the same will happen with this edition too. It seems they never go below a certain price. Like ever!

£24.99 price of base game now in the sale on PC.

Mr_cheese5d ago

Legally I think a price has to be set for 6 weeks before they can drop it to a sale price.

So for example, if the game is £20 and the sale price is £20. Somewhere in between, it has to be £25 for 6 weeks.

FYI - The game on Playstation has a one time use code for the DLC. Xbox has it on the disk. A little frustrating as a PS5 owner because I rent and borrow physical media. I also support my loca library with their games, which this will hurt.

-Foxtrot5d ago

Wait. What?

The Xbox version is the one with it on the disc? What the actual f***

If the Xbox can fit it on one disc I think the PS5 can aswell

That’s crazy

CobraKai5d ago

That really sucks. Granted my physical copy is the ps4 version, but i do like owning the next gen version. I guess i’ll get the Xbox one this time.

I have it digitally on my One X (came with the CP themed system) and I have the steelbook edition on XB as well. I will probably get this also on Series X as that one has all the content on the disc. Unless something changes and they are able to get Sony to allow them to put it on disc without having to make a new SKU. Then Id get it on the 5.

I'll buy that. Been waiting for this

Jingsing6d ago (Edited 6d ago )

For those who haven't played Cyberpunk 2077. Yes, they have fixed a lot of bugs but ultimately the fundamental mechanics and underlying technology and gameplay is still very dated for 2023 standards. It has a lot of lighting and ray tracing which for whatever reason means a good game to some reviewers but for me it is still a polished turd with a mediocre story/campaign and side missions. I know there is a desperate need for some kind of Blade Runner game in the gaming community but keep your expectations in check as this ain't it.

nitroxhotshot6d ago

Coor what a load of nonsense. The story is fantastic and the game mechanics work very very well. It is a great game (now)

DankSinatra5d ago

Honestly the story is one of the best parts, far from mediocre.

lellkay5d ago

I'm finally playing it for the first time and the story is far from Medicore in my eyes! i'm really enjoying it!

KwietStorm_BLM5d ago

The story and narrative are actually really well done, and for the most part the game runs just as good today. Don't know where you coming from.

It's a shame the PS5 version comes with a code instead of being on disc... took a day 1 buy and made it buy cheap or I may just not buy at all

shinoff21835d ago

Pretty much. I hadn't realized at my first comment dlc isn't on disc. It kinda takes away the reason I wanted it physically. Fallout 4 all over again.

Profchaos5d ago

Great edition for preservationist entire game in its current state with DLC if this launched way back it would have been sweeping goty awards

Profchaos5d ago

Edit I take that back it's a physical box and a code

Vits5d ago

That seems to be the theme of these games. I'm still sort of mad about the whole FFVII Remake Intergrade. Having the DLC as a code is annoying enough, but making it so that people who buy it second-hand cannot get the DLC from the PSN is just evil.

autobotdan5d ago

Only for Playstation gamers. Xbox gamers get it all on the disc
