Which, being the most powerful graphics card ever created by humans, is valued at $3,999.00. Of course being a demonstration of a game that still has many months of optimisation left no doubt the developers at CD Projekt RED
wanted to showcase the game at its absolute best. And with the news that Cyberpunk 2077 will support
raytracing and other high-end RTX features, having a TITAN RTX
on hand makes sense.
Which we now have more details on. According to reports Cyberpunk 2077's raytracing will focus on "ray traced ambient occlusion and diffused illumination". With the latter referring to the way the light from one object reflects or affects another - as seen in the following screenshot.
By all accounts, including our own (stay tuned for a new preview detailing the 2019 demo) it all ran smoothly. Which you'd hope would be the case based on the following specs.
