Rumour: Cyberpunk 2077 will support both real-time ray tracing and NVIDIA’s Hairworks [UPDATE: Fake]

It appears that CD Projekt RED’s new role-playing game, Cyberpunk 2077, will support real-time ray tracing tech as well as NVIDIA’s Hairworks tech. This information comes from a leaked video which showcases the in-game graphics menu of Cyberpunk 2077.

We do know that CD Projekt RED was showcasing Cyberpunk 2077 running on an NVIDIA GTX1080Ti at 1080p and with 30fps. As such, we don’t know whether an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti will be able to handle this game with RTX, especially since the game will not be coming out anytime soon.

Still, it’s pretty cool witnessing another highly anticipated triple-A game game support real-time ray tracing. Moreover, and while we can’t see the remaining options, the Cyberpunk 2077 demo was most likely running with a mix of Ultra and High settings, and with HairWorks enabled.

Both NVIDIA and CD Projekt RED have not officially announced yet Cyberpunk 2077 supporting the Hairworks or the real-time ray tracing (RTX) effects. However, it’s pretty clear from this leaked image that the game will indeed support them. Still, and since the companies have not announced anything yet, we are marking this as a rumour (so take it with a grain of salt)!
