CD Project RED’s Community Lead, Marcin Momot, has confirmed that the E3 2018 behind-closed-doors demo of Cyberpunk 2077 was running at 1080p and not in 4K. Despite earlier reports suggesting that the demo was running in 4K, Momot stated that CD Projekt RED showed the demo running in 1080p.
Although Momot did not comment on the framerate, reports suggest that it was locked at 30fps (with some deeps here and there).
As we’ve already stated, CD Projekt RED used an Intel i7-8700K @ 3.70Ghz with 2X16GB 3000Mhz RAM and an NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX1080Ti in order to showcase the game’s E3 2018 demo.
Now I’m pretty sure that most of you will be worried about this performance, however we should remind you that the game is in a pre-alpha state. As such, the game will receive various performance optimizations once it enters its post-beta and gets closer to its final build.
The fact that the game was also running with 30fps in 1080p on a single GTX1080Ti is perhaps one of the reasons CD Projekt RED decided to only show the demo behind closed doors.
CD Projekt RED will be preset at Gamescom 2018 so let’s hope that it will show a gameplay video of Cyberpunk 2077 to the public!
