Cyberpunk 2077 new feature

New Cyberpunk 2077 Update adds NVIDIA DLSS 3 & Reflex support

CD Projekt RED has just released a new update for the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077 that adds support for NVIDIA DLSS 3 and Reflex. However, this patch does not introduce the new Overdrive Ray Tracing effects that CDPR promised a while back.

As we claimed back in October 2022, DLSS 3 works wonderfully in Cyberpunk 2077. Contrary to some other games, Cyberpunk 2077 does not suffer from major input latency issues. As such, NVIDIA RTX40 owners will be able to enjoy the game at higher framerates.

It will be interesting to see when CDPR will release the Overdrive Ray Tracing Update. For what it’s worth, there is currently no ETA on when it will come out.

Here are the key features of the Ray Tracing Overdrive Mode for Cyberpunk 2077.

  • NVIDIA RTX Direct Illumination (RTXDI) gives each neon sign, street lamp, car headlight, LED billboard and TV accurate ray-traced lighting and shadows, bathing objects, walls, passing cars and pedestrians in accurate colored lighting
  • Ray-traced indirect lighting and reflections now bounce multiple times, compared to the previous solution’s single bounce. The result is even more accurate, realistic and immersive global illumination, reflections, and self-reflections
  • Ray-traced reflections are now rendered at full resolution, further improving their quality
  • Improved, more physically-based lighting removes the need for any other occlusion techniques

Lastly, and speaking of Cyberpunk 2077, we also suggest taking a look at the following mods. These mods improve the textures of body skinswalls, roads, and vegetation, as well as all weaponsplayer facesall posters and signs. There are also an HD Texture Pack that improves NPCs faces, hair & beards, as well as various packs for some of the main characters.
