Cyberpunk 2077 in 4K is pushing the NVIDIA RTX 3090 to its limits

Cyberpunk 2077 is an undoubtedly pretty game. It doesn't matter if it's your kind of game or not, you have to admit that it looks good.

It's the kind of thing that has always looked a little bit better than seems realistic. It's one of the reasons a lot of people kind of expected it to be next-gen only.

Thankfully it doesn't require the highest-end PC to run normally, but it turns out that if you want the settings all maxed out, then even the latest tech might not be enough.

Hell, even the RTX 3090 is struggling.

Sorry, what?

Yup. We're sorry to be the bearers of bad news, but it turns out that even the mighty titan that is the RTX 3090 can't run Cyberpunk 2077 on max settings and still hit 60 frames per second.

It was reported on by WccfTech. So, the GPU can still run it, so you're not going to be missing out too much, but it's hard not to be impressed by the fact that the game demands that much from your PC.

Of course, it could partly be an issue of optimisation, so it's likely that this'll change in the future.
