Cyberpunk 2077 will get Ray Tracing Overdrive Mode and DLSS 3

CD Projekt Red and Nvidia are happy to announce that a new update for Cyberpunk 2077 will introduce better visuals thanks to new support for Ray Tracing mode called Overdrive. This will allow Night City residents to treat their eyes with beauty and realism.

Aside from this, the game will also receive DLSS 3, powered by the latest RTX 40 series GPUs. Paired with the Ray Tracing Overdrive Mode it will allow high-resolution gamers to enjoy playing at higher frames. As highlighted by Nvidia, these GPUs are beyond fast and give gamers the best and highest even gen-to-gen frame rate boost.

NVIDIA DLSS 3 with Optical Multi Frame Generation multiplies performance on GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards by using AI to generate more frames. DLSS 3 analyzes sequential frames and motion data from the new Optical Flow Accelerator in GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs to create additional high quality frames. NVIDIA DLSS 3 also includes NVIDIA Reflex, so each of these titles will be even more responsive for all GeForce RTX gamers.

  • 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

Supporting the new Ray Tracing: Overdrive Mode are several new NVIDIA technologies that greatly accelerate and improve the quality of advanced ray tracing workloads, for even faster performance when playing on GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards.

Below you can find the first look at Cyberpunk 2077’s upcoming NVIDIA DLSS 3 and Ray Tracing Overdrive technology.

Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world, action-adventure RPG set in the dark future of Night City – a dangerous megalopolis obsessed with power, glamor, and ceaseless body modification.
