    Yeah it's not the sort of game that needs 100fps, but currently for me the low fps is heavily impacting enjoyment and playability. Will have to see what the new drivers are like which just launched, and I probably need to go back to my 16:9 monitor while waiting for my new card to arrive.

    New patch might've given 3-4 fps at best hard to tell, kept the ultrawide monitor and just turned on dynamic scaling with a 60 fps target. So in the more gpu heavy areas things get a bit blurry rather than the game chugging frames. Better than before, but my RX6800 can't come soon enough.

    I went from a 1080 to a 3080 and the difference was like night and day. I largely have no frame loss issues

    I have a GTX 1080 and I'm able to get around 45 fps or so average at 1440p on medium for Cyberpunk, with dips to around 30. Generally I'd be unhappy with a medium preset however the difference between Ultra and medium didn't seem that big and not enough for me to justify rushing out to upgrade just yet.

    I would suggest people with 1070/1080/1080ti who dont want to fork out big $ for latest stuff look out for used 2070/2080/2080S (and even ti if budget permits) as CP2077 even though these are only generational improves of say 25% or whatever, the DLSS support on top is like another 30% and DLSS in CP2077 although isnt perfect is damn close and hard to tell and the boost in performance is awesome.

    TLDR: GTX1080ti to 2080 might only be 5% faster in rasterisation, but CP2077 will be a good 30%+ faster thanks to DLSS.

    Toms has re-released their benchmarks. GTX1080 on MEDIUM, averages 41fps on a standard 1440p:

    What's going on with 3080 vs 3090?

    IT's a good question. on other resolutions and settings, a 3080 outperforms a 3090 too.

    I would expect that there was some thermal throttling, and it's mostly the difference between the card's curves, heat sinks, etc.

    Edit: Realised I haven't quoted the source. Example of 3080 being faster first, then link at bottom:

    Yeah, and the 6800xt outperforms the 6900xt. Sorry, that's the one I meant to draw attention to.

    This is quite true. My laptop with a stock 2060 Q Max is handily beating my watercooled and overclocked desktop 1080Ti thanks to DLSS. Both are using 8 core Ryzen CPUs with similar performance.

    true, but I got the shits when fps drops below 70fps it's very noticeable, in most areas I get around 100 frames and it feels much better (then again I'm high-refresh positive).

    You mean the card that isn't out yet beats a 3 gen old card? No wai

    Did you run the Digital Foundry settings? I did and added maybe 10fps in the FPS dip areas.

    I use motion blur in this game so the 60fps dips are less intense. I am also high-refresh positive, its an expensive frustrating disease VRR does help make dips less annoying.

    Yeah, pretty much copied all the settings, ray-tracking off. DLSS on Quality, 1440p

    Runs around 100fps outside the city and some parts, but in the city, dense areas it drop and even dips below 70fps.

    this is with 8700K and 2080Ti both at stock atm

    I've just come from a 1080 about a couple months ago now after changing to the 3080, and the 1080 at the time was a competent and zippy card. Not being a huge gamer any more meant I could get away with a older card on reasonable in-game settings. Gaming was fine, but admittedly I never got to trying Cyberpunk on it. But it was a number of years old and you start missing in-game features when the card gets too old. So it was time to move on.
