Guide for Cyberpunk 2077 – Performance Optimization Guide [GTX 1070 Ti]
Before we get started
*Disclaimer* These settings may already be in a guide; I am not entirely sure.
*Disclaimer* I have only played in the city as of right now, so performance in the more barren areas of the map would presumably be higher, but I am not certain.
I was getting around 40 – 50 FPS playing on High/Ultra before my current configuration; after configuring my settings to what I have now, I am usually between 50 – 70. I only usually dip below 50 in very intense areas of the map or during heavy battles. (Which is to be expected)
I really hope these settings help at least one person play the game at a more enjoyable frame rate.
Here is the link to a way more in-depth guide
If your rig configuration is similar to mine or exactly like mine, you can expect the performance mentioned in the next sections to be spot on or at least close.
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW ULTRA SILENT GAMING, 8GB GDDR5
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600x 3.6 GHz
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper T4 70 CFM
MEMORY: Corsair Vengeance LED 16 GB DDR4
OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Power Supply: Corsair CSM 650 w
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-AB350-GAMING 3 ATX AM4
The rest doesn’t matter.
Updating Current Drivers
You’ve probably heard this at least 1000 times, but you must have the newly released GeForce drivers installed. They are available for installation in the GeForce Experience application. There is a guide included below if you are new to installing drivers; it will guide you through the entire process from start to finish.

My In-game settings (The part most of you are probably here for)
As stated in this section’s title, this is the section most of you are probably here for. If you plan to use my settings as a base and then tweak them to your liking, feel free to leave results in the comment section.
Some may not know a two-option performance section in the tab labeled “Gameplay” in the in-game settings menu.
The setting that we are focusing on is crowd density; I have found that setting it to low helps with highly populated areas around the map. (Main streets, clubs, stores, etc.)
I personally like having the highest quality textures, but turning this setting to medium or low would definitely provide an even bigger boost in FPS.
I would advise copying my entire basic settings subsection for the best results; multiple settings in this section are pointless to me. Still, I know for some people, settings like motion blur or chromatic aberration are actually tolerable, so adjust and tweak accordingly.
I have noticed that multiple settings within the “Advanced” subsection cause ma*sive FPS drops, so I
I would advise copying my screenshot for the best results.
This is the continued “Advanced” subsection settings list, followed by the resolution scaling section.
I have found that FidelityFX helps to stabilize FPS under certain circumstances.
Screenshots of my game while using these settings
I decided to include some screenshots of what my actual game looks like if anyone was curious; this is what you can expect to see when playing through the game with these settings.
These screenshots are completely unedited and are not color corrected in the in-game screenshot tool; I did not edit them because I felt that it might be misleading to show screenshots that have been edited in any way.
