Cyberpunk 2077 gets huge FPS boost, no graphics card needed

Cyberpunk 2077 gets huge FPS boost, no graphics card needed

With the new AMD Ryzen 7 8700G, you can hit 63fps in Cyberpunk 2077 without the need for a separate graphics card.

If you’re looking to witness some tech wizardry, you’ve come to the right place. It turns out Cyberpunk 2077 can hit an impressive 63fps on PC without the need for a separate graphics card. It sounds like magic but it’s true.

Cyberpunk 2077 had an incredible 2023. Between Update 2.0 (and the surprise subsequent Update 2.1) and the release of the Phantom Liberty expansion, CD Projekt RED’s once-doomed game finally completed its redemption arc, fulfilling the vision once promised to us. In fact, fans even went as far as saying that had Cyberpunk 2077 released in its current state, it would have easily won Game of the Year. With Phantom Liberty now out in the world, CDPR are shifting their efforts over to the next The Witcher instalment but a Cyberpunk 2077 sequel, Project Orion, is planned. In the meantime though, you may want to entertain yourself with this nifty technical upgrade.

Take a look at Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty in action below.

As reported by PCGamesN, AMD has showcased its new Ryzen 8000-series APU line-up, which includes integrated RDNA 3 graphics. As such, the company claims that you can play CDPR’s Cyberpunk 2077 using their new products, reaching an impressive 63fps without the need for a separate graphics card.

So let’s dive into the AMD Ryzen 7 8700G. While we could be here all day talking specs, it’s the integrated GPU that I want to draw your attention too. With an integrated Radeon 780M GPU, the Ryzen 7 8700G includes 12 RDNA 3 compute units, providing you with 768 stream processors and 12 raytracing cores - granting you the possibility of playing the latest and greatest in gaming without a separate graphics card.

AMD confirmed that they’d reached 63fps in Cyberpunk 2077 at 1080p. They also reached 68fps in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and a very impressive 89fps in Hitman 3. If you’re looking to switch up your PC kit, this might be a little square of magic that you want to keep an eye on.
