Cyberpunk 2077 RTX trailer shows off the latest in puddle reflection technology



A new teaser video from Nvidia, embedded above, shows off what Cyberpunk 2077 will look like with one of the GeForce RTX 30-series video cards announced today. The RTX 3070 was a bit of a surprise: It’ll be $499 when it launches in October, and Nvidia says it’s faster than a $1,200 RTX 2080 Ti. Not bad. (Unless you recently bought an RTX 2080 Ti, in which case we’re sorry.)

So far, the best showcase of Nvidia’s ray tracing tech I’ve seen is Control, which offers an ideal environment for light simulation: a mid-century office building stuffed with metal, glass, and shiny floors. Getting a great framerate with RTX on and a current 20-series card can be a struggle, though. At 1440p with my RTX 2070 Super, I get around 30 fps in Control with ray tracing set to high. Nvidia’s DLSS technology, which improves performance by rendering scenes at a lower resolution and then upscaling them with ‘deep learning’ AI, bumps me up to 50 or 60 fps and still looks pretty good. (I know ‘deep learning’ and ‘AI’ can be annoying buzzwords, but DLSS really does dramatically improve performance without too much of a visual hit.)
