Nvidia chose the RTX 2080Ti Graphics card and gave it a Cyberpunk 2077 makeover. Fans speculated that the special edition Graphics card would be for the RTX 2070 or RTX 2070 Super cards, but Nvidia went with RTX 2080Ti. The cards have a yellow accent with a Cyberpunk 2077 signature on the backplate. It aesthetically pleases the owner and the onlookers alike.
The RTX 2080Ti Cyberpunk Edition performs equally with the stock RTX 2080Ti. Nothing has changed in the original hardware; the limited edition adds an aesthetic flair to the graphics card and nothing else. The Graphics card will have a massive price tag on it, as it’s a high-end RTX 2080 Ti card, and even if someone is willing to sell the graphics card, it won’t come cheap or equal to the MSRP of 2080Ti Graphics card.
Nvidia is giving away 77 of those limited edition cards to the lucky followers as a part of the #RTXon sweepstake competition. They will not be selling the graphics card and the remaining cards will be auctioned for charity. All the money earned through the auction will be donated to a charity foundation for a good cause.
Cyberpunk 2077 releases on April 16, 2020. The game is quite heavy and might need a high-end setup to run smoothly. The minimum system requirement asks for an Intel Core i7 – 8700K sounding like a massive RPG title plus CD Projekt RED stated that it would use the Ray-Tracing technology in-game. CD Projekt RED is a game developer and the creator of the hit franchise, The Witcher.
