    I gotta say the complaints about frame rate drops while travelling around the open world surprises me, it’s not something I’ve encountered across two different PC’s, one being an X58 system running a Core i7 980X @4.3GHz with a 2080Ti that I use on my TV at 4K (with dynamic res scaling @80%) and my main system running an i9 7940X @4.6GHz with two 2080Ti’s at 3440x1440 both installed on SSD’s.

    I’m enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would, combat is great, AI is pretty dumb and it can be lacking in the visuals department at times but overall I don’t have any huge issues with how it looks or runs.

    Just wish it was longer.

    yea that 1000 plus gfx card might be why :p you do not see dips.

    us mortals do but like i said its typically only when driving around.

    I was referring to the digital foundry analysis with regards to the frame rate dips while driving around, he’s also getting using the 2080Ti which is what surprised me.

    Hopefully they can smooth those out on lower end cards although it’s probably more CPU related, surprised with how well my 9 year old 980X is still doing with modern games.

    Yeah, I have a friend with a 670, and he's said he's uninstalled the game until he can afford to upgrade.
    That, no matter the settings he uses... the game is unplayable.

    And I am really sorry that you have been cheated as my gtx 1080 kicks your rtx 2080 ass ;)
    Once more I got it clear how the reviewers do receive their paychecks to fill the web with fraudulent information.
    As a note I am using the 399.24 drivers.
    Stay well Evileh.
    P.S. Really sorry you throw away your money.
    P.P.S. I ve also uploaded my video on youtube, who knows maybe it can open people eyes

    I should have sought out Dr.Kvasir earlier so that I get the skills for finding caches and data pads. Looking for these things is time consuming and sometimes frustrating.

    I was going to buy this game when announced, I thought it would be cool - then I saw people play it on Twitch.

    One of the people who bought it, started on Tuesday and had finished it by Wednesday. I knew then, this was a 'bargain bin' game probably much like the original is, and something I will never consider to be worthy of the high-end marketed retail pricing it was awarded with.

    The game clearly has artificially tried to extend the game life through bandit camps, which is a real shame as the actual gun mechanics look superb, but at the cost of the needless ancillary mission mechanics.

    Yet another ******* disappointment this year for gaming.

    If Cyberpunk ends up being a disappointment, I might just have to throw my rig out the window and take up a new hobby, like flower arranging or stamp collecting.

    Is anyone using the RTSS v7.2.2 (MSI Afterburner v4.6.2 Beta 1) overlay okay with this game because it refuses to show for me?

    I checked DOOM 2016 as that also uses Vulkan and the RTSS overlay shows in that game using the profile I'd created for it sometime ago. So I copied that and renamed it RAGE2.exe.cfg but it still doesn't work.

    The RTSS overlay works with just about everything else I've played recently including DX9, DX11 and DX12 games and with DOOM 2016 Vulkan as mentioned.

    *EDIT*
    Tested the RTSS overlay with Strange Brigade and it too works with DX12 and Vulkan versions of the game.

    Very odd that it is not working for RAGE 2...

    Set the detection level to "high" (in the Rage 2 profile). That fixed it for some people.

    Yeah the traditional method I do is to explore the world first and then wrap up the story...here have these perks that no longer really matter! :p
    At least some of the arks had additional guns and not just various powers but for the most part it was pistol (Why does this have a burst mode as a primary!) and assault rifle though once upgraded that works on just about anything with good enough results. :D

    Doing at least the first mission for each character before setting out to clear the game world is definitively recommended and the arks can be handy as it's easy to miss weapons as you can no longer just buy them.

    EDIT: Though without a height indicator the detector is pretty average really and once feltrite is in it sometimes beeps and you wonder if it's a chest, PDA, ark stuff of crafting some more stuff but no it's these blue rocks that are everywhere anyway.

    Ok, I figured out why you are getting those frames. You have your resolution scale setting to automatic. That makes sense. Turn the resolution scale to off and see what happens. You are basically running it at around 1440 with those settings.
