    The memory two main RAM pools are referred to as CPU and GPU so I presume it means system and GPU RAM, or at least that's what someone else said, so you can try setting based on what you have for those. But it does give the option of entering 0 for the game to compute the amount as listed in its own notes. For the other pools I just doubled the original values to see what would happen, but I'll try seeing what the auto setting/0 results in.
    Well, until you can get an upgrade you might as well just crank up the graphics settings if your FPS is going to be the same regardless.

    Well the game is nvidia sponsored... and no this is not gpu related, but i wouldn't put it beyond nvidia at all just wanting amd to look bad all around.

    Interesting - but just points to the game really needing more development time before being launched.

    It should be fixed in future updates. Until then you have an option to fix it yourself. It's up to you if you want to do it or not.

    I think you need a powerful GPU to see any improvement, RTX 2080 and up. On my 5600X and 1070 Ti there is no difference with the fix. You can see a small bump in performance but i have to drop down to 720p to notice it. CPU load dose go up from about 30 to about 50% though.

    This was a very obviously intentional choice, even if the game's release state wasn't a clown fiesta's dumpster fire, this check in the exe to disable SMT usage on AMD CPUs would have been there regardless. I'm sure they'll have some BS excuse why they did it.
    It probably affects lows dramatically even on a weak GPU. Try driving around an area with tons of NPCs around.

    Your Gtx 1070 never gonna be the same,its already old and obsolate for ...Nv.
    This game incorporate Nvidia sutff and its made lately with new Rtx 3000 in mind and wallet. :)
    Now its too late and PC/PS4/XBOX gamers pay the price of a rushing product.

    Frankly, I don't care for your point. Your response was needlessly hostile towards a simple user tip. Your righteous indignation over it was overblown.

    The self genious of your response is what's funny.

    You can joke about it, but with their latest shenanigans with hardware unboxed, nvidia basically confirmed that they are every bit as bad as their critics has always suspected.

    I doubt this is gonna help any on my Vega 56, since even now my CPU utilization is at 30% and I'm lucky to be getting over 40FPS. Nevertheless, I am definitely going to try it out once I get off work.

    The dumb thing is, I DO have the money for RX 6800XT - IF ONLY THERE WERE ANY TO BUY!

    I wouldn't need to be so obvious if you weren't so negative.

    Use this instead, it is not editing exe file, just dll files + it also helps intel cpus, and more functions coming soon, check it is github https://www.nexusmods.com/cyberpunk2077/mods/107

    https://github.com/yamashi/PerformanceOverhaulCyberpunk

    Currently fixed
    Upcoming
    • Memory allocation performance
    • Skip conditions that never fail
    • Probably some pattern conversion to SIMD
