CD Projekt RED are known for creating huge showcase games for high-end PCs and no game screams “BUT MY PC RUNS THE GAME WELL, CONSOLE PEASENT“ more than the as-of-now unreleased Cyberpunk 2077. Of course, to correspond with the game’s release, there might be an NVIDIA Cyberpunk 2077 GPU on the way.

Less than 24 hours after the original proposal and NVIDIA is already teasing a new branded product for a Cyberpunk cross-promotion. With a blurry image and the always-intriguing “Stay Tuned” messaging, we will probably see the new Cyberpunk 2077 GPU later this week.
