It may be hard to believe, but the Google Stadia version of Cyberpunk 2077 may be the best way to play for most players right now. Unless you have a 20 or 30 Series Nvidia GPU or comparable AMD card or you were lucky enough to get a PS5 or Xbox Series X / S, this game will not be performing anywhere close to how it was designed to. That means going the cloud gaming route is a surprisingly viable option if you’re concerned about performance and you also want the added benefits Stadia provides, like playing across multiple devices and not having to download the game or any subsequent updates to get right to playing.

I just went and played the first hour of cyberpunk on Stadia and it was actually alright.

Granted, it looked more like a video stream than a real-time game, but it was totally playable.

Surely, if you have a newer computer, this won't match the graphics (especially with RT and HDR, etc.) but it delivers more of a "console quality" experience.

Check out this video, the graphics probably look better than you think.



Also, tried to get cyberpunk running natively on the spare rig (GTX 1060) and even on lowest settings and dynamic resolution it still wasn't hitting 60 fps.

In this case, like if you have an old 1060 or similar card, Stadia is actually the better experience.

The experience is irrelvant. This tech need to be flushed down the toilet. I rather play it on a base ps4 or xbox s then give money to a streaming service.
