Regardless of your processor or GPU, Cyberpunk 2077 can push your system to the limits. However, resourceful redditors have discovered that the game code significantly harms performance on some AMD processors, because it apparently checks to see if your CPU uses Team Red’s 2011-era Bulldozer platform and, if not, limits the number of available threads. Fortunately, the same folks have also crafted a simple fix that can lead to big performance gains with some AMD Ryzen processors under specific conditions. We put the fix to the test with several Ryzen CPUs, including some of the best CPUs, to determine which processors benefit and under what conditions. We logged up to a 23% gain in some Cyberpunk 2077 benchmarks, so the fix is definitely worthwhile if you’re limited by the performance of your Ryzen CPU. Our tests show that the fix works well for AMD chips with lighter core counts, so any Ryzen chip with eight or fewer cores will benefit. The performance gains apply to all four generations of Ryzen processors, but the improvements will vary based upon how close you are to a GPU bottleneck. We’ll also outline how you can apply the fix yourself.Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the most… Read full this story
