Cyberpunk 2077 is playable via proton

Cyberpunk 2077 is playable with Proton, amd Mesa(GIT.)

Playing it right now. It’s hella fun. Thought you guys should know.


Some links to the news too in our fancy common thread.

And another fancy thread too :upside_down_face:

I need to made some reminder later…It’s all getting mixed up, not good for search.

How well does it run?

Ubuntu 20.04.1 with a RTX 3090 (455.45.01 driver version) running on Steam via Proton 5.13-4

Not sure if he’s 100% hip to the settings and all the stuff from my gaming guide, but i guess it’s somehow representative :upside_down_face:

Proton 5.13-4 Steam Linux | Cyberpunk 2077 | GTX1650 | Ubuntu 20.10 | 30fps | freezes sometimes
Medium Settings

Also keep in mind, it’s on not-so-perfect-yet-but-will-be dx 12 :woozy_face:
There’s certainly a room for improvements!

I’m 11 hours in. It’s really buggy, both windows and linux version, but it’s so fun to play.

My rx580 is struggling though. Gotta upgrade it.


Come on, just wait a bit, it’s just 0 day on Linux :laughing:

I’m definitely waiting out that bug-fest…People are insane :upside_down_face:

I’m also gonna get this game next year, in the vain hope that a RX 5700 is sufficiently fast to run this in 1440p…
Good to see that it runs with Proton! And thanks to CD Projekt Red for not including DRM stuff and publishing it also at


Now that is very cool! :+1:


I don’t think people are insane for playing a game on release day.

Yes, it might be buggy, but with games of this scale that’s bound to happen, regardless of development time. Perhaps an open-beta period would’ve helped with the tracking down and squishing of bugs, but hindsight’s always 20:20 eh? :joy:

I’m only about 90 minutes into it, having completed character creation, and the initial intro and tutorials. I’ll get more playtime tonight, but for me so far it’s been fine. Early days though :slight_smile:

CD Projeckt Red own and run :wink:


There’s a level to it…If game is bugged AF on 0day, chances of it getting fixed are very low, because devs already got all the money for pre-purchase and all that…

There are countless examples of that in later years, which is huge shame.

Also there is R* games, but i know it’s one of a kind :laughing:

About 2 hours into it, and the only complaint I have is that the FOV is set to 80deg by default. Come on, I am not playing it on a 4:3 crt TV. I am on a 16:9 Widescreen LCD monitor with my gaming computer.


Enjoy FOV hack :wink:


Already done. PCGaming Wiki is one of the sites I go to all the time. Before Widescreen resolutions became common on games, because consoles were STILL outputting 4:3 resolutions, I used to go to the widescreen gaming forum as well.


Hmmm… Curious how my RX 5600XT will fare then… Probably only medium 1080P I guess…

I hear it is a struggle on low to medium range cards…pushing them to the limit. I can see this game forcing a GPU upgrades for a lot of gamers. :laughing:

I can say that my RTX2070 Super, with ray tracing on, will run it at 50fps with mix of mostly Ultra and some High settings. If I turn the ray tracing off, it will run a solid 60fps. I cap the frame rate at 60 because my monitor is a 4 year-old LG 1080p 60hz monitor with an IPS panel. I start to get tearing if I go above 60. Oh, and the implementation of Freesync on it sucks. Even if I were to run an AMD card.

EDIT: Changed ATI to AMD. Even though it has been a long time since AMD bought ATI, I still slip up and sometimes call the GPU’s from AMD ATI.


I’ve seen some gamecaptures on youtube of people running it on the same Ryzen 3600 and RX5600 XT I have, and they’re having framerates between 45 and 60 on ultra 1080P…
Guessing medium to high settings will be the sweet spot for my card then…
