Cyberpunk 2077 has a lot of technical issues on consoles and PC. Those with mid to low-end PCs having a hard time running the game and the same goes for PC gamers with high-end AMD Ryzen CPUs. However, there is a way to fix Cyberpunk 2077 PC performance on AMD Ryzen CPUs. This guide will help players with how to boost the game’s performance on Ryzen CPUs.
Cyberpunk 2077 AMD Ryzen Performance Fix
Cyberpunk 2077 is facing performance issues on PC, especially, on AMD CPUs. This is because the game is only using physical cores and leaves logical cores idle. Meaning, if you have an AMD Ryzen CPU with 6 Cores and 12 Threads, Cyberpunk 2077 will only use the 6 physical CPU cores.
The fix for Cyberpunk 2077’s performance on AMD CPUs is rather easy as players have to alter one line of code. However, this fix has diminishing returns on CPUs with high Core/Threads count. So, if you have a CPU with 16 cores, don’t apply this fix.
To improve Cyberpunk 2077’s performance on AMD Ryzen CPUs, download the HxD hex editor. Open Cyberpunk 2077 executable file or exe file in the Hex Editor or just drag and drop the exe file in the Hex Editor. Press “Ctrl + F” and search for “75 30 33 C9 B8 01 00 00 00 0F A2 8B C8 C1 F9 08” and replace this line of code with “EB 30 33 C9 B8 01 00 00 00 0F A2 8B C8 C1 F9 08”. Save it and launch Cyberpunk 2077. Players will notice that the game’s performance has improved.
If you don’t know how to change it, here is a video demonstration. Of course, the code being changed in the video is different but, it’ll give players how to replace the code mentioned in the fix.
