Witcher 3 should look similar across all platforms, but PCs with NVIDIA cards will have the edge

During Łódź Game Summit 2013 in Poland dobreprogramy.pl had a chance to ask CD Projekt RED many questions, one of them being the difference in graphics between powerful PCs and PS4 plus Xbox One. The studio aims to have a similar visual experience in every case and as of yet did not have to sacrifice anything for consoles, but at the same time it confirmed a close working relationship with NVIDIA. While the consoles are based on AMD solutions, some effects may be reserved for PCs with GeForce cards. (AMD, CD Projekt RED, Dev, NVIDIA, PC, PS4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Xbox One)

Bad for me 560ti. I gotta upgrade but I don't need to hury because I mostly play games that don't take a lot of power

Wait till the 8 series drops sometime in Q1, then buy either buy a midrange Maxwell (should be Titan level performance) or a high end Kepler (770/780). Maxwell looks like it's going to be a pretty massive jump from even the Titan, and AMD look like they're trying to start a price war. Interesting times for GPUs coming soon.
Abriael  +   271d ago
Same. Can't wait for this game. It's my most anticipated next gen title so far.

That takes the piss, 2 consoles with ATI cards and the comp gets the better deal :@,

Same with AC4. It's normal.

Nvidia and AMD both moneyhat developers its something we have to deal with.
vulcanproject  +   271d ago
I said it before and I'll say it again, whatever the consoles have inside them matter not to PC gaming.

Intel and Nvidia rule in PC land in market share, console hardware won't change that because it never has. It hasn't mattered in the slightest what has been in the consoles the past 20 years because PC always leads from the front and dictates the direction of videogame technology.

Having CELL or XDR memory in PS3, or eDRAM in 360 and a PowerPC CPU made a sum total of zero difference to PC gaming hardware the past 8 years.

As per usual all that happens is that newer consoles derive more and more from existing PC technology, not the other way around.

The new consoles are perfect case in point. They have never been more like PC derived hardware, x86 CPUs and Radeon based graphics ripped right out of a PC architecture and shoved together on a PC derived APU process.

Intel rules the cpu market, Nvidia does not rule the gpu market(not yet!!). They love to peddle their proprietary crap, sort of like Microsoft.
vulcanproject  +   271d ago
Nvidia's GPU market share on PC is over 60 percent for discrete boards. Thats a pretty significant lead. Its been that way since forever so they do rule the GPU market and have done for years like Intel have always dominated the x86 market.

Its ironic you accuse Nvidia of peddling proprietary crap when AMD harped on about mantle for a while now, Nvidia have their own technology IPs same as anyone else, except Nvidia usually get decent support for them without having to pay people to use them because of their aforementioned market share dominance....

It's coming to a point where we are gonna have to treat PC's like consoles. Devs are gonna need to make an Nvidia and AMD (ps3/360) version of the same game.
Jovanian  +   271d ago
i don't think we're at that point yet, I don't think pc gaming could survive such extreme hardware polarization, it would be bad for business for both of them

Still rocking my gtx 580 from a few years ago. I'll probably build a completely new rig once Maxwell drops though. I love building new systems..there's just something exciting about pressing that power button for the first time knowing that you completely custom built it.
THEMIGHTYDOOVDE  +   271d ago
Thanks for the headline Captain Obvious!
GentlemenRUs  +   271d ago
Urgh I hate it when these idiots claim (Feature) exclusive for one type of graphics card...

I think I'll wait till people mod it so the features show up on all cards.
Dante81  +   271d ago
Blame Nvidia and their proprietary crap.
feraldrgn  +   271d ago
Hoping the game doesn't come too late in 2014, I want it now.

Good for 80% of PC gamers. Most people have Intel and Nvidia Hardware lOL:P
SoloWingX  +   271d ago
uhmmm... my HD6850 is so not ready, it barely runs Witcher 2. A PS4 would be tempting if I didn't have a 20 year old CRT TV (which still works flawlessly :))
PurpHerbison  +   270d ago
Pretty sure a high end Nvidia setup and a high end ATI setup will look exactly the same.
Mr Tretton  +   270d ago
Yeah, they meant performance, not looks.
PurpHerbison  +   270d ago
Pretty sure a high end Nvidia setup and a high end ATI setup will perform exactly the same. Get your 1up out of here sir.
Mr Tretton  +   268d ago
I was agreeing with you, yet you seem to think Nvidia and AMD cards work exactly the same. Sorry, they do not due to driver support. Nvidia>AMD and everyone knows it.
PurpHerbison  +   268d ago
Oh good lord dude. Get the technicalities out of here. You knew exactly what I meant the first time you commented. Yet, you commented.
ded1020  +   270d ago
Booooooo. Where the sex cards at?
Mariusmssj  +   270d ago
It's because of the advanced Nvidia PhysX 3 implementation. Can't wait to see it
