The Witcher 3: Sexy and Demanding

The Witcher 3 is a sexy game, but that sexiness comes at a price.

My not ready :(

LAWSON721715d ago (Edited 1715d ago )

My GTX 760 is not (though I doubt it will not be able to handle it at 1080p with most high settings just I really want to have 1440p by this games release) that is why I am saving for a GTX 780 or ti, but hopefully instead the R9 290 drops back $400 eventually.

I think everything else is good except my HDD which is almost out of space. Everybody has plenty of time to prepare though because it probably wont be out until after at least august. (or is there an official date?)

wtopez1715d ago

The 760 is plenty for 1080p, just no Ubersampling. Why not got for an SLI setup? A 2nd 760 can be bought for $230 and the performance increase would put you well over a Titan.

LAWSON721715d ago

I was considering SLI but 2GBs is not enough for 1440p.

mewhy321715d ago

My PC is ready for this game. However, I'll be playing it in 1080p 60fps on the mighty PS4. It will be glorious, smooth, beautiful, and the superior console release.

Satanas1715d ago

@LAWSON - SLI 2GB 760s would be fine for 1440p depending on the game and settings. It may not be for Witcher 3, but it remains to be seen. I'm running SLI 2GB 670s and they have yet to give VRAM issues with anything, just bear in mind you cannot use both 1440p together with exotic forms of AA with 2GB VRAM (not that you really need to if you're running 1440p).

Tis game is gonna plough PCs like four hor's floatin da river.

May the Overclockers be with you.

Mine is non-existent. So I guess I'll be building a rig for this.

Ofthingsmanmade1715d ago

Nor is mine unfortunately. :(

combatcash1715d ago

My gtx 670 should be able to handle this game... I hope.

LAWSON721715d ago (Edited 1715d ago )

If a PS4 (HD 7850/7870)and Xbone (HD 7790) can handle Witcher 3 you sure can. A GTX 670 poops all over those 2 GPUs and is most of the time even a little better than the HD 7950. That is not even including the your CPU which is most likely way better than what the consoles offer.

combatcash1715d ago

My cpu is decent its a AMD Phenom II X4 970 BE so I need to upgrade but I'm waiting on a few more (next gen) games to compare benchmarks before I make my decision.

TheMadHatter1715d ago (Edited 1715d ago )

Yes but consoles have much better optimisation because of fixed hardware. Especially for a demanding game like this. I have a better system than both of them but Tomb Raider and AC4 performed better on the consoles (PS4 and X1) than my PC.

You can't go comparing the PC equivalent of consoles because it just doesn't work like that.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1715d ago

It'll look better on pc, but it'll also require better parts to match the performance. And if Witcher 2 has taught the pc gaming crowd anything it's that your rig can never be too good if you want ubersampling on.

Satanas1715d ago

@BATTOUSAI - Ubersampling is supersampling. If you're running at 1080p or 1440p, you can expect supersampling to be a severe performance cutter. It is highly unnecessary when gaming at resolutions above 1080p.

I have an EVGA 670 FTW. If that can max out this game then I will be very happy.

Jovanian 1715d ago

The first game with true next gen visuals

Metallox1715d ago

Hope it's good. If it improves things from The Witcher 2, then it will be great for me.

SageShinigami1715d ago

I can't say that graphics don't play a part in video games anymore. Some of these games coming out that are 8-bit/16-bit? I can't play them anymore. It's 2014. Don't get me wrong, if other people enjoy them then that alone is enough to keep making them, but for me? I'm all good.

I need a game that can use both graphics and art direction to build a world I actually WANT to play in, otherwise I lose interest.
