For those of you who will be playing CD Projekt’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC, you’d better check the system requirements before you plonk down your hard earned cash.
Love how they've gone beyond regular min/recc specs to show us actual resolution and settings. I have a 970 so I think I'll try and get some of the Gameworks features in there (those wolves look amazing with that sleek fur) but dropping down a few other settings to high/medium to compensate. I can take a hit on shadow resolution and not really feel like I'm loosing out. And I don't really need more than 4xAA.
That chart is pretty neat. I, too, have a 970 so I should be able to get Uber settings at 1920 x 1080. I also have a gsync monitor, though, so I think I likely will be able to use hairworks and still get smooth framerates. Speaking of hairworks... http://gifyu.com/images/W3a... That stuff looks amazing.
I qualify for 1440p with gameworks. It's my 3.5 vram that's the bottle neck. I need DX12 to come save me.
Damn! That looks great, I'll definitely take a few hits in some settings to get Hairworks running! I do recall hearing that during the previews they were using machines running 980's and Hairworks really knocked the FPS, everything else was on uber - but I don't think the 980 will cakewalk uber+Hairworks. Only a few days now guys and gals!
Well it seems my overclocked GTX 780 ti will do just fine @ my display's 1200p resolution. I wonder if they enabled support for using a second nVidia graphics card as a dedicated PhysX processor because I have a GTX 770 in a Hackintosh I built recently that would be perfect for all those GPU accelerated effects. @Starrman1985 Hairworks is a very demanding feature. They used it in FarCry 4 on animals like the Yak and it looked incredible.
@starrman1985 Yeah, I'm sure the Hairworks is quite demanding. But it looks so damn good and I really hope I can manage to use it. According to Nvidia, not only is it used for Geralt's hair and beard, as well as animals like the horses, bears and wolves, but it's also used on over three dozen kinds of monsters (like the one in the gif, for example). Nvidia also clarified some of the PC version's other advantages. Some of these include: "higher-resolution textures, higher-quality effects, higher levels of detail", horizon based ambient occlusion (HBAO+), and, of course, uncapped framerates and ultra high resolutions. They also stated that although all three versions use "NVIDIA PhysX, which adds realistic cloth and destruction effects throughout the game", "on PC, these effects run at a higher detail level and with additional particles that further increase their fidelity and realism". http://www.geforce.com/what... Those are some pretty nice exclusive graphical features for the PC version. I've also heard some additional settings can be adjusted in the config/xml files. I'm looking forward to see how nice it can look after a little tweaking. [Thank you, cartoonx1, for pointing out where the gif originally came from.]
Have you read ever 17?? Or you picked tht pic from net? :(
I'm sorry, I don't understand what you are asking. I did get this gif from somewhere else on the net. Actually I think someone else on N4G posted it earlier, if I'm not mistaken, and that's where I got it from. I just had it open in a tab on my browser and thought I'd share it because it looks so awesome.
I happen to be JP-EN bilingual, so securing a copy of Ever 17 dirt cheap (in my case the digital PSP version which I played on the Vita) was easy :D If you dig back a page in my submissions you'll find my review for it.
tht GIF is posted by NVIDIA on their website, here is better looking one from their website. i hope it looks as good as advertised. since there were instances where some Nvidia effect didnt look as good, like far cry 4. gfycat.com/SevereSmoggyKomodo dragon
@starchild & cartoonx1 I replied to @Articuno76 :D. I was asking him/her about the pic,not you starchild :). The girl in pic is protagonist of ever17,a japanese game translated into english. It is one of the finest VN's to be produced. If you want to try a VN(visual novel),play narcissu on steam(its free)
Not sure what frames they are saying we will get but did read somewhere that they aim for 40 in these scenarios when its really busy on screen or something! Got a 970 last week and im always willing to make a few sacrifices for settings i find more noticeable or to achieve a solid frame rate Great card mind, love it!
Oh is that what GameWorks is? I also have the 970 so I will probably do what you are planning too.
I'll have some setting flirting to do at 3440x1440 and a 780Ti sc
The demo footage they showed was running on a 980, I have 2 so I should be fine :)
Are those 60 fps or that 30? In any case.. May the dark powers of Ctulhu help my PC to actually run it decently. I'm not a fan of lowering resolution any more. That could be a bit of a sales pitch, because there are only new cards there.
I believe usually its 60 fps. But most Spec Requirements from NVIDIA usually are a little bit over the top, like you said, sales pitch.
I have a 970 and Little bit lower CPU but ive runned every game so far at ultra with smooth fps. I dont Believe in can u run it NVIDIA and system reqs. Not even a 980 can run witcher 3 at max settings with smooth 60 fps they said.
http://www.dsogaming.com/ne... Here you go.
yeah my CPU is 4690k and i5
@Meltic I was just replying to you saying "not even a 980 Can run witcher 3 at max settings with smooth 60fps they said" But yes in your case you will not be able to run this game on ultra, but it will still look beautiful.
i7 5930K clocked to 4.5GHz GTX 980 4GB clocked to 1.5GHz 16GB DDR4 ram. I'm set!
You can run it on 4k with 60 fps? just want to know
Don't have a 4k monitor... yet. Plus the game is not out yet, so no idea.
Exactly the same setup as mine. I'm running on a 1080p 144hz monitor. Thinking of going SLI to hit a greedy 144fps.
Thank f*** I just bought 2x Titan X's! 4k + uber settings + gameworks
My god....the power. Guess I'll be playing this on the PS4 at peasant settings.
I'd hate to be your bank account right about now!
:-/ My bank account hates me right now..
Haha! I don't even understand why I got disagrees but that's hilarious!
People are just angry that one of your cards cost more then their car.
Yep, same boat as you. Ready! Two SuperClocked Titan X's, the 5960X, and 32GB of RAM.
I7 4770 k Gtx 980 MSI Gaming 16 gigs Ram I am SO rdy for this..... But damn still 4 days.
there recommended settings on Geforce experience are always to much for my system to handle, they really need to work on it.
1440p, Uber setting w/ GameWorks.
I could maybe handle the game one the lowest possible settings. But I'm not even going to try. CDPR has a history of poor optimization, so my plan is to grab the PS4 version and hold off on the PC version for 4 years or so.
My PC can't but my PS4 can and I'm happy.
what about 560ti my rig i7 3770 4gb ram (getting another ram) gtx 560ti
Get another 4 GB ram and you can get low to med setting.
If you are Lucky you get the low settings when you get the 4 extra gig ram. But that gfx is just to slow. Its like half power of the gtx 960 that they recomend for low settings. So its gonna be laggy i think.
thanks guys!I guess ill have to consider the 960 then with another stick of ram. appreciate it
This game will be RAM hungry.
Well, my GTX 770 should do okay on high settings at 1080p. Guess I gotta live with that :/
Depends on the framerate you want. If you wanna run high frames, i think its gonna be a mix of medium to high settings.
What do you guys think. What settings and can i run NVIDIA Gameworks with a gtx 780 and an i7 4770k?
I'm guessing High Settings with Gameworks, or Uber Settings without Gameworks, both at 1080p. But can't be sure until the 19th.
i7 4790K 4.4GHz GTX 980 Sli from mis 12Gb ram wooo i thing i can run this game yeah!
Dude.. Overclock that CPU of yours.. 4.4ghz is stock clocks and a waste with that chip and SLI. You should be able to easily get 4.7 GHz without trying.
I heard it runs as fluid as mgs:gz ! even on dual core.
Is that at 30 or 60FPS? If the PS4 version is the equivalent of 1080p at high as stated by CD Projekt, it's hard to imagine it's matching a GTX 960.
What a load of crap on 1080p, gtx 960 minimal for low settings, hahahhhh get the fk out of there, lie to whoever you want but there are people that know that is a trolling lie, oh man you got to love their way of fooling people.
960 for low? What a sick joke.
My PC can run this because it's a PS4.
Not great like the last on gimped for AMD.
