Can't honestly recall right now! Lol ( laying in bed browsing on my ipad)!Hmm, do you have Shadows on Ultra? If so, you should definitely turn it down and get a free 10-20 fps with minimal difference visually.
The game's just sickingly inconsistent with framerate.
My rig is a 980 + 4690K rig and i've tried 3 main setting configurations:
Config that I use and almost never dip below 60fps
- Everything Ultra aside from shadows(medium) and foliage(high)
- 80-100+ fps
- Never goes below 60fps, even fighting bears, fiends, griffins, nothing. The only way I made it go below 60fps is when I tracked 15-20 wolves and even then it only dropped to 54-58 fps (the framerate tanks when I zoom into Geralts head though but this is expected considering the hair being rendered at x8 MSAA)
A solid config, turning off hair works on this build ensures you will NEVER go below 60fps REGARDLESS of what you do and it looks damn good (pretty much full Ultra). Probably the one I will stick too
It's annoying, because with shadows on high/Ultra you can run the game 99% oft he game with no issues but there seems to be areas on the map that cause random ass lag spikes (only ever happens when it's night time, in the morning the framerate goes back to normal). There is this area called "Reardon Manor" (where you first meet Letho) that causes my FPS to dip to 45-50fps (fully maxed out, no hairworks) and it's essentially a ghost town. My fucking largest dips in NOVIGRAD was 58-59 for a SPLIT SECOND. I narrowed the issue down to the shadow setting down into medium completely fixed it and my FPS was back to being well over 60.
It was fucking ridiculous.
It's annoying, the shadow setting seems to be completely fucked, looking at the nvidia comparison there is borderline NO DIFFERENCE between medium-Ultra despite Ultra costing anywhere from 10-25 fps (depending on location).
Basically, even on a Titan X, there is no way to never dip below 60fps fully maxed out unless you're running a high end SLI config.
Nay, on trophies (griffin) and monsters, looks good, but I hate the look on Geralt, I think it makes his hair looks too "silky", while the default hair look more "dirty" and less "perfect Japanese CGI crap", just my opinion. ^^

Running hairworks at maximum quality here. I think it looks great, and definitely enhances the IQ of the game. The only thing I don't like about it, is that bears don't have enough simulated fur on them. I think they downgraded the hairworks for bears, because I don't recall it looking this bad when the game launched..
I remember thinking this a little bit too.
Oh well. Bears are really rare anyways
