Implements optimizations and bug fixes
that provide increased performance for
Kepler-based GPUs. "
wow, with the latest driver + delete apex_clothinggpu make everything better, gameplay more stable with no dips.
play it for 5 hours really" fluid right now, i hope tomorrow CDPR update not ruin this.
Hi, sorry im a little late to the party
Wasnt sure first if my laptop can pull it off at all.
But i bought the game anyways as i enjoyed witcher 1 and 2 very much.
So now to my specs:
Laptop: MSI GE700
RAM: 4 GB
GPU: ATI Radeon HD5730 turned switchable graphics off and im using the newest omega driver 14.something
upgraded HDD to SSD Transcend 250GB
I measured fps with fraps and play on 1280x720 fullscreen + some .ini tweaks. Without the tweaks its unplayable even on low and everything off and under 10 fps.
Basically i turned shadows and trees/grass down to a bareable minimum.
My rig is a CZ17 Valkyrie, i7 3740-QM @ 2.7 GHz
16 GB RAM
GTX-680M (4 GB VRAM)
700 GB HD
Everything I have played up to now on this rig (Skyrim, FC3, DAI etc.) has been on ultra & all settings with no problem.
Once I got W3 loaded (on the SSD), even after all the Nvidia control panel & other tweaks enabled (still not able to get that blasted registry file to get witcher3.com to go on to high priority automatically), I was only able to play at 1360 x 768 fullscreen with all settings on low and no post-processing (~30 fps).
The rig didn't appear to be running hot so I didn't think too much of the overheating potential, And then, just to try every option, I hit the 'turbo fan' button, gritted my teeth due to the noise, and started up the game,
WHAT a difference...
I am still playing on 1360 x 768, but now have all postprocessing at maximum (except for motion blur, vignette, chromatic aberration), graphics fullscreen with everything on ultra except for shadow & no. of background characters (medium), and foliage at high. I am running @ a pretty steady 60fps, even in Novigrad.
I am also running RTSS and found that disabling Steam lessened the occasional (temporary) framerate slowdowns as well. So far, 1.03 & 1.04 have not caused me any significant issues. Very glad for the chimney smoke addition and increased texture quality option.
I found that the game is mostly heavy on gpu's but that 4gb ram may be causing bottlenecks. I think increasing that to 8gb (or at least 6) may give you a few more fps.
Do you guys know if there is a page where i can see all the ini commands explained?
The most complete i found was the one from nvidia, but like 70% of the settings are not explained
what sort of settings and performance can I expect?
Just a quick question for you knowledgeable folk here, is it even worth trying to play Witcher 3 on my Ageing ROG Asus Laptop or should I just stick to my PS4 version (which I am enjoying btw) My specs:
Asus G74SX : I7 2630QM 2.00Ghz (overclocked to 3.0) , 8GB GDDR 5 Memory , GTX 560M 3GB. Laptop is now around 4 years old not sure if I will bother, what sort of settings and performance can I expect? Maybe wait until W3 comes on sale on Steam?
