No no no! I just got my new PC built and I wasn't planning on replaying Witcher 3 for at least another year...Niiiiiiice...
Looks like my W3 Playthrough is gonna be around the corner here:
As I wrote, I had a hell of a time committing to it. Always wandering off to another game within the first hour. This last attempt the bug bit me. It was all I played until finished. I will happily do another playthrough after the update. I know there is stuff I missed.Still sitting on my drive not getting played. Bought it when I built the Ryzen 3700X system in 2019.
I have many screenshots from this game and it's one of the few that I was floored by the graphics alone. My first sunset on Skellige I just put the controller down and watched the sun fade away. I think I was honestly more impressed that my old PC was able to max the game without any frame rate issues so I'm fairly excited to see this game with updated graphics at 4K.
I am updating the game as I type. I have a RX6800 I will try it on. I will install it on my 3060ti system too, and see what kind of a difference it makes with RT. Honestly, I have zero cares for lighting and shadows, reflections are the only RT feature I find value added. It could be due to my aging eyes, and not using a HDR display.so 4.0 is now available...anyone tried it out yet? Does it do the rays well?
I picked up my new 6800XT yesterday, but probably won't be able to finish the new system until the end of the weekend, but it's also dedicated to my new racing rig...but I will be trying Witcher 3 on it at some point. I don't expect Ray Tracing to work very well at all for AMD, knowing CDPR's long history with crappy Nvidia tech, especially with "Gameworks" from the first days of W3 release.
I wonder if it will scale to triple 2k displays?
But just reading the release notes, definitely calls for a 4th replay soon!
Performance with RT does suck, I tried again this morning and it would crash immediately unless I turned off RT, launched then tried adjusting settings after I was in game. But then sometimes it would work, other times it would crash.To fix afterburner not working: Go to your Witcher 3 folder, open BIN, make a new folder and move the 2 following files into it -
Playing on an RX6800 Ultra+, Hairworks maxed, 1440, it holds the 60fps frame cap I use. If I try to turn on ray tracing on any save that I was not using it, it crashes to desktop. Ray tracing tanks performance massively to. It looks great on ultra+ so that's how I am playing.
