Okay everyone, time for some rumors. Russian gaming website Gametech reported some interesting information about the current state of The Witcher 3. Now before continuing, let us remind you that you are about to read unconfirmed information that you should be taking with a grain of salt.

According to Gametech, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a very demanding title; a title that a single GTX 780Ti struggles to run when higher levels of AA are enabled. As the Russian gaming website noted, the PC version runs currently with all its bells and whistles enabled (plus 8xMSAA) with 35-45fps on a GTX 780Ti at 1080p. Naturally, a single 780Ti is able to hit the 60fps sweet spot in its current form provided MSAA is lowered.

Moreover, it is said that the PS4 version will run at 900p/30fps while the Xbox One version will run at 720p/30fps. What’s also interesting is that the console versions of the game will meet the minimum graphics settings of the PC version. Gametech claimed that The Witcher 3 on consoles will look similar to The Witcher 2.

As always, take what you just read with a grain of salt. CD Projekt RED may further optimize its title, meaning that the game may run better on the aforementioned platforms. Still, the rumored performance of the PC version sounds spot on from what we’ve seen thus far.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!

The PC performance details seem more believable than the console flavours, but it's a moot point regardless since...

Given what they showed so far I'm more or less taking for granted that mine it isn't, but who knows, maybe a couple of minor compromises all will work finely.

Isn't the game at least a year away? Seems silly to think they would have such things locked down at this point.

actually optimizing for PC is a lot harder, because your don't have a target. It's just any hardware.

So a PC with a Radeon 265 (PS4-class) can only run the game at low, 1600x900? Slower cards, like the venerable GTX 560 and Radeon 6800 series can't even run the game above 1280x720 all low?

I call BS.

Eh, it being a year away I think it is pretty likely things like this are not completely locked down yet. But might be a target point. It being demanding was to be expected, but also tells not too much when there are many PC games with options that cripple performance while not providing that much of a benefit.

They sure as shit did not phone in the 360 version of The Witcher 2. This game will be fine. Come back in a year when it's actually out.

This is nonsense. Arkham Knight had HUGE framerate problems during its last demo, but people had sense not to over report it - and it comes out sooner than this.

Let people finish games before you dissect them with usual stuff like this, Games can look messy even in the weeks up to release - let alone a month (or in this case, almost a year) out.

Sites reporting hit bating nonsense like this should be ashamed.

If, hypothetically, this is true, then the poor performance on the PS4 and Xbone is more down to how god damned absurd the system requirements for the game are than any deficiencies in console hardware.

Yeah I wouldn't put too much stock in this claim. The Witcher 3 will definitely be a really demanding game but how can someone know about the resolution already? Game is still a far way off.

The Witcher 2 could totally be a PS4 game.

The statement in the OP is stupid, but still, they could port TW2 to the PS4 and it would fit in with the rest of the library just fine, visually.

If, hypothetically, any of this was true, people should *still* wait and see what the game is actually moving and at what level of detail, before making ANY sort of claim about the amount of "optimization" involved.
But I guess at this point this a lost battle for common sense, as people like to use "optimization" as a buzzword without making any effort to understand what it means.

I hate it when they phrase it like this.

Taking something "with a grain of salt" means you don't believe the story, not that you believe it but it may change in the future.

I know, but everything after that is 1080p.

Anyway the game is still almost a year away, so even if the rumour is true they still have a lot of time to optimize it. Both Sony and MS will almost certainly update their API tools and reduce OS footprint by then.

Similiar to The Witcher 2 its clearly not good enough for current gen systems to justify such a resolution or be compared to PC minimum settings.

Eh, Metro: Last Light and Crysis 3 don't have very different performance I think. Having figured of games with all the bells and whistles on is always a bit of bullshit to me when there are some settings that just cripple the framerate where it is perfectly fine to turn them off.

Er, having Witcher 2 fidelity in an open world setting is pretty damn impressive since The Witcher 2 still looks great.

Aside of that, I'm not sure if they already implemented the new lightning, I don't think so and they probably improve things in the coming time as the same thing happened with the Witcher 2. It also already looks a bit better than 2 imo.

If true, I hope the extra time can benefit all platforms in terms of performance. Of all the upcoming games we know of, this is the one I was most expecting to not be 1080p on PS4 despite hoping it will be.

I'm not making any claims regarding optimization. Regardless of how much detail the game is pushing, those claimed system requirements are absurd simply because they're beyond what all but the biggest enthusiasts actually have, in the same way Crysis was absurd in 2007.
