THE GRAFICAL PART

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects.

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is only supported on Windows  10/11.

steam

The priority and primary graphics API for Marvel's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is  DirectX 11/12 .

IMPROVEMENTS IN GAME VERSION 4.0

Patch 4.02 for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now available. In addition to fixing bugs, it improves the overall stability and performance of the game.

Here is the list of changes:

PC CHANGES

- Improved CPU core usage in DX 12.
- Restored diffuse HBAO shading. Players who have disabled ambient shading will need to enable it again. This setting can be changed in Settings → Video → Graphics.
- Fixed a bug due to which the translation of the "My Rewards" section in REDlauncher was missing.
- Fixed an issue that caused Toussaint scenery to flicker when NVIDIA HairWorks was turned off.
- Fixed a particle optimization bug that caused short frame delays.

GRAPHICS CHANGES

- Added ray traced reflections and refraction for screen space reflections - water now looks more natural.
- Fixed a bug related to brick textures, due to which black artifacts protruded from the stone vaults.
- Added motion blur slider. This setting can be found in Settings → Video → Graphics.

MISSION AND GAMEPLAY CHANGES

- Fixed an issue where the "Prepare for Battle" quest was missing a dialogue option to update the "Tell Avallac'h it's ready" objective.
- Fixed a bug due to which the door of the warehouse in the mission "Case of National Importance" would no longer open if the player knocked, entered and immediately left the building.
- Fixed a bug due to which the task "Witcher's Antiquities: Cat School Upgrades I" remained active even after receiving upgrades.
- Fixed an issue where, when attempting to start a New Game+ from an incompatible save, the player could not launch add-ons in a standalone story mode until restarting the game.

LOCALIZATION FIXES

- Fixed a bug in the card descriptions for Gwent "Ciri" and "Geralt" in Korean.
- Fixed punctuation errors in Arabic translation.
- Updated the font used in traditional Chinese localization.

These are just the most important points. The patch also contains other minor fixes.

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality by MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment

 Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080, 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 at maximum graphics quality settings.

GPU TEST

witcher3 2023 03 14 17 41 07 923 witcher3 2023 03 14 17 41 10 555

In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also select any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is carried out on the most productive CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.

The test was conducted on the base configuration Core i 9 13900K with 32 GB DDR5 6400 MHz pre-installed memory. All used RAM was taken as an indicator. The RAM test on the entire system was carried out on various video cards without running extraneous applications (browsers, etc.). In the graphics, you can add and remove any resolutions and video cards as desired.

UPDATE OUTPUT v. 4.02

As we can see, patch 4.02 for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt brought minor changes in terms of performance. To a greater extent, this concerns an increase in processor performance, which gave an increase in the region of 10-15%. Some video cards have added FPS, and some have lost.

All in all, if you're expecting miracles to improve optimization with this patch, then they're not - the RT performance of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt update still leaves much to be desired...
