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 supported on Windows 10/11.

steam

 The priority and primary graphics API for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is DX 11/12 .

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt v. 4.03

Patch 4.03 for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is now available! This update fixes various bugs in missions and gameplay.

4cfd53b9e0004b345940b9ddec5ec30694e99c11 960x311

Here is a list of the most important changes.

PC CHANGES

Fixed an issue where shadows from ray-traced plants would suddenly appear when zooming in or changing the view angle.
Fixed a bug due to which, after repeatedly turning off and on reflections and ray-traced shadows, black shadows sometimes appeared on the edges of objects.
Fixed an issue where the DirectX 11 version of the game would sometimes crash on startup or when loading a save on some AMD graphics cards.
Added support for Intel Xe Super Sampling. This technology improves game performance and visual quality through machine learning.
Fixed some lighting issues for screen space reflections that occurred when ray-traced global illumination was disabled.
Improved performance of ray-traced global illumination and ray-traced reflections.
Purple splashes no longer appear on the screen when Geralt rides Roach through puddles.

GRAPHICS CHANGES

Fixed a bug due to which, when ray tracing was enabled, a grid of light reflections appeared on the ground and walls in certain weather.
With ray tracing enabled, the color of the web no longer changes as the camera moves.
Fixed an issue that caused some character textures to appear incompletely rendered during cutscenes.
Fixed an issue where the fog in Poison Valley was pink instead of white in the mission Through Time and Space.

MISSION AND GAMEPLAY CHANGES

Added "Next Gen Script Fixes" modification by Sergeanur.

MISSION AND GAMEPLAY CHANGES

The background music from the quest "In the Shadow of the Eternal Flame" will now stop after completing the quest. If you have already encountered this error, try to enter Novigrad or Oksenfurt's channels again so that the music turns off.
Added the ability to automatically apply oils in battle.
Geralt can no longer eat or drink anything underwater except elixirs and potions. // We agree that you can manage to drink a liquid underwater by uncorking a bottle, but to consume fried meat or beer from a mug is already beyond the bounds of the possible.

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

MSI Afterburner

 
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

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.
