[WCCF]Witcher 3 Benchmarked, GTX Titan Does 30FPS At 1080P And Ultra Settings

The not so good news however is that if you’re an owner of a GeForce GTX 700 series card you will need to turn the settings considerably down to attain playable framerates. Because unfortunately just as I had mentioned at the beginning of the article. A GeForce GTX Titan only manages an average of 30 FPS, which is really just one FPS ahead of the R9 285. In fact all Nvidia Kepler GPUs ( 600 series and 700 series ) show almost catastrophically poor performance. If you look at the GTX 660 for example, which is a card that competes with AMD’s R9 270, it’s nearly performing at half the rate of the slightly faster R9 270X with a 13.6 FPS average compared to the 24.2 FPS average of the 270X.

The GTX Titan and GTX 780 also perform quite poorly, falling behind their Radeon counterparts the 290X and 290 by nearly 50%. We see this trend with older graphics cards from Nvidia’s GTX 500 series and AMD’s HD 6000 series as well. Which indicates that Nvidia’s Game Ready drivers are only optimized for Maxwell based GTX 900 series products. And will need some serious optimization work to bring the Kepler based 600 and 700 series products up to par.
On the Radeon side we actually see surprisingly strong performance for an Nvidia partnered title. The results are more inline with how the cards would normally stack up against the competition. With the R9 290 and 290X cards performing similarly to the factory overclocked GTX 970 from MSI. And the R9 285 performing similarly to the GTX 960.

So, technically speaking, Nvidia is not gimping Kepler. But, if Gameworks titles are only optimized from the start to favor the newer Nvidia architecture over GK110, and any further driver enhancements are only focused on GM204 and GM200, doesn't this put any GK110 owners (and Kepler owners) in the same position of being "gimped". The message is very clear from Nvidia, upgrade when the new cards come out, or loose optimization support. It doesn't matter if someone bought a Titan Black in Feb/Mar 2014 (when it was released) by dropping $1k on an Nvidia card, they would have only received a few months of driver optimization support until Sep 2014 when 980 was released.
How does this math work out for Nvidia's customers who pay the highest price for their cards? I guess the justification is, if they can afford to pay $1k for a card once for a few months of driver optimization support, they can be expected to pay another $1k to upgrade to the top end card of the next gen..... lol

Milking the top end of the customers is nothing new... tongue.gif
But, this takes it to the level of where one feels like taking a bath (to get the slime off) after making a proverbial handshake with Nvidia by buying their top end GPU.... lol

No matter what settings i try, my 780 ti wont get over 45 fps...kinda sucks when I have this new Acer 144hz monitor... mad.gif hopefully some driver release will bump the older cards up, but for some reason, I doubt it.

a 780 below a 960 and a r9 285... what a funny time to live in

Just get the PS4 version, it looks the same and it runs better than some $400 gpu´s....

CDPR really dropped the ball in performance, they need to patch the game fast

No, no, no guys. This isn't Nvidia's fault, it's the developers. wheee.gif

Nvidia is getting complacent.

Burn them for a little bit.

They way I see it, you are screwed either way. Either you go team GREEN and get short lived propper support that lasts only until their next architecture, or you go team RED and wait for months for a game driver. mad.gif

I can foresee how enraged the TITAN X owners will get in only a fews days after Pascal arrives.

It's been a long standing joke since Maxwell came out that the r9-280x is getting "stronger and stronger" with every game release. mostly because Nvidia seems to be either "forgetting" or straight up "gimping" kepler cards in new game releases, with the result being the r9-280x leap frogging stronger Kepler cards in performance.

This is unfortunately just a continuation of the trend.

something to keep in mind if you buy nvidia in the future i guess. they'll only support the current gen cards with their drivers.

Exactly the same miserable boat
