"Oh there's nothing wrong with gameworks, you're all just a bunch of haters!"

"Where's AMD's gameworks? They don't have one? LOL!"

"Gameworks gimping your performance? Buy Nvidia next time peasant!"

Gotta love the internet. Thinking about picking up Pcars myself since I'm on windows 10 and AMD cards seem to be stomping all over that game on the DX12-oriented drivers that come with it.

to be honest, thats also true for gaming evolved titles from amd for nvidia. after they didn't run so great at the release they now got more fps then amd thanks to specific focus in the drivers.

Even when I was running on the Ultra spec, I still noticed the difference between AMDHairworks and Nvidia's. It has to work I don't see how it couldnt. I am using GOG version and my game is installed on my D drive which is mechanical. My C drive is a small 128Gb ssd

I reset all of my settings in CC to ensure that everything was set to their default values and I still can't get it to work. My CC profile looks exactly like the one on reddit. I have tried running multiple levels of tessellation and nothing seems to change anything. I even changed the AA level in the ini file and I'm still getting the same crap fps.

I did exactly as the instructions stated, created a profile for witcher3.exe from bin/x64. Selected the witcher3.exe profile, not general application settings, and edited the tessellation to override application settings. I'm not sure what else there is for me to do.

....ummm..... your lowering the graphics quality for one and not the other... And its not like this is a sponsored nvidia game. I don't think you understand why there was a framerate issue on the AMD cards and not the Nvidia... AMD cards have 1/2 the tessalation capability than nvidia cards have. Your fps goes down because its having to do a bunch of calculations and it's hitting a bottleneck (more so) on the AMD cards. So this config allows you to lower the tesseleation. So, if your cutting the tesselation in half on the AMD, then yeah you will break even. Im sure AMD does better in some other areas, so it would be understandable if they get a couple more fps then nvidia. But what your saying is kinda like saying... On Medium Settings AMD gets higher FPS than Nvidia does on High.


The real question is.... do people really notice the tessellation difference? Do people notice the shader differences between low and ultra.... do people see the difference between 4xAA vs 8xAA? Some people just dont see it, or dont even know what to look for. I pulled up some video in youtube today and when the video was playing, i had to check to see if it was 1080 or 720p. Some people can tell the difference between FLAC vs 128Mbps MP3. All in all, it comes down to the value vs cost. Its kinda funny, i prefer games to play in windowed mode (full screen) because i like to alt tab without minimizing the game and stuff, but when i played GTA5 like that... it was a slideshow while driving. I flipped it to full screen and it worked great. Costed a little, but HUGE value in the end. (I now play games fullscreen .... at least until i get a new Graphics Card)

Try lowering shadows. Just set it to low. I know we like to brag on having ultra but when it comes to W3, Low shadows looks the same as ultra. Its a joke really. I tell you this because on my 290 at 1100mhz, I average 40-45 fps. makes a difference.

Its almost as if CDPR is trolling us. Its like the put ultra settings just to kill performance and nothing else

The shadows can have a noticeable but subtle difference as seen here:

http://international.download.nvidia.com/geforce-com/international/comparisons/the-witcher-3-wild-hunt/the-witcher-3-wild-hunt-config-file-tweaks-interactive-comparison-2-on-vs-off.html

Personally the priority for me if I had to choose would be foliage/grass distance > shadows > hairworks. There are characters (Nilfgaardians primarily) who even with hairworks appear to have large amounts of gel/hairspray in their hair for the cost of hairworks. Foliage pop-in to me though is much more annoying and if you look at some of the examples you see farms with no crop showing on lower foliage/grass settings at low/medium distances.

Yeah you're right about the shadow thing but it ddoesnt make much of a difference. Since there are a bunch of monsters, I keep HW on. foilage looks like crap regardless so its not a priority for me

It's funny, AMD has published the tess override setting on their site as a workaround for HW.

I think it's a sound temporary solution. It does little to impair the "quality" just gives users more control.

Nobody has ever really thought the tess slider was dumb, but a few us caught users passing off tessellation using benchmark results as cheating.
