Watch The Witcher 3 running on my Geforce 660Ti

OK, so I last night I used nVidia’s Shadowplay video capturing software to record just under 10 minutes of game play from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I just wanted to show you how the game looked on what is considered the minimum specced GPU for the game.

As I said yesterday, I’m running the game on what I  consider to be an ageing GPU: A Geforce GTX660Ti but it seems to handle the game OK.

Every thing is set to medium and I have locked the frame rate to 30FPS so I can ensure a consistent  experience. Things look nicer on medium settings than on low, especially the grass and other foliage. It’s just a pretty game, to be honest.

Sadly, I forgot to activate the FPS counter while I was playing so can’t see what the  frame rates were doing but everything seemed smooth and very much playable. There was no combat so I can’t see what happens during heavy combat but if I get the chance over the next day or so (work commitments dependent) I’ll record some more footage with the FPS counter running.

Any questions, post a comment below and I’ll do my best to answer. Thanks for watching.

  1. I’m finding The Witcher 3 much, much better than both The Witcher 1 and 2 actually. The combat is much improved over TW2 – I think I only got as far as some giant monster in a swamp in TW2 – but so far I’ve sunk 23hrs into TW3. The world is huge – I’ve hardly made a dent in it – and while controlling your horse is frustrating (he’s not as good as the horse in Red Dead Redemption) using the Witcher powers is much more fluid this time. I have found, though, that the game doesn’t hold your hand so the combat can be brutal at times if you’re against enemies that are a higher rank than you.
    If you’re going to play it on PC you’re going to want a decent enough GPU to get stable frame rates and all the bells and whistles going. I’m pleasantly surprised that my 660Ti is handling things well but I still plan to upgrade to something like a GTX970 when the funds allow!

  2. I’ve been thinking about getting The Witcher III after seeing a mate play it a few weeks ago, but a bit unsure about how important the previous two games are to the story. Would it be worth getting all 3 as a bundle on Steam or just this one?

    • Of course, if you’ve played the previous two games (and read the books, I guess), you’ll have a solid background in the backstory and lore about Geralt and Witchers, but CD Projekt Red have said you don’t need to have played the previous games to get into The Witcher 3 – and I tend to agree. The narrative manages to give enough details for players that haven’t played any of the games to get an idea of what has happened before. That said, The Witcher 2 is often a cheap buy on Steam (I think I bought it during a Steam sale for about $5). That said again, I think The Witcher 3 is a far better game than The Witcher 2, which I never actually got very far in. Good luck!
