CD Projekt Explains Why The Witcher 3 Is Not 60fps On The PS4 And Xbox One

“When you have a vision to create an RPG that will leave a long lasting impression, you don’t think in terms of resolution or frame rate.”

the witcher 3 wild hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is perhaps one of the best looking games of this generation besides the likes of Ryse: Son of Rome, DriveClub and The Order: 1886. But what makes The Witcher 3 standout from those games is that it’s the first true open world game of this generation. The other games that I listed are linear games so The Witcher 3 is obviously pushing the hardware a lot more harder than any of those games could.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is already confirmed to be running at 1080p/30fps and 900p/30fps on PS4 and Xbox One respectively. But was there there a time where CD Projekt were targeting 60 fps on consoles but then had to revise back their targets due to hardware limitations?

I recently caught up with CD Projekt’s Michał Krzemiński, Senior Art Producer of The Witcher 3 and asked him whether they scaled back their targets as far as frame rate goes.

“We don’t think like that. When you have a vision to create an RPG that will leave a long lasting impression, you don’t think in terms of resolution or frame rate. You think of adventure, you think of living worlds, and the stuff you’ll be able to do in that world. Technical aspects are kind of secondary, which of course doesn’t mean that we don’t want the graphics to be awesome,” Michał said to GamingBolt.

I have to agree with Michał here. When you are creating a massive world, the experience of delivering a solid gameplay experience should come first. Graphics obviously matters as it adds to the immersion value but it’s the gameplay that the series is well known for. Being set in an open world, the game is going to be slow paced as it’s so 30 frames per second should not detract anyone from the experience.

Stay tuned for my full interview with CD Projekt soon. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt releases this May across the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.


Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

    I really dont know why stupid sites keep banging on about 1080p 60fps… in open world 60fps is NEVER the target, 30fps is always the target as it allows them to have more openworldliness haha about it. The consoles barely do 1080p 60 on the games they set at 60fps anyway got no chance on witcher 3

    • Dynasty2021

      I love how you clearly know nothing about PC hardware as you referred to the spec requirements.

      No game in history has ever, EVER actually required the specs the devs list.

      You can ALWAYS run a game at max settings with lower hardware specs than listed. The only thing out of reach these days for some people is 4GB of VRAM, and that’s not even a requirement – it’s a sign of a really, really ***t developer. “Hey guys we made this console game on a PC to run on a console with 2009 PC hardware, so we can now port it to PC, somehow make a mess of the coding so it needs 4GB of VRAM that not even this peasant brick has.”

      The new consoles are dated and rubbish, and that’s why the game is 30 FPS.

      Any other console peasant moron crap you wanna spew out? Like how The Order is the “best looking ever” or “PS4 can do 4K” or anything else equally hilarious, naive and moronic?

    • Psionicinversion

      so your expecting to run witcher 3 at Ultra settings + hairworks on a 770?

    • Psionicinversion

      yep no reply just as i thought becuase your full of crap… yeah a 770 is going to witcher 3 at ultra settings and hairworks and every other gameworks thing theyve thrown in at 60fps lmao i think its you who knows nothing about hardware

    • zeemonkeyman

      While I won’t argue that PC is always going to look better, I think you’re giving the new consoles an unfair opinion. Yes a lot of the games are still only running at 30fps but the majority are 1080p at least on the PS4 and 90% of shooters run at a smooth 60fps which are the games that really need to be! Go back and play a game on a PS3 and you’ll realise that the leap between the generations was actually quite big! Also these new consoles are half the price as the last generation were, so just strip back your elitism a bit will Ya.

    • Alex Serrano

      What developer do you work for? Can you tell us what game your working on next? Oh wait …you just act like you know what it takes to make an actual videogame. I love pc people that THINK they know EVERYTHING about the industry cuz they’re mommy got them a computer for christmas and some games.Dude unless you have made a game or are sorking on one dont act like u know anything about what it takes.

    • Starman

      Only thing I will add is: When did PC become a gaming console? as long as I can remember , PC is a tool .. not that it doesn’t do games well but at the same time you come off superior,arrogant …if I may…but the only one looking like he has no clue is you .. $1500 to $2500 to play a hand full of games …lol
      Me on the other hand , before I became a chef ,PC was A/my tool to make money … grow up dude …

    • Thad Vanity

      Moron.

    • Psionicinversion

      theres no need to tell everyone what you think about your self

    • Thad Vanity

      Thanks for proving me right……

    • Psionicinversion

      i arent the one calling people morons, should take a look at yourself before you call other people stuff

    • Thad Vanity

      That response. lol.

      I did though; I looked at myself, looked at your comments, then called you a moron. /thread

    • Psionicinversion

      hahah fair enough

  • Lars Anderson

    The game world is too heavy on the visuals to hit 60 FPS on console. Precious few PCs will be able to do it either.

    • Dynasty2021

      Precious few?

      A £500 system can run this game at 60 FPS easily.

      A £300 potato though….

    • bruce livingston

      Yes, precious few, most PCs run onboard graphics, which likely won’t run the game at all. Entry level gfx cards won’t hit 60 either, even on low settings. The game will look and run great on high end cards, but mid range will likely perform about as well as consoles. PCs, much like anything else in life, gives you what you pay for. I know this because I am a PC gamer primarily, and I game on a budget system.

    • Lars Anderson

      Name me a system that can run this on ultra.

    • FalloutWanderer2077

      I’d wager SLI 970/980 or CF R9 290/R9 290x’s combined with SSD, i7/AMD equivalent, 8gb ram. However, this is more than likely without Ubersampling. Unless you do not mind playing lower than 60 fps.

    • jonathan

      Uhm, Anything in the 900 series Nvidia cards and anything above a R9 290 in AMD side on ultra. i5 above.

    • FalloutWanderer2077

      Well, sure, if you are willing to tweak/lower some settings, you could potentially hit 60 fps but as said, with the compromise of lowering your graphic settings and/or resolution, at that price range.

      The recommended specs for Witcher 3 are only for med-high settings @ 30 fps. Taking that along with the info. we now have that the recent hands-on sessions for PC were running on a i7-4790,8gb RAM, GTX 980, and a SSD with fps ranging between 30-37. This was only on the high preset as well. These next 3 months are dedicated to bug fixing and optimization so I’m confident that performance will improve.

      My point TL:DR – Unless you have one of the best single card GPU’s out there or SLI/Crossfire, along with the recommended specs and above there is a fairly high chance that you will not be running the game at 60 fps. Not on Ultra, that much Is clear. They already stated if you want to play TW3 on Ultra with all the bells & whistles, you need a multi-GPU set up.

    • Spitfire

      so why am i getting the 60FPS @1080p then? i dont have an ultimate mumbo jumbo PC part, i only have i5 3470 (pretty old 3rd gen ivy bridge), dont have SSD, 8GB ram, GTX 970 all setting max out (including AA) except for Nvidia hairworks, and little bit of tweak in Nvidia control panel (and not the kind of tweak that will lowering the graphic quality)

    • FalloutWanderer2077

      Obviously a lot of people including CDPR were wrong. The game could still use some improvements in performance. It does run very well if you have the hardware for it of course. I have i5-4670k @ 4.4ghz, 980 Super Clocked ACX 2.0, 8gb of ram and maxed out + cascade shadows past Ultra presets I avg. 60 in some areas and low 50’s if it’s raining in the middle of a forest etc.

    • HisDivineOrder

      Your mind is too console-focused.

      Gaming PC’s can do many things to get 60FPS. One of which is upgrading hardware. Another of which is altering settings. If someone favors framerate over effects (or imo AA), they can greatly increase the chances of getting a higher, more consistent framerate.

      Or we can upgrade our hardware. The choice is ours.

      A console gamer’s choice is basically, “Do you want to play the game the way they decided you must play it or no?”

      Because the alternative to playing it at 30FPS is not playing it at all for the Xbox One or PS4 gamer.

    • angh

      I have i7, r9 290x, ssd, nice gaming rig into which I’m puting $500 yearly at least (around $3000 value now) and I’m playing skyrim in 720p/30fps. Great game, great mods, who cares how many fps rpg game will get?
      When Witcher will come out only 5% OC gamers will get better graphic quality that console gamers, for much higher price. Same game, same fun, read the article – RPG is not about the graphic.

    • Adam Matthews

      …you might be having some problems going on there because I own an i7 3770K and a GTX 770 2Gb and I max Skyrim with DSR 1440p, including overhaul mods

    • Adam Matthews

      I’m not saying your comment is wrong I’m just saying something is going wrong with your parts, or drivers for AMD are worse than I imagined

    • angh

      Try to install good ENB mod on top and try again – it really kills it;) but yeah, I had as well some problems at that time with VRM, other games were (+/-)fine but after i changed graphic card i didn’t check how it works on skyrim+enb. But I wouldn’t expect drastic increase;) will check it again when get back home, but still, resolution is not the most important thing in RPG’s;)

    • Adam Matthews

      When I meant overhaul I meant graphics overhaul so yes, I do have an ENB 😉

    • angh

      hmmm… now I want to try it again 😉 But ENB are as well different. Will check it out in few weeks;)

    • Voroseeg

      No PC gamer will ever say “i have i7”, you just gave away your disguise, peasant.

    • angh

      lol 😉 you forgot /s 😉

    • jonathan

      Ugh why ae you playing 720p, 30 fps? You can easily do 1440p, 60 fps even with mods. I do, with an i7 and 290, not X.

    • angh

      yeah, i guess i had something wrong with settings. but no, with solid enb and few other mods 1440 in 60hz is not really possible. But I think I will have to go back to it and check it again, haven’t touch it for a while;)

  • Agent HUNK

    long as its 1080p on ps4 and not the same as xbox

    • Kfal Balli

      Surely that makes for a much better game right, the barely noticeable extra pixels. Those few extra pixels must make the game more fun on ps4 correct? Smh

    • Agent HUNK

      youre missing the whole point !!! Its like going to the amusement park with your little brother and your parents say stay with him. Yet you cant go on any of the good rides cause hes too short !!!

    • HisDivineOrder

      Yeah. That’s how PC gamers feel ever since most of our best developers went to work making games that will also fit on consoles.

      Like we’re all on the kiddie rides instead of the super high end rides. Finally, you understand our pain.

    • Mike

      Consoles outsell pc by large margins, why would they worry about making pc games?

    • jonathan

      Yeah they out sell them but there’s still profit to be made for PC games. That’s all that really matters. Once you past the “break even” point in the development why would you NOT develop for PC? It’s extra revenue. And a hit game on steam that sits on the Top Sellers list usually sits there for weeks on end. Which usually at first sells for $60 like consoles but without needing the production or transport costs of a disc. Once they go down in price they sell even more, making up for lost revenue since it’s not $60 anymore.

    • Gaikai

      Yeah because consoles is what keeps these developers alive and brings money, unlike pc where all games are torented

    • HisDivineOrder

      That must be why all the indie developers that go Nintendo exclusive or Sony exclusive or Microsoft exclusive wind up showing up on Steam with a cup in hand and begging, “Please, sirs, have mercy…”

      Remember the sad tale of woe that is Alan Wake. Unprofitable on consoles; insanely profitable on PC.

      Yeah, I’m sure it was all that torrenting. 😉

    • jonathan

      All games are being torrented, true, but people that torrent games weren’t going to buy the game to begin with. Real gamers buy games. And PC gaming is a fairly large market actually even with torrenting and pirating. Funny thing is you can download console torrents and they are usually the most downloaded… haha. (for last gen consoles at least, to my knowledge no next-gen yet)

    • bardock5151

      What the f&ck kind of analogy is that. It’s got to be one of the single most stupid comments this site has seen…. That’s saying a lot, well done.

    • Guest

      Barely noticeable? Why cuz you ignorantly cant see it on compressed pics or compressed videos on the net? Try seeing it in real life then come back and tell me you cant tell, when you can clearly see that its blurrier and has more aliasing plus just looks rougher overall. And a few extra pixels? try 44% more, which isn’t measly. And if you don’t care about res than why even get a next gen system? Just stick with last gen.

    • Dynasty2021

      If you’re saying there’s no difference between 1080p and 720p or 900p…even Darwin is now saying “come with me”.

    • Kfal Balli

      Aren’t there recent reports of some of darwins theories now being proven wrong…but I digress. If those pixels make the game more “fun” to you then you might as well buy a high powered pc and not comment about consoles. Because certainly the graphical aspect is all you care about. I know I’ll be too busy having fun “playing” the game to be looking for small differences.

    • jonathan

      A lot of Darwin’s theory was wrong dude. We don’t work upon Darwin’s theory anymore. Haven’t since… well, Darwin was alive. It’s been refined countless times.

    • Davidgr2

      In a way yes it does.. Like how Diablo 3,Dying Light,Project Cars,AC4 and other games perform on Xbox One. A game like AC4 on PS4 if’s not just better in terms of resolution but when it comes to textures and AA.Diablo 3 is 1080p on both but the experience is better on PS4.Can handle more enemies on screen without frame drops unlike Xbox One version.Also there’s screen tearing on Xbox One and at times during the character screen.Now with project Cars.. runs lower resolution on X1 and lower frame rate than PS4. It’s sad ’cause Xbox 360 was an amazing platform but M$ went cheap with Xbox One.

    • Kfal Balli

      Developers say they are too close in performance to call. But I guess you’re the expert.

    • EmpeRawD

      And there you have it folks…straight from the horses mouth. lol

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      So even if it lacks texture filtering, has framerate drops, has no AO or anything resembling the PC version. You only care about one console having more pixels than the other.

      The existence of PC’s must upset you greatly.

    • EmpeRawD

      I think you meant the other guy

    • WellWisher

      I take it you have a PS4 then? What difference does it make what resolution the Xbox version runs at?

    • HisDivineOrder

      I think it matters because there were no shortage of idiots who said that the Xbox One having 1/3rd less GPU and half the memory bandwidth (except in a few rare instances when that cache can be used to offset it) would not have an impact on future games. These were the guys and gals who told us the Xbox One would never be the lower resolution alternative to the PS4.

      Of course, it was BS, but it was widely smeared BS that drove Playstation fanboys wild with rage because it defied common logic.

      As a result, now any time that particular issue shows up again in games, it becomes something for them to beat their chests and point and grunt at.

      Meanwhile, PC gamers just watch from the sidelines and nod. We knew it would be this way. It’s always been this way.

      This has happened before; it will happen again.

    • Agent HUNK

      I totally agree with you.

    • jent

      Take pride fellow chest beating ape!
      /s

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      So even if it’s the lowest of low settings (Or even below low settings like dying light). You only care because you can flaunt a few extra pixels in the face of everyone else.

      Console gamers, everyone. PC gaming must really upset you then

    • Agent HUNK

      you miss the point too!! I totally agree with the PC guys. Its not fair to screw over a guy cause his rig or console is better and just make a flat out format for everyone. each should be developed for strengths towards the platform they are appearing on. If you disagree your the problem with the gaming industry.. we want to go forward and get our moneys worth! If you want to game on xbone so be it… means less pixels and quality for you…you wanna game on the PS4 then you know you have the best console hardware out there! If you have an awesome rig and can get the 4k res and speed you need to deserve to be able to have that..plain and simple !!!

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      But the PS4 hardware is terrible and they are gimping the game back for that. Would it be indefensible if the Xbone didn’t exist and the PS4 was holding back gaming (Which it is)? Of course not.

      Fanboys don’t think logically.

  • Guest

    Because PS Poor for poor people that can’t afford a PC that runs the game like it should.

    • slasaru

      Playing on PC is like playing into the black hole. You finish the game and like no results. I played Far Cry 3 and Xcom on PC and while they look several times better than xbox360, i don’t have cheevos and all. So i bought these games on xbox360 also and started all over again. I finished Murdered on PC but now feel that better was to do it on xbox one or 360 because of all that progress and achievements. And it’s a one time game, which has zero replayability. Steam achievements? Don’t make me laugh, who cares about them.
      Mass Effect and Dragon Age series did not have gamepad option on PC.
      So you see?

    • HisDivineOrder

      Steam has achievements. As does Uplay and Origin on PC. Controller support can be added in, if only by third party programs, for the few games these days that don’t include said support.

      Try harder next time.

    • slasaru

      >>> Steam achievements? Don’t make me laugh, who cares about them.
      Read carefully next time

    • SaberEdge

      I don’t get it. They are the same thing. Imaginary rewards for doing certain tasks. None of them actually matter in the real world.

      Still, I enjoy unlocking achievements in games and my Steam games have them the same as my PS4 games. No real difference.

    • Nelson Frew

      I don’t understand, why do xbox achievements, which are synonymous in vanity to all other achievements, really, yield more value? What is it about steam achievements which “makes you laugh” where xbox achievements are worth your time?

    • Dirkster_Dude

      If you care about bragging rights with your friends it doesn’t really matter where the achievements come from. If your friends are not on that service or system then achievements or trophies have far less impact. I don’t know anyone on Steam nor do I have a desire to do so. For me any Steam achievements are nice, but not necessary. All my friends are on 360 or XB1.

    • Tyler McCartney

      Pc people will never understand to the day they die

    • Thad Vanity

      “Who cares about achievements full stop??”

      Read carefully next time.

    • zeemonkeyman

      Who cares about acheviments full stop?? They are just fake Acheviements tacked on to a game and most of them are ridiculous anyway, “smash 200 crates” achievement unlocked, Pssshht!

    • Batman (NOTBruceWayne)

      To get a PC that is far more superior than a ps4, in terms of hardware, only costs around £100-150 more than a PS4. Playing on a console is a preference, not a cheaper alternative l. Atleast, in my opinion.

    • zeemonkeyman

      Well thats not exactly the whole truth. Unless you want a mediocre computer in a couple years you’ll have to keep upgrading.

    • Batman (NOTBruceWayne)

      Considering how much more the games are, plus the yearly subscriptions to play online, I could easily save loads of money and then send it on hardware upgrades. I had my PC ordered, but decided to hold back until I finish studying. No point having a PS4 and a PC if I wont be able to play all that often.

    • zeemonkeyman

      Yes in theory but due to games been so damn cheap I find myself buying anything that is half good even if I never really wanted it. So even though you can get games for 5 to 10 bucks I have bought so many of them that it is no longer cheaper! I have over 200 games on Steam and I’ve only played about 20 of them! With console I am much more picky when I buy games and I only get ones that I know I’ll definitely play.

    • Joseph

      With anything running windows your going to have extreme slowdowns on your hardware after about a year……unless you like wiping your computer all the time, which isn’t a bad thing considering I do it about once a year but I have a good PC and a PS4 and a Mac (not used for gaming just photoshop cause it runs 100x better then it does on PC even though my PC for specs wise blow it out of the water.) But it truly depends on the game for instance I will play a shooter any day on PC over my PS4 but RPG’S I tend to prefer them played on my PS4 just due to experiance, but that is all my opinion but at the end of the day your right it’s based on your preferences. 😀

    • Thad Vanity

      Rubbish. Extreme slow-downs. Not everyone installs every stupid bit of software that gets offered up to them.

      It is completely possible to maintain a Windows system’s performance over time.

    • Hailey

      IDK, I think some people think that PC sucks. They think nerdy losers who live in their mom’s basements and have no girlfriends… When they go on and on about PC power bragging rights.

    • WOLF581

      naive and egomaniac pcbots we r poor because we buy consoles? i have all 3 consoles and in 2015 i will play halo 5,bloodborne,uncharted 4,zelda,starfox,tombraider,quantum break etc and i m already playing bayonetta 2,driveclub,sunsetoverdrive,mario 3d,donkey kong tropical freeze,gtav ,killer instinct ,mariokart,smash bros melee and thats the exclusives which means YOU cant even play them so DRYNESS THE WAY Y MEANT TO PLAY rich sucker

    • zeemonkeyman

      No idea how you got so many likes for such an ignorant hateful idiotic comment! But anyway.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Considering there’s a really upset Sony fan upvoting you 70 times. It’s caused considerable upset.

      Maybe Sony should try release a console with actual power next time.

    • hiawa23

      I like many can afford a kickass pc rig, but I am fine with the consoles. They are good enough as my tastes go. Not interested in pc gaming at all.

  • RunStopGo

    I don’t get this 60 fps crap, a game is good when it is fun to play, what more do you need?

    • Guest

      “what more do you need?” Obviously the 60fps crowd needs 60fps, its their crack, they gotta have it.

    • Dynasty2021

      Ahhh “who needs 60 FPS”, the mating call of the hypocritical peasant scum.

      So when hype turned out to be crap and PC gamers were right all along, and your potato CANT do 60 FPS in…yep pretty much every game because the hardware is too old and rubbish, you now dont care about graphics?

      Its a good thing not every single article these days turns into console gamers debating graphics then isn’t it, otherwise they’d look REALLY hypocritical. Haha.

      Oh wait…

    • WOLF581

      naive and egomaniac pcbots we buy consoles because we want AAA games i have all

      last y r the hyprotical ape suckers why ?
      1 all of sudden all pcbots that posts have high end pcs
      2. all pcbots even with high end pcs because of no AAA games to play the playing allday with emulators all pc forums r full of “how cant play fzero gx with my corei3 in 60fps even gc can do that” or “at last gt3 in 1080p/60fps” haha starving pcbots
      well dont be jelaous because the 90% of AAA games r console exclusives snakes

    • ObsessedGeorge

      It’s always better to have more fps. Dark Souls 2 was a mess on PS3. Not even locked 30fps. Headaches where part of the experience! 🙂

    • demonsouls13

      with 9 years old pc you cant even start Dark Souls2:)

    • SaberEdge

      Well I can’t play Sunset Overdrive on my non-existent Xbox One either.

      Point is: get a new PC, duh.

    • demonsouls13

      I have real gaming pc i7 4970k 970sli but my point was only pc users they like to say bad things about Ps3.But they dont want talk about any bad words about pc:s.To play Dark Souls 2 with 9 years old pc against Ps3 would be fair fight:) But it cannot be done because it wount even start with 9 years old pc:)

    • Jecht_Sin

      What mess? I just platinumed it. Maybe it wasn’t silky smooth but it was well playable. The only real mess has been Blighttown in DS1. But that just added to the challenge!! :p

    • ObsessedGeorge

      Hahaha! What mess he says! Blighttown mess. In Majula the game had serious problems. I have the Platinum too, l enjoyed it, but it was the time that l was playing Ground Zeroes and Dark Souls 2, so the difference in smoothness was huge. So.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      This is a new low of excusing Sony consoles terrible performance. Even for you.

  • ObsessedGeorge

    No problem, l’ll get my open world 1080p/60fps fix with MGSV The Phantom Pain. I wish we could have Witcher 3 in 60fps but it’s ok. This studio always delivers.

  • Ryo Shenmue

    The Witcher 3 is perhaps one of the best looking games of this generation….except for the fact that it hasn’t even come out yet.

  • LanaDelReyFan

    The reason I don’t have a pc is because a console has more mobility. You can take it with you on a trip. So shut the FVCK up about pcs already. Nobody cares but you.

    • SaberEdge

      Nobody, except for tens of millions of PC gamers.

      Yep, nobody at all. /s

    not goin into te Debate of PC vs Console .. it’s just a Fact that a PC will always be better, it continues to evolve while a Console stays thesame for 5 to 6 years .. as for 1080p and 60fps in an open world game is unlikely on a console (even though MGS the Phantom Pain gonna be an open World and promises to deliver 1080p and 60fps on the PS4)

  • popo123

    I don’t care much on having higher FPS as long as the FPS is stable and smooth. 30 FPS is perfectly acceptable since I don’t really experience any huge difference in playing a game that’s only 30fps and 60fps. Keyword: I DON’T, I as in personally. I have both PC and consoles but I prefer playing on my consoles more as I use my PC for work(I’m an illustrator) and the internet. Of course having a higher FPS is always better but it’s not something that should ALWAYS be focused on in gaming development. The most important is always having a stable and smooth experience.

  • Chiching

    Can anyone remind me of an Open World game with 1080p/60fps! GTA V maybe?

  • Allah Akbar

    though 1886 was a disappointment, , we still got a load of masterpiece coming our way later on this yr

  • Jecht_Sin

    If I have to choose I take better graphics at a locked 30fps over twice the frame rate. That would apply to PC as well. If I can get Avatar like graphics locking the frame rate at 30fps, gimmi that!

    Also because I am not very sensible to frame rates, as long as that doesn’t affect the controls. The only thing I can’t really stand is the TEARING.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Must suck owning a PS4 then considering the amount of tearing. Implying consoles than do Vsync. Please….

    “You think of adventure, you think of living worlds, and the stuff you’ll be able to do in that world. Technical aspects are kind of secondary”. It’s sad that this gen, gamers have this in the opposite order.

  • YOUDIEMOFO

    This is one of those multiplats thst will be best enjoyed on a beast of a system……..PC!

    Alls I have to say is 4k fidelity with all bells and whistles turned all the way up!

    “Ticket please…..!”

    • Psionicinversion

      and 3x 390x’s to do it 😀

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      Oh man……. If it holds true to the DX12 hype I will not be upgrading for quite some time. Just hoping they do not drop the architecture/support just because of that reason…….profitability and mandatory upgrades!

      I think it is due time for us consumers to get a bit of leeway regarding hardware/software support and longevity toward its lifespan. “SO HOPING” they can do just this for us all.

    • Psionicinversion

      Just depends on if the devs bother to code for it or not. I think rise of the tomb raider will be dx12 because MS will be wanting them to do it in dx12 and code properly for the xbox. Then hopefully they’ll do dx12 for pc and slap in adx11 render for those stuck in the dark ages and not wanting to upgrade to windows 10. Free performance boosts all round. Wait for skylake to apparently something big is coming… We’ve had CISC, had RISC now we may have VISC which might be 1 big core split into lots of small virtual cores, it’s called morphcore anyway we’ll have to see and could be a sizeable boost to cpu

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      “BRING IT!!!!!”

    • Psionicinversion

      needs a highly paralell workload uses CMT virtual cores, needs highly single threaded loads up SMT cores.. bang bang just got hope AMD put this into Zen or they are screwed

    • LarZen

      Of course that is the best way. But it’s also the most expensive way.

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      I’m not going to argue that….., but it is usually one “side effect” whenf attempting to attain to what we have come to call “the best”

  • Johannna_L

    Easy. PS4 and X1 very weak compared to PC, cant even do smooth 60 fps

  • Charles – The Great and Powerf

    PS4 sacrifices fps for resolution. You are gonna be dipping down to 23 fps on PS4 and locked at 30 fps on XBox One.

  • Chubzdoomer

    Meanwhile, on PC…

  • Bill Norton

    Great game being ruined by horrible frame rate drops…it stuns me that things like this slip past developers…the only logical conclusion is that none of them actually played it in consoles…because if they did…they knowingly released a poorly optimized product
