CD Projekt Will Iron Out Witcher 3 Pop In & Frame Rate Issues On PS4, High-end PC Required For 60fps

“The game won’t kill your PC if you have a lower end machine.”

Witcher 3

A few weeks ago we reported that the PS4 version currently suffers from slight frame rate fluctuations and pop in issues. These two are usually the biggest technical hurdles in developing an open world game so it’s not surprising that the Witcher 3 on the PS4 also suffers from these issues.

However, Michał Krzemiński, Senior Art Producer has assured to GamingBolt that all of these issues will be ironed out in the final game. “We’re still in the optimization phase, so we’ll definitely iron these small things out,” Michał said to GamingBolt.

However in terms of frame rate, he believes that both PS4 and Xbox One versions ‘look solid.’ It must be noted that both the console versions are targeted to run at 30 frames per second. The PS4 version will run at 1080p and the Xbox One is currently at 900p but there is a chance that resolution might be improved in the latter’s case.

On a related note, there has been a lot of controversy regarding Witcher 3’s requirements for PC. The recommended settings would the run the game at 30 frames per second. So what kind of build will PC gamers require to have a full 60 fps experience?

Michal stated that although he cannot give us the details on the 60 fps requirement, he did said that players need to have a high end PC to run the game at that standard. “They need to have a pretty high-end PC, but I won’t give you the details now, as we’re still optimizing the game and anything can change. Having said that, the game won’t kill your PC if you have a lower end machine — we want all gamers to have fun, not only the ones with the most beefy specs.”

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC this May.

    Bring on the eye candy and them “beefy requirements!!” I’m standing by to see what this is going to look like at 4k!!

    • Psionicinversion

      Was funny seeing some comments go that must be the x1 version, ps4 going be better lmao it can’t even run at 30fps lmao… Optimisation= down grade for the consoles

    • andy

      Enjoy your PC exclusives like The Sims 4, the biggest PC franchise of the last 15 years and clearly took advantage of all that power to make a better looking game than…………well The Sims 2 anyway lol. But yeah, blame consoles fool.

    • Psionicinversion

      your just jealous the PC exclusives actually sell shame about the console exclusive games selling max of 10% of the user base lol

    • Guest

      He’s poor in both wallet and brain and can’t afford anything else because he’s spent all his budget on an overhyped brick that can’t run newer games properly.
      His reply will always be, “but, but, but Xbox One” in a desperate attempt to ignore that his box is just as poor.

    • Gaikai

      Poor xbots I bet they think xbone has a secret nvidia titan hidden in the power brick, oh boy can’t wait for DX12 to unlock that ; )

    • Slipknot8312

      Haha

    • Psionicinversion

      That would be hilarious if they hid a gpu in the power brick and no one checked it

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      Wholly world of PSU’s!!!! Is that seriously the size of an XBOne power brick?! Seriously though what are the dimensions if this thing is truly a big brick?

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      The only reason you would bring that up would be to deflect from people talking about how weak the PS4 is after it was demonstrated the PC is superior. Which it is.

      Which is probably the most damning indictment of the PS4 outside of its awful performance that it’s fans have to blame the other console. Rather pathetic.

    • DarthDiggler

      @disqus_wzVuX9iCxs:disqus

      Funny you PC guys have been hyping up the fact that PC Hardware is so much better than Consoles. Mantle and DirectX 12 are the biggest improvements in PC performance in years and its 100% software.

      🙂 So you want to keep dissing the power of creative programming? The only way the software for PCs could get more efficient is if you PC guys decided on a single spec, much like a console!

    • Psionicinversion

      no it wouldnt because it would hold gaming back again

    • DarthDiggler

      @psionicinversion:disqus

      I am sorry dude, I am taking away your gamer card right here right now.

      You seem to have a very limited expertise about gaming and game development which casuses you to spit out untruths left and right based on your own willful ignorance.

      I haven’t seen anything that resembles an intelligent argument from you ever. You just spit out the same BS all the time, I am suspecting you are a bot that would explain the knee-jerk reactions and lack of intelligence. Otherwise you are just a living breathing talking point relay station.

      To educate you. The reason some developers perfer the single spec nature of consoles is because they can actually dig into the hardware. On the PC you have to target a certain “spec range”. In reality what holds your PC back is the lower end PCs included in that “spec range”. Especially for the PC exclusive games.

      There is no conspiracy at play and in general consoles have been nothing but good for the game industry. More competition leads to more innovations.

      Again you give me NOTHING but strawmen. Doesn’t it bother you that you are unable to provide an intelligent counterpoint that isn’t laced with presumption and bias?

    • Psionicinversion

      only 1st party devs that develop specifically for the one console will extract the most performance but on a multiplat game they havnt got the power to keep up even with low grade hardware

    • undermyrules

      single spec? really? nope we are not limited as a console is…we pc gamers game beyond 1080p and sometimes as the oppurtunity is there 60+ fps like 120 on a 120hz monitor….its a fact that consoles are stuck at that line and they can never go higher….if you dont care about graphics and stuff why you go on a argument with a pc gamer that preferes ultimate experience max graphics max rez and 60+fps.. my advice stick with your ps4 or xboxone and play your games and tell your self that you game on the best system.

    • DarthDiggler

      @Guest

      I am not poor, I have a job where I use a PC every day, do you really think I want to sit in front of a PC when I get home?

      EDIT: Furthermore I bet the marketplace for used GPUs rivals used games (in terms of revenues). You think NVIDIA and ATI get a piece of that?

      Do you call PC gamers who buy used GPUs peasants for not buying the latest and greatest?

    • DarthDiggler

      @psionicinversion:disqus

      Oh yeah we console gamers are jealous of a platform riddled with pirates and cheats.

      Do you read what you say before you hit POST? Most developers develop for consoles you know why? IT IS VERY PROFITABLE. No such thing as a 90% piracy rate on Consoles.

      Got any more zingers for me PSIONIC?

    • Psionicinversion

      so profitable most of the peasants wait for cheap used copies of games where the developer gets no money… thats exactly the same as piracy hahahah

    • DarthDiggler

      @psionicinversion:disqus

      You can’t even have a conversation about this you are so buried in bias. You have no evidence to suggest that MOST players wait for game sales or used games. GTA 5 has sold BUNDLES on the consoles. You know why it’s coming to PC last? BECAUSE OF PIRACY. RockStar wants to make their money first.

      So go on and tell me about the lack of profitability in the console sector. Piracy isn’t ramant on the consoles, it is on the PC. Some games have 50%, 75%, 90% piracy rate and quite honestly I find it disgusting that so many people have so little ethics. Those numbers DO NOT EXIST on the console.

      Got any more strawmen you want me to burn for you brah?

    • Psionicinversion

      well the 360 was heavily pirated, just look on torrents theres tons of games on there fake gamer….

      Look at the order 1 week later was like £10-15 cheaper so people will be buying those games so dev gets less money and so filthy console plebs just as bad as SOME pc gamers. Fact is not that many games get pirated… sure witcher 2 went out of control but you wait and see i bet witcher 3 on PC will sell 3-4 million units in its first week at least…

    • DarthDiggler

      @psionicinversion:disqus

      The amount of modded PS3s and Xbox 360s is a scant minority. The PC requires no mods for piracy. It is ready to go out of the box.

      Many games get a discount after the launch period. This is to help thwart used game sales. If you discount a week or two later, GameStop has to compete with the NEW game price. Which means if they purchased games for higher than the new retail price, they won’t be making very much profits. It’s a squeeze play on used game sales. It’s a very smart strategy.

      Again you demonstrate that you are just buried in PC BS. The fact is I don’t care which system you game on, but you are just making stuff up about Consoles in order to elevate your choice of gaming platforms. Which is infinitely stupid. I won’t enjoy my PS4 games ANY LESS knowing that you own a PC and are playing the games at a higher resolution than me. It will enter my mind at NO TIME when I am gaming. So why do you expel all this effort? The only thing you prove to me and other console players is you are an a-hole.

      I still got plenty of matches if you still have more strawmen. Your arguments are weak sauce.

    • Psionicinversion

      keep on accepting these weak pieces of trash consoles that hold gaming back, DX12/Mantle will be out soon and guess what…. the lead is going to be massive over night

    • DarthDiggler

      @psionicinversion:disqus

      You really think that in the absence of consoles PCs would just up and be super awesome?

      Care to cite some evidence to support your claims?

      How about the contrary?

      Direct X12 and Mantle both have given PC games the biggest boost in performance in years. Those two technologies were inspired by CONSOLES! 🙂

      You PC Caliphate A-holes are like the Jehovah’s Witnesses of gaming. Spreading your gospel of PC gaming regardless if it is welcome or not.

      I got PLENTY of matches BRAH. Keep your nonsense strawmen arguments coming! This is getting to be fun now.

    • Psionicinversion

      consoles are good because we can get the peasants to pay for our superior graphics so thats fine by me. Its so funny as the games there bringing out that are multiplats run so bad its funny. Just over a year in and there tapped out already lmao. When DX12 is out and PC GPU’s get like a 50% boost instantly even on weak CPU’s. Only a dual core starts bottlenecking a 980 means lower cost PC’s that perform the same as previous systems or same price PC’s that run games SIGNIFICANTLY better than the consoles.

      Microsoft… DX12, windows 10, cross play, cross buy and bringing there exclsuives to PC killing consoles 1 game at a time. hahaha this will be the last gen of consoles becuase PC will dominate

    • demonsouls13

      If pc could kill consoles you should think what happens gamers after that,future games after that doesnt look good no AAA games just goatsimulators and stone simulators and so on…I dont wanna play games like that with my high end pc.

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      I bet there would be much hurt if you were able to game against a person on a PC while you were on a console….much hurt indeed. Until then you do not have anything to truly worry about. And used games only effect consoles and at the same time hurt the overall cost of an IP because of sorry resale scalping.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Of course we can blame consoles. They hold graphical progress back, introduced cancers like microtransactions and paid exclusives.

      I mean, really. Ever stopped to think about what you are paying for? Oh wait, you haven’t and you never will.

    • Dirkster_Dude

      Consoles may hold graphical progress back, but Microtransactions and Micropayments appeared first on PC platforms that had NOTHING to do with video games and was popularized and made useable by systems from IBM, Compaq, and Apple (you have heard of iTunes I expect?).

      Article here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micropayment

    • reallydude?

      Lmao wut? Micro-transactions started on the PC when MMO’s began to shift to the free to play model in order to compete with WoW.

    • DarthDiggler

      @TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed:disqus

      You are wrong, PCs started the microtransaction trend and they were very popularized on Facebook. Smartphones are the 2nd biggest culprit. Consoles have far fewer games that support microtransactions and far cheaper microtransaction options.

      Consoles push graphical progress forward. You guys should be happy there are consoles with 8GB of ram, you won’t be hamstrung by the 512MB of last generation.

      You like your PC brethren have it 100% assbackwards.

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      8GB of DDR3 Ram was common back in 2010 and GPU’s are now between 2GB-4GB GDDR5. PC GPU’s are also moving to faster HBM Ram and DDR4 faster than the consoles. So you are the one who has it backwards as consoles were already behind even when the PS4 and xbone launched.

    • OldSocialist

      Microtransactions were introduced on PC and 360 at the exact same time, with The Elder Scrolls Oblivion.

      And a guy from Lionhead once told me in detail how the need for continuing optimisation for consoles benefitted PC gamers, as the technology both fed back to PCs and lessened the need for constant hardware updates. Interestingly, some lazy developers had used vastly varying PC specs as and excuse for visual plateaux, but in order to compete in the console market they had to learn to squeeze every last bit of juice out of the machines. Your games look good because of consoles, not in spite of them.

    • Dynasty2021

      PC list of exclusives beats both crapsoles combined in terms of numbers, so dont bring that “exclusives” BS argument to PC players.

      And if you’re going for “quality”, PS4 has Uncharted and…and….and…hmm…

      Even MGS Phantom Pain is coming to PC now – my reasons for owning my PS4 have now dropped to maybe 2 (open world RPGs and Uncharted).

      But I’ll stick with my £20 games on launch, 100+ FPS and 120hz, with 4K any time I want.

    • Guest

      WEAKNESS AWAITS.

    • DarthDiggler

      On the PC the slogans could be…

      AIMBOTS AWAIT!

      CHEATERS AWAIT!

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      Oh wait that didn’t happen on any other format but PC………. NOT!!!

      Man I stopped playing certain games across all formats because cheating was even worse on consoles….! You mean to tell me on a PC and on a server with admins and software like PB, or anything else running with it that it would be less secure than a console?

      You my man are living the pipe dream. Cheaters are everywhere and they will always find a way. At least on the PC there is an “active” community/server you can direct flack to. Who are you going to spew off to on the console side of things.?

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      Did they ever say whether or not full textures will be available at 4k? Like crysis 3 and a few other titles actually support.

    • Psionicinversion

      Tbh it might take dual gpu to max it at 1080p 60 nvm 4k hahaha but I dunno there not sharing anything about the high end. Maybe they’ll say when its released

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      Let’s hope…… Just also hope they do not physically “cap” the game so as to not use more than 3-4gb of V-Ram and piss on people’s parade that just bought their new cards.

      Then again that would an interesting way to force adoption of higher capacity GPU’s.

    • Psionicinversion

      3-4GB is enough for 1080p not so much for 4K though

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      where do I check to see if my PC has VRAM or not? I think mine has only 1 GB but not sure.

    • Psionicinversion

      open up geforce experience or catalyst drivers pending on what GPU you have and it will tell you in there

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      I went under geforce experience in the My Rig Tab and I don’t see anything that says VRAM is in my computer.

    • Iagainsti120

      @ Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3 you have 512MB of VRAM, according to that last screen capture. The rest is shared memory.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Thanks I’ll give it a look

    • ChatWraithShichi

      All videocards have RAM. Memory isn’t unified yet, so if a videocard doesn’t have integrated memory, they won’t function.

      You have 2GB. See? at the bottom, 2048 mb = 2GB.

      You should do some research into how PC parts work.

      For one: Laptops generally can have base RAM added to them. They can also sometimes have their harddrives changed.
      However, in order for laptops to be so small, their parts are usually welded/soldered together in a factory, making it so you can’t take parts out without being able to weld/solder them back on. Failing to do so without machine precision would turn your laptop into a brick.

      For this reason, laptops will increase in power, but desktops can easily swap out parts. Your theory that laptops will become better is silly. They are always downgraded versions of desktop parts that can run on battery to allow you to be mobile.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Yeah I’m new to all this so I’ll need to do that before I even consider building a rig of my own. Ah ok. I’ve played some games on my PC so far-clearly I’m gonna need a better card with more VRAM to get the most out of them. Yeah I can upgrade to 16 GB, currently have 8. I have a 1 TB HDD-dunno if I have room to add another. Oh ok, I see why laptops never tend to be upgraded now. Would I be able to get a professional or tech store or something to do it for me or so? Tegra K1, Nvidia’s next generation mobile chip, is set to rival PS3 and Xbox 360. If they keep increasing the amount of power just that one chip can hold then eventually they’ll apply that knowledge to the laptop version of their graphics cards and get more out of it. We used to all have have CRT monitors-but technology has allowed us to finally make flat screen monitors the standard. I don’t see how this won’t be possible. not in the near future but it can happen. so my laptop will basically stay a piece of junk then? this is me running Super Mario Sunshine on Dolphin, although it’s not latest version, since latest has problem getting installed on computer dunno, but you’ll see how bad frame rate and stuff is in the top left corner. It kept fluctuating and slowing down.

    • ChatWraithShichi

      Oh my god. Ok:
      1) Chips don’t “hold power”
      2) Yes, your laptop will stay the same as it is, forever.
      3) upgrading system RAM won’t give you a speed increase.
      4) no, a ‘professional’ can’t upgrade your laptop. It would be near impossible to even get the parts. You’d have to pay some really expensive fee to have your laptop sent back to a factory to have it re-soldered. You need to buy a new laptop with new parts in it.
      5) Any videocard or processor made in the last 3 or 4 years already surpasses xbox 360 or ps3. “rivalling” them is a gross understatement.

      6) dolphin is an emulator. Emulators usually don’t have a high framerate, and that’s simulating dated hardware anyway.

      7) It will be possible to run the witcher 3 on medium-ish settings on your laptop. Don’t worry about that.

      8) I have a strong feeling you’re trolling. If you aren’t trolling, I recognize you’re trying really hard to learn things but “flat screen” is not what non-crt TV’s are. There’s a difference between CRT and LCD screens, that being interlaced cathode rays and per-pixel projectors. Technology doesn’t just “poof” and make the things you already own better.

      How old are you, exactly?

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      I don’t mean they’re their own power source, I meant to say they have a lot of processing power. what a hassle, and I just bought Elder Scrolls Anthology too. yeah I know but still bad given again emulators run old hardware and my PC wasn’t doing that very well. OK. I won’t be able see it as it was meant to be though 🙁 you know what I mean, i know what CRT is, I’m just using the latter term loosely instead of explaining what I mean in more detail. I know there are different types of non-CRT screens I was just using a flat screen as a loose term to describe them all. Monitors are slimmer than CRT’s used then so I thought people used flat screen term for monitor the same way they refer to TV’s as flat screens, I didn’t literally mean flat screens is all that it’s called. I grew up with CRT, for most of my life unfortunately, so I know that difference well, but sadly not how each one works. I’d like technology to be more flexible so I can have more accessibility, as my current lifestyle has me always on the move and not stationary for too long of a time, so I was wondering about upgrading instead of buying yet another computer soon. And since you’re wondering, I’m 19. I grew up always behind the times, especially since I had only CRT until recently as aforementioned, and for PC also, so I never got the exposure to all the cool tech or was forced to adapt in order to stay ahead of the curve like you so sorry that I come out more naive than I really am. I’m new to PC gaming so I don’t have a full grasp on how PC’s work yet, but that’ll change. Sorry for rattling your head.

    • Psionicinversion

      dolphin emulator converts Power PC commands to x86 thats why it takes alot of power and you definately need an i7 for that and then an ok GPU. As for the witcher 3 id say youd be running it on low at 1080p maybe even 900p to.

      Tbh the only thing that is massively letting you down on that laptop is the GPU, shame really cus the rest is fine.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      I do have i7. It’s quad core I believe. it’s 2.5 GHz but can Turbo to 3. So with no effects on then? Oh really? Is there any laptop specific GPU more powerful than 840M that would suit the build without overheating?

    • Psionicinversion

      no becuase it will be soldered to the motherboard you cant change it

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Grrhh..so how weak is my GPU..which one would I have been better off with?

    • Psionicinversion

      your GPU is probably half as powerful as the one in the xbox… xbox has a 1.3TFLOP GPU, according to nvidias site yours is 0.79TFLOP’s…. its not good tbh

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      As in half power of Xbox One? you’ve gotta to be kidding me. I can’t believe this I paid nearly $1000 for a piece of junk. is there such thing as over clocking on laptops?

    • Psionicinversion

      you might be able do it in the drivers but best case is an extra 0.1 i reckon

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      oh, how does overclocking work anyway?

    • Psionicinversion

      your supposed to do it like 10mhz a time or something, i dont overclock anything because id end up frying it but loads of youtube vids

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Well my GPU reaches 46 degrees Celsius at most. So yeah I guess it wouldn’t be worth it. If only were desktops were easily more portable I would’ve got that instead of a laptop.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      I got the info I needed. turns out I have absolutely no VRAM whatsoever, but I did find other info. based on this info can you tell my how badly optimized my laptop is for PC gaming and the highest possible level I can use it for? because I don’t get high frame rates especially when I start turning on effects?

    • ChatWraithShichi

      Your intel integrated video has no v-ram.

      Your nvidia 840m has 2 gigabytes of v-ram.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      I know this is gonna sound stupid but I didn’t know CPU also had VRAM. That probably explains why my game performance is lower than I expected. No way to fix that right? 🙁

    • ChatWraithShichi

      It doesn’t. A lot of laptops’ CPU’s (typically intel) will double as a videocard. Because they’re not dedicated, they’re a lot slower. They utilize the system’s own RAM.

      Your nvidia 840 isn’t a CPU. That’s your videocard, with 2gb of integrated ram. The ram on your videocard is your v-ram.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Ok

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      this is all the specs shown when I view it

    • Psionicinversion

      click on overview or Driver… never used geforce experience so dunno what to look for but driver might tell you. Or find an info tab for graphics ri something it will be in there somewhere

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      okay turns out I don’t look for that in GeForce Experience and found it in Control Panel. No video memory came with my laptop whatsoever, any way I can install it?

    • Psionicinversion

      ah hmmm you got an 840M by the looks of things which isnt good. Is it a laptop your running on?

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Yes it is a Lenovo Edge 2 in 1. How bad is that? Also is it even upgradeable at all or I’m screwed?

    • Psionicinversion

      nope doesnt look upgradeable and yes youll be screwed, wont be playing much on that and seeing as its mobile version it might use your system ram as its vram

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      got no VRAM it turns out..have no idea if I even have any space to put anything more inside. Will I have to see my local tech store and have them tell me what more I can do. Gonna be a while before I get desktop plus I just got The Elder Scrolls Anthology so this sucks.

    • Psionicinversion

      probably not its most likely soldered to the motherboard as it uses 1GB DDR3 which is 1GB of your system RAM. Youve got 384 CUDA cores and basically you know the Nvidia Tegra X1 mobile chip they just released….. its about as powerful as that. They should be neck and neck so your screwed either way

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Sadly so. eventually though I think laptops will become superior to desktop but probably not in another 10 years.

    • Psionicinversion

      hahaha nope youve got limited space in a laptop which means limited cooling,, Maxwell mobile chips run about 25% slower than there desktop counterpart because of heat and all that stuff

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      PC parts are getting smaller. eventually they will be small enough the more parts can be put into a laptop the parts already nanometers small who knows how far they can go. even then, something will phase out desktops. even if it’s not laptops.

    • Psionicinversion

      they arent getting smaller as such, the transistors are getting smaller so they can pack more onto the die, thats where the performance increase comes from. Think they said 7nm is the limit for silicon before quantum tunneling effects come into play so theres heavy investment into finding new materials, there are some good alternatives but theres alot of problems with it like it only lasting a few hours before it disintegrates or manufacturing graphene properly . stuff like that. Next they may use silicene but i think either the structure breaks down or its because oxygen breaks it down, lots of problems to over come

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Perhaps we’ll reach a period where PC stagnates and then when the time is right they find a solution and turn it on its head and put PC ahead of the game again. Perhaps they’re iterating too fast for the available technology to keep up.

    • Psionicinversion

      no there arent iterating to fast, in fact with intels lead over AMD CPU’s the last years theyve slowed it down alot. PC will always be ahead of the game, fortunately by the time GPU’s shrink to that level they will of had the solution for a while will be mature and we’ll keep on owning

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Intel is better than AMD? Didn’t know that. Seems that way. Too bad my laptop won’t handle Star Citizen that’s one PC exclusive I’m dying to play.

    • Psionicinversion

      well it wont go gold till end of 2016 anyway and all the SQ42 episodes wont be out till about then to so you got plenty of time

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Don’t remember them giving a release window. Yeah I’ve yet to watch them better get right to it.

    • Psionicinversion

      estimated target dates, march for FPS module, april for social module, AC 2 summer, first episodes of SQ42 end of 2015 with PU alpha end of 2015. SQ42 episode installments about every 3 months and planned commercial release i.e. giold end of 2016… theres your timeline

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Ah ok I haven’t kept up lately with news on the game so I didn’t know that. It really is making me envious that I don’t have a more powerful rig.

    • Psionicinversion

      i watch EVERYTHING hahaha im not a star citizen obsessive i mean wallpapering your house with pictures of ships and concept art, spray painting your car with star citizen logo and bangal crrier on my roof and asking everyone to refer to me as captain or ill float them out the airlock is completely normal…. right?!

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Right 😛 at first I didn’t follow its development but after reading more on it my interest piqued.

    • Psionicinversion

      i only heard about it in 2013 and quickly backed it and watched every wingmans hangar, and stuff since that date. Its really interesting especially the The Next Great Starship competition because it gives you an insight in how all this stuff gets made. Like the shields, they had to do a shield mesh or something for everyship which isnt that good but with the new shielding where it wraps around the ship they only need one for everything, probably even if a space station required it as it wraps around the structure… the damage system its interesting to see how ideas get expanded upon which youd never really see. so yeah its good. Still not here fast enough though hahah

      Just get saving and by the time it release you should be able to get quite a powerful system for $1000-1200 or less than should max it at 1080p

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Yeah I first read about it in 2013. The game has an oddly low profile nobody ever talks about it. All the systems they’re implementing are interesting to say the least. Yeah still a long wait. Yeah I hope so. Gonna focus on optimum performance for 1080p and then work my way up after.

    • Psionicinversion

      theres lots of news coverage on gaming sites its just because the console guys refuse to acknowledge it exists because they know it will dominate all there shoddy games

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Yeah I read a ton everyday I could name like 10 different ones. Yeah tbh right now there’s not really many console games that rival the scale of Star Citizen.

    • Psionicinversion

      have you seen the protoype for entering quantum travel?

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      No. Last thing I saw was FPS module. I haven’t really followed since. I know they recently got more crowd funding.

    • Psionicinversion

      that little bit was awesome if thats the back drop to the universe it looks stunning

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      I’ll give it a look:)

    • Psionicinversion

      its like 4 seconds of pure class

    • Michael Norris

      When DX12 hits AMD Cpu’s will be a lot better.Intel chips will have the edge but you will get alot more out of AMD cpu’s.Right now Intel is just killing AMD,i have a FX8350 OC@4.9ghz it runs damn good still,but it eats up power and gets much hotter than Intel chips.

    • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

      Wow I thought the max was 4 GHz. Where can I find one that fast?

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      I’ll only be worried if it will use more than 6gb….. If that is the case I think it might be time for a TITAN X or two.

      Then again if DX12 holds true I won’t need more V-Ram as I’ll have 24gb!!!!

    • Psionicinversion

      you might be waiting sometimes for a game engine to do that but never know 😀

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      It’s not hard to do today….max out 6gb that is. Try to use the resolution scaler in BF4 and use the DSR festure with Nvidia and you can really get the usage up there.

    • Psionicinversion

      thats because your rendering at 1440p/4K hahaha

    • DarthDiggler

      @youdiemofo:disqus

      Yeah but it’s pretty much the same game I will play on PS4. Same guns, same maps, same vehicles, 64v64 maps…

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      I agree and that is great and all, but that is not my point….. If there are people that do not understand that one will have to pay for such features on the PC you’d be heavily mistaken.

      Comparing the fidelity of a 4k presentation in a video game on a PC and the hardware required to obtain it to that of a console is just wrong. Regardless of how YOU look at it there is and always will be sacrifices made on the consoles end…..always. Maybe next generation, but then there probably won’t be one as the fidelity will be easily moved to cheaper computers and mobile devices through future technological developments.

    • Michael Norris

      Eh i am not rich i will go with 2X GTX970’s in SLI.

    • Kyle Sprock

      3.5 GB x2Trolol’d 970’s are trash

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      24GB V-Ram!!!

    • DarthDiggler

      @youdiemofo:disqus

      How many un-modded PC games really take advantage of that much video memory?

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      The idea that there could be “modded” games breaking barriers is enough for me. Plus if it ever happens the sky is the limit…

    • DarthDiggler

      @youdiemofo:disqus

      The idea that there could be “modded” games breaking barriers is enough for me.

      And you hit the nail on the head. Good enough for YOU is different than what is good enough for ME. 🙂

      I just think PC gaming is very expensive overall and the platform is suicide for gamers who like to play multiplayer with a controller. Yes I am well aware of how accurate the mouse is. I came from PC gaming and moved to the PS2 (after I owned a PS1) and never really looked back. Sure I missed out on some good games, but I had plenty of great games to play on PlayStation.

    • DarthDiggler

      @psionicinversion:disqus

      If PC gaming is so awesome how is it you guys have so much time to comment on console gaming articles?

      All you PC Caliphate a-holes always have the same rap, don’t you get tired of hearing your own monotonous Bullsh!t?

      We console players like great graphics on the consoles we purchase. We don’t really care how great a game looks on your $2000 PC. We aren’t in the hardware arms race like you pimpled faced, pale, never been laid asshats that make up the PC Caliphate (notice I don’t call you elite).,

      So what you have a lot of money to blow on hardware, whop-te-doo! Have fun on PornTube with your fleshlight.

  • Guest

    Poor dying Sony and their overhyped brick.

  • Noble Alfred

    I just hope it runs acceptably. Witcher 2 looked pretty good but when it was initially released I didn’t feel that the specs required to run the game gave a stable outcome. Hopefully they optimize it better.

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      Yes…….., but we are now in the world of massive day one patches and “whoops….we messed up aaaaaaaaand we are so sorry we didn’t deliever wholly on our promises……” So it is all up in the air until launch unfortunately.

      It would be shocking to have a AAA IP deliver on everything promised/seen on day one. At the same time a huge bump in trust of ones developmental capabilities and overall trust.

    • Mark

      I hear u, but to be fair, CDPR did delay this a bit…….could u imagine if they released now? Lol

    • YOUDIEMOFO

      My goodness I could not imagine…… I think I’d lose ALL hope in future games for good.

  • kreator

    This is what they get for thinking graphics over gameplay.

    • Psionicinversion

      thats The Order not witcher 😀

    • kreator

      I up voted you but I was talking about Sony.

  • omarcominyo

    My PC is drooling in anticipation!!!

  • Demetrius Radford

    Keep the bone at 900p so we can keep superior frame-rate #welovexboxone

    • Psionicinversion

      thats why PS4 struggles on framerate cus they demand 1080p

    • Demetrius Radford

      ik. The devs shouldn’t do 1080p if its gonna impact framerate. the ps4 is more powerful but not significantly any game the ps4 can handle the xbox one can handle it just as good

    • Psionicinversion

      well end of the day all they will do is lower the PS4’s graphics settings until it hits solid 30.. its not like at them settings your going to notice much know what i mean

  • Tha Truth

    Oh dear…yet another game which can’t reach 1080p on Microsoft’s dying, overhyped waste of a machine. PC runs at 1080p with ease, PS4 runs at 1080p with ease but Microsoft’s last – gen lunchbox struggles just to get to 900p. How embarassing. With performance issues like this on every single multiplatform release it’s really no wonder that their dying console is at the bottom of the sales charts every week.

    Poor dying Xbone = lies, overhype and underdeliver and sales prove that.

    • Psionicinversion

      1080p with ease lmao, theyve even said PS4 is struggling to maintain 30fps and lots of frame dips but im sure if they lowered it to low gfx settings it should keep up just fine.

      Personally i think its another case of where the PS4’s CPU screws up the console lol

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      Someone didn’t read the article and looks like an even bigger idiot. It will be lucky to stay at 30FPS on a console as underpowered as the PS4. Never mind the xbone.

      PC really is the only way to play it.

  • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

    My Rig is ready for greatness to truly arrive.

  • Razma

    if ps4 can supposedly run it at 30fps and 1080p, then i have no doubt that any decent rig from the past 2-3 years will be able to run this at at least 50+ fps

    • demonsouls13

      Well you decent rig has to have at least 3gb of vram and thats not cheap:)

    • Psionicinversion

      no it doesnt 2GB is fine for 1080p high settings 3 is preferable but 4GB is fast becoming the standard

    • demonsouls13

      Test Far Cry 4 with gtx760 high settings oh i forgot you cant test anythink you just talk shit:).The fact is for 400 dollars rig Ps4 is masterpiece.I like sony and microsoft gave chance to play nice looking games with decent price thats the think what you cannot have with pc:s.Offcourse they could do real monsters with price of 1000 dollars but price of 400 dollars millions can have fun with consoles.

    • Psionicinversion

      shame PS4’s high settings are no where near to PC high more like medium settings hahaha

      PS4 isnt a masterpiece its just decent for its price and will always lag behind. Fair enough millions want an experience that just works just like the crapple phones but ones that strive for excellence just cant live for a $400 box of smartphone parts!!!

  • Jonathan George Anaya

    The PS4 actually DIPS below 30fps? What is this: 1999?

    • bardock5151

      1886.

    • Jecht_Sin

      If it was rendering at 900p on PS4 it would probably be 40-50 fps… 😀

    • TheWayItsMeantToBePlayed

      That’s not how it works. It will still be around 30FPS because of the low speed CPU cores and underclocked GPU.

      But then I’m talking to Sony’s willing PR volunteer who does it for free so I don’t know why I expect logic.

    • Psionicinversion

      doubtful tbh becuase the PS4 cpu sux

    • demonsouls13

      Well how can ps4 runs metro stable 1080p 60 fps?:).Metro still gives hard times for most of the pc:s:).Thats what we call optimization.You have understand what games are demanding and games that havent done well.I have gaming rig I7 4790k 970 sli but mostly i like play with Ps4.I have tested many games ps4 version and Pc version too.Only game that really shows the power of gaming rig is Ac Unity.2560x1440p almost max settings 90% running 60fps.Stable 30 fps is better than normally 30-60 jumping pc fps in demanding games.One think makes me mad is typical only pc user wich is so blind to so called master race that they dont even see lag of real AAA pc exlusives,with out consoles we probaply play games like goat simulator,Pc:s main problem is piracy and steam sales.Developers dont get much money from pc players,future of AAA games comes from Console Players,so dont talk thinks like pc kills consoles.You should be greatfull for consoles.With out Ps4 and Xboxone pc games still looked only little bit better and better Fps than Ps3 and Xbox360 games.

    • Psionicinversion

      The PS4/console version runs metro on the settings that the PC had when it first released. The new Metro 2033 has been updated with graphics effects and stuff that are not present on the console versions thats why its harder to run on the PC so yeah keep on trying dude.

    • demonsouls13

      We tested 2 ld tv:s Ps4 vs pc max settings 1080p,if you wanna see difference we will need your 40 x nördglasses:)

    • Psionicinversion

      wrong theres plenty of side by side comparisons where the PC looks significantly better but of course when your used to 720p crap looking games from the PS3 it may look on par with PC but nope its your eyes fooling you

    • demonsouls13

      You should look gamespot test Ps4 vs Xboxone vs Pc it makes you cry:)

    • Psionicinversion

      PC has better lighting and volumetric fog effects and stuff that the consoles dont have because there not powerful enough and i dont have to look at anything because i have a very good memory. Might even fire it up soon bought it ages ago but not played it yet. bet ill rocking max setting 1080p 60 while you get the peasant version

    • demonsouls13

      Well if you try to make 400 dollars Pc windows included quess what you get just web browser platform:)

    • Psionicinversion

      These consoles have actually helped with PC pricing actually because they ensure devs keep the games held back enough so that even cheap PC’s will reign supreme and will last the generation with ease. Especially with DX12 these cheap PC’s are going to rocket past the consoles. The main console advantage was that its low level, thats pretty much gone now

      you could build a PC for $600 that will last the generation and outperform the consoles by a decent margin while the consoles are around . As for windows get the cheapest windows 7 disc you can find and get the free windows 10 upgrade when it releases.

      Job done, in fact :-

      http://pcpartpicker.com/user/psionicinversion/saved/#view=T2v2FT

      $433 + $55 for win 7 home off ebay = $488 and i gaurantee that outperforms the consoles every time.

      with DX12 no strain on the CPU as it wont be pounding one core like DX11… consoles destroyed

    • demonsouls13

      Well that 2gb vram video card doesnt have chance against PS4:).One genius said nothing really big havent happened in computers after Great Amiga.I quess you wasnt even born when Amiga ruled the world of computers.1985 Amiga had real multitasking modern day Pc:s still have problems with multitasking:).I still have Amiga 1200,got to say Amiga was generations a head of is time:).You can ask old Amiga users how they dream to someone made Modern day Amiga.

    • Psionicinversion

      The PS4 will only use about 2-3GB for its textures anyway.. on PC we have 2GB in system RAM for the game exe and the 270x has 2GB ONLY for graphics so = 4GB

      PS4 has 4.5-5GB ONLY for the game so has to include the game exe, sound graphics etc etc etc all in that 1 little bit of ram

      Also 270x has 179GB/s bandwidth for itself but PS4 has to share that 179GB with the CPU as well so the more the CPU needs the less bandwidth the GPU has which is why they stay away from CPU bound stuff because it kills the bandwidth.

      I was born in 82 so technically i was but wasnt, not sure if i ever had a go on amiga… i had a spectrum zx with a tape drive haha and mate had a commodore think thats the furthest back i remember

      But yeah dosnt matter if PS4 had 50GB RAM its still extremely limited by its GPU

      PS4 1152 SP’s 800Mhz 1.84TFLOP
      270x 1280, 1+Ghz, 2.5TFLOP

      Thats why it beats it consisitently in fact a 750Ti is about on par with the PS4 tbh

    • demonsouls13

      Well we tested Ps4 against pc wich had fx4300 cpu gtx750 ti gpu have to said after many tests with different games pc didnt have any chance against Ps4 actually only game witch had chance against ps4 was battlefield4.

    • Psionicinversion

      yeah of course hahahah try the 6 core its mucho different, id never put a 4 core AMD in a system cus its crap. 6 core AMD minimum

      and if you see loads of benchmarks 750ti is on par and 270x dominates

    • demonsouls13

      1982 was good year i still have Vectrex from 1982:).We tested Ps4 against Pc wich had fx4300 cpu gtx750ti in many games like Far Cry 4,Tombraider,Metro,Watchdogs,Battlefield4 and so on,only game had chance against Ps4 was Battlefield4.We had really fun when we tested Watchdogs we also used Ps3 version and quess what when we downgraded pc version textures to low Ps3 version had more textures lol!!

    • Psionicinversion

      lack of VRAM? dsogaming uses a 690 dual core GPU 2GB ram each core and even at 4K when RAM should actually matter there is very little difference between 690 780Ti 290x etc so there doing it wrong.

      well whoever did that test is a waste of time cus they obviously havnt got a clue what there doing.

    • demonsouls13

      your teraflobs doesnt help in games because lag of vram:).Pc:s ddr3 wount help poor pc:)

    • Psionicinversion

      no game even remotely comes close to maxing the bandwidth of DDR3, latency is the main thing there. Also here’s are far far more reputable source for game benchmarks and testing and what a surprise the cards beat the PS4 everytime

      http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/nvidia-geforce-gtx-960,review-33113-4.html

    • Psionicinversion

      The xbox seems to be running very stable, its just sony wanting 1080p even if the console cant handle it. Remember a little while ago when they said Hardline will definately be 1080p more lies, its 900p and the p stands for pathetic

  • AsianGamer

    high end, huh? dammit

  • Ricoh123

    The Xbox generally has the most stable frame rates between it and the ps4.

    Regardless, PC gaming is a dam waste of money lol

    • Psionicinversion

      spoken like a true peasant
