Witcher 3 Best graphics settings.

The Torrent
 Share

So I got Witcher 3.

My specs gtx 1060 laptop (Alienware 17)

i7 8750h

16gb 2666

120hz 1440p monitor with Tobii Eye tracking.

 

Some of my friends tell me to play this at a higher resolution (graphics settings, I’m guessing a 1060 can’t run it at 1440p) at 60fps (I do have a 60hz external monitor if that be the case I could use), some tell me lower resolution but play at 120hz (I was given some external software which can cap frames because I was told Witcher 3 can’t cap frames at 120)

 

how should i do it?

EDIT: I mean what do you guys prefer? Just curious

looking forward to your replies.

not optimal for me 

 

If you have the game and the hardware can't you just run it both ways and just choose which way you like it more? 

 

Anyway, a 1060 should give you about 40-50 fps in Witcher 3 1440p on max settings without Hairworks. Change that to "high" and you should be reaching 60fps.

 

The game is eye candy - I'd personally take 60fps with better resolution than 120fps with lower one. Bear in mind that a 1060 will not give you 120fps in Witcher 3 1080p on max settings.

Witcher 3 isn't what you'd call a "twitch game", you wouldn't benefit that much from 120fps.
There might be a bit of a smoother transition between frames, but for what is basically a "slow paced" RPG, eye candy is more appealing.

In any case, you have the game, it doesn't take that much time to test both options to see what you feel is best.

Ok thanks,

 

i feel I should have posted the thread differently:

 

i mean go to ask what do people prefer?

 

thank you for your answers.

You shouldn't get tearing at 60 FPS on a 120hz monitor. As far as graphics are concerned, a GTX 1060 should be able to max out Witcher 3 and average around 60 FPS.

https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/geforce-gtx-1060-review,23.html

 

That said, a mobile GTX 1060 should be right in that ballpark

 

Personally, I would download the Supreme to Extreme mod and The Witcher 3 HD Rework mod. Supreme to Extreme allows you to adjust your settings above the maximum settings in game, so you can adjust things how you see fit. Also, I recommend grabbing a custom ReShade for Witcher. Finally, setting your DX LoD bias to either -0.5 or -1.0 through Nvidia Inspector should help sharpen distance textures with no impact on performance (remember to set Anti Aliasing Supersampling mode to Replay_All for this to work).

Presets are a bit stupid. Just set it to high (or whatever is bellow ultra) and then tweak thr settings to see which of them make a difference in visuals (and dont kill the fps) and which ones are LITERALLY useless and bash your fps hard.

Ultra is stupid. ALWAYS.

I prefer 1440p at 90-110 fps. Tweak the graphic settings to be able to do so. Use this guide for help achieving the highest fps with the best visual fidelity possible... The Witcher 3 Graphics Guide. Just so you know, Hairworks OFF and Foliage Visibility Range on Medium to Low will give you major fps improvement right off the bat. As shown here:

Play around with the foliage visibility range setting.  It's the only one that actually makes a huge impact on FPS.  That said, stay away from the low setting, it looks like garbage.

 

That said, I doubt you'll be able to get above 60fps at 1440p, but the game should still play fine.

I won’t be using 1440p anyway it’s a 17inch screen so I doubt i’d tell the difference.

Witcher 3 doesn’t seem like too much of a fast paced game, so what do people think of using v sync with it rather than fast sync at 60fps? Do you still notice Input lag?
