I wonder how well my 4GB 680 will handle this at 1080p.AmazonTreeBoa

4GB is overkill for 1080p.

God, I was hoping I could keep my 560Ti for 3 years, guess that's not happening.

Doesn't look very impressive.

#54 Posted by AznbkdX (3563 posts) -

Looks like I'll have to upgrade to a 7 series or AMD equivalent when the cards comes out. That's if I actually play big stuff like this any more. The screenie looked okay, but the game will probably be pretty heavy on GPU in real-time.

I haven't even played Witcher 2 fully yet. If its like Witcher 1 at all throughout, then it will be okay I guess. Its not my favorite RPG by any means though.

Not too sure why people are worrying about running the game.....

I don't think anyone is worried about running the game, but worried about running it well.

My 5850 is ready... for 30fps Witcher 3.
#58 Posted by RyviusARC (4809 posts) -

I am not going to upgrade until the Maxwell series is released.

I always thought it was a bad idea to upgrade right when new consoles arriving.

Usually the major leap is a bit after their release.

Like the 8800gtx this gen or the 9700Pro last gen.

TW2 wasn't demanding unless you use the ubersampling setting which is overkill.

Just use SMAA and remove the sharpen filter and the game looks great.

Looks great but not pre-rendered movie CGI quality.

Why though? That screenshot isn't particularly impressive, especially compared to what witcher 2 already looks like.

Thats my point there was only one setting in the Witcher 2 that wasn't needed but yet crapped over almost all gpu's(aka ubersampling). Heck a single 8800GT was able to play TW2 at medium settings at 1680x1050 with a steady 30 fps.

#62 Posted by Master_ShakeXXX (13361 posts) -

Better start saving up for a $5000 PC that can run it, lol

#63 Posted by AdobeArtist (23029 posts) -

My 2 GTX 570s just cringed.

And my single GT610 just... yeah, never mind :P

True, just saying that some PC gamers on here tend to want closer to higher results, which is a good amount of the things cranked up.

Thats not me who runs Witcher 2 at around medium on everything, but it seems I'm the outlier here on this thread.

#66 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38219 posts) -

I bet the engine will look bloody brilliant in motion.

Not a very impressive screenshot. Looking forward to Feb 5th announcement though.

I run TW2 maxed(besides Uber) with a GTX 560.

Maybe this will be able to use a 560 to max it, since a 560 was enough to play on high for just about every game out so far. Maybe not. I'm kind of betting the latter though, but I don't know how tough their new engine is on graphics. We will know in due time.

Same, I hope it's some footage of the game in engine, and not some pre rendered CG stuff like Cyberpunk was. That's not a bad thing, but I wanna see the new engine in motion

#72 Posted by Zophar87 (4351 posts) -

I max TW2 with my 460 with no issues. I should be okay.

It's been about a year and a half since The Witcher 2. I'd expect them to have an actual video game to show us by now.

Look's good but can't get overly excited over a single screenshot,hope to see a trailer with the new engine...perhaps at the ps4 reveal at the end of this month...

It's a low-res screenshot of their new engine, so not really. We've yet to see what the engine is and what it is capable of.

Probably capable of a lot better than that

Late 2013/2014 is gonna be a crazy for RPGS. Dark Souls 2, Witcher 3, Dragon Age 3, Elder Scrolls Online :o

And MAYBE Fallout 4.

I don't know about these two, Dragon Age has a LOT to make up for and Elder Scrolls online will likely be poor.

But the other two, whoa mama

It's a next-gen engine, so I certainly wouldn't be surprised. They go over a couple of things the engine will be doing in the article.

Best thing about it is that it's going to have good graphics with huge map, Witcher 2 was great but i expect TW3 to be more open and have even better graphics.

A more open game would be great. The Witcher 2 wasn't all that closed to begin with, especially in later acts, but more open and varied locations would be awesome.

With only 2GB VRAM I respectfully decline this offer.

Sad how outdated it's getting now. It's already outdated for a few games @ 1080.

Got a 5 year warranty on it. So if it busts I get another card lol. Maybe in 3 years or so. Thing is built really well and I got it maxed OC I can get.

Makes me mad Nvidia held back the good cards till this year.

#96 Posted by GarGx1 (3247 posts) -

Oh dear! Here's me trying to fight the urge and not get a new GTX 7xx card this year and hold off for an 8xx next year.

I'm reasonably sure my 590 will do fine but I do like to buy shinny new GPU's ;) I wonder if getting some more RAM will cure the hunger pangs?

#97 Posted by Fizzman (9884 posts) -

I expect my OC'd 680's to hold up just fine.

#98 Posted by AznbkdX (3563 posts) -

Jeez you guys and your fairly up to date rigs!

If I showed mine, it would be for a good laugh compared to you guys. :P

#99 Posted by RyanShazam (6498 posts) -
Project X looks better in my opinion...
#100 Posted by WTA2k5 (3997 posts) -

Kind of a shame they didn't use RedEngine 2 more. That was one fantastic looking engine. This looks better, obviously, but it seems like a waste of resources to put together a beast of an engine like RE2 for just one game.
