The Witcher 3 PC Ultra Graphics Settings Runs At 1080p Resolution And 60FPS On A GTX 980 GPU
German publication Gamestar got to play The Witcher 3 at Ultra settings. The good guys reported their PC specs. Turns out, an Intel Core i7-4790 CPU and an Nvidia GTX 980 GPU can play The Witcher 3 at Ultra graphics settings, while delivering smooth 60 frames per second gameplay, all at 1080p resolution.
Yesterday, we had reported that The Witcher 3 won't have support for DirectX 12, which dampened the mood of some. However, if a GTX 980 is able to max out The Witcher 3 Ultra settings and give us a 1080p@60fps experience, CD Projekt Red must have done a fine job at optimizing the game for the PC platform.
Previously, CDPR explained the reasons behind which the PS4 and Xbox One versions of The Witcher 3 won't run at 60fps. PC gamers won't have any such restrictions, if they have adequately powerful hardware at their disposal.
