    In terms of Metacritic Witcher 3 was a 93, this is a 91 so far. Pretty comparable.

    You're out of touch Power, you probably know that though. 60fps minimum is a pretty reasonable desire.

    I used to be happy with games running like a slide-show but now I have experienced better...

    Yeah one of the reviews tested low/medium/high/ultra at the common resolutions.

    My 5700xt is gonna be lucky to maintain 60fps at 1440p medium unless removing denuvo boost frames by a large amount.

    Has anyone tested the performance without anything turned up max? There's probably just a few GPU heavy settings that need to be turned down a bit.
    Anyone remember witcher 2 ubersampling? :lol:

    haha, also known as the setting that showed me my GTX560 was faulty :D

    my card would heat up like a mofo and crash with it on, turned out the card was faulty and TW2 helped me diagnose it. what a fun game, but yet another example of turn the settings down stupid.

    I've got my 3080, 5900x, and 32gb of 3600mhz ram. I have a 3440x1440 ultrawide so I don't need to run 4k. Hopeful that I can get around 40-60fps with everything maxed, RT on and without using DLSS. See how things go I guess.

    Yeah, hoping the 5950x will carry me here since at medium 1080p, there's no difference between the 3060ti and the 3090 in those toms hardware slides using a 9900k.
    This thing stomps my 8086k for single core performance, so should be a nice boost anywhere thats cpu limited.

    Fingers crossed the right settings will still get the old 1080ti to handle 1080p/144Hz relatively well.

    If not, I'll try again in the new year after a few patches and come armed with a 3080ti or something just in case. bahaha

    yeah it was hilarious to think in 2011 CDPR offered a setting that offered 4* upsampling so if you were playing on a common monitor of the day at i think what 1680*1050 it was demanding 4 times that resolution to be rendered.

    I love melt your PC buttons. :D

    it's not out, the review embargo just lifted - reviews before launch are consumer friendly and help people decide if they want the game before purchasing it.

    a review before release is barely a review, what they review is like 10% of the game. i dunno, i think its pointless to have reviews this early.

    most outlets get the game with plenty of time, they want the reviews out with outlets having enough time but also not too soon and risk leaks outside the media circles (piracy).

    this is a completely normal release window/review cycle.

    I don't see the problem.

    If the first 10% is bad, then they deserve bad reviews.


    I would rather 10% game reviews then people buying the game based on 100% hype.

    It is, but everyone wants to be the first horse out of the gate for obvious reasons.

    Have you read the reviews? All of the ones I have read, the main story was completed and generally put about 30-50 hours of game play into it. If you can't review a game after 50 hours, something is wrong

    That is what turned a lot of people off KCD. They didn't bother to play past what is essentially a tutorial.
    The combat sucks!
    Did you meet a trainer?
    Trainer?
    Ahhh

    Yeah I agree it's pretty much useless to have a review at this stage, as reviewers can't really comment on bugs/glitches they assume will be addressed in the day 1 patch and beyond. They are just acting as marketing machines which I think is largely what reviews have become industry-wide: it's no longer about taking a look at a piece of software or hardware and assessing it on its own or compared to similar alternatives on the market, it's largely just paid shrills mirroring/echoing the marketing spiel the company wants. If a dozen different "influencers" all say the same thing in different ways, each of them have their existing fan base (which may or may not overlap) it just gets the 'hype' out there to the general public.

    If it bombs, CDPR could always fall back into blaming nVidia and AMD for the stock issues with their newly released video cards. If end users need a fairly modern beefy GPU to run this game, and it isn't widely available, then it could impact their sales. Likewise new gen consoles aren't even on retailer's inventory to be clicked on for pre-order/backorder or whatever to take people's money now with loose promises of delivery somwhere Q2-Q3 2021.
