A few days ago Nvidia reported on working on driver updates to address Kepler issues with The Witcher 3. It appears though, that Kepler owners will enjoy a performance boost in several games with the new driver.

Nvidia’s ManuelG noted that the upcoming drivers will offer a universal fix for Kepler GPUs that will boost performance in various PC games.

That’s good news indeed, especially considering recent allegations that Nvidia is crippling older GPUs performance in the latest games in order to promote its new Maxwell series, something that is quite evident in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, as the game runs considerably worse on Kepler GPUs compared to Maxwell 900 series.

workaround on how to run HairWorks on AMD GPUs without crippling performance, has also been made available, enabling AMD GPU users to enjoy The Witcher 3 with HairWorks enabled, while getting better performance than Nvidia GeForce users not using a Maxwell architecture Nvidia GPU.

A new mod for the PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been made available, named E3FX which as the name suggests it tries to mimic the E3 2013 trailer. You can check out and download the mod here.

CD Projekt RED has finally released the new update for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with the free DLC on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. The update includes a sexy new look for Yennefer and a new mission for Geralt.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had the biggest UK release of the year so far, crashing Battlefield Hardline’s week one sales by 53 per cent. 63% of physical sales were on the PlayStation 4, followed by 32% on the Xbox One and 5% on PC. The majority of PC sales were digital though. On top of that it seems that it managed to top both the Steam and Green Man Gaming charts as well.

The game has received another patch and the patch notes state an improvement of the texture rendering quality on High and Ultra settings.

The Witcher 3 Hunter’s Config is a nice little tool offering easy access to graphical options, and it’s certainly worth a look.

As we have previously covered a few adjustments in the ini files can improve the grass quality in The Witcher 3, as well as the performance. A set of beautiful 4K screenshots of the PC version and some 4K gameplay footage, demonstrates just how amazing The Witcher 3 can look.

We will bring you any new information on Nvidia and The Witcher 3 as soon as it becomes available.
