Nvidia Working on Driver Updates to Address Kepler Issues With The Witcher 3

Posted 1 year ago

Nvidia has announced that there are a few issues that affected Kepler GPUs  in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and is working on driver updates to resolve them. The Witcher 3 underperformed on non Maxwell GeForce cards so this is great news.

Whether the optimization updates will only offer better performance in Nvidia HairWorks enabled scenarios or if they will have better performance results in general, remains to be seen. The Witcher 3, is a quite demanding title, especially when the HairWorks setting is enabled, where most GPUs struggle to offer a smooth enough experience.

There’s a workaround on how to run HairWorks on AMD GPUs without crippling performance, which enables AMD GPU users to enjoy The Witcher 3 with the HairWorks setting enabled and actually getting better performance than GeForce users not using a Maxwell architecture Nvidia GPU.

There’s a way of improving the grass quality in The Witcher 3, as well as improving performance by making a few adjustments in the ini files.


The Witcher 3 is a gorgeous looking open world RPG that looks even better at higher resolutions.

We have recently provided some beautiful 4K screenshots of the PC version of the game as well as some 4K gameplay footage that showcases the beautiful graphics that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can provide at Ultra High-Definition at it Ultra Settings.
