The Witcher 3 – How to Increase Performance on NVIDIA GPUs

Posted 1 year ago

A tweak for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been shared by Techjeep that helps to improve performance on NVIDIA GPUs (Kepler and Maxwell), which requires no addition of any other files. All that needs to be done is simply to delete a file.

Just head over to the folder where your game is installed and delete the file named APEX_ClothingGPU_x64.dll and then run the game.

This little tweak will offer a huge difference in performance, but keep in mind that it is only applicable on Kepler and Maxwell GPUs.

CD Projekt RED has provided some stunning wallpapers which can be found here. The highly anticipated Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Patch 1.05 is now live on the PC for Steam and GOG Galaxy users. The patch, which is about 248.4 MB in size, contains the fix for the XP bug.

We have recently reported that Marcin Momot, Community Manager and Coordinator for CD Projekt has stated that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt does not have a level cap, something that should really please fans of the game.

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 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 GeForce users not using a Maxwell architecture Nvidia GPU.

A set of beautiful 4K screenshots of the PC version and some 4K gameplay footage, demonstrates just how amazing The Witcher 3 can look.

The Witcher 3 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We will bring you any new information on The Witcher 3 as soon as it becomes available.
