There is a new mod available for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt that allows AMD GPU owners, a performance boost. This will benefit only builds that are not bottlenecked by CPU limitations though.
This mod can be downloaded from Nexus Mods, and it uses the files from the latest AMD driver for Windows 10.
Instructions for installation of the mod can be viewed below:
Extract the 4 .DLL files to your Witcher3.exe location (e.g. D:\Games\Witcher 3 The Wild Hunt\The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\bin\x64). In
order to work they must be in the same folder as “Witcher3.exe”.
Simply remove or delete the 4 .DLL files from the Witcher 3 directory.
An AMD HD 7870 or higher GPU is recommended, to enjoy the benefits of the mod. For less powerful cards, the difference will not be as noticeable.
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.
