    Tried the 1023.5 DLL's in Witcher.
    Worked as good as the 15.5 for me, but in crossfire they have more flicker.
    So in crossfire the 15.5 DLL's are still the best I think.

    Hmm, they work fine with windows 8.1, should think they would work with windows 7 also?
    But as I wrote just now, these give me more flicker than the 15.5 DLL's in crossfire

    im using 15.5 and the 1023.5 dlls on win 7 64 bits and its indeed much better ,way less stuttering and smoother overall experience so far, near perfect.

    BTW im also using a MOD that came out to fix the EXP bug.
    here the link to it

    http://www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/119/?

    im using the added 20%xp on grey quests to compensate for all the XP i lost playing with the bug, hope this helps someone.
    CDPR are dragging their ass with the patch to solve this and its such a simple fix...

    Did you place the dlls in the x64 folder?

    Is there any difference in performance between puting 1023.5 DLLs in game folder and installing 1023.5 driver?

    Depends what driver you have under. Using beta catalysts like 15.5 for example gives you reduced drawcall performance. Whole point of these newer branch drivers in general is lower overhead over officially released drivers.

    I have 1036 driver installed. 1023.5 breaking CCC for some reason.

    Well I personally finished witcher 3 with 1023.5 drivers installed, but with 1036 dll's. I can't say for certain there was any difference betnween 1023.5 and 1036 dll's.

    I update the drivers from 1038 to 1023.5 and i see a great performance improvement, from 45 - 60 to 50-60+.
    I wish i can get 76fps(my monitor is overclocked to 76hz) but i need to lower the graphics so much

    I seem to have a few extra frames using the 1023.5 dlls combined with the 15.5 actual driver.. Where my current save is anyways... Interesting!

    Why does that 1023.5 dlls work by everyone except me? :p

    I have to remove aticfx64.dll and atidxx64.dll or the game will not start. Obviously i need those dlls for the witcher 3, because it's a 64 bit game.

    Anyone know what could be the problem?

    Hi Rex, I found I had to remove all except the aticfx64.dll for it to work. Not sure if that is correct procedure for us crossfire users but hey it definitely helps with the framepacing. I was getting microstutter every 5-10 seconds and it seemed to eliminate that completely. However still get hitches when lots of NPC's load at once but don't think we can do much about that. Does seem to add a little bit ore flicker but it seems to be temporary on my PC and I find it is still playable.

    Removing atidxx64.dll did the trick. All the other DLLS are still in the x64 folder. I don't know if the game runs any better. I will test this tommorow after work.

    Yeah, finally patch 1.05 is here and it broke CrossFire :D

    EDIT: false alarm. Somehow the patch changed my post processing settings and put AA back on. So don't panic if CrossFire doesn't work after you load the game :p

    I just played for a bit with the 1.05 patch, didn't experience more flickering in that short time. Almost non in gameplay, but still pretty bad in parts of character part and bartering part

    AA isn't causing flickering in CrossFire, it only has a huge impact on performance (lower fps than with one card).
