    Except, this is TW3 thread. :p

    Imo, both games have potential for greatness, but with TW3 beeing a good chunck ahead of DA:I. I for one can't wait to get my hands on both. :nerd:

    It looks that way. I can't understand how can small Polish team outbeat huge corporation like Bioware.

    They made a great game for a change... Bioware isn't even trying anymore, anyone can beat them.

    I'm sure it will, I just hope I'll have a couple of maxwells or whatever the top end nvidia gpu will be called by the time Witcher 3 launches so I can enjoy the FURRRRR. :D

    Of course it will run like crap since it has Physx. From the article:

    "Without Nvidia’s Fur Tech, the demo (with one wolf) was running at 410fps. When Nvidia enabled its Fur tech, the framerate dropped to 140fps. Yeap, we’re talking about a 270fps performance hit."

    "In fact, Nvidia demoed its Fur tech at a mere resolution of 1024×768 and the Titan card was able to only push 65fps when there were two wolves on screen."

    This is without anything else in the screen, only the wolves.

    PhysX has always been a performance killer, for a high-end game like TW3 it's only to be expected performance will die once that's activated

    Even if PhysX was available on AMD hardware, it's just so brutally demanding that the majority still wouldn't be able to run the game with it

    What you on about, thats the way it meant to be played *wink wink*

    But i agree with you, whats the point of all these performance killing features if the hardware aint around to support it. Sure could come back to play it in few years time, but with the industry the way it is, i have a big enough backlog as it is.

    Many folks here on about physx haven't even played anything recently with it fully enabled in the first place, the evidence is out there, borderlands2 physx & Metro LL physx is incredible, nuff said. bring it on more is what i say and it's happening too, Witcher, Arma, batman, the more the better.
    and if you don't like it switch it off, or you could troll forums all day moaning about this effect, even though it's toggleable.

    gtx 880 - done.

    Metro LL was great with physx (and without obviously) but Batman:AC and Borderlands where over done to the point of it just looking like exactly what they where - an after thought.

    Physx nearly always looks out of place and sticks out like a sore thumb, like a half arsed mod that hasnt been textured and shaded properly to mach the rest of the game art.

    Point is, id rather have a more complete game that hasnt had time and money wasted on a part of the game/feature that only one gfx vendor/consumer can use.

    and you say the same about TressFX too?
    with this thinking we'd still be on dx9, tessellation is gimmicky too eh?
    stereo 3d gimmicky also of course. :infinity:

    Actually... Yes.

    I like the idea behind them, but i dont like the current exectuion.

    I like them, just not what ive seen so far and the fact that Physx is a closed api.

    Though as far as 3d is concerned, ive never used nvidia 3d surround, so no comment.

    Should we start a new thread, see what everyones ideal use of these features (Physx,Tressfx etc) would be?

    A bit early for them to say that I think. The demo version was likely un-optimized or un-finalized since it's relatively new technology, so the final version should be much faster.

    How about use tressfx for fur simulation in amd gpus.
    Then both green and red users could enjoy furrr slideshow with lots of wolves,lions,tigers,baboons in it?

    Seriously, the fur would be interesting just like lara's hair but hard to get, (performance hit) also just like lara's hair.

    i'll say it again, but more concise
    i'd pay say £10 extra for a game that has physx or TressFX, however give me a game that uses both and i'll willing to pay even more, plus upgrade gpu if game requires it.
    basically: a game that has both would melt both the screen and the viewer, at times of course. i suggest for these two: Injustice Gods Among us. Eyes would melt.
    but sure furry animals sounds like a reason to upgrade too, the cutscene wolves in tombraider were stellar.(as was Lara's hair of course.)

    Driver maturity. future drivers for future games.

    Witcher games r always visualy stunning but for me the gameplay is so poor and limited. STORY is probably interesting but still, cant have fun with poor gameplay. that is FOR ME. probably peopel loves it. i tried to progress alot in W2. but the sword fight etc not responsive to me. maybe patches fixed that dont know.

    Besides all dragon ages are great, responsive. doenst look good as W2 but still more fun etc. but to ME. personal opinion.

    i will buy this and Dragon age 3 indeed. iam a gamer, why shouldnt i?

    Witcher 3 confirmed to have native 64 bit client.

    It's been rumored, but this is the first time I've seen a CDPR dev actually confirm it. Makes sense I suppose, as to realize their vision of an open World game with no loading screens or transitional areas would be extremely difficult to implement with 32 bit memory limitations.

    They also explained why the fur tech demo was running so slowly. It was an extremely early version that was unrefined and un-optimized. The final version will be much faster and much better looking.

    Also confirmed to use PhysX 3.x SDK.
