    That's in line with what AMD usually says about "Gameworks" features (HBAO+ and PCSS for example.) and how they can't optimize the code of it for their drivers so they recommend disabling those effects but it should still run acceptably, we'll see. :)
    (Since I believe this uses Direct Compute instead of CUDA.)

    That guy said that 2013 visuals can be achieved once you set the game's settings to Ultra, lies !

    Yeah.. that's not really true.. :D And main thing is that they removed those nvidia features which sucks.

    One more example of so called professional review.

    http://www.polygon.com/2015/5/13/8533059/the-witcher-3-review-wild-hunt-PC-PS4-Xbox-one

    This idiot complains how women are treated badly in this game (well women are treated badly even in reality), there is too much sex, and how there's no black people!?
    And because of this he gives this game 8 score!?

    Actually non white races exist in Witcher world in place called Zerrikania, and main bad guy in the first game is Azar Javed from Zerrikania.

    Professional!?

    Pretty sure we all managed to run HairWorks in TR though right? Even with the additional performance hit.

    That wasn't hairworks, that was TressFX by AMD. But I think it ran the same for both systems?

    Yeah, COD, FC4 is Hairworks.

    Is PhysX still in there?

    I'm sure it can be made to look like 2013, but probably the older 2013 stuff and not the "Nvidia tech demo" stuff.

    Meh, polygon. All of their reviewers come off as man-child like. Though there is one guy on there that is, what id call "balanced", hes got glasses but i cant remember his name.

    Don't think there's been a decrease in performance recently with Kepler in all honesty, it's just that the drivers since Maxwell launch improved the Maxwell performance and didn't really do much for Kepler, hence Maxwell pulling away a bit. It is perfectly understandable though that a new architecture will need a few driver batches to peak, nothing new. This is why every time I read a gpu review of a gpu based on a new architecture, I expect a 10% ish performance increase with future drivers. It's pretty normal.

    I think most with a single 970/980 will be disabling that feature anyway, it's for 970 SLI and above imo.

    No, that's just a bad review, agreed.

    I have owned both so I know pretty well how they perform. GTX 970 running at 1500 MHz is quite (which I consider similar OC to GTX 780 running at 1,2 GHz) a bit faster than GTX 780 at 1200 MHz while being way cooler and quieter. GTX 970 is a nice sidegrade if you don't have to pay (I managed to sell my GTX 780 for decent price), the performance advantage is usually 15-17% assuming that both cards are overclocked to close to max.

    Yeah, the 970 really comes to life when overclocked, hitting 1500mhz on the core is pretty standard and this is where these cards shine. At 1080p and 1440p, anything higher and the 780ti starts to stretch it's legs.

    Polygon (and Kotaku) is a cesspool of ball-less pseudo-man, SJWs and Feminazis.
    I removed them from favorites long time ago.
