Witcher 3 System Requirements
One of the major concerns every gamer has especially when a new title is launched is regarding the hardware that can run it. CD Projekt RED have provided their own set of recommendations but it is challenging to relate that information with the latest hardware.
We tested Witcher 3 extensively on hardware ranging from Entry level to High end. Few things to be noted are:
- It is a very GPU inclined game with CPU not making a lot of difference
- Certain Graphic Settings such as Hairworks and Foliage Visibilty are performance killers & should be avoided on most configurations
