At this time, we do not know how much The Witcher 3’s next-gen new PC update will impact the game’s performance on the platform. Currently, PC’s new version of The Witcher 3 is said to be incredibly demanding, especially when the game’s new ray tracing features are enabled. CPU performance has been cited as a common issue for many gamers, and we hope that today’s update is able to deliver significant performance increases for PC gamers. That said, the fact that further updates are planned are a clear sign that there are more bugs and performance issues to be fixed.
