With the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, I wanted to take a look at how how the game runs on a variety of GPUs and display configurations, and quality settings. I wanted to see what frame rates you could expect with each combination of GPU, display configuration and quality setting. This would allow me to help gamers figure out what GPU they might want to upgrade to, and/or see how a display upgrade would effect their performance.
With the release of the AMD Catalyst 15.5 Beta driver, I was finally able to do that. I spent a few weeks testing all the different iterations, but publishing of this article took a pause as I dealt with the arrival of the latest shipment of WSGF Stands (and filling those orders).
Back at the beginning of 2016, Club 3D reached out to the WSGF about reviewing some of their products. We previously took a look at their USB 3.0 4k UHD Graphics Adapter, and their MST Hubs (video review and article). They also provided us with a number of video cards for benchmarking and testing - R9 295x2, R9 290X royalAce, and the R9 285 royalQueen. This helped fill out our GPU stack, as we already had a R9 290 and R9 280X on hand.
Many, many thanks to Club 3D for supporting the WSGF with these cards. Without their assistance, we wouldn't have been able to do this testing.
