    Dual Graphics in The Witcher 3

    flymanos

      Hi,

      Have someone tried Dual Graphics configuration in The Witcher 3? I personally have 7850k + r7 250 and I wonder if it will fly without larger difficulties. I know that the drivers hasn't been released yet, but I simply want to know what's happening now.

       

      If this thread would survive long enough I would greatly appreciate every opinion about Dual Graphics after release of the drivers.

       

      Thank you all

          The common verdict about dual graphics is to just forget about it and get an R7 260X instead. You'll have a single card that way more powerful than any potential dual graphics setup.

           

          But to anwer your question: as long as Crossfire isn't properly working Dual Graphics won't either...

              Email from CD Projekt Red Support this response is totally useless to me why are these company’s not working together as there are only two real GPU manufactures out there on PC??? This is the main reason the PC gaming industry is in such a mess. AMD really need to chance their drivers as we believe as and when! To drivers even if it a BETA not every month but just before a AAA release comes out or to fix issues as they arise . And for Nvidia drivers only make the effort for the latest GPUs on the market Kepler runs worse now to poorly written drivers or is it on propose? 

              I have just made the move from The GREEN Team a month ago from a Nvidia Titan due mainly from me purchasing a 40” 4K Display and it couldn’t drive this Resolution. So the only other Team is Team RED to a 295x2 much faster card from my Titan for sure but Drivers are so poor indeed.

              All we ask for are Drivers from both AMD & Nvidia that work for the latest AAA games on release date and Crossfire & SLI work without issues that is in a NUT shell! Not hard as we all pay a lot for our GPUs

              Hello there,

               

              we're still waiting for drivers from AMD since they didn't provide them yet. In contrary, nvidia released their drivers on the day of the release.

              We're sorry for the inconvenience, but the only solution for now is to play in HD and wait for the AMD drivers.

               

              Kind regards,

              Marcin Kulikowski

                  Hi, I am experiencing AMD Crossfire Issues with my 295x2 GPU when Crossfire is enabled I am getting treble screen flashing which make for a unplayable gaming experience. If I disable Crossfire the Flashing does go away but my system is running a 4K display and the drop in FPS is way too great. I am running the latest patch 1.04 which has improved performance but still not enough to run outside of crossfire. If this is a AMD GPU Driver still why didn’t you quality check The Witcher 3 running on either the 14.4 Dec 2014 or the latest 15.4 drivers so we AMD users could play the game using Crossfire as that would have been useful. I know the game is a Nvidia game but still should run on AMD hardware as well. So please can you confirm why crossfire doesn’t work thanks? Been waiting for the game for a long time… Mr (*********************)

                    Yes, neither beta 15.5 from amd or patch 1.05 from Project red have fix the dual gpu flashing problems. I try to ignore the flashing but its to immersion breaking to ignore.

                      Well as of the wonderful year of 2017 I can vouch for two 7870s running in crossfire can run The Witcher 3 very comfortably on a mixture of high and ultra settings at 1080p. I sit on about 40 to 60 fps most of the time and the cards don't get any hotter than 60 degrees.
