Il lancio dell’update next gen per The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt it didn't go exactly as planned. If there seem to have been no complaints on consoles, in reality on PC the situation is quite different, so much so that some have had the audacity to compare this update to the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. CD Projekt RED was aware of these problems and in the last few hours has published a corrective patch, of about 3GB, which however does not seem to have resolved the situation.

As reported on Twitter, there are several users who continue to be unable to approach The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in next gen sauce. Among the main reasons that have unleashed the fury of the users we find crashes, lag and stuttering, all still present after the update which in theory was supposed to solve most of the problems.

“The patch did absolutely nothing. Your DirectX 12 implementation should be completely overhauled. The bottleneck is impressive,” read a tweet in response to the post announcing the availability of the patch. Obviously, not everyone is unhappy: those who own the latest generation hardware, equipped with 32GB of RAM and RTX 3080, are addressing users who are still experiencing problems, stating that their hardware configuration is simply to blame.

The patch did nothing. Egregiously low CPU and GPU usage at LOW settings with RT off, on an RTX 3080.

Your DX12 need implementation needs to be completely reworked. The software bottleneck is insane

This translates to around 60% or worse GPU usage in busy scenes at max settings

Net of these problems, the next gen update of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has still been able to satisfy the players. Not so much for the technical performance, but because it's a real and complete rework of the original version, which has increased resolution, graphics quality and much more. The hope is that the development team will be able to solve the various problems that are plaguing the PC version as soon as possible. in order to make this version even more solid.
