Here’s The Witcher 3 running at 8K resolution and 60fps on a PC way better than yours

2 min read


It has often said that beauty has always been in the eye of the beholder, which is kind of weird because I don’t remember those creatures from Dungeons ‘n Dragons being big into art.  Still, if there’s any modern day equivalent of fine art, it’s certainly The Witcher 3. CD Projekt Red created a world which looks utterly dazzling in an industry where even being a month-old after release is considered ancient.

A game of sweeping vistas, of mountains which look real enough to climb and forests that you’d want to get lost inside of. On console, it looks pretty damn good. On PC, it looks even better. Especially if you have the kind of rig that can squeeze every single frame and pixel out of it. This video from Thirty IR via Kotaku, is that experience, as the fellas behind it cranked everything up to the max, like a bad cartoon catchphrase from the mid-90s.

What you see below, is The Witcher 3 running at a resolution of 7680 x 4320, with options such as Nvidia Hairworks and HBAO+ activated as well. You’ll need a proper 8K monitor to see it in all of its glory, which I’m assuming applies to the two people reading this post right now. I bet the pair of you snort powdered dolphin for breakfast as well, but I won’t judge.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
