HowTo / Notes

Maximizing performance

Currently with wined3d, The Witcher 3 is still affected by CPU-GPU buffer maps synchronization issue (bug #44315). It severely degrades performance.

Using dxvk instead of wined3d is the best course of action, since it performs very well, and also provides perfect rendering, as long as your Vulkan driver supports VK_EXT_transform_feedback extension.

What were the settings
by Shawn on Sunday January 10th 2016, 17:48
I ask because wine defaults to windows xp, and when I installed steam it was also on windows xp. Windows xp can not do dx10 or dx11 so I assume it would have to be set on vista or windows 7 inoder to work.
