The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt being officially available, we can finally propose some 1080p/60fps videos of the PC version with all settings maxed out. On our rig (see inside), the game runs smoothly except during cutscenes where we witnessed some frame drops once in a while. Also worth noticing is that every time we tried to play the fire camp cutscene on ultra (the one that follows the playable introduction), the game froze on us but the audio kept working, leaving us no other choice but to use the lowest settings just to get past it. It's quite odd and we hope it won't happen again later in the story. As you'll see, the PC version, though quite beautiful, doesn't look as impressive as we could hope a few months back. Aliasing is still quite visible and distant trees have a sort of pastel look that reminds a bit of GTA IV on X360/PS3. That aside, the game does look very nice, with very detailed environments and some spectacular views. Update: 4 videos added.

Join us for a new GSY Live tonight at 9:30 CET to see the PC version in action.
difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (24 minutes ago)
I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (27 minutes ago)
ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (9 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (13 Hours ago)
These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (16 Hours ago)
I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (16 Hours ago)
