The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings GPU & CPU Performance Review
Hot on the heels of Dragon Age II's somewhat disappointing March debut, CD Projekt Red has quenched the thirst of role-playing buffs with the sequel to its critically acclaimed RPG, The Witcher. Released on May 17, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings was greeted with much fanfare, earning a score of 88/100 on Metacritic and a user score of 8.7/10.
We had high hopes for The Witcher 2's graphical fidelity, though we were surprised and a bit disappointed to learn that it's strictly a DirectX 9 title. This has become somewhat of a trend for 2011's PC games, as you know Crysis 2 shipped solely with DirectX 9 support, though Crytek has promised to deliver DirectX 11 with a patch sometime this year. Unfortunately, CD Projekt also embraced another unsavory trend of late by shipping a bug-riddled product.
Considering the initial performance issues, we decided to delay our performance review until some of the major kinks were ironed out. That time has come and we're happy to bring you our full performance test, complete with nearly two dozen video card configurations running The Witcher 2 with various quality settings in three popular resolutions.
