Except . . they're only demanding because the devs are incompetent.

We have modern games that "require" a 1060 , that don't look as good as games from 5 years ago.

The Evil Within 2 looks and runs better than The Evil Within 1.

I do think this happens, would like to not be jaded and say its just devs pushing graphics but we get some god awful games that just aren't taking advantage of the hardware you have to wonder sometimes.

what new games requires better specs than witcher 3?


in 2015, the top video cards were the 970,980

In 2017, the top video cards are the 1070, 1080.

What's the point of buying current year video card then?

Higher resolution ? Higher frames per second ?

Not on purpose, more a case of they have a deadline so they don't have enough time to optimise it properly.

TBH nier automata is quite a bit more demanding than witcher 3 GPU-wise. I can tell because I have rivatuner running in the background and currently, of the games I own, nier automata is the most demanding game I have GPU-wise. Anyways, the reason for this is because witcher 3 has a lot of flat trees that are not made using polygons, but Nier Automata trees are all real, made using polygons. The fake trees don't matter as much for Witcher 3 because you can't really change the perspective of the game, but in Nier Automata it has to allow for all sorts of perspectives so cardboard trees wouldn't work at all.

Yet here I am getting 60fps on high settings in Shadow of War with a 3770k and SLI 670s. So demanding.

Crysis 1 took another 2 generations of top tier GPU to max out on 1080p and maintain a 60fps. Yet you didn't hear mongrels blaming and flaming Crytek for it being 'unoptimized' back in those days.


Apparently you were living under a rock and missed the whole 'but can it run Crysis?' meme. And while it was graphically advanced for the time, yes, Crysis also wasn't particularly well optimized, not making good use of cores/threads in particular.

No, I just think a lot of devs aren't optimizing their PC ports as well as they could be.

But Evil within 2 still runs bad and only seems to uses 2 cores of your cpu to render most of the graphical effects in the game, thus creating a bottleneck for the gpu, also the game engine is crap by the way. Why didnt they use the much more better idtech 6 engine to create the game have left me puzzled.
