If you’re wondering if The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will fully make use of the spiffy hardware in your powerful gaming PC, the answer is yes, as explained by the developers during a livestream hosted by GoG.com.

The “Ubersampling” feature (which was included included in The Witcher 2 and made the game look really amazing, with options like 4x Supersample Anti-aliasing, at the price of a very large performance hit) is making its comeback, and will help people “max out their PC if they really want to milk their PC.”

The also explained that Nvidia Hairworks (that realistically simulate fur and hair)  “gives your PC quite a beating, but the hell, it looks amazing.”

The developers then mebntioned that they’re confident that, like it’s still done with The Witcher 2, gamers will use The Witcher 3 as a benchmark for their PC for years to come.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
