The Witcher 3: Blood And Wine - 4K GTX 1080 Gameplay Footage

The Witcher 3's Blood and Wine expansion adds a beautiful new area, Toussaint. Tom shows this region presented at its very best - at a 3840x2160 resolution (or 4k) at maximum settings on PC, as running on a GTX 1080.

4K performance on this card is 45-50fps region for The Witcher 3, and so we've capped our captures at 30fps.

    But can I run it on my 400$ laptop at 4k?

  • naaczej_25

    It's Geralt FFS not JERALT

  • Kevin S.

    What's with the stutter? Thought it was capped at 30, does it dip below?

  • Patrick Schwind

    And people say Uncharted 4 looks better 😁

  • Yujen Boston

    This is captivating! I mean, think of it - 22 years ago 3D era started with original Doom showing how fun 3d games may be! It's been 2 decades and a little more since then. Back then we used to run games at resolutions as low as 640x480 and even lower for those with slower machines! Now we're like 12 times that resolutions in terms of pixel count!!! 12 times, Carl! More than that - we don't necessary need AA any more! We can render the image as clear as a mountain creek with no AA blurring any pixels, messing the image quality and eating our performance! And 2-3 years from now - mid end GPUs are gonna be able to do that shit! This is so cool, I'm so excited to see how 4K goes widely spread across gaming community and getting into it myself!!!! That's crazy, I just can't wait for 3 years in the future, gonna go freeze myself somewhere...

  • The Most Wanted

  • cristi1990an

    And here I am playing the game on Low-Medium settings at 720p, struggling to get a locked 30fps.

  • c:

    0:36 dat amazing pop in and texture glitches

  • Tyler Rodgers

    is it just me or does the game not look that good

  • VexToast

    People 3 years from now will laugh at this video for how impressed we are with 4K gaming

  • nah

    A lot of stutters, don't think thats a smooth experience specially on fights.

  • LionHeart Games

    Holy shit! That game os unbelievable beautiful!

  • Mark Herashchenko

    4k monitor is so expensive that I.....i don't know...

  • God Samrat

    My notebook overheated while watching this LOL

  • Solid Snake

    game looks great to bad the gameplay is horrible

  • PhaseGamer

    is this modded skyrim? lol lighting, colors and poly counts look last gen

  • Doe Boy

    This game is so overrated and boring!.....look at those stupid blue Mountain same color as the sky and rivers!....everything either green or blue!

  • Amazing

    It looks really bad...

  • Callum Nicol

    Just imagine gtx 1080 in sli

  • Superproherohunter Hunter

    4k does not equal to good graphics, art and style is the most important thing

  • Vic Boss

    game does look beautiful but combat system, lip sync and lvling mechanic are boring,unfinished and not challenging at all...another prove that games today invest everything in look rather in gameplay imho

  • R.J. Poroner

    We hardly have the technology to run the games we are making at 1080p 60 fps yet we keep making games more demanding. Why do we keep pushing better visuals instead of better mechanics in games? I'm not saying witcher 3 has shit mechanics but they are not as deep as they could be. I understand the game achieves something on a greater scale and it's one of my favorite ones but it still baffles me.

  • TheVanillatech

    R9 480 is about the same performance as R9 390, only with better DX12 A-Sync compute (so faster in DX12 / Vulkan games than a 390). But it will only cost £160, which is £80 less than the 390.So a single 480 will not play this in 4K 30fps high settings. But two 480's in Crossfire will play this game in 4K just as fast as a single 1080, but cost 1/2 the price of a single 1080.Crossfire 480X cards will beat the 1080 and yet they will only cost 2/3rds the price of a 1080.AMD SUCK MAN!!!! WHAT THE FUCK!!! !FUCKING DIRVERS AND SHIIIT??? FUCK MAN THE HEAT IS UNBERABLE!!!

  • TheVanillatech

    Figured out how to cook eggs on my GTX1080!Play Minecraft for over easy, play Crysis 3 for hard boiled!"I'm so proud of you, son!" -GTX480

  • Motor78

    holy shit that looks insane I never seen a game so gorgeous

  • Rioplats

    Ooh, that's rather... Garish. Extremely pretty, but man, that saturation/vibrance kind of hurts my eyes.

  • ferradosa757

    My computer struggles just to show the video on 4K, let alone play the thing... :(

  • willsgace

    And here it is The Witcher 3 that we saw on the E3

  • Kamina

    1:36 just look at the kid to the left 10/10

  • Choco

    and here i am watching this @360p 😂😂😂😂

  • Ali Gafood

    it's like playing in a portrait. you see what I did there?

  • HappyToBeHere

    I want to see this on a 4K screen! 0_0

  • Thunder Force

    Big Pascal GP100 / GP102 graphics cards with HBM2 can't come soon enough.

  • TheLenny655

    imagine this game at 8k

  • Sean

    mountains and trees in the distance look like cardboard lmao

  • Solid Snek

    The people shitting on the graphics probably still play unmodded games from 2008. Glass houses

  • Beastgoesbeserk

    Im impressed on how good the 1080card can make such beautiful details on a far Draw distance!!

  • gouki4563

    You have to be an idiot to think MGSV looks better than the witcher 3

  • TNT Nitro


  • Ham

    Beautiful game, shit water XD

  • flanker22

    i know i'm gonna get alot of shit for this but honestly i think the lighting in the witcher games are shitty they look like what TV manufactures do and crank up color saturation and brightness while in store fronts just to make them stand out and not necessarily for good and accurate visuals. RDR even has better visual direction for their lighting and that's old as hell. Google "Red Dead Redemption: World in Motion."

  • Gamraoh

    4K gaming on YouTube 1080 video player... Yay I guess

  • Alec B

    My god does that grass look hideous.

  • Andarus

    When I got my 1080 Ti, I'll try it. ;) Until then I rock it at 1080p with my 980 :>

  • Zi X

    4:18 Dark Souls 4 Confirmed

  • GTS300Coupe

    Uncharted 4 looks almost as good and runs on a PS4. How is that possible?

  • B Mcginnis

    sooo glad I grabbed a acer xb280hk for ~$640 at release. Really getting my money out of this monitor! Looks like I'll be playing this when my 1080 gets here tomorrow!

  • Ano Nymous

    amazing visuals, what a vivid presentation!

  • Marcelo Tezza

    Interesting that view distance in 4k generaly is far better, but in this game looks bad, those mountains looks very low res, unexpected for me.

  • Von Vrga

    1:38 somebody help that kid pls

  • sum moner

    The things i would do just to be able to play this game in 1080p @ 60fps...

  • RobinDF

    I play the game at max settings, no AA, no Hairworks at 1440p 30fps. I have a 4K monitor but my single R9 390 simply struggles too hard with games like this at 4k. Not only performance wise, but the chip also reaches way higher temperatures than i'm comfortable with. 1440p is still gorgeous though.

  • Vitto Corleone

    It's 2 times of 1080 I guess reso of 4k

  • modder1975

    Amazing game. Horizon look dumb compared to this and came out even later.

  • ffx178

    I played it ok 1440p XD with all the settings high

  • XBnPC

    +Digital Foundry Any Chance of getting a comparison of an OVERCLOCKED 980ti, Titan X, 1070 & 1080? I'm pretty sure anyone spending that kind of coin on their GPU Wants the Best Performance....question is...Who's getting it?That'd be supremely good information for someone looking to purchase one of those GPU's..... thx

  • XBnPC

    Sooo.....I'm considering the 1070, but I MIGHT pony up for the 1080 if I can justify it.....but, how does this game run ACTUALLY MAXED OUT? Aka...WITH HAIRWORKS ON? I'm not spending $700 on a graphics card to turn my settings DOWN!

  • Ameer

    Looks like Skyrim's RealisticENB

  • faitj marjes

    vay ananı arvadını sikim manzaraya bak be

  • Lucas Féres

    Watching this while downloading the game... But i have to say, i still prefer playing 1080p at 144Hz instead of 4K and 60Hz. OIne of the things that still sets PC apart from the rest is the framerate. After you get used to higher fps there is no goin' back, it's absolutely outstanding and the smoother movements makes it more confortable to play for extended periods. But ofc, you'll need a damn good machine to mantain a solid 100+.
