The Witcher 3 system requirements

The Witcher 3 system requirements are the same as they were when the RPG game first launched. However, developer CD Projekt Red has since introduced new enhancements such as ray tracing for those with a suitably powerful gaming PC.

Meeting the Witcher 3 system requirements should be a doddle for most systems, as the game doesn’t require the best graphics card to get up and running. In fact, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 or AMD Radeon R9 290 are plenty powerful to meet the recommended specs.

That said, you’ll need an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 or AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT at least to make use of the new Witcher 3 ray tracing update. CD Projekt Red has also implemented Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR to help boost fps too.

Upgrading to the best gaming CPU you can will also improve your frame rate, improving both your maximum and minimum frames per second. Just don’t forget to pair your processor with 6GB of RAM, so you can experience one of the best PC games as the developer intended.

While The Witcher 3 will run on a hard drive, we’d strongly recommend playing it on the best SSD for gaming you have to hand, as it’ll massively improve load times in the game.
