The Witcher 2 (DX9)

The Witcher 2 may be a DX9 based game but its graphics quality is beyond reproach. In this benchmark we take an area out of The Kayran mission and include one of the toughest effects the graphics engine has in store for the GPU: rain. Throughout this sequence, rain plays a large part but explosions, combat and even some sun shafts are included as well.

Please note that while the numbers seem to indicate that AMD cards win hands down in this game, the HD 6900-series cards have serious driver issues that caused noticeable stuttering in our gameplay sequence. This began with the 11.9 driver release and has continued through 11.10 and is still present in 11.11.

In the coming days we will post videos showing this but for the time being, take the AMD results in the graphs above with a grain of salt. While their framerates are good, the overall in-game experience leaves much to be desired.
