Settings used for The Witcher 3

 

In The Witcher 3 we see a 13-15% performance boost 2560×1440 and 4K compared to the Vega Frontier Edition air-cooled variety. Once again, that is a significant boost and one that I was surprised to see, honestly. It brings the FE to within 4-6% of the GTX 1080, still behind but close enough I think for a bit of software work to make an impact.

This table presents the above data in a more basic way, focusing only on the average FPS, so keep that in mind.
