The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt With Small Patch; Improves Performance on GeForce RTX 40

Last week's 4.02 update didn't live up to the expectations of gamers in terms of performance improvements in The Witcher 3. CD Projekt RED has released a minor patch aimed at owners of specific GPUs.

Last week The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt received a sizable update with the designation 4.02. The patch was supposed to solve some of the problems plaguing the game since the next-gen update, introduced to the game late last year. Unfortunately, last week's update still did not eliminate all the issue.

Answering the most serious allegations, today CD Projekt RED introduced a minor patch, aimed at owners of GeForce RTX 40-series GPUs.

The hotfix focuses on the problems faced by owners of the said GPUs using DLSS 3 technology, and the developer suggests that the game's stability is to improve.

However, in the comments under the Twitter post, a group of gamers appeared, suggesting that a similar patch should also be implemented for older chips in the RTX 30 and RTX 20 series, using previous incarnations of the DLSS technology. They point out that the performance and stability of the game running on older NVidia GPUs also leaves much to be desired, which they believe requires developer intervention.

It remains to be believed that a minor hotfix for the next-gen The Witcher 3 is just the beginning of further work towards a better optimized and more enjoyable game.
