LowSpecGamer: running the Witcher 3 under the minimum specs

The Witcher 3 is a demanding game. Contrary to popular belief, it can be run on an old computer if you are bold and drastic enough.

Download the Witcher 3 config tool here: http://www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/12/?


The laptop used for this video has the following specifications:

CPU: Dual-core 1.7 GHz Intel Core i7-2637M

All gameplay footage is taken using an external video capture device.

    I find it funny what frame rate you consider "playable" because I just deal with the lag. some days it's completely unplayable though

    I bought my computer in 2002 for playing gothic 3, that ran well enough, though it was a big world. It refused to play Witcher2 though, there was only sound and no picture... or the picture came some seconds after the sound... if it didn't freeze... not very ideal in fighting... but I didn't know what to do and gave up. - Now i'm giving it a try with Witcher3 - wish me luck.

    The intro was flippin hilarious. Have fun with my subscription. Also can we talk about how amazing the ui program for the config files? I wish every game had a mod for that. I'm definitely gonna be downloading it.

  • Aj Jingco

    Rather buy an AFFORDABLE PS4 than having to play games on a low specs desktop PC or a low spec laptop with an integrated Intel HD as a video card!

    i bought a 2nd hand gtx 770 for $75 and i can play these game in ultra setting with hair fx turned off on 30-50 fps depending on the location.if you have a gtx 560ti or above gpu and you have a dual core cpu with 2 threads you should upgrade your CPU first because when i put my 560ti on my brother's 4th gen i3 CPU with 4 threads it still can play witcher 3 in midium to high with some minor tweaking on some unnecessary option like shadow which hit the FPS very hard without giving so much enhancement to the scene. allthough witcher 3 is still playable in core2duo it just stutters a lot but on i3 not only the stutter was completely gone it also giving me a much higher frame rate.

  • Nilay Sharma

    Could you do one for Paladins, the online shooter game

  • MichalPlays
