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.

    and here I sit watching this on my potato computer, wanting 15 fps witcher 3. oh well

    Hey just a fair warning about this mod. If you have one system that can barely run it and one that can run it at max settings its going to mess with you when you set this up. I personally have 2 computers i play witcher 3 on. One is my desktop which has a ryzen r5 1600x and r9 nano, the other is my laptop which has an i5-2420m and a hd 6700m. When i followed the mods that you did for my laptop because it was synced with my desktop my desktop had the same changes for the textures and at ultra settings looked ugly as hell. Just a fair warning if you have multiple devices its a bad idea to have witcher 3 data sync with your other machines. I basically had to set it back to default on the witcher 3 mod in order for it to correct itself.

    I finished TW3 main story and most of the vanilla side quests, about 130 hours, in constant 11-14 fps at all-low settings. No regrets.(Couldn't play the DLCs though)I wish I'd seen your video before that. :(

  • Neten Dharan

    This in nothing. I ran this game at some 640*480 resolution, on like 1/3rd of my screen

  • karimkopra

  • Keihanzai

    i know that he had a very great experience in having a low graphic card that has to be tweaked for a high-spec game to be running, Great Video

  • Mr. Lotato

    "honestly I'm surprised it runs over 5 fps" it's only at 6 fps

  • RSplayerDarktracy123

    I'd rather get a new computer then mess with the files to make it work on an old computer, you must have a really old computer if you are not just doing this for fun


    Still looks pretty good. Wish i goumd your channel earlier.

  • TrilCa
