    im a bit dissapointed.Expect way bigger gain in witcher 3 and ended gaining 10-15%.850M which is little slower than my 760M OC(+346/750Mhz) can play witcher 3 on some medium setting with 30fps and i cant achieve same performance :(.What surprised me is that i gained 10% in Far cry 4 :) but i dont know why witcher 3 is so slow.Im still around 30-35% behind the 850M performance.Maybe cdpr fault?all other games are same for me

    EDIT:i saw on geforce forum guys with kepler desktop cards reporting the same as me.They also expect way bigger gain than 10-15% so im not alone.Maybe its time for AMD

    yea that extra 15 percent can really make the difference though between choppy and smooth with hairworks, especially when you are in the 50 to 45 fps range on ultra on scenes with lots going on, can bump it up to 55 it becomes extremely playable

    I have been telling all of you with Kepler that you're not going to see the performance increases that you want. The game is optimized for the Maxwell architecture. Maxwell is more than just a few "efficiency" tweaks - it has a brand new tessellation engine (GM204 and GM200 only), better memory management, texture compression, etc.

    Hopefully nvidia will still be selling titan x on their website still on the 22nd of next month. I really don't want to mix different brands of cards if I can avoid it.

    yeah but why amd 7XXX cards which were released 2011 run this game really well and outperform similar kepler gpu's with a big margin?and amd is worse in tesselation than nvidia especially that old cards from 2011

    Maxwell's improved tessellation engine can't be it because GCN cards are worse than Kepler in that regard but still outperform them in TW3

    Edit: oops ninja'ed

    As for memory bandwidth, sure Maxwell is a bit more efficient but a 128-bit GM206 or 256-bit GM204 still shouldn't outperform a much bigger 384-bit GK110.

    10-15% is huge for a software optimization.

    Did a clean install of the new drivers on my G751JY but can't see any mention of G-Sync in the Nvidia Control Panel. Using the latest bios release so probably needs something else to activate it. Know that with older drivers the screen refresh rate went from default 60Hz to 75Hz before Nvidia fixed it.
