Was wondering what could of performance I could get on my laptop for this game. Would love to run it at medium settings, but I don't want it to lag too much.

Intel Core i7-720QM Processor1.6GHz w/ turbo boost up to 2.8GHz
4GB of DDR3 1066MHz SDRAM
ATI 5730 Graphics Engine with 1 GB DDR3 Dedicated VRAM

Thanks.

This should give you an idea:

My guess is that you'll be playing on medium settings.

Awesome, thanks much. Was hoping I wouldn't have to build a new PC to enjoy this soon-to-be masterpiece.

One day left. Great move with the free DLC, comparisons with DA2 are inevitable so yet again, advantage Witcher. Of course, all the free extras in the world wont help if the game sucks, so I'm really hoping they pull it off and score where it really counts. Very curious how it actually turned out, a lot of hype to live up to.

I just got a dlc code from zavvi.

This unique code will grant you access to the Finisher Pack for The Witcher 2, new finisher move animations and advanced fighting techniques motion-captured for this DLC.


Or so they say.

I also found the scans of the Polish Playboy Magazine with Triss and stuff. I doubt that I can put the link here, right?

I didn't post that because I was afraid of trouble...

Free DLC would be great if the launcher would actually let me download it. The game arrived today, and I all I get when trying to download Troll Trouble and the promotional DLC is a string of connection errors. I dislike it when games force you to use their program to obtain DLC rather than just using a browser.

As eager as I am to play this game I think I'll play Witcher 1 first.
When I played this morning I suddenly realized 3 hours had just passed by. This game is so immersive, especially the music.

Is anyone else using a Core 2 Duo able to get decent frame rates in this? I'm considering upgrading my graphics card but I'm wondering whether I'll still be held back by my processor. It's fine as long there aren't too many NPCs around, but the FPS dips to the low 20s in crowded areas (like Flotsam), and lowering the settings doesn't help at all. If it's bottlenecked by the CPU then upgrading will be pointless, as the game looks fine even on lowish settings. A CPU upgrade is out of the question, since that would involve changing the motherboard, memory and OS too. I'm interested to hear if anyone with a C2D and a better graphics card than mine gets markedly improved performance.

I'm running the game in 1400x900 (or whatever is the closest to that) and my setup is not entirely dissimilar:

Pentium Dual Core E6500 (OC'd to 3.6GHZ)
Radeon 4650 1GB
3GB RAM.

The game CHUGS at 1920x1080, but it seems to run OK at that resolution.  Maybe 15-20fps, which is more than playable.

In DPB's case, the fact that the GPU only has 512 mb really isn't helping. More RAM would also help (you really need at least 4 for good results in new games and your RAM probably isn't even DDR3). Both of you should consider an upgrade to RAM and a new GPU, I think it's a bigger bottleneck than the CPU in your rigs.

I'm using Vista 32-bit, I'd have to upgrade to a 64-bit OS to effectively use any more RAM. That, and RAM for Socket 775 motherboards is overpriced, and I can't say I've noticed much stuttering where the game accesses the hard drive, which would otherwise indicate a lack of memory.

Yeah, I'm running an old 32-bit and socket 775 system, too.  I'll likely build a new system once I get myself out of some debt, but this is what I've got for now, and it runs things OK.  Not great, but OK.
