    RECOMMENDED: 

    If you're not interested in using RT reflections & RT shadows (which you really shouldn't as RT shadows are severely bugged) , give this mod a try for lower RT cpu load thus higher fps when cpu bound. i also posted some benchmarks in the comments section of the mod. it adds between 5-20% to your fps depending on the number of npcs present in the area (less NPCs = more fps gained vs vanilla when cpu bound)

    Mod crashes my game after loading.

    EDIT: Managed to make it work by deleting and reinstalling RTXGI setting unlocker. Game finally completes loading then crashes again after walking 5 meters away from the save point.

    This might be the best mod regarding performance in The Witcher 3.

    Highly recommend. Went from 42-55fps to using the performance 55fps-74fps. The low coming from heavy populated city but that is expected.

    Can this mod be used together with improved RT shadows and reflection mod ?

    Incredible mod and works perfectly with the current version of the game (4.04).

    It worked wonders, I'm using the "performance" version without Reflections and Shadows as recommended and it gave me around a 20% fps increase to an average of 82fps as per my AMD software (usually between 80-100fps depending on location/activity) and I haven't fully optimized my settings for performance, but rather for looks. 

    I'll also be attaching a test video I made, as well as a small showcase which even tho my software doesn't allow recording over 1080p60fps still (I believe) captures the beauty of the game and its scenery, which is just incredibly enhanced by Raytracing. I have since recording this video(s) additionally optimized and modded my game enabling HW for everything except Geralts hair, as it sometimes gives it a yellowish tint when in shade. (I recommend checking out the last 30-40 seconds of both clips for some beautiful sunsets)

    Thank you for the mod and I hope others enjoy it as much as I do! :)

    am i the only one who experiences micro stutters with this mod? its so annoying, the fps boost is good but the micro stutters make it a useless mod.

    I guess this mod need an update because after installing latest patch for Witcher 3 there's no performance boost as you can see:

      No, this mod won't work without the RTXGI Unlocker Updater DLL. The creator of it, Emoose, has not been responding for months. Once the
      RTXGI Unlocker Updater is updated to the 4.04 game version, the optimized Raytracking INI and my mod, Aio RT Tweaks, will work fine

    It will crash on loading because the rtxgi.dll from the other mod requires an update.

      It won't crash enymore, emoose before 4.02 update or hotfix has change in his rtxgi update auto disable feature that disable loading dll if you have game updated to newer version than the dll file. That's why is hard to tell if it's working or not on first look, only from fps  difference when you applying rt tweaks, if you gain high fps then it's  working, if not then don't. I think now is most probably not working if  there is no difference in fps when using optimized rt ini, only thoes  ini changes suffer from lack of working RTXGI Unlocker dll.

    Is the mod still working for you guys after the 4.03 update?
    I think it is not working for me, probably because RTXGI Unlocker has not been updated.
