AMD says Nvidia’s GameWorks “completely sabotaged” Witcher 3 performan

A war of words broke out earlier this week as the Internet decided (again) that Nvidia's GameWorks technology was messing with the performance of games running on AMD hardware.

GameWorks is a collection of propriety technologies and APIs that Nvidia offers to developers so they can include tricky effects like realistic hair, shadows, and destruction in games without having to create them from scratch. But GameWorks' capabilities are necessarily Nvidia-optimized; such code may perform poorly on AMD GPUs. The situation has led vocal gamers to allege that Nvidia is playing dirty, paying developers to ensure that code doesn't run well on non-Nvidia systems. Nvidia has denied the claims on several occasions, but they continue to be made.
