I figured it's part of some quest, since it looks too elaborate to be random. But I guess they didn't expect players to explore random mountains :)

Comparing latest Mesa master with llvm10 and aco (this time in Velen, where it's apparently more demanding on the GPU than in Novigrad, despite common misconception):

llvm:



aco:



So basically the same.

Actually in less demanding environment (Novigrad, Golden Sturgeon) llvm is couple of FPS faster.

Shmerl,

in the last two shots, it appears ACO is missing some sunshine coming out of the trees.

I'll check. It could be a temporary change in the environment.

Looks fine to me (I didn't set up HUD for these, but I did switch RADV_PERFTEST:

aco:



llvm:



Light depends on the moving clouds, so it's always shifting.

Came across that area as well while exploring, and don't think I had come across it in a quest by the time I stopped playing. Memory may be foggy on that now, however. It was a really lovely area as well.

Came across another one near a key story place that you may not have reached yet (so I won't divulge much) that also looked pretty cool. Was a village of some sort I think. Several foglets were there, wildly out-levelling me. I managed to kill one after 15 minutes or so, but didn't bother to try to hack away at the others. Bonkers how little damage you do against red-skull enemies :D

I fully intend to go back to the game and play the expansions, but I've been too hooked on RimWorld recently, and have half an eye on PC upgrades.

I think I found that one too.

Spoiler, click me
Unless it's another place, I found such village and very high level foglets, on the slope of Aard Cerbin. I figured, it must be a location for some later events in the game, since getting to the top of the mountain was practically impossible because of them.

And it could be what She Who Knows (Ghost in the Tree) meant, when she said, "there are roads to Aard Cerbin".

A beautiful location (quite far North East East from Novigrad) - small creek with a waterfall:

Just FYI, to work around the hang, use this patch until it lands in upstream Mesa: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/mesa/merge_requests/2864
