The Witness packshot image
The yet-completed version of the game allowed played to walk about the island from a first-person perspective. Throughout the island are blue panels that players can interact with; those seen in the demonstration were primarily mazes, requiring players to draw a line from a starting point to a finish point. Other panels showed more complex mazes to be completed. Completing each panel unlocked other areas to explore or panels to complete. Blow has stated that there is more to the game than these mazes, in response to concerns from players; to Blow, "the point is the magic that happens in the player's mind when he understands the subtle things that the mazes are saying - because the mazes aren't just puzzles, they are lines of communication that aggregate, become more complex and eventually say surprising things".

The Witness

GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB Performance Review

Playing The Witness on the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB, which is a 6 year old graphics card will likely return a reliable 64 FPS. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

The 35 FPS on 1440p Ultra setting is a great way of running this game with this GPU. You can still consider pushing it up to 4K, where it can get 29FPS on High 4K or perhaps drop it to Medium 4K, where it increases to 43 FPS. This comes in at $8.54 per frame at the GPUs release price.

To summarise, we feel that with the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB you can enjoy The Witness at 1440p resolution pretty comfortably. The graphics card is going to run smoother on High 1440p rather than Ultra, where it would be getting 35 FPS. But when run on 1440p High it would get 49 FPS, and at Medium 72 FPS and then on Low it would return 92 FPS. The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB would also be good at 1080p Ultra, getting 46 FPS.
