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 980 Ti 6GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Performance Review

Getting the The Witness running while using a GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB can see it could get a very strong 106 FPS. Those frames are achieved on The Witness when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

The 58 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 48FPS on High 4K or perhaps drop it to Medium 4K, where it increases to 71 FPS. This comes in at $11.19 per frame at the GPUs release price.

In summary, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for The Witness, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 76 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 58 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 34 FPS.
