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 1080 Ti

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Performance Review

The experience of playing The Witness through a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is going to get a very strong 151 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

But then the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 49 frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $14.27 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

In summary, if you are looking to play The Witness in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 108 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 82 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 49 FPS in Ultra as well.
