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 1060

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1060 while playing The Witness we quickly see it can get a very strong 91 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

At 1440p this graphics card will cost $4.98 for each of the 50 frames it can get on Ultra. But it will be a solid gaming experience.

To summarise, The Witness works very well with a GeForce GTX 1060. While it can comfortably perform at 1080p we know it is best served at 1440p resolutions and could possibly go up to 4K with some settings adjustments. Are you after bigger resolution with lower graphics quality or higher graphics quality and smaller res? Because here are a few figures that could help you choose your optimum Low Vs Ultra. 1080p Ultra setting: 65 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 103 FPS, 1440p High setting: 69 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 50 FPS.
