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 3GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Performance Review

The experience of playing The Witness through a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB is going to deliver a solid 83 FPS. That result is taken on High graphics and a screen resolution of 1080p.

While you can get a solid 45 FPS at 1440p, you might also consider pushing it up to 4K. Where it would get 38 FPS on High 4K and 56 FPS on Medium.

In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 59 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on The Witness then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 119 FPS or the Medium returning 94 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 63 FPS and then Ultra gets 45 FPS.
