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

Radeon RX 570 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 570 8GB Performance Review

Booting up The Witness with the 4 year old Radeon RX 570 8GB looks like it will deliver a solid 78 FPS. Note that those results would be running at High and 1920x1080 screen res.

The Radeon RX 570 8GB is going to do great at 1440p. We can see that in Ultra 1440p we will avg around 43 FPS. At High setting it gets 60FPS, but it is also capable of bumping up to 4K in High settings. 4K High will return 36 FPS or 4K Medium gets 53 FPS. Converting this into a cost per FPS we are looking at $5.00 on High settings and $3.40 at Medium.

In summary, we feel that the Radeon RX 570 8GB looks and performs great on 1440p resolution. So if you want a 1440p The Witness experience it will generate 113 FPS on Low 1440p graphics setting, 89 FPS when on Medium 1440p, 60 FPS when played at High settings and down to 43 FPS when turned up to Ultra on 1440p. You might still be looking for 1080p though to get some higher smoother FPS, where you could get 56 FPS at Ultra 1080p resolution. So something to think about.
