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 Vega 64 Air 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB Performance Review

Getting the The Witness running while using a Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB can see it could return a consistently high 125 frame rate. Those frames are achieved on The Witness when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

Playing The Witness on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 40 frames per second at that top scale resolution.

In summary, the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air 8GB 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 89 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 68 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 40 FPS.
