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 570X 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 570X 8GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing The Witness with a Radeon RX 570X 8GB will return a reliable 78 FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

The 43 FPS on 1440p Ultra setting is a great way of running this game with this GPU. You can still consider pushing it up to 4K, where it can get 36FPS on High 4K or perhaps drop it to Medium 4K, where it increases to 53 FPS. This comes in at $0 per frame at the GPUs release price.

To summarise, while it's not always a sure thing, this GPU certainly seems capable of delivering FPS in The Witness. It feels that the Radeon RX 570X 8GB is going to be best run at 1440p for suitable frame rates, and while it still might struggle a little at Ultra 1440p, it will certainly do well in this resolution range. Here are some Low Vs Ultra frame rates that we can consider at 1440p. Low setting: 113 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 89 FPS, 1440p High setting: 60 FPS, 1440p Ultra setting: 43 FPS.
