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".

Titan RTX

Low Vs Ultra Titan RTX Performance Review

Getting the The Witness running while using a Titan RTX can see it could return a consistently high 197 frame rate. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

And so following those results you could of course play this at 1080p, but this GPU is somewhat wasted at that resolution. We would suggest running The Witness at 4K Ultra instead, where the Titan RTX would still get 64 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $39.05 per Ultra 4K FPS or $23.14 at 1440p Ultra.

This is a powerful graphics card for The Witness and we can certainly recommend it to deliver 4K screen res at ultra settings. Get a system with at least 8GB of RAM though.

In summary, the Titan RTX 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 141 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 108 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 64 FPS.
