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 RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 Performance Review

The experience of playing The Witness through a 2 year old GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 is going to return a consistently high 120 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 GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 would still get 39 FPS at these performance hungry settings and resolution. When considering the GPUs release price, this comes in at $0 per Ultra 4K FPS or $0 at 1440p Ultra.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 card will play The Witness at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 39 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 65 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 86 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
