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 GDDR6

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR6 Performance Review

Booting up The Witness with the 2 year old GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR6 looks like it will 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 GDDR6 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, this is an easy one, the GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR6 solution can play The Witness at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 39 frame rate, whereby we see 66 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 86 frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
