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 5700 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5700 8GB Performance Review

Booting up The Witness with the 2 year old Radeon RX 5700 8GB looks like it will get a very strong 129 FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to The Witness rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the Radeon RX 5700 8GB will still get a solid 42 FPS.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the Radeon RX 5700 8GB 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 42 frame rate, whereby we see 70 frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 92 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 $3.79, 1440p costs $4.99 and 4K costs $8.31.
