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 XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB Performance Review

Playing The Witness on the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB, which is a 2 year old graphics card will likely get a very strong 139 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 XT 8GB will still get a solid 45 FPS.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding The Witness frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 45 FPS, 1440p will get 76 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 100 FPS. Based around the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $3.99, 1440p frames cost $5.25 each and then the 4K costs $8.87 per frame.
