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 2080 Super 8GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Super 8GB Performance Review

Running a GeForce RTX 2080 Super 8GB to play The Witness shows us that we expect it to return a consistently high 167 frame rate. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

Playing The Witness on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 54 frames per second at that top scale resolution.

To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. The Witness gets 54 FPS at 4K Ultra costing $12.94 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 76 FPS costing $9.20 per frame. Otherwise you can get some great performance by moving down a resolution bracket to 1440p. 91 FPS in Ultra 1440p costing $7.68 per frame or 1440p High gets 128 FPS costing $5.46 per frame.
