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 5800 XT

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5800 XT Performance Review

The experience of playing The Witness through a Radeon RX 5800 XT is going to return a consistently high 142 frame rate. Those frames are achieved on The Witness when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 5800 XT overshadows the The Witness recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 46 frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0 cost per FPS and a $0 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

In summary, if you are looking to play The Witness in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX 5800 XT can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 102 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 77 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 46 FPS in Ultra as well.
