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 5900

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5900 Performance Review

The experience of playing The Witness through a 1 year old Radeon RX 5900 is going to return a consistently high 146 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 5900 overshadows the The Witness recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 48 frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0 cost per FPS and a $0 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the Radeon RX 5900 card will play The Witness at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 48 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 80 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 105 frames per second. For interest the cost per frame rate would look like this - 1080p Ultra costs $0, 1440p costs $0 and 4K costs $0.
