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 3080 Ti

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Performance Review

After playing The Witness on a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti it will get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

But then the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 69 frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $0 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 8GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-8700K 6-Core 3.7GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

In summary, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by The Witness. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 152 FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 116 frames per second or even 69 FPS at 4K Ultra as the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti can handle this. It just comes down to your preferred resolution then tweak your graphics settings to deliver the desired effects, without a care for performance.
