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 3090

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3090 Performance Review

Getting the The Witness running while using a GeForce RTX 3090 can see it could get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

But then the GeForce RTX 3090 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 71 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 $21.11 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 8GB system memory would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

In summary, the GeForce RTX 3090 is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for The Witness, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 157 FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 119 frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 71 FPS.
