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 3060 Ultra

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra Performance Review

The experience of playing The Witness through a 0 year old GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra is going to get a very strong 171 FPS. That base FPS is at 1080p and High visual settings.

When looking at the recommended requirements for The Witness we can see that this GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra is far better served running it on Ultra even at 4K, where it would achieve 55FPS. But it could cost around $0 per FPS at 4K. Compare this to Ultra 1440p, which is a more reasonable $0 per FPS.

To summarise, we are in the realms of who gives a crap, when looking at game hardware demands, because the GeForce RTX 3060 Ultra card will play The Witness at Ultra settings almost regardless of the screen resolutions. 4K Ultra will get 55 frame rate, 1440p can deliver 93 FPS, and the lower resolution of 1080p comes in at 122 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.
