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 Max-Q

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q Performance Review

Playing The Witness on the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q, which is a 0 year old graphics card will likely get a very strong 116 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 Max-Q is far better served running it on Ultra even at 4K, where it would achieve 38FPS. 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, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding The Witness frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 38 FPS, 1440p will get 63 frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 83 FPS. Based around the GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0, 1440p frames cost $0 each and then the 4K costs $0 per frame.
