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 8GB Mobile

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile Performance Review

After playing The Witness on a GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile it will get a very strong 165 FPS. That base FPS is at 1080p and High visual settings.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to The Witness rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile will still get a solid 54 FPS.

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 118 FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 90 frames per second or even 54 FPS at 4K Ultra as the GeForce RTX 3080 8GB Mobile 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.
