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 16GB Mobile

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile Performance Review

The experience of playing The Witness through a GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile is going to get a very strong 174 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 16GB Mobile will still get a solid 56 FPS.

In summary, if you are looking to play The Witness in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce RTX 3080 16GB Mobile can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 124 frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 95 FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 56 FPS in Ultra as well.
