[FPS Benchmarks] Apex Legends on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (100W) and RTX 3060 (100W) – the bigger GPU is just faster

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale games alongside PUBG and Call Of Duty: Warzone. The gameplay goal is simple – a huge map populated with many players and the last man standing wins the match. Of course, you have to play strategically and you must scavenge for weapons and ammo in order to survive.

Visually, the game looks okay for today’s standards. It uses Valve’s Source engine which isn’t the newest one out there but it still can do the job. Apex Legends isn’t too heavy when it come to system resources but it’s as light as CS:GO for example.

Let’s see how fast are the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (100W) and RTX 3060 (100W) when it comes to Apex Legends.
