[FPS Benchmarks] Apex Legends on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (130W) and RTX 3070 (85W) – both are ready for 144 Hz displays

Battle royal games are pretty popular right now. Apex Legends is one of the good games in this genre and on top of that, it’s free-to-play. The game is based on Valve’s Source engine. The visuals are more than fine (this one definitely looks better compared to PUBG) and this game isn’t that light like other Source-based titles like CS:GO.

The gameplay is simple – you have one huge map that is full of other players as well and the last man standing wins the match. Graphically-wise, If you want to see 144 Hz with maxed-out visuals, your device must be an expensive machine.

Without further ado, let’s see how many FPS the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (130W) and RTX 3070 (85W) can deliver when it comes to Apex Legends.
