[FPS Benchmarks] Apex Legends on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) – the RTX 3080 is 20% faster on Max details

The popularity of battle royale games is currently growing. In addition, Apex Legends is one of the most successful games in this genre. The title uses the Source engine. The graphics look good and up to date but on the other hand, this game isn’t as light as some other Source-based titles like CS:GO or Dota 2.

The gameplay formula is simple – a huge map populated with plenty of other players and the last man standing wins. Sounds simple but in reality, if you want to win you need to train a lot in order to achieve it.

So, let’s see how fast are the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) with the aid of Apex Legends.
