[FPS Benchmarks] ARK: Survival Evolved on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) – both are fast but the RTX 3080 wins

ARK: Survival Evolved is a beautiful-looking game that is set on an island that is populated by prehistoric creatures and other humans. You have to build a base and use weapons in order to survive. The game has both single-player and multiplayer modes.

This is an Unreal 4-based title so you can expect decent graphics but this big open world needs a lot of system resources if you want to see it in its full glory. We saw that some powerful previous-gen GPUs like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q (90W) are having a hard time on Ultra for reaching the 60 FPS mark.

Without further ado, let’s see how powerful are the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W).

Verdict

It seems that 60 FPS on Ultra isn’t a problem for these powerful Ampere GPUs – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) is able to show 80 FPS on Ultra while the RTX 3070 [130W] reaches 66 FPS which is a good result as well. If you need a higher FPS just switch to High preset – the visual quality is still good but the FPS will be much higher.
