[FPS Benchmarks] Battlefield V on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W) – the bigger GPU is 46% faster

Battlefield V isn’t that new anymore (it was released back in 2018) and its successor is on its way as well, but the fifth installment of the series is still a good game that looks just fine. The visual representation is okay even for 2021 and the game supports some eye-candy features like ray-tracing.

Battlefield V comes with a single-player campaign but the main event here is the multiplayer mode where up to 64 players can play on a single map. The title isn’t the lightest out there but in most cases, a mid-range GPU will do the job if you aren’t too pretentious. For the ones who want a lot of FPS alongside Ultra visual quality, we have prepared two high-end mobile GPUs for testing – the GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W).

Battlefield V Full HD, Low (Check settings) Full HD, Medium (Check settings) Full HD, High (Check settings) Full HD, Ultra (Check settings)
GeForce RTX 3080 [130W] 196 fps (+20%) 180 fps (+42%) 176 fps (+60%) 168 fps (+63%)
GeForce RTX 3080 [85W] 163 fps 127 fps 110 fps 103 fps


It’s a flawless victory for the bigger GPU. It comes with a hefty TGP and that’s its main advantage against the 85W sibling. The 130W GPU is 46% faster on average which is a serious lead. Still, the smaller GPU can show more than 100 FPS on Ultra which is okay for most gamers (probably).
