[FPS Benchmarks] CS:GO on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) – just a 7% difference

Even if you’re not a gamer, probably you have heard something about Counter-Strike. Even today, the oldest title – CS 1.6 has been played by a lot of players. The latter was released in 2000 – yes, it was more than two decades ago. And if you have a look at Steam’s “Top games by current player count” you’re going to notice that CS:GO often tops the chart.

CS:GO is a Valve game that uses Source engine and that’s why the title is not heavy at all. Some iGPUs like AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 (Ryzen 4000/5000, 35/45W) can run it at least on Low preset. This is a competitive game, which means that higher FPS will give you (probably) a better gameplay experience. So, let’s see how fast are the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) with the aid of CS:GO.
