[FPS Benchmarks] Cyberpunk 2077 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (95W) and RTX 3060 (65W) – the 95W GPU is 16% faster

Cyberpunk 2077 debut was a bit controversial but after a lot of patches the game seems to be in a good state (ergo, playable). The title has a long single-player campaign which has a good replay value because you can play with different characters and that changes the gameplay experience as well some story missions.

Visually, the game looks good and DLSS and ray-tracing are implemented too. Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t too heavy if the RT features are turned off – a modern mid-range GPU should be fine for Medium or High settings. But if you want to play with ray-tracing turned on, probably you should use DLSS as well (and find which DLSS mode is best for your machine).

For this comparison, we have prepared two Ampere GPUs that support ray-tracing and DLSS – the GeForce RTX 3060 (95W) and RTX 3060 (65W).

Both GPU are showing some good FPS numbers but the GeForce RTX 3060 (95W) is 16% faster on average compared to the RTX 3060 (65W). The smaller GPU offers a decent gaming experience despite the fact that it’s slower than its bigger sibling – it’s fast enough to show 50 FPS on Ultra quality and 60 FPS on High preset.
