[FPS Benchmarks] Cyberpunk 2077 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W) – the bigger GPU is 28% faster on average

Cyberpunk 2077 was released at the end of 2020 and it’s a long-awaited game. Aside from its a bit controversial debut, the game can be considered a successful title with an interesting single-player story and beautiful graphics that support features like ray-tracing and DLSS.

The game looks very good (the visual quality is okay even on Low) but if you want to see with every visual setting bumped to its max state (and with ray-tracing turned on) you’re going to need a high-end machine and maybe you’ll have to use DLSS as well.

Speaking of high-end hardware, for this article we have prepared two fast and expensive mobile GPUs – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W).

Don’t forget to take a look at our Top 100 Best Laptops for Cyberpunk 2077 list.
