[FPS Benchmarks] Days Gone on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (65W) and RTX 3050 (55W) – RTX 3060 (65W) wins with ease but the RTX 3050 isn’t slow at all

Days Gone is a breath of fresh air in terms of story, gameplay, and even optimization. The game was firstly released for Playstation consoles but in 2021 the title debuted for PC and unlike some other ports, Days Gone is a well-optimized game and it’s not that hungry for system resources.

Visually, the game looks very good. As we said, it’s not a heavy game so you can play it with a modest GPU like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti [Laptop, 95W] with more than 70 FPS with maxed-out visual and that’s a good example of how light this game is. For today’s article, we’re going to compare two inexpensive NVIDIA RTX GPUs – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (65W) and RTX 3050 (55W). They both have low TGPs so let’s inspect their performance when it comes to Days Gone.
