[FPS Benchmarks] Days Gone on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (95W) and RTX 3060 (140W) – RTX 3080 is slightly faster

Days Gone takes place in post-apocalyptic Oregon. After a pandemic, one big amount of humanity is turned into zombies. The virus is spreading fast and the main protagonist Deacon St. John is one of the guys who is trying to stop it. He is also searching for his wife Sara with the aid of his best friend Booser.

Days Gone is definitely a not-so-heavy game. You can play this game on a modest GPU like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti [Laptop, 95W] that is able to show more than 70 FPS on Ultra quality. Still, if you want to see a much higher FPS value on your high refresh rate display, a powerful GPU sounds like a good idea (if your waller is wide enough). For this article, we’ll compare two fast video cards – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (95W) and RTX 3060 (140W).

Verdict

So, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (95W) is just 5% faster compared to the GeForce RTX 3060 (140W) at least when it comes to Days Gone. The smaller sibling has a hefty TGP of 140W which helps a lot in games like this one. Still, both graphics cards are able to deliver good FPS value no matter the visual quality.
