[FPS Benchmarks] Doom Eternal on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (95W) and RTX 3060 (140W) – RTX 3080 is 8% faster on Ultra Nightmare quality

Doom Eternal is a beautiful-looking game and it’s the latest installment that belongs to the popular series of games. That’s a Doom game so you can expect to fight tons of enemies at the same time and you can use a lot of different weapons to defeat your enemies – of course, one of them is the legendary BFG.

As we said, the game looks beautiful (even on Low which is a real achievement) and in addition, it’s not that heavy. For example, a not-so-powerful GPU with decreased TGP like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 [Laptop, 65W] can deliver more than 100 FPS on Ultra Nightmare quality. For our article, we’ll compare the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (95W) and RTX 3060 (140W).
