[FPS Benchmarks] Far Cry New Dawn on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (130W) and RTX 3060 (75W) – both are fast but the 130W GPU wins

Far Cry New Dawn gameplay formula isn’t that different when compared to the older games from the same franchise – an open world full of NPCs, missions, and you have a lot of guns on your disposal that can be upgraded further in the game. The world in this title is beautiful despite the fact that the Dunia engine isn’t that new anymore and it shows its age here and there.

The graphical representation is okay and the game isn’t the heaviest one out there. A mid-range machine should be fine even for Ultra details, but if you want more than 60 FPS you’re going to need a bit more firepower.
