[FPS Benchmarks] For Honor on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3060 (130W) – RTX 3080 is 35% faster

Despite the fact that For Honor was released back in 2017 the game still looks decent and it offers a fun and kind of unique gameplay experience. In addition, the title isn’t too heavy so people with modest devices should not worry – For Honor is running with 32 FPS on Low on GeForce MX250 (25W) so if your device has a more powerful GPU it’ll definitely do the job.

Still, if you have a high refresh rate monitor and you want to see tons of FPS on Ultra quality, you’re device should be a powerhouse. For this comparison, we have picked one high-end GPU and one decent mid-ranger – the GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3060 (130W).

Gaming tests and gameplay videos (ext. monitor)

For Honor Full HD, Medium (Check settings) Full HD, High (Check settings) Full HD, Extreme (Check settings)
GeForce RTX 3080 [130W] 274 fps (+36%) 263 fps (+34%) 209 fps (+35%)
GeForce RTX 3060 [130W] 201 fps 196 fps 155 fps


Expectedly, the bigger GPU is way faster – it can show 35% more FPS compared to the GeForce RTX 3060 (130W). And that sounds normal given the fact that the RTX 3080 has a lot more “horsepower” under the hood. On the other hand, the smaller GPU scores 155 FPS on Extreme quality, and perhaps that is enough even for 144 Hz displays.
