[FPS Benchmarks] Gears 5 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (165W) and RTX 3070 (140W) – the 165W GPU is 54% faster

Gears 5 is very similar to its predecessor (Gears Of War 4) in terms of overall gameplay feel, graphics, and storyline. The good news is that the title is decently optimized and it runs well even on not-so-powerful graphics solutions like the NVIDIA GeForce MX350 (25W) – of course, on Low details.

On the other hand, the Ultra preset isn’t that light and if you want to see high FPS values you’re going to need something a lot more powerful than a mid-range GPU. That’s why for this comparison we have prepared two capable graphics chips – the GeForce RTX 3080 (165W) and RTX 3070 (140W).

Don’t forget to take a look at our Top 100 Best Laptops for Gears 5 list.

Verdict

Well, the results of the GeForce RTX 3080 (165W) left us speechless. At least when it comes to Gears 5, the performance gap between these two video cards is like day and night. The bigger GPU is 54% faster on average and it shows incredible performance – the only real downside of this product is its price. If the price tag of the GeForce RTX 3080 (165W)-based devices is too high for your budget but you still want a fast machine, the GeForce RTX 3070 (140W) could possibly be on your shortlist – it almost reaches 90 FPS on Ultra details.
