[FPS Benchmarks] GTA V on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W) – the 130W is 15% faster on Ultra details

There isn’t much to say for a game like GTA V. The game debuted for consoles in 2013 and it was released for PC in 2015. Despite its age, GTA V is still one of the most popular games even now. One of the main reasons is the multiplayer mode and as always, you can find tons of mods for the single-player campaign.

The PC port is really good and the game is well-optimized. You can play it on Low even with some low-end dGPUs like the GeForce MX250 (10W). For today’s comparison, we have prepared the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W).

GeForce RTX 3080 [85W] 182 fps 152 fps 99 fps 75 fps





Verdict

Well, except for Ultra quality, both GPUs are pretty close. On Ultra, the 130W rival is 15% faster which is a normal FPS gap given the TGP difference between these two video cards. Actually, both contenders are doing a good job when it comes to GTA V. You can save some money if you choose the 85W variant but if your wallet is big enough, the 130W GPU offers more performance in every other game on the market.

In the end, we can say that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (130W) brings better value to the table and it looks like a smart buy.
