[FPS Benchmarks] Metro Exodus on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (95W) and RTX 3060 (65W) – the 95W GPU is 15% faster

Metro Exodus is a great-looking game that offers thrilling gameplay and a decent storyline. While you’re roaming the depressing abandoned metro stations (full of monsters and hostile humans) perhaps you’re going to notice that the game is heavy and it needs powerful hardware for Extreme details

One interesting fact – no mobile GPU can touch the 60 FPS mark (at least the ones that we have tested so far), even the GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) can go as high as 55 FPS. In most cases, if you want to play with maxed-out settings you have to use DLSS or you can switch to High quality.

For this article, we have prepared two Ampere GPUs – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (95W) and RTX 3060 (65W).
