[FPS Benchmarks] Need For Speed Heat on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (55W) – the 75W GPU is 17% faster on average

Need For Speed Heat is a successful title that belongs to the popular series. The game has most of the “ingredients” for a good racing arcade title – beautiful graphics, a good soundtrack, a lot of cars, tons of customizations, fun gameplay, and police pursuits.

As we said, graphically-wise, the game looks beautiful thanks to the Frostbite 3 engine. Interestingly enough, the title isn’t too heavy. Need For Speed Heat looks like a well-optimized title and in most cases, a decent mid-range GPU is enough for 60 FPS on Ultra settings. For this article, we have picked two RTX GPUs – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (55W).
