[FPS Benchmarks] Need For Speed Heat on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (95W) and RTX 3060 (65W) – the 95W GPU is 23% faster

Need For Speed Heat is a good racing game that is part of the popular series. The title offers fun gameplay full of different kinds of races, fast cars, and pursuits with the police. This kind of gameplay never gets old when it’s mixed with a good soundtrack and decent graphics.

Speaking of graphics, Need For Speed Heat isn’t the lightest game out there but at the same time, it’s not heavy as Red Dead Redemption 2 for example. For 60 FPS on Ultra, a modern mid-range GPU should do the job but if you want more than that, well, you’re going to need more firepower.

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