[FPS Benchmarks] Overwatch on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (55W) – both perform well but the 75W GPU wins the match

Overwatch is a popular online shooter developed by Blizzard. The game has fun and challenging gameplay and the visual quality is good. Still, the game isn’t too heavy and in most cases, a decent mid-range GPU should do the job if you don’t need super high FPS values.

Speaking of FPS, even an iGPU like the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 [R4000/5000, 15W] can achieve 73 FPS on Low quality so, most of the nid-range dGPU should show much higher scores. For this article, we have picked two decent not-so-expensive video cards – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (55W).

Synthetic benchmarks

Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Gaming tests and gameplay videos (ext. monitor)

Overwatch Full HD, Low (Check settings) Full HD, High (Check settings) Full HD, Epic (Check settings)
GeForce RTX 3050 Ti [75W] 218 fps 182 fps (+12%) 139 fps (+22%)
GeForce RTX 3050 [55W] 232 fps (+6%) 162 fps 114 fps


Expectedly, the 75W GPU is faster. On Low settings both rivals are pretty close but further down the road, the bigger GPU is 22% faster on Epic quality thanks to its bigger TGP and more CUDA cores. However, the GeForce RTX 3050 [55W] performs very well for a GPU with such a degreased power limit – it scores 114 FPS on Epic quality which should be enough for the majority of players.
