[FPS Benchmarks] PUBG on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3060 (130W) – RTX 3080 is 37% faster on Ultra quality

When it comes to battle royale games, PUBG is one of the well-known titles. Just like every other game from this genre, the main goal is simple – you have to survive while playing on a huge map full of other players. Pick some weapons, find ammo, and try to hunt the others – sounds simple but in reality, it’s not that easy.

However, one of the reasons for the huge success of this game is the fact that it’s a light title. Even the NVIDIA GeForce MX450 (GDDR6 / 25W) can show 92 FPS on Low settings. In most cases, a good mid-range GPU is enough for Ultra settings but of course, if you need a crazy amount of FPS a high-end video card is the way to go. For this comparison, we have picked two fast Ampere GPUs – the GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3060 (130W).

As you can see, the difference between these two video cards from Low to High isn’t that big. However, On Ultra quality, the bigger GPU is 37% faster and that is a hefty performance gap. On the other hand, if you don’t mind Medium or High details, you can save a lot of money if you get the GeForce RTX 3060 (130W).
