[FPS Benchmarks] PUBG on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W) – the 130W chip is 28% faster on Ultra quality

PUBG is one of the most successful battle royale games up to date and one of the most popular shooters in recent years at all. The title isn’t the most good-looking game in its genre (especially if you compared it to Call Of Duty: Warzone) but at least it isn’t too heavy.

In this genre, the gameplay is the most important thing alongside the FPS values. Speaking of FPS, let’s see how fast the GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W) are.

Gaming tests and gameplay videos (ext. monitor)

PUBG Full HD, V.Low (Check settings) Full HD, Medium (Check settings) Full HD, High (Check settings) Full HD, Ultra (Check settings)
GeForce RTX 3080 [130W] 237 fps 240 fps (+10%) 234 fps (+16%) 230 fps (+28%)
GeForce RTX 3080 [85W] 245 fps (+3%) 219 fps 202 fps 180 fps


On Low, both GPUs are very close but when you bump the settings, the 130W GPU is starting to gain an advantage because of its hefty TGP. On Ultra, the bigger video card is 28% faster which is a big difference. On the other side, the 85W sibling can deliver 180 FPS alongside maxed-out visuals which is enough for 144 Hz displays.
