[FPS Benchmarks] PUBG on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (95W) and RTX 3060 (140W) – RTX 3080 (95W) is 9% faster on Ultra quality

PUBG is definitely one of the most popular battle royale games up to date alongside Apex Legends and Call Of Duty: Warzone. Just like the latter two, PUBG went free-to-play. So, right now every one can download the game via Steam. It looks like PUBG falls short compared to its abovementioned rivals when it comes to graphics, Nope, the game looks decent but Call Of Duty: Warzone looks much better.

Still, PUBG has something up in its sleeve and that’s the fact that the game is light and can run on low-end GPUs if you don’t mine Low or Medium details. For example, you can play this title with around 90 FPS on Low settings with an NVIDIA GeForce MX450 (GDDR6, 25W). If you want to see high FPS values on your high refresh rate display you’re going to need something a lot more powerful. For this article, we’ll compare the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (95W) and RTX 3060 (140W).
