[FPS Benchmarks] The Witcher 3 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) – the bigger GPU is 21% faster

The Witcher 3 is one of the most successful PC games of the past decade. Probably most of you know that the game was first released for PC and after some time the console version was available too. Because of this, the title is a pure PC game that is well optimized and it’s not too hungry for video memory. This leads us to the point where some inexpensive dGPUs like the GeForce MX350 or iGPUs like AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 and Vega 8 (Ryzen 4000/5000) can run the game fine (at least) on Low details.

The Witcher 3 isn’t the newest game on the market but it still looks okay for 2021. The title is popular even today because there are many visual enhancing mods as well as some others that add new in-game content like additional missions.

For this comparison, we decided to compare the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) using The Witcher 3 as a benchmark tool.
