[FPS Benchmarks] Warframe on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (55W) – the 75W wins but the 55W sibling is fast too

Warframe is a free-to-play game that can be downloaded via Steam. For a free game, it offers a lot of content, a decent soundtrack, and graphics, as well as some RPG elements. The good news is, that the game isn’t heavy at all. A low-end GPU like the NVIDIA GeForce MX450 (GDDR6 / 25W) can show around 250 FPS on Low settings.

For this comparison, we have prepared two RTX GPUs that are much faster compared to the abovementioned video card – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (55W).
