[FPS Benchmarks] Warframe on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (95W) and RTX 3060 (65W) – the 95W GPU is 30% faster

Warframe is a decent game – it offers good graphics, its gameplay is fun and it comes with a lot of content. When you add in the mix the fact that the game is free-to-play (you can download it via Steam) it seems that it’s a good title and most people can enjoy it.

The game isn’t heavy at all, it runs well even on low-end dGPUs like the GeForce MX250 (25W) on both Low and High presets. Of course, if you have a high refresh display perhaps you’ll need a lot more FPS (120+). For this comparison, we have prepared two mid-rangers that can show a lot of FPS even on High quality (when it comes to Warframe) – the GeForce RTX 3060 (95W) and RTX 3060 (65W).
