[FPS Benchmarks] Warframe on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) – both are super fast but the bigger GPU wins the match

Warframe is a well-accepted free-to-play game that can be downloaded via Steam. The game is a third-person shooter with some RPG elements (ok, kind of). No matter the fact that the title was released back in 2013 the game is updated regularly with new content.

The game engine is called Evolution and it still does the job for a free-to-play game. Its biggest advantage is that it’s not so heavy and you can play Warframe on Low even with dGPUs like GeForce MX250 or with iGPUs like Intel UHD G1.

Okay. It’s time to test the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W).

Verdict

First of all, both GPUs can show a crazy amount of FPS no matter the visual quality. Sure, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) is 22% faster on Ultra but the RTX 3070 [130W] can offer 340 FPS which looks like more than enough even for 300 Hz displays. So, as always, the choice is in your hands (and pockets).
