Battlefield V debuted back in 2018 but when it comes to graphics, the game still looks beautiful. The Frostbite 3 engine has been updated with some eye-candy features like ray-tracing as well. People with low-end devices can play Battlefield V at least on Low settings – based on our own tests we saw that for 30-40 FPS on Low, GPUs like GeForce MX250/350 are fine.
The title offers a single-player story but the main event is the multiplayer mode where up to 64 players can fight on one map. So, we have two very powerful mobile GPUs in front of us – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W). Let’s benchmark them with the aid of Battlefield V.
GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 variants
|GeForce RTX 3080 [130W]||GeForce RTX 3070 [130W]|
|Shader units||6144 (+20%)||5120|
|Base Clock (MHz)||up to 1185 (+7%)||1110|
|Boost clock (MHz)||up to 1605||1620 (+1%)|
|Memory clock (MHz)||1750||1750|
|Memory size (MB)||8192||8192|
|Memory bus width (bit)||256||256|
|TGP (Total Graphics Power)||130W||130W|
Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Gaming tests and gameplay videos (ext. monitor)
|Battlefield V||Full HD, Low (Check settings)||Full HD, Medium (Check settings)||Full HD, High (Check settings)||Full HD, Ultra (Check settings)|
|GeForce RTX 3080 [130W]||196 fps (+5%)||180 fps (+18%)||176 fps (+18%)||168 fps (+23%)|
|GeForce RTX 3070 [130W, Intel CPU]||187 fps||153 fps||149 fps||137 fps|
On average, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) is 16% faster compared to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (130W). We are happy to see that the bigger GPU is 23% faster on Ultra Quality but on the other hand, it looks like both GPUs are ready for 144 Hz displays on High and Ultra Quality.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) is the logical choice for people with deep pockets but if you want the best bang for your money alongside great performance, the GeForce RTX 3070 [130W] is the way to go (if you have to choose between these two GPUs).
