[FPS Benchmarks] Doom Eternal on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (65W) and RTX 3050 (55W) – RTX 3060 is way faster

DOOM Eternal is the latest installment of the popular series. It’s a Doom game so you can expect beautiful graphics, an aggressive soundtrack, and very intense gameplay.  Of course, part of the package is the almost endless waves of enemies and some brutal-looking bosses.

The good news is that this game is well optimized (just like its predecessor – DOOM 2016). A modest GPU like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti [Laptop, 95W] is enough powerful to show around 133 FPS on maxed-out visuals. For today’s article, we’ll compare the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (65W) and RTX 3050 (55W).
