Far Cry New Dawn’s gameplay isn’t that different when compared to the previous titles from the series – you can explore one huge open-world and there is a decent number of single-player missions and some other side missions as well. If you are a completionist, you can try to do all the in-game achievements, or maybe you can try the co-op mode and the multiplayer as well.
On the graphics side, the game isn’t the lightest on system resources but most of the mid-range GPUs will do the job if you aren’t too pretentious.
For today’s comparison, we have two super-powerful 2021 graphics solutions – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W).

|GeForce RTX 3070 [130W, Intel CPU]||112 fps||97 fps||87 fps|
At the end of the day, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) is 12% faster on average compared to its smaller sibling. Yes, the RTX 3080 is faster but the GeForce RTX 3070 (130W) looks like a better buy when you look at the end prices of the laptops on the market that are equipped with these GPUs.
So, if money isn’t a problem, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) is the way to go but on the other hand, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (130W) is the smart choice when it comes to price and performance.
