[FPS Benchmarks] GTA V on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (105W) and RTX 3060 (100W) – the RTX 3080 wins but the RTX 3060 is a pleasant surprise

GTA V is a very popular Rockstar Games title and no matter the fact that it debuted for PC back in 2015, this game is a well know title up to date. One of the main reasons is the constantly updated multiplayer mode and the numerous single-player mods that you can wind on the Web.
