[FPS Benchmarks] Metro Exodus on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W) – the 130W GPU is 38% faster on Extreme Quality

The PC version of Metro Exodus is one of the heaviest games that are available on the market. Of course, the title is super-heavy when you apply the Extreme preset, if the settings are lowered, the game isn’t punishing your hardware too much. For the ones who always want to play with maxed-out visual settings, Metro Exodus requires something more powerful than a mid-range GPU for comfortable gameplay with bumped visuals.

So, for this article, we have prepared the GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W). Let’s inspect their performance.

Don’t forget to take a look at our Top 100 Best Laptops for Metro Exodus list.

Verdict

Actually, the two video cards are very close on Low settings but after that, the 130W GPU has the advantage that comes from the hefty TGP. On High, the bigger GPU is 18% faster and on Extreme, it’s 38% faster which is a mind-blowing difference. The 130W variant of the RTX 3080 is the first GPU that we have tested so far that is close to the 60 FPS mark on Extreme quality.

However, the 85W GPU isn’t a bad performer. You can’t expect too much from a high-end chip with just an 85W TGP in heavy games like Metro Exodus.
