[FPS Benchmarks] Need For Speed Heat on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W) – a close call

Need For Speed Heat is one of the good games that belong to the popular series. Sure, it’s not a blockbuster like the Most Wanted installment but it offers decent gameplay, nice graphics, a good soundtrack, and of course – pursuits with cops.

The game is based on the Frostbite 3 engine and yes, it looks good no matter the visual quality (it looks fine even on Low details). The title isn’t too heavy but if you want more than 30 FPS on Low, you’re going to need at least something like the NVIDIA GeForce MX450 (GDDR6 / 25W). On the other hand, we have prepared the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3080 (85W) for today’s comparison.

Don’t forget to take a look at our Top 100 Best Laptops for Need For Speed Heat list.
