Overwatch is one of the most well-liked modern Blizzard games. It offers great-looking graphics, decent sound quality, and the gameplay is challenging and fun at the same time. The title is decently optimized so most people can play it if they have something like NVIDIA GeForce MX250/330 (25W) or better (of course, on Low settings).
For this article, we’re going to examine the performance of the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) and RTX 3050 (75W). They both have equal TGPs so it’ll be easy to see what the exact difference is between the two GPUs when it comes to Overwatch.

Gaming tests and gameplay videos (ext. monitor)
|Overwatch||Full HD, Low (Check settings)||Full HD, High (Check settings)||Full HD, Epic (Check settings)|
|GeForce RTX 3050 Ti [75W]||218 fps||182 fps (+1%)||139 fps (+11%)|
|GeForce RTX 3050 [75W]||238 fps (+9%)||180 fps||125 fps|
On Low, the GeForce RTX 3050 (75W) is faster but probably that’s because of some isolated device-specific reason. Further down the road, we see almost no difference on Medium between the two rivals, and finally, on Epic quality, the bigger GPU is 11% faster. In this case, the gap between the two video cards isn’t big so if your budget is tight, the non-Ti version is a good option while the bigger GPU will give a bit more performance on Epic quality.
