[FPS Benchmarks] Overwatch on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (105W) and RTX 3060 (100W) – both are fast but the bigger GPU wins

Overwatch is a successful Blizzard online shooter that offers fun gameplay and good graphics. Overall, the game isn’t too heavy but for the ones who want to switch to the Epic preset they have to make sure that their devices have at least a decent mid-range GPU.

A powerful video card is a must for gamers with high refresh rate displays (perhaps in most cases) and that’s why for this article we have picked two capable NVIDIA Ampere graphics solutions – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (105W) and RTX 3060 (100W).

On Low and Medium, the difference isn’t too big – it’s hard to spot an 8% advantage between 291 FPS and 314 FPS. On the other hand, the bigger GPU is 17% faster on Epic quality – it looks like the GeForce RTX 3080 (105W) is getting faster when you bump the visual settings and that’s normal because it has a wider memory bus and more CUDAs.
