[FPS Benchmarks] Overwatch on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (165W) and RTX 3080 (130W) – the 165W rival is 18% faster

Overwatch is a successful Blizard multiplayer online shooter. The title’s gameplay is definitely fun and fresh, and it is challenging at the same time. Overwatch isn’t among the newest games on the market but it still offers good graphics and in addition, it’s well optimized and it’s not too heavy even on Epic quality.

If you aren’t too pretentious, a modern low-end GPU like the NVIDIA GeForce MX570 (30W) can deliver more than 80 FPS on Epic quality – not bad. For today’s comparison, we have prepared two powerful graphics solutions that are way faster compared to the abovementioned affordable GPU – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (165W) and RTX 3080 (130W).
