In recent years, the battle royal games are gaining popularity. Undoubtedly, PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) is one of the most popular titles from this genre. PUBG attracts new and existing players with its fun and simple gameplay – a big map, many players on it, and the last man standing wins.
Maybe it looks like a piece of cake but it isn’t. For surviving the round you have to be patient and you must scavenge for ammo and new weapons.
Technically wise, PUBG isn’t too heavy but if you need a 144 FPS or even more, well, you’re going to need something more serious than a mid-range GPU. Without further ado, let’s see how fast are the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3070 (130W) when it comes to PUBG.
