[FPS Benchmarks] The Witcher 3 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (165W) and RTX 3070 (140W) – the bigger GPU is 26% faster

The Witcher 3 is one of the most successful PC games ever no matter the fact that it’s a single-player game – so, no multiplayer mode here. Despite its age, the title still looks good and it can give some new games a run for their money in terms of graphics.

The game is well optimized and you can run this title on Low with some low-end dedicated GPUs like the GeForce MX250. In addition, even iGPUs like the AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 (C6, Ryzen 4000, 35W) are just fine for this game (again, we are talking about Low settings).

So, let’s test something a lot more powerful with the aid of The Witcher 3 – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (165W) and RTX 3070 (140W).

Don’t forget to take a look at our Top 100 Best Laptops for The Witcher 3 list.

Verdict

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (165W) is 26% faster when compared to the GeForce RTX 3070 (140W). Not a bad result at all, the bigger GPU is definitely faster but the smaller GPU is a worthy competitor because it delivers enough FPS no matter the visual quality. Don’t forget the fact that in most cases, the GeForce RTX 3070 [140W] is a lot cheaper than its premium rival.
