[FPS Benchmarks] Warframe on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (130W) and RTX 3060 (75W) – the 130W GPU won but the smaller one is fast too

Warframe is one of the good free-to-play games that can be found on Steam. This is a third-person shooter with some implemented RPG elements. No matter the fact that this is a 2013 game it’s still decently popular and it has been regularly updated with new content and bug fixes via patches.

The game is based on the Evolution engine and probably that’s one of the main reasons for the popularity of the game – it’s light, one of the lightest games that we have tested up to date. Most of the iGPU and low-end dGPUs on the market have no problem running this game at least on Low settings with 30 FPS. Speaking of GPU power and FPS results, let’s see how powerful are the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (130W) and RTX 3060 (75W) when it comes to Warframe.

Okay, the 130W GPU won the match but in this case, both video cards are winners. On Low, the bigger GPU can show 516 FPS while the smaller one isn’t slow by any means with its 469 FPS. There is no way to see the difference between these FPS results. On High quality, the 130W GPU is 18% faster but the smaller GPU performs well too – 267 FPS is good enough even for 240 Hz displays.
