[FPS Benchmarks] Warframe on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (105W) and RTX 3060 (100W) – the RTX 3080 is 26% faster

Warframe is definitely one of the good free-to-play games out there. It offers decent graphics (for a free game), the gameplay is fun and it offers a lot of content, and the sound quality isn’t bad at all. Warframe isn’t a heavy game, especially on Low – an Intel UHD G1 (with dual-channel RAM) will do the job. If you have s super fast high refresh rate monitor (like 300 Hz or 360 Hz) then you’re going to need something a lot more powerful than in iGPU.

For this article, we have prepared two decent GPUs whit almost identical TGPs – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (105W) and RTX 3060 (100W).

On average, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (105W) is 26% faster which is a hefty bump in frames compared to the smaller sibling but the smaller GPU delivers enough FPS even on High – 277 FPS should be just fine for most gamers. Given the price difference between these two graphics solutions, the GeForce RTX 3060 (100W) is a great piece of hardware if you’re on a budget while the GeForce RTX 3080 (105W) offers more performance but it costs more.
