Gears 5 uses Unreal Engine 4 just like the previous title from the series – Gears Of War 4. This means that you can expect decent optimization and good graphical representation. The game isn’t too demanding for system resources – first of all, it looks just fine even on Medium and if you check the table down below you’ll see that a decent mid-range GPU can almost reach 100 FPS on Ultra.
Without further ado, let’s see how many FPS the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (130W) and RTX 3060 (75W) are able to show when it comes to Gears 5.
GeForce RTX 3060 variants
|GeForce RTX 3060 [130W]||GeForce RTX 3060 [75W]|
|Base Clock (MHz)||1387 (+70%)||817|
|Boost clock (MHz)||up to 1702 (+33%)||1282|
|Memory clock (MHz)||1750 (+19%)||1468|
|Memory size (MB)||6144||6144|
|Memory bus width (bit)||192||192|
|TGP (Total Graphics Power)||130W (+73%)||75W|
Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 3.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Results are from the Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmark (higher the score, the better)
Gaming tests and gameplay videos (ext. monitor)
|Gears 5||Full HD, Low (Check settings)||Full HD, Medium (Check settings)||Full HD, High (Check settings)||Full HD, Ultra (Check settings)|
|GeForce RTX 3060 [130W]||172 fps (+8%)||131 fps (+7%)||119 fps (+14%)||98 fps (+18%)|
|GeForce RTX 3060 [75W]||160 fps||122 fps||104 fps||83 fps|
It seems that both GPUs are fast and of course, the 130W rival expectedly wins. On the other hand, the smaller GPU is a good performer and as a bonus, it’s not that thirsty like its bigger sibling. However, we are glad to see that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (130W) is 18% faster on Ultra details which justifies its hefty TGP.
