Most gamers play at least one of the following free-to-play titles: League of Legends, CS: GO, Dota 2, and/or Fortnite. Dota 2 is a good representation of the F2P titles as it is the most demanding game in the spectrum. The benchmark will give you an idea of the graphic card’s relative performance on other lesser demanding titles. Our benchmark sequence is based on a replay of OG vs. Liquid in the TI9 grand finals from the team fight that happened on 28:30 to 29:30. The Palit RTX 3080 Gaming Pro scores impressively as it breaks the 220FPS barrier of our benchmark run. It also maintains the same FPS range in 1440p and 4K resolution.
Rainbow Six Siege
Rainbow Six Seige is one of the few popular AAA games that’s still popular in 2021 due to its competitive gameplay mechanics. R6S uses the AnvilNext game engine, which is developed by the game’s publisher, Ubisoft. As of writing, Rainbow Six Siege is currently the most popular Tom Clancy title beating out Wildlands, Breakpoint and even, Division 2.

Shadow of The Tomb Raider
Shadow of The Tomb Raider or SOTR is the latest installment of the Lara Croft Tomb Raider franchise. Developed by Square Enix, SOTR uses the Foundation engine and is further enhanced by Eidos Montreal. STOR is also one of the first games to come out with Ray Tracing and DLSS support. The Palit RTX 3080 Gaming Pro manages to score 174 average FPS in 1080p, 166 in 1440p, and 96 in 4K. Turning on Ray Tracing does show a massive graphical improvement at the expense of a few FPS but turning on DLSS immediately doubled our frame rate.
Metro Exodus is the third Metro game trilogy based on Dmitry Glukhovsky’s novels. The game is a first-person shooter with survival horror and stealth elements. The post-apocalyptic game is using 4A Engine by 4A games. Released last 2019, Metro Exodus remains to be one of the most graphically pleasing and demanding games that’s popular to date.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare
Call of Duty is a popular FPS title dating back in 2003 and Modern Warfare brings something new to the table with its successful Battle Royale game mode and jaw-dropping Ray Tracing visuals. Call of Duty Modern Warfare is also one of the first games to support Nvidia reflex and the first game to support RTX, DLSS, and Reflex altogether. Turning on Ray Tracing reduces our framerate as usual but what’s impressive is when we turned on DLSS as it generated double the FPS compared to when RTX is turned off in both 1440p and 4K.
Valorant has remained the most popular FPS game since its launch and has made its mark as a competitive esports title. Being the FPS kingpin of esports, Valorant adopted Nvidia Reflex to offer an edge for gamers sporting Nvidia graphics cards. Valorant is a relatively easy game to run so turning on Nvidia Reflex only reduced our FPS by a few percentages but it is a tradeoff that most, if not all gamers would be willing to take especially when there’s massive perceivable game responsiveness that helps you land more headshots and win more rounds.
F1 2020 is the official video game of the 2020 Formula 1 and Formula 2 championships developed by Codemasters. F1 2020 is the twelfth installment in the franchise and uses the Ego Engine 3.0. F1 2020 is a good representation of racing games thanks to its realistic graphics and fairly demanding spec requirements.
Cyberpunk 2077 is arguably the most hyped game of 2020. Developed by CD Projekt Red, the dystopian open-world, action-adventure RPG sports is one of the most demanding titles to date. Cyberpunk 2077 also supports three Ray Tracing settings as well as DLSS which makes the game a great tool to measure Ray tracing performance for Nvidia graphics cards.
