GeForce GTX 1070 vs GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1070 GPU is faster than the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop in gaming.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has a slightly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. In addition, the GeForce GTX 1070 also has a slightly higher boost clock speed. The boost clock speed is the frequency that the GPU core can reach if the temperature is low enough. The allows for higher performance in certain scenarios.

Furthermore, the spec sheet for both these GPUs show that the GeForce GTX 1070 has significantly more memory with 8 GiB of memory compared to 4 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1070 is better than the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop.
