GeForce GTX 1660 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti GPU is faster than the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop in gaming.

Our database shows that the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti has a slightly higher core clock speed. The core clock speed (or base speed) is the frequency at which the GPU core runs. This metric makes sense when comparing GPUs of a similar architecture or generation. In addition, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 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.

Next up, in terms of GPU memory, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti has significantly more memory with 6 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.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is faster than the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop.
