GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER vs GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER GPU is faster than the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop in gaming.

Our database shows that the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 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 RTX 2060 SUPER 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.

As stated by the manufacturer, the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 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 RTX 2060 SUPER is better than the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop.

Graphics card specifications

Core Clock speed and Boost clock speed directly influence gaming performance, typically the higher, the better. When thermals and power delivery allow, the GPU will raise its core clock to the boost clock for even more performance. A higher core clock speed may cause a higher TDP, however.

Memory is important for high resolutions and high resolution textures in games, if you're gaming at 4K or even 8K lots of memory is required. Too little memory may result in stuttering as the GPU tries to swap and fit everything in memory.

Memory bandwidth relates to the speed at which the GPU memory can be accessed. Higher speed is better as the graphics card won't need to wait for memory access before rendering a frame to the screen.

The memory bus width doesn't directly impact performance but, it the memory bandwidth. It measures how much data can be sent at one to and from the memory.

TDP (Thermal Design Power) is a measurement of how much energy is lost as heat when a GPU is running. This has an impact on system temperatures. If temperatures get too high (typically around 100 °C or 200 °F), the GPU will lower its performance in order to prevent damage to the chip. Adequate cooling is essential for good performance. If you're comparing two laptop GPUs, you may take this into account when choosing between the two, since a cooler laptop generally runs faster for longer.
