GeForce RTX 2060 vs GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop comparison

For gaming, the GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card is better than the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop in our tests.

Our database shows that the GeForce RTX 2060 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 also has a slightly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.

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