GeForce RTX 2060 vs GeForce RTX 3060 Ti benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU is faster than the GeForce RTX 2060 in gaming.

In our comparison, the GeForce RTX 3060 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. Despite this, the GeForce RTX 2060 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 RTX 3060 Ti has slightly more memory with 8 GiB of memory compared to 6 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.

In addition, the GeForce RTX 2060 has a slightly lower TDP at 160 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti at 200 W. This is not a measure of performance, but rather the amount of heat generated by the chip when running at its highest speed.

In conclusion, all specs and GPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti over the GeForce RTX 2060.
