GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER vs GeForce RTX 3060 specs and performance
In our benchmarks, the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER beats the GeForce RTX 3060 in gaming performance.
The GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 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. Despite this, the GeForce RTX 3060 has a slightly higher boost clock speed. This is a frequency that can be reached if the GPU is cooled sufficiently and has enough power.
Next up, in terms of GPU memory, the GeForce RTX 3060 has significantly more memory with 12 GiB of memory compared to 8 GiB. Lots of memory is good when playing at high resolutions or with many monitors.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 3060 has a slightly lower TDP at 170 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER at 215 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.
In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER is better than the GeForce RTX 3060.
