GeForce RTX 2070 vs GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop specs and performance

In our benchmarks, the GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop beats the GeForce RTX 2070 in gaming performance.

The GeForce RTX 2070 has a significantly 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 Laptop 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.

As stated by the manufacturer, the GeForce RTX 2070 has slightly more memory with 8 GiB of memory compared to 6 GiB. Memory size doesn't directly affect performance, but too little memory will certainly degrade gaming performance.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop is faster than the GeForce RTX 2070.
