NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop

The GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop is a GPU from NVIDIA released in 2021. This chip has a very good gaming score at 48% in our GPU benchmark.

The GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop has 5 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 328 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 192 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop GPU core runs at a frequency of 900 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1703 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop supports up to DirectX 12.00. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.60 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.

This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 80W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
