Radeon RX 6600 vs GeForce RTX 3050 benchmarks

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the Radeon RX 6600 GPU is faster than the GeForce RTX 3050 in gaming.

In our comparison, the Radeon RX 6600 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. In addition, the Radeon RX 6600 also 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.

Furthermore, the spec sheet for both these GPUs show that they both have the same amount of memory at 8 GiB. Memory size doesn't directly affect performance, but too little memory will certainly degrade gaming performance.

In addition, the GeForce RTX 3050 has a slightly lower TDP at 130 W when compared to the Radeon RX 6600 at 132 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 Radeon RX 6600 over the GeForce RTX 3050.
