Radeon RX 6800M vs GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop specs and performance

In our benchmarks, the GeForce RTX 3060 Laptop beats the Radeon RX 6800M in gaming performance.

Our database shows that the Radeon RX 6800M has a significantly 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. In addition, the Radeon RX 6800M also has a significantly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.

Furthermore, the spec sheet for both these GPUs show that the Radeon RX 6800M has significantly more memory with 12 GiB of memory compared to 5.97 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 Radeon RX 6800M.
