NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti

► remove from comparison NVIDIA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is a fast desktop graphics card based on the Ampere architecture. It uses the big GA104 chip and offers 4,864 cores and 8 GB GDDR6 graphics memory. 

The performance in games and 4k resolution is slightly above a desktop RTX 2080 Super. For many games, the performance is sufficient for 4k and maximum details. Enabling raytracing however (without DLSS) will lead to a significant lower performance (although the RTX performance was clearly improved compared to the RTX 2000 series).

The GA104 chip is produced in 8nm at Samsung and the power consumption of the RTX 3060 Ti is specified with 200 Watt (RTX 2070 Super - 215 Watt).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU

► remove from comparison NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU (for laptops, NVIDIA_DEV.2583, GN20-P1) is a faster variant of the RTX 3050 mobile card and based on the GA107 Ampere chip. The chip offers 2560 CUDA, 20 Ray Tracing and 80 Tensor cores. The clock rate depends on the used TGP-version (from 35 - 80 Watt).

Unverified Clock Speeds
TGP (Power Consumption)35 W40 W45 W50 W60 W70 W80 W
Base Clock Speed (MHz)73591510431140122313501463
Boost Clock Speed (MHz)1035118512901410148515981695

The performance (of the high TGP variants) should be similar to the old RTX 2060 and therefore most suited for 1080p gaming with high detail settings. The performance is not sufficient to enable Raytracing in most games, but the Tensor cores can be used for DLSS in some games (and get a performance boost with a slight quality reduction). Beware, that the low TGP variants will offer a significantly lower performance.

The GA107 chip offers 3,072 FP32 ALUs of which half can also execute INT32 instructions (i.e. 1,536 INT32 ALUs). The RTX 3050 Ti however maybe won't use all ALUs on the chip. With Turing all shaders could still execute FP32 or INT32 instructions. The raytracing and tensor cores on the chip were also improved according to Nvidia. The Ampere chips also include an improved 5th generation video encoder (NVENC for H.264 and H.265) and a 7th generation decoder (for various formats now including AV1).

The GA107 chip is manufactured by Samsung in 8nm (8N), which is not quite able to keep up with the 7nm node at TSMC (e.g. used by AMD and also for the professional GA100 Ampere chip).
