In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX White 8GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile.

The RTX 3070 has a 540 MHz higher core clock speed and 92 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RTX 3070 providing 202.8 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 3070 has a 540 MHz higher core clock speed and 17 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RTX 3070 providing 50.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 3070 was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2060, and so the RTX 3070 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RTX 2060.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RTX 3070 has 2047 MB more video memory than the RTX 2060, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 3070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2060 has 288 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 3070, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2060 is massively better than the RTX 3070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX White 8GB has 5888 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 3070 is 10333 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 2304. The RTX 3070 having 8029 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 3070 delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RTX 2060.

The RTX 3070 transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2060. This means that the RTX 3070 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX White 8GB requires 220 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile requires 90 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 3070. The RTX 3070 requires 130 Watts more than the RTX 2060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 3070 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX White 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2170. Architecture It equips an Ampere GPU Codenamed GA104 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 212 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides the world's best consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: GA102 GPU The central unit runs at 1424MHz and goes up to 1755MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Third Gen GDDR6 through a 320-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX White 8GB suggests it will be faster than the Geforce RTX 2070 Super, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 3070 Galax EX White 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.Overview GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card for laptops based on the Turing GPU architecture. It is considered a great price to performance graphics card. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile supports real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 960 MHz and goes up to 1200 MHz in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 80-90W the RTX 2060 Mobile is averagely resource-intensive and will fairly significantly reduce laptop battery life at full load. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 6GB Mobile is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
