Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile Performance Review

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile will easily meet recommended system requirements of games released today. This is a strong benchmarker on modern games and can often return excellent frame rates at high and ultra 1080p. But the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2022 popular games. This short GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 966.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile can run Dying Light 2 at 1080p and saw it return reasonable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 136 FPS, Medium: 107 FPS, High: 72 FPS and Ultra: 52 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that FIFA 22 returns a strong 127 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Dying Light 2 and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 104 FPS, Medium: 82 FPS, High: 55 FPS and Ultra: 39 FPS. We then checked the performance on FIFA 22 to see if that runs well. It was strong with a 96 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI Performance Review

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI graphics card, when running 2022 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 805 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI is running Dying Light 2 and delivering reasonable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 45 frames per second. Comparing this to Resident Evil 8 which is getting reasonable results, where it averages 49 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Far Cry 6, which is running at 44 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Dying Light 2 which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 91 FPS, Medium: 71 FPS, High: 48 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. Next we have Resident Evil 8 running on GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI which gets L: 99FPS, M: 78FPS, H: 52FPS, U: 37FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Far Cry 6 gets L: 88FPS, M: 69FPS, H: 46FPS, U: 33FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 980M 8GB SLI is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.
