Players on a budget looking for a laptop with decent gaming performance have many options, especially if you’re looking for something around $ 1,000 or less. The launch of the RTX 3050 mobile GPU has thrilled us with the idea of getting more affordable gaming laptops. Still, a recent report from checkbook shows that the RTX 3050 may not be all it has.
According to his evidence, the Dell Inspiron 16 Plus with an RTX 3050 was surpassed by the Razer Blade 15 portable spring GTX 1660 Ti almost 11% in games like Assassin's Creed Valhalla and F1 2020 at 720p and 1080p in light and medium graphics settings.
Interestingly, the GTX 1660 Ti laptop followed the pace of a Dell G5 15 5590 with an RTX 2060 GPU in many of these confrontations. Suffice it to say; this is a shock. The 3050 has not had any better 1440p game, according to this report.
|GTX 1650 Ti||GTX 1660 Ti||RTX 3050|
|Speed of the main clock||1290 MHz||1500 MHz||1222 MHz|
|Increases the clock speed||1392 MHz||1770 MHz||1485 MHz|
|Transistors||3.3 billion||6.6 billion||13.25 billion|
|Manufacturing process technology||16 nm||12 nm||8 nm|
|Maximum amount of RAM||4GB||6 GB||4GB|
|Memory bus width||128 bits||192 bits||128 bits|
|Memory bandwidth||112 GB / s||288 GB / s||224 GB / s|
|TDP||75 w||120 w||75 w|
The reason for the lower performance is no secret. The RTX 3050 has a smaller number of texture mapping units (TMUs) and a smaller memory bus compared to the GTX 1660 Ti and RTX 2060. The GTX 1660 Ti is a cheaper card, but you get a lot more than you are worth your money would be an RTX 3050 in this situation.
The other two cards have the rate of 1660 Ti since they offer DLSS support, which uses super AI-driven sampling to increase game performance and increase visual fidelity, which is not reflected in these test benchmarks
To be fair, the Inspiron 16 Plus referred to is a 65w model of RTX 3050, which is quite poorly powered. I would also consider setting up the Inspiron 16 Plus more laptops to work with that can play some games.
That being said, the biggest story is that the old Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti budget GPU is still a pretty solid budget GPU, and in this case, it seems to perform better than Nivida’s more current budget GPU.
Either way, we look forward to seeing more high-powered RTX 3050s on more gaming laptops and seeing how they compare to some of the best gaming laptops.
