In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has a 30 MHz higher core clock speed and 76 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the GeForce RTX 3070 providing 118.1 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 GeForce RTX 3070 has a 30 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2060 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce RTX 3070 providing 1.9 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 GeForce RTX 3070 was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2060, and so the GeForce 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 2060 has 1 MB more video memory than the GeForce RTX 3070, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 2060 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2060 has 448 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce RTX 3070, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2060 is massively better than the GeForce RTX 3070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has 5888 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB has 2176. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 is 10186 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 3721. The GeForce RTX 3070 having 6465 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RTX 2060 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

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

The GeForce RTX 3070 requires 220 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Zotac Gaming AMP Extreme 8GB requires 175 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 3070 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2060. The GeForce RTX 3070 requires 45 Watts more than the RTX 2060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce RTX 3070 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3070 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 1872MHz 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.
