How well can the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile run games
14 Jun 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile is at running the more popular games of 2021. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. This graphics hardware can run 964 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile is running GUILTY GEAR -STRIVE- and delivering strong performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 168 frames per second. Comparing this to Dying Light 2 which is predicted to get reasonable results, where it averages 52 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Battlefield 6, which is predicted to run at 67 frames per second.

We move on to 1440p, and tested GUILTY GEAR -STRIVE- which delivered strong FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 338 FPS, Medium: 267 FPS, High: 179 FPS and Ultra: 128 FPS. Next we have Dying Light 2 running on GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile which is predicted to get L: 104FPS, M: 82FPS, H: 55FPS, U: 39FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Battlefield 6 is predicted to get L: 94FPS, M: 73FPS, H: 64FPS, U: 51FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the 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.

GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The following information is speculative until further confirmation is made for this new mobile graphics card series, which will be forthcoming shortly by Nvidia. The GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile is a Mid-level graphics card based on the Ampere Architecture.


Architecture
It equips a cut-down Ampere GPU Codenamed GA106 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 3840 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides next-gen consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It is equipped with 120 Tensor Cores for AI purposes.


GPU
The central unit runs at 900MHz and goes up to 1425MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of second gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s.


Performance
Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile suggests it will be as fast as the Nvidia RTX 2070 Super Mobile, making it a suitable graphics card for 1440p gaming.


System Suggestions
GeForce RTX 3060 mobile is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid to high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
