RTX 4050 or 3060? Help me choose? Posted on May 21, 2023 by Anonymous RTX 4050 or 3060? Help me choose Gankerbros
4050 laptops probably come with a more recent CPU compared to 3060 laptops so go for those
Assuming prices are similar
and recent laptops like the new asus gaming has better build and thermal system compared to older ones
>4050 or 3060
Having absolute shit graphics cards isn't going to prevent the thing from going into nuclear meltdown after 15 minutes.
4050, power budget matters a lot more on a laptop
so 4050 performs worse than the 3060?
There is nothing wrong with running your CPU at 93c
There wouldn't be if it weren't right next to an explosive.
getting a pc and a cheaper work laptop
vs getting the laptop with the heat of the sun + low battery and barely run stuffs other than common multiplayer games
I move around a lot so if I get a desktop I wouldn't get many chances to use it
For me it's PC + a Mac
a mac will fight with anything else you are using which is not apple. mac os looks like shit on any non-apple monitor because of the lack of dpi scaling and the scroll wheel and side buttons on your mouse will not work correctly.
Get a ps5 and a cheap non gaming laptop for web stuff.
I got a 2022 Zephyrus G14 but it's GAYmd if that's a problem for you
Just assemble a desktop with the upcoming RTX 4050 gpu, pair it with a smol 720p TV and be happy
Not OP but once you add in mobo, ram, storage, cooling, monitor, etc shit will go over some of these prices. That said obviously a desktop 3060 is going to outperform an undervolted laptop 3060
wtf is the point of putting a 165hz display in a laptop lmao whats the battery life, 1.5 hour?
No one who uses that kind of laptop plays vidya on battery in the first place
Don't gaming laptops nowadays have batteries that you can't take out anyway? Unless you open them up with screwdrivers but that shit is a hassle so who does it anyway
l o l
trouble reading gramps?
anon a laptop can get close to half the frames of a pc with worse specs. my old 1660 build performed radically better than my wife's 3060 laptop.
laptops also have dogshit ram modules that can cause double-digit reductions in framerate, and your average pc-illiterate laptop owner isn't going to be able to fix it.
Your wife must have had a low wattage 3060
probably, gaming laptops are a scam.
works on my machine
>can't even maintain 45fps in red dead redemption
A mobile 3060 should have no issue hitting 60 fps on ultra in rdr2 unless it's one of those meme 60W cucked versions. You should always look for 130W or more
130w 3060 averages 53fps according to online benchmarks.
Must have confused that with a 130w 3070 then
works on my machine
name 5 laptops that has good build and specs for the rx 6700 xt
don't buy a laptop you fucking retard, learn to read
I want to say RX 6700 XT but my IQ is nothing to brag about
And which one can you do AI stuff with? Checkmate AMD tards
>And which one can you do """AI stuff""" with
My laptop from 2019 with a gtx 1660ti is still kicking. Do people just buy from chink brands or what?
That's not a real 4050 or 3060. Take away one -xx10 from the number. A mobile 3080 is as strong as a desktop 3070.
so uhhh the 4050 mobile is as strong as desktop 3040?
uhm rtx 4040 bros where you guys at?
Wish I had enough space in my pod for a desktop
lol, imagine gaming on a laptop
total brainlet move
retards who don't know computers don't think there's a difference.
there isn't a difference
>stationary machines is more powerful than..... portable machines?
I could get these in my country for $1100 (Pongo 7). Is it worth it?
which one gay, you posted three different fucking models
Intel® Core™ i7-11700 8 Cores, up to 4.90 GHz
16 GB Memory, Upgradeable up to 64 GB
512 GB NVMe, Upgradeable up to 6 TB
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6
are you capable of servicing the laptop? if no I wouldn't bother. even if you ignore the molten lava cpu, modern laptops are notorious for putting in dogshit ram, so at the very least you need to be able to open it and inspect it to ensure the ram isn't shit. worst case scenario you need to know how to replace it.
>rocket lake in a laptop
lmao, avoid this like the plague
3:2 are kino.
the 4050 runs cooler and uses much less energy but is weaker than a 3060. Even a 4060 barely beats a 3060 because even though it has more Vram it actually has less RT cores and Tensor cores and lower bandwidth too but it runs at much higher clockspeeds, so it evens out. On games where more Vram is necessary the 4060 pulls ahead. On games where not much Vram is needed the 3060 is either the same or faster. Nvidia are scammers bro.
so the 4050 actually equals to the 3050 or 3050ti?
Why is it whenever there is a gaming laptop thread, autists always come out and say "get a desktop". Some people have legit reasons why a desktop doesn't make any sense.
because gaming laptops are shit and have always been shit. they're marginally better than consoles for double/triple the price. I would recommend a PS5 over a gaming laptop any day.
a ps5 cant play obscure indie games and modded games. Also no piracy
>they're marginally better than consoles for double/triple the price
Price sure but not even close to true in use case
These kinds of laptops are going to go the way of the dodo soon.
Apple started a battery life/power consumption ARMsrace.
These porky GPUs slurp so many watts they will make the laptop battery die in 30mins without being plugged in.
Laptop makers are not going to make that shit anymore when Apple is parading around 16 hour battery life on their stuff.
You will mainly see APUs from now on.
It’s what the Steam Deck already uses, and probably has better battery life than your laptop.
If you actually want something that’s portable but don’t mind zero battery life/ keeping it plugged in all the time, then go for a mini PC and a screen to pair with it.
