[Comparison] NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (75W) vs RTX 3050 Ti (60W) – The higher TDP wins

Today we will see how much a higher TDP can help a GPU pull ahead, especially when we are talking about the same GPU. To test that, we have the RTX 3050 Ti in two separate TDP configurations: one with a 75W TDP and one with a 60W TDP. The RTX 3050 Ti is making a name for itself as the best budget GPU that you can get your hands on right now.

GPU benchmarks

As you would guess, the GPUs offer almost identical performance. Obviously, the 75W version has a tad more performance, as the higher TDP allows it to reach higher clock speeds. In terms of benchmark scores, the RTX 3050 Ti (75W) was 5%, 4%, and 6% faster in 3DMark Fire Strike, Unigine Heaven 4.0, and Unigine Superposition, respectively.

Results are from the 3DMark: Fire Strike (Graphics) benchmark (higher the score, the better)

Results are from the Unigine Superposition benchmark (higher the score, the better)


All in all, the RTX 3050 Ti (75W) undoubtedly has more power and we would advise you to go for it since there probably won’t be a price increase from the 60W to the 75W versions. Also, manufacturers decide for themselves which GPU to put in their laptops, so you have to factor in the rest of the features that a laptop offers before you go and look at what GPU it comes with. That is why we recommend checking our reviews since we go all the way in figuring out exactly what is inside every laptop that we put to the test.
