NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060M GPU converted to desktop graphics card tested in games

The converted card performs slightly better than the official notebook SKU

The lack of graphics cards during the pandemic and mining forced Chinese companies to create desktop versions with mobile GPU designs. Months later, the South Korean channel BullsLab did a review comparing A NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060M for desktop vs real notebook RTX 3060M. The review also included synthetic and gaming benchmarks.

Made in China, this unusual creation performs better in games and synthetic benchmarks compared to the RTX 3060M. And the tester cranked the notebook’s GPU TDP from the factory default of 80W to 105W, and even then, the RTX 3060M couldn’t keep up with its sister, released from notebook prison.

It should be remembered that the RTX 3060M turned into a desktop video card is not exactly a video card for games, as it is a kind of Frankenstein. They are made by unknown companies because none of the big brands like Asus, Gigabyte and many others have made their versions.

The desktop RTX 3060M has the same specs as its notebook counterpart. The biggest difference is for the TDP locked at 80W, versus the 105W the mobile variant actually manages when configured. The converted graphics card reaches frequencies from 100 MHz to 300 MHz faster depending on the need.

Chinese OEMs sell mobile NVIDIA GPUs as mining graphics cards

Transformed boards are unofficial

The desktop RTX 3060M has no LHR limitation, which eventually became an acronym because miners found a way to break the limitation of NVIDIA LHR GPUs. Also, these video cards do not have official drivers. They use custom versions of 512.15, which is several months old.

As the Videocardz website pointed out, the lack of official support from NVIDIA, such as official drivers for these transformed GPUs, suggests that even their production is illegal, although the Jensen Huang-led company has never officially said anything about it.

Even the RTX 3060M graphics card for desktop PCs has good performance and could be an alternative in the market, but without NVIDIA’s judgment it wouldn’t have happened. Additionally, rumors suggest that the company will delay the launch of the next-gen Ada Lovelace due to the current-gen RTX 30 cards on the market.
