NVIDIA’s RTX 3060 is one of the best graphics cards for mid-range performance — armed with 3,840 CUDA cores, 6GB GDDR6 video memory and a boost clock speed up to 1,703 MHz. And buying it in a laptop is one of the best ways to actually get your hands on one right now.
RTX 3060 laptop availability is becoming more and more widespread, but getting the good ones is still quite a challenge. That’s why we’re doing this big round up of all the major-brand RTX 3060 laptops you can buy (in the U.S.), plus links to where you can grab one.
These options come with either Intel or AMD CPUs, so you’re covered no matter whichever processor you prefer. With stock, pricing and shipping times changing frequently, we can’t 100% guarantee that something on this list will still be available by the time you read this. But rest assured, we will be keeping this article up to date as regularly as possible.
Before we begin, a quick disclaimer: we have not tested all of these laptops. If you want the best gaming laptops, as tested by us, we have a list for that. But since demand for laptops with this GPU continues (alongside RTX 3070 laptops and RTX 3080 laptops), we wanted to make the task of hunting one down easy for you.
