[SOLVED] which should i upgrade to my gt 730 to rtx 3050 or rx 6500 xt

You can see the 3050mobile part plays games quite well at 1080p, the desktop part should be faster than that.

Despite different architectures the 3050 seems to have substantially more hardware resources. Clock speeds seem to be really going up with smaller AMD chips and it could be possible to make up for the resources in that manner.

I'd go with 3050 because you can already see its potential performance using the mobile chip as a point of reference.
