Go to https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/ and search up any GPUs you're looking into. Just make sure it's the right variant - in this case I assume you're looking at laptops here, so make sure you're looking at the laptop variants.
I'm no expert, but I have a 1660 Ti in my PC, and looking at the scores, the 3050 should be enough to run almost all games at 60+ FPS, but on medium/low settings if its a modern AAA game. Make sure you also check whether a laptop you're getting has a MUX switch, and a Total Graphics Power (TGP) high enough. Also investigate how good the cooling is. All of these things greatly affect GPU performance, to the point where I'd wager a 3050 Ti with perfect conditions is better than a 3060 with poor ones. (Again, I don't actually have any idea, don't take my word for that).

What laptops are you looking into?
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus with 1tb ssd and 16gb ram and 3050 ti 4gb graphics card. I want to use it for my architecture course but I’m not sure if the 4gb graphics card would be enough just wondering if I should upgrade it to a 6. However the 6 Is just a bit expensive so I’m hoping the 4 would be ok.
