a friend wants to sell off his rtx 2060 and get a rtx 3060-will he notice any significant performance improvements by doing so?

he has i5 10400 with 16gb ram and a 1080p monitor.

His gpu is about a year old and has 4 yrs warranty remaining(zotac extended warranty).How much can he expect for it if he were to sell it off?

3060 does give a uplift but go for 6600XT which costs as much as 3060 and performs better.

Saw 6650XT for 28k or so, which makes it cheaper than 3060 & slightly better performance. RT is still not viable at this performance class and DLSS or FSR are not viable at 1080p target resolution as well.

In terms of performance uplift, I'd say it is not significant. You will get 20-25% uplift. For a good uplift, jump to 3060Ti or 6700XT. That will be 50-60% jump.

But if 1080p is the target resolution & card is new, stick to 2060 IMO. Since RX 6600 is 20-23k, used 2060 might sell for 15-16k or so.

Below is a pic from an old video, newer GPUs generally run better in newer games as time progresses, so gap between 2060 & 6600 might be even wider now:
