GeForce GTX 1070 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3050 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti GPU is faster than the GeForce RTX 3050 in gaming.

In our comparison, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti has a slightly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. Despite this, the GeForce RTX 3050 has a slightly higher boost clock speed. The boost clock speed is the frequency that the GPU core can reach if the temperature is low enough. The allows for higher performance in certain scenarios.

As stated by the manufacturer, they both have the same amount of memory at 8 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.

In addition, the GeForce RTX 3050 has a slightly lower TDP at 130 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti at 180 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti is better than the GeForce RTX 3050.
