GeForce GTX 1080 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3070 benchmarks
In our benchmarks, the GeForce RTX 3070 beats the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in gaming performance.
Our database shows that the GeForce RTX 3070 has a slightly higher core clock speed. The core clock speed (or base speed) is the frequency at which the GPU core runs. This metric makes sense when comparing GPUs of a similar architecture or generation. In addition, the GeForce RTX 3070 also has a slightly higher boost clock speed. This is a frequency that can be reached if the GPU is cooled sufficiently and has enough power.
Next up, in terms of GPU memory, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has slightly more memory with 11 GiB of memory compared to 8 GiB. Lots of memory is good when playing at high resolutions or with many monitors.
In addition, the GeForce RTX 3070 has a slightly lower TDP at 220 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti at 250 W. This is not a measure of performance, but rather the amount of heat generated by the chip when running at its highest speed.
In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3070 is better than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
