GeForce GTX 1080 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3070 Ti comparison

For gaming, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card is better than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in our tests.

Our database shows that the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 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 Ti also 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, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has slightly more memory with 11 GiB of memory compared to 8 GiB. Memory size doesn't directly affect performance, but too little memory will certainly degrade gaming performance.

In addition, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has a slightly lower TDP at 250 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti at 290 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is better than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
