GeForce GTX 1080 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3080 Ti comparison
In our benchmarks, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti beats the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in gaming performance.
Our database shows that the GeForce GTX 1080 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 3080 Ti 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.
Next up, in terms of GPU memory, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has slightly more memory with 12 GiB of memory compared to 11 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 GTX 1080 Ti has a slightly lower TDP at 250 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti at 350 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 3080 Ti is better than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
