GeForce GTX 1080 Ti vs RTX A4000 specs and performance

In our benchmarks, the RTX A4000 beats the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in gaming performance.

Our database shows that the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has a significantly 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. In addition, the GeForce GTX 1080 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.

Next up, in terms of GPU memory, the RTX A4000 has significantly more memory with 16 GiB of memory compared to 11 GiB. Memory size doesn't directly affect performance, but too little memory will certainly degrade gaming performance.

In addition, the RTX A4000 has a significantly lower TDP at 140 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 RTX A4000 is better than the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
