GeForce GTX 1080 vs GeForce RTX 3060 Ti benchmarks
For gaming, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card is better than the GeForce GTX 1080 in our tests.
The GeForce GTX 1080 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. In addition, the GeForce GTX 1080 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.
As stated by the manufacturer, they both have the same amount of memory at 8 GiB. Lots of memory is good when playing at high resolutions or with many monitors.
In addition, the GeForce GTX 1080 has a slightly lower TDP at 180 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti at 200 W. This is not a measure of performance, but rather the amount of heat generated by the chip when running at its highest speed.
According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is faster than the GeForce GTX 1080.
