GeForce GTX 1080 vs Radeon RX 6700 XT specs and performance
According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the Radeon RX 6700 XT GPU is faster than the GeForce GTX 1080 in gaming.
The Radeon RX 6700 XT has a significantly 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 Radeon RX 6700 XT also has a significantly 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 Radeon RX 6700 XT has significantly more memory with 12 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 GTX 1080 has a slightly lower TDP at 180 W when compared to the Radeon RX 6700 XT at 230 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 Radeon RX 6700 XT is faster than the GeForce GTX 1080.
