GeForce RTX 2080 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3060 Ti comparison

In our benchmarks, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti beats the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti in gaming performance.

Our database shows that the GeForce RTX 3060 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 3060 Ti 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, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has slightly more memory with 11 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 RTX 3060 Ti has a slightly lower TDP at 200 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti at 250 W. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is better than the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.
