GeForce RTX 2080 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3070 specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU is faster than the GeForce RTX 3070 in gaming.

Our database shows that the GeForce RTX 3070 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 RTX 3070 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.

Furthermore, the spec sheet for both these GPUs show that the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has slightly more memory with 11 GiB of memory compared to 8 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 RTX 3070 has a slightly lower TDP at 220 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti at 250 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is faster than the GeForce RTX 3070.
