GeForce RTX 2080 Ti vs Radeon RX 6700 XT comparison

In our benchmarks, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti beats the Radeon RX 6700 XT in gaming performance.

In our comparison the Radeon RX 6700 XT 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 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.

As stated by the manufacturer, the Radeon RX 6700 XT has slightly more memory with 12 GiB of memory compared to 11 GiB. Lots of memory is good when playing at high resolutions or with many monitors.

In addition, the Radeon RX 6700 XT has a slightly lower TDP at 230 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 2080 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 conclusion, all specs and GPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti over the Radeon RX 6700 XT.

Graphics card specifications

Core Clock speed and Boost clock speed directly influence gaming performance, typically the higher, the better. When thermals and power delivery allow, the GPU will raise its core clock to the boost clock for even more performance. A higher core clock speed may cause a higher TDP, however.

Memory is important for high resolutions and high resolution textures in games, if you're gaming at 4K or even 8K lots of memory is required. Too little memory may result in stuttering as the GPU tries to swap and fit everything in memory.

Memory bandwidth relates to the speed at which the GPU memory can be accessed. Higher speed is better as the graphics card won't need to wait for memory access before rendering a frame to the screen.

The memory bus width doesn't directly impact performance but, it the memory bandwidth. It measures how much data can be sent at one to and from the memory.

TDP (Thermal Design Power) is a measurement of how much energy is lost as heat when a GPU is running. This has an impact on system temperatures. If temperatures get too high (typically around 100 °C or 200 °F), the GPU will lower its performance in order to prevent damage to the chip. Adequate cooling is essential for good performance. If you're comparing two laptop GPUs, you may take this into account when choosing between the two, since a cooler laptop generally runs faster for longer.
