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.
