GeForce RTX 2080 vs GeForce RTX 3060 Ti specs and performance
For gaming, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics card is better than the GeForce RTX 2080 in our tests.
In our comparison, the GeForce RTX 2080 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 2080 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.
Furthermore, the spec sheet for both these GPUs show that the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti has slightly more memory with 8 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 at 250 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.
In conclusion, all specs and GPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti over the GeForce RTX 2080.
