GeForce RTX 3060 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3070 Ti specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU is faster than the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti in gaming.

Our database shows that the GeForce RTX 3070 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 3070 Ti also has a slightly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.

Furthermore, the spec sheet for both these GPUs show that they both have the same amount of memory at 8 GiB. Memory size doesn't directly affect performance, but too little memory will certainly degrade gaming performance.

In addition, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti has a significantly lower TDP at 200 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti at 290 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 3070 Ti over the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.
