GeForce RTX 3070 Ti vs GeForce RTX 3080 Ti specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU is faster than the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti in gaming.

In our comparison, 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. This is a frequency that can be reached if the GPU is cooled sufficiently and has enough power.

As stated by the manufacturer, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has significantly more memory with 12 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 3070 Ti has a slightly lower TDP at 290 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti at 350 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.

In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is better than the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti.
