GeForce RTX 3080 Ti vs RTX A4000 specs and performance

For gaming, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card is better than the RTX A4000 in our tests.

In our comparison the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti 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 GeForce RTX 3080 Ti also has a slightly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery an thermals allow.

Next up, in terms of GPU memory, the RTX A4000 has slightly more memory with 16 GiB of memory compared to 12 GiB. Lots of memory is good when playing at high resolutions or with many monitors.

In addition, the RTX A4000 has a significantly lower TDP at 140 W when compared to the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti at 350 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 terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is better than the RTX A4000.

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.
