Radeon RX 5700 XT vs GeForce RTX 3060 Ti comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti GPU is faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT in gaming.

In our comparison, the Radeon RX 5700 XT has a slightly 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 5700 XT also has a slightly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.

Next up, in terms of GPU memory, 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 slightly lower TDP at 200 W when compared to the Radeon RX 5700 XT at 225 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 3060 Ti is better than the Radeon RX 5700 XT.
