In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Aorus 8GB.

The RTX 2060 has a 240 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 3080 Ti, but the RTX 3080 Ti has 194 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. As a result, the RTX 3080 Ti exhibits a 206 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RTX 2060. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 2060 has a 240 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 3080 Ti, but the RTX 3080 Ti has 24 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2060. As a result, the RTX 3080 Ti exhibits a 14.1 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RTX 2060. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 3080 Ti was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2060, and so the RTX 3080 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RTX 2060.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RTX 3080 Ti has 3072 MB more video memory than the RTX 2060, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 3080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 3080 Ti has 388 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2060, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 3080 Ti is massively better than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has 5285 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Aorus 8GB has 2176. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 3080 Ti is 8932 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 4015. The RTX 3080 Ti having 4917 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 3080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RTX 2060.

The RTX 3080 Ti transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2060. This means that the RTX 3080 Ti is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Ti requires 320 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Aorus 8GB requires 175 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 3080 Ti and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the RTX 2060. The RTX 3080 Ti requires 145 Watts more than the RTX 2060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 3080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is the top RTX 30 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Ampere architecture. Architecture The Ampere architecture represents a process shrink down to 7nm compared to 12nm Turing. The Ampere architecture provides the world's next consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed GA102 which has 5285 Shader Processing Units, 330 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1230MHz and goes up to 1690MHz in Boost mode. It also has 576 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. Memory The GPU accesses an 11GB frame buffer of second-gen GDDR6X memory through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 320W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with two 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a top-End Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview The GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gigabyte Aorus 8GB is a mid to high-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture.
