In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 11GB.

The GeForce RTX 3090 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2080 Ti. This results in the GeForce RTX 3090 providing 80.8 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce RTX 3090 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2080 Ti. This results in the GeForce RTX 3090 providing 15.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce RTX 3090 was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2080 Ti, and so the GeForce RTX 3090 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RTX 2080 Ti.

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 GeForce RTX 3090 has 13312 MB more video memory than the RTX 2080 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce RTX 3090 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce RTX 3090 has 296 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2080 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce RTX 3090 is massively better than the RTX 2080 Ti.

The GeForce RTX 3090 has 10496 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 11GB has 4352. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 3090 is 17843 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7181. The GeForce RTX 3090 having 10662 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce RTX 3090 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RTX 2080 Ti.

The GeForce RTX 3090 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2080 Ti. This means that the GeForce RTX 3090 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2080 Ti.

The GeForce RTX 3090 requires 350 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 11GB requires 260 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the GeForce RTX 3090 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti. The GeForce RTX 3090 requires 90 Watts more than the RTX 2080 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce RTX 3090 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2080 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 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 Ampere GA102 which has 5120 Shader Processing Units, 320 TMUs, and 96 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1520MHz and goes up to 2153MHz in Boost mode. It also has 610 Tensor Cores for AI purposes and 72 RT Cores for real-time ray-tracing. Memory The GPU accesses a 24GB frame buffer of second-gen GDDR6X memory through a 384-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 350W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with two 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 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 GeForce RTX 2080 Ti EVGA XC2 Ultra Gaming 11GB is a triple-slot RTX 20 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing architecture.
