In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 11GB.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2080 Ti, but the RTX 2080 Ti has 60 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce RTX 3070. As a result, the RTX 2080 Ti exhibits a 49.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce RTX 3070. 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 3070 has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2080 Ti, but the RTX 2080 Ti has 24 more Render Output Units than the GeForce RTX 3070. As a result, the RTX 2080 Ti exhibits a 22.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce RTX 3070. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce RTX 3070 was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2080 Ti, and so the GeForce RTX 3070 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 RTX 2080 Ti has 3073 MB more video memory than the GeForce RTX 3070, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 2080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 616 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce RTX 3070, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is massively better than the GeForce RTX 3070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has 5888 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 11GB has 4352. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 is 10186 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7116. The GeForce RTX 3070 having 3070 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RTX 2080 Ti performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce RTX 3070 transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2080 Ti. This means that the GeForce RTX 3070 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2080 Ti.

The GeForce RTX 3070 requires 220 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti EVGA XC Ultra Gaming 11GB requires 260 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 3070 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti. The RTX 2080 Ti requires 40 Watts more than the GeForce RTX 3070 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 2080 Ti may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce RTX 3070.
