In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB.

The RTX 2080 has a 15 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 3070, but the GeForce RTX 3070 has 28 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2080. As a result, the GeForce RTX 3070 exhibits a 39.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RTX 2080. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 2080 has a 15 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce RTX 3070 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RTX 2080 providing 1 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 3070 was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2080, 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.

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 3070 and the GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RTX 2080 has 448 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce RTX 3070, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 is massively better than the GeForce RTX 3070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has 5888 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB has 2944. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 is 10186 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 is 5034. The GeForce RTX 3070 having 5152 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RTX 2080 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. This means that the GeForce RTX 3070 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2080.

The GeForce RTX 3070 requires 220 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB requires 215 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. The GeForce RTX 3070 requires 5 Watts more than the RTX 2080 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce RTX 3070 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the RTX 2080.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3070 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2170. Architecture It equips an Ampere GPU Codenamed GA104 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 212 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides the world's best consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: GA102 GPU The central unit runs at 1424MHz and goes up to 1872MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Third Gen GDDR6 through a 320-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 suggests it will be faster than the Geforce RTX 2070 Super, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 3070 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.Overview The GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture and is suitable for 1440p or 4K gaming. This is a dual-slot graphics card with a basic blower fan design. This video card has poor overclocking potential. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed TU104. More specifically, it uses the TU104-400-A1 variant which means factor overclocks are not permitted. This is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 184 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing (RTX) technology. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The central unit runs at 1515MHz and goes up to 1710MHz in Turbo Mode, the same as the reference specs and 5% slower clock speeds than the Founders Edition. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 215W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance The performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is slightly faster than the GTX 1080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Phoenix 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
