In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gigabyte Gaming OC 11GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060.

The GeForce RTX 3060 has a 60 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2080 Ti, but the RTX 2080 Ti has 128 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce RTX 3060. As a result, the RTX 2080 Ti exhibits a 164.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce RTX 3060. 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 3060 has a 60 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 3060. As a result, the RTX 2080 Ti exhibits a 28.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GeForce RTX 3060. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce RTX 3060 was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2080 Ti, and so the GeForce RTX 3060 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 5264 MB more video memory than the GeForce RTX 3060, 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 168 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce RTX 3060, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is massively better than the GeForce RTX 3060.

The GeForce RTX 3060 has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gigabyte Gaming OC 11GB has 4352. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 3060 is 3940 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7246. The RTX 2080 Ti having 3306 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce RTX 3060.

The GeForce RTX 3060 transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2080 Ti. This means that the GeForce RTX 3060 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2080 Ti.

The GeForce RTX 3060 requires 180 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Gigabyte Gaming OC 11GB requires 260 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce RTX 3060 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti. The RTX 2080 Ti requires 80 Watts more than the GeForce RTX 3060 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 2080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce RTX 3060.
