In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Colorful iGame Advanced OC 11GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

The RTX 3060 Ti has a 255 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2080 Ti, but the RTX 2080 Ti has 112 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 3060 Ti. As a result, the RTX 2080 Ti exhibits a 110.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RTX 3060 Ti. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 3060 Ti has a 255 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2080 Ti, but the RTX 2080 Ti has 24 more Render Output Units than the RTX 3060 Ti. As a result, the RTX 2080 Ti exhibits a 16.1 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RTX 3060 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 3060 Ti was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2080 Ti, and so the RTX 3060 Ti 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 3072 MB more video memory than the RTX 3060 Ti, 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 RTX 3060 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is massively better than the RTX 3060 Ti.

The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Colorful iGame Advanced OC 11GB has 4352. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 3060 Ti is 4531 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7116. The RTX 2080 Ti having 2585 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 RTX 3060 Ti.

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

The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti requires 180 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Colorful iGame Advanced OC 11GB requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RTX 3060 Ti and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti. The RTX 2080 Ti requires 70 Watts more than the RTX 3060 Ti 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 RTX 3060 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture. This is the 'Ti' variant of the RTX 3060 and utilises a cut-down version of the RTX 3070 GPU. Architecture It equips a cut-down Ampere GPU Codenamed GA106-400 which is a 2nd-Gen Ampere GPU and has 40 SM activated, offering 2560 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides the world's next consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The central unit runs at 1605 MHz and goes up to 1770 MHz, in Turbo Mode. 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 448GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 180W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector. Performance Performance of the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti puts it between the RTX 3060 and GeForce RTX 3070 making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming yet ideal for 1440p.
