In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

The RTX 3060 Ti has a 165 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 3080, but the RTX 3080 has 52 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 3060 Ti. As a result, the RTX 3080 exhibits a 48.5 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 165 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 3080 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RTX 3060 Ti providing 10.5 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 RTX 3060 Ti was released less than a year after the RTX 3080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 3080 has 2048 MB more video memory than the RTX 3060 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The RTX 3060 Ti has 448 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 3080, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 3060 Ti is massively better than the RTX 3080.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB has 8704 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 3080 is 15276 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 3060 Ti is 4531. The RTX 3080 having 10745 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RTX 3060 Ti performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The RTX 3060 Ti transistor size technology is 1 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 3080. This means that the RTX 3060 Ti is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 3080.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB requires 320 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the RTX 3080 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RTX 3060 Ti. The RTX 3080 requires 140 Watts more than the RTX 3060 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 3080 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 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2180. Architecture It equips an Ampere GPU Codenamed GA102 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 3386 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 1440MHz and goes up to 1755MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 10GB frame buffer of Third Gen GDDR6X 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 320W, it requires at least a 750W PSU with available two 8-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB suggests it will be faster than the Geforce RTX 2080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer 10GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160.
