In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer Pink 10GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5.

The RTX 3080 has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed and 92 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RTX 3080 providing 141.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 3080 has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed and 17 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RTX 3080 providing 28 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 3080 was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2060, and so the RTX 3080 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RTX 2060.

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 7168 MB more video memory than the RTX 2060, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 3080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2060 has 144 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 3080, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2060 is massively better than the RTX 3080.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer Pink 10GB has 8704 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 3080 is 15276 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 3226. The RTX 3080 having 12050 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 3080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RTX 2060.

The RTX 3080 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2060. This means that the RTX 3080 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer Pink 10GB requires 320 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the RTX 3080 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RTX 2060. The RTX 3080 requires 170 Watts more than the RTX 2060 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 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer Pink 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 Pink 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 Pink 10GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.Overview GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 does support real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of slower GDDR5 memory compared to the GDDR6 model, running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. The limited video memory available means the RTX 2060 3GB will struggle at 1440p resolution. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920 x 1080. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
