In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer White 10GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 has a 60 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the RTX 3080. This results in the GeForce RTX 3070 providing 12.7 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 GeForce RTX 3070 has a 60 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 3080 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce RTX 3070 providing 3.8 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 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 2049 MB more video memory than the GeForce RTX 3070, 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 memory bandwidth of the GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer White 10GB and the GeForce RTX 3070 are the same, which means the RTX 3080 and the GeForce RTX 3070 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer White 10GB has 8704 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 3070 has 5888. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 3080 is 15276 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 is 10186. The RTX 3080 having 5090 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 3080 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce RTX 3070.

The GeForce RTX 3070 transistor size technology is 1 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 3080. This means that the GeForce RTX 3070 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 3080.

The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer White 10GB requires 320 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 3070 requires 220 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the RTX 3080 and a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the GeForce RTX 3070. The RTX 3080 requires 100 Watts more than the GeForce RTX 3070 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 GeForce RTX 3070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3080 Galax EX Gamer White 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.
