Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti vs RTX 3080

If you're looking at the new Nvidia GPU, we look at how it compares to the 3080

RTX 4070 Ti vs 3080

The RTX 4080 12 GB is rebadged as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti after the cards unlaunch. The Green Team asserts that RT-Overdrive makes it up to 3 times faster than RTX 3090 Ti. But how does the 4070 Ti vs 3080 compare?

Given that we have already seen the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti’s specifications and performance, there is nothing to get excited about. As anticipated, the RTX 4070 Ti will have the identical specifications as the RTX 4080 12 GB that Team Green unreleased.

The RTX 4070 Ti is up to 3.5 times quicker than the RTX 3080 12GB graphics card when RT-Overdrive is enabled. The card exhibits gains of over 2x even when RT-Overdrive is off, but these are once more with DLSS 3 (Frame-Generation) enabled.

Which does mean that the normal performance will be rather more disappointing and much close. Especially where DLSS isn’t available let alone DLSS 3.

The “Ada Lovelace” AD104-400 GPU configuration, the full-fat SKU with 7,680 cores or 60 SMs enabled, will be used by the RTX 4070 Ti.

We are getting up to around 12 GB of GDDR6X capacity since the GPU will have a 192-bit bus interface and 48 MB of L2 cache.

According to reports, the memory operates at 21 Gbps speeds, providing 504 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The card’s alleged boost clock is 2610 MHz, although the peak frequency will be greater.

Before deciding if the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti is worth the price and performance, we want to urge our readers to wait for the final reviews that will be released in the upcoming week.

The TBP’s power rating has been changed to 285W, which is a 35W reduction from the RTX 3080 10 GB variant and a 5W reduction from the RTX 3070 Ti.

The new graphics card is anticipated to perform better than the RTX 3080; however, because of the 4080 16 GB’s reduced specs, there will be a significant performance difference between the two variants of roughly 30–40%.

RTX 4070 Ti vs 3080 FAQs

How much better is the 4070 Ti than the 3080?

3DMark provides graphical benchmarks for graphics cards. With that, we can compare how good the cards are against each other. In there we see the RTX 4070 Ti achieve a score of 22,652 and the RTX 3080 gets 17,557. This means the 4070 Ti is 29% better than the 3080.

How much faster is the 4070 Ti than the 3080?

We also look at the frequency of the GPU. This is how fast it processes instructions and there has been an improvement over the previous architectures. And we see the change, with the RTX 3080 having a base clock of 1,440 MHz and a boost clock of 1,710 MHz. Whilst the RTX 4070 Ti has a base clock of 2,310 MHz and a boost of 2,610 MHz. This means the 4070 Ti has a 60.4% faster base clock and a 52.6% faster boost clock.
