As per the leaked official performance benchmarks by Videocardz, the RTX 3060 Ti outperforms the Turing based GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER in all aspects, making it the next best choice for 1080p and 1440p gaming.
The RTX 3060 Ti will be the first graphic card from the RTX 30 series to be priced under $500. Although it is mentioned that RTX 3060 Ti is the successor to RTX 2060, it outperforms the RTX 2080 super.
An Intel Core i9-10900K CPU based platform was used to measure the RTX 3060 Ti performance at 1440p resolution. The results for three AAA titles showed that the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti was 5.5% faster than the RTX 2080 SUPER while it was 43.5% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER. In Ray Tracing, the RTX 3060 Ti was 44.75% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER and 9.5% faster than the RTX 2080 SUPER. The reason behind this is that the ray-tracing uplift is pretty strong on Ampere GPUs, considering that they pack the 2nd Gen RT cores. The RTX 3060 Ti has less number of cores than the RTX 2080 SUPER but still manages to outperform it.
As for rendering and content creation, the RTX 3060 Ti leaves behind the RTX 2080 SUPER by 67.8%, while there was a difference of 36.3% between the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 2080 SUPER. That’s a drastic performance difference compared to its predecessor, but we should wait for the real reviews to see whether the results are valid or not.
RTX 3060 Ti Specifications:
As far as the specifications are concerned, the RTX 3060 Ti features 4864 CUDA Cores, 80 ROPs, a base clock speed of 1410 MHz, and a boost speed of up to 1665 MHz. Moreover, it also features GA104 GPU making it the second graphic card to feature this GPU. There is no specific SKU or variant number assigned, but it’s expected that GA104-200 might be reserved for the RTX 3060 Ti.
As for the memory, the card features 8 GB GDDR6 memory, and the memory clock will be maintained at 1750 MHz or 14 Gbps, making up to a total bandwidth of 448GB/s. It also features a 256-bit bus interface. The pixel and texture fillrate are both reported to be at 133.2 GPixel/s & 674.3 GTexel/s, respectively.
The NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti will be launched on 2 December with a price tag of around $399. Several custom variants will be available at the launch.
