The RTX 3060 Ti and 3080 from NVIDIA are two of the greatest graphics cards of the current generation since they are most likely the best midrange and high-end GPUs of the 30-series in terms of value. Additionally, now that the GPU shortage is ended, their prices aren’t too high.
Although NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40-series is undoubtedly coming soon, both cards are still excellent investments in 2022. It’s possible, according to the most recent reports, that the RTX 4080 will be little more than a pricey 4070, making RTX 30-series cards appealing even after the release of next-generation GPUs.
Is the RTX 3080 worth it over the 3060 ti?
The RTX 3080 and RTX 3060 Ti should both perform admirably at 1080p. Despite its superior performance, it’s unlikely that the 3080 will be worth its additional cost in the majority of situations for 1080p gaming.
With 3584 CUDA Cores, the RTX 3060 has fewer than half as many as the 3080. The affordable RTX 30-series card, however, features 12GB of GDDR6 memory and a higher boost clock speed of 1.78 GHz. However, it should be noted that the 12GB of memory uses an older version of GDDR6 rather than the “X” variant found in the RTX 3080.
