A While back, the RTX 3000 was released with 3 GPU Cards the RTX 3080, 3070, and 3090, all of them were excellent, but there was something missing the 60 Class Card, as generally the 60 Class card is the one with the best price to performance ratio, and now we have the RTX 3060 Ti and man! It’s amazing, the performance is jaw-dropping.
Here is an Initial Review of the RTX 3060 Ti with benchmarks.
GeForce RTX 3080 Specification Table
|Graphics card||RTX 3060 Ti||RTX 2080 Super|
|Base/Boost Clock||1410/1670MHa||1650/1815MHz||1500/1730 MHz|
|VRAM||8 GB GDDR6||6 GB GDDR6||8 GB GDDR6|
|Data Rate||14 Gbps||15.5 Gbps||14Gbps|
GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
The RTX 3060 Ti is an Ampere based GPU and is the cheapest RTX 3000 card as of now, it has 4864 Cuda Cores with a Base/Boost Clock of 1410/1670 MHz, 38 RT Cores, and 152 Tensor Cores. It has 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM with 14Gbps Data transfer Rate, a 256 Bit Bus Interface with a Bandwidth of 448 GBps, the TDP is rated at 200W, and the recommended Power Supply is 600W.
Just for comparison the 3070 has 59% more Cuda cores than the 2080 Super, and it is priced at $399, as comapred to $699 for the 2080 Super, so if you want RAW GPU performance than the RTX 3060 Ti is a better choice than the previous years flagship GPU’s.
Obviously, Cuda cores are not everything, if you look at other factors like the Data Rate, RT core, Tensor Cores, Bandwidth, etc then the RTX 2080 super is better, but if we compare the 2080 Super and 3060 Ti then the advantage lies with the RTX 3060 Ti, and the price to performance ratio of 3060 Ti is much better than the 2080 Super, as it, around $300 cheaper and is better than the 2080 Super in almost everything.
RTX 3060 Ti Benchmarks
CPU used is AMD Ryzen 9 5950X
All the games are in 1440P(2560 x 1440).
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
(1440P, Highest Settings)
3060 Ti better than the RTX 2080 Super by 6%, and loses to the RTX 3070 and 2080 Ti by 8% and 9% respectively.
Microsoft Flight Simulator
(1440P, Ultra Presets)
3060 Ti is slightly better than the 2080 Super.
(1440P, Highest Settings)
Again the same thing, 3060 Ti is better than the 2080 Super but loses to the 3070 and 2080 Ti.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
(1440P, Very High Settings, No AAA)
Here the 3060 Ti is way ahead of the 2080 Super, and very close to the 2080 Ti.
(1440P, DXR On)
Again 3060 Ti is ahead of the 2080 Super and very close to the 2080 Ti.
In the V-Ray GPU test, the RTX 3060 Ti, is better than both the 2080 Ti and 2080 Super, so in RAW GPU Computing Tasks, the RTX 3060 Ti should perform better.
The RTX 3060 Ti is an excellent GPU, and with the native founder’s edition priced at ₹399, the pricing of the Asus or MSI variant won’t be more than $500, so the RTX 3060 Ti can be an excellent choice for the PC Build under $1000, and given the fact that its performance is better than the RTX 2080 Super and very close to the RTX 2080 Ti, if you can get your hands on it, it will be bang for your buck.
