NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Complete review and benchmark


This time around NVidia launched the upgraded versions of their predecessors. What makes this GPUs lineup better than the last-gen is the addition of new 3 GPUs. The NVidia RTX 3080 Ti is one of the most powerful GPUs. It has more VRAM than the last Gen RTX 2080 Ti and is more powerful than the last gen. the performance of This GPU is somewhere between RTX 3090, and AMD 6800XT.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti


  • Large Cuda cores than the last Gen RTX 2080 Ti
  • Amazing design
  • Good noise control
  • Awesome raytracing


  • Expensive
  • power hungry
  • bulky

Name and Architecture:

Micro-Architecture Ampere
Model No. GA102-225
Fabrication Node Samsung 8 nm
Manufacturer NVIDIA
Current Price $1199 USD
Release Date 3rd June, 2021

We know that new Nvidia GPUs are getting more power full than their last gen. and this RTX 3080 Ti is beast when it comes to performance. This GPU is based on the Ampere architecture which is more powerful than the last Gen Turing. This GPU was launched back in 2021 and still has its hype for most consumers. The key difference is the price between this one and the last-gen one. The base price is $1199, which is by this time still expensive.


Base Clock 1370 MHz
Boost Clock 1670 MHz

The base frequency of this GPU is 1370 MHz which is faster than most new GPUs. The Boost Clock is also faster than other GPUs at this point which is 1670 MHz the base frequency is going to help in mostly GPU-bound games like Call of Duty Warzone. There are not much of differences between their base clock and boost clock speeds, but given the fact that RTX 3080 Ti has 58% more Cuda cores, that makes this GPU even faster with these overclocked base clock and boost clock speeds.

Memory specifications:

Memory Clock 1187.5 MHz
Effective Memory Clock 19000 MHz
Memory Size 12 GB
Memory Type GDDR6X
Memory Bus 384-bit
Memory Bandwidth 912 GB/s

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has 12 GB of GDDR6X memory with a frequency of 1187.5GHz. Which is really fast compared to its predecessors. The memory clock of this GPU is 19GHz, this will really improve the performance of this GPU. This GPU interface is 384-Bit which is faster than the last-gen Geforce RTX 2080 Ti. The memory bandwidth is a lot faster than its predecessor also. Like it’s faster than Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 Ti and Nvidia Geforce RTX 3070. The memory bandwidth is freaking 912 GB/s which is really fast and it’s almost 55% faster than RTX 2080 Ti. This leads us to better performance, more efficient, and greater options for many gamers.

Cores & Texture:

CUDA Cores 10240
Texture Mapping Units 320
Render Output Units 112
SMPs 80
Tensor Cores 320
RT Cores 80
CUDA: 8.5

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has double the cores from the last gen RTX 2080 Ti, which is 10240 Cuda cores. There are 320 texture mapping units, which will help in making textures smoother, and there are also 320 Tensor cores, these tensor cores will help in Raytracing. For those who don’t know what ray tracing is, well let me tell you. Raytracing is a new technology that makes the environment of games like the real world. There are tons of new features added to this GPU. There are also 80 RT cores, these 80 RT cores will make the performance of the GPU to an extreme level. There are 112 ROPs that will help in-game physics, game engines, etc.

Electric characteristics:

Maximum power draw: 350 W

Well, one of the biggest differences here is the 350W of power consumption. For that, you will need a power supply that runs this GPU smoothly and safely. And for that my friend I recommend GPU beyond 1200W. One of the key reasons to eke out the full potential of a GPU is the Power supply. So make sure to choose the right one.

Video features:

Multi-monitor: Up to 4 displays
Maximum digital resolution: 7800 x 4320 @60 Hz
Maximum DP resolution: 7800 x 4320 @120 Hz
Maximum HDMI resolution: 40112 x 2160 @ 60 Hz
HDMI version: 2.1

This GPU is the right choice for gamers who plays AAA titles games. For those who want constant FPS for games like Call of Duty Warzone, Fortnite, Apex Legends, etc. you will need high refresh monitors for that. I suggest buying a monitor that fits your requirements like 24 Inch 4K monitor with at least 120Hz.


Pixel fill rate: 186.5 GPixel/s
Texture fill rate: 532.8 GTexel/s
Single precision compute power: 29.78 TFLOPS
Double precision computes power: 930.24 GFLOPS

The pixel file rate is freaking 186 GP/s which is amazingly fast thanks to that 320 cores for Texture mapping units. The texture fill rate is also 532 GP/s which is also fast. The computational power of this GPU is great. You can see at above table.

External connectors:

Standard display connectors: 3 x DisplayPort 1.4a
Power connectors: 1 x 12-pin
Audio input for HDMI: Yes

For 350W usage, this GPU has a single 12 Pin connecter, this will be changed in various variants. But this GPU has one of the best power connectors. Say bye to those bulky wires ruining your setup.


Height 2-slot
Width 11.2 cm or 4.4 inches
Length 28.5 cm or 11.2 inches

These days the size of the GPU is also important because there are a lot of cases that don’t fit some GPUs. This GPU is 11.2 inches which can fit in most PC cases. Plus the GPU is also dual-slot and may come with some variant that will acquire 3 slots at the motherboard.

Features & Support:

Other features: 3D Vision
3D Vision Surround
HDCP 2.3
Open CL support: 2.0
OpenGL support: 4.6
DirectX support: 12 Ultimate
Vulkan support: 1.2
Shader model: 6.5

There are a lot of new features in this GPU, and they are updated over time. The most amazing new features about this GPU are Ray tracing, 3D Vision, PhysX, etc. This NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has Open CL support 2.0 which is a lot more efficient than the last-gen Open CL 1.0. This will help boost performance. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti also has Open GL 4.6 support which is also faster than the Open GL 4.5. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti also has DirectX 12 ultimate support. The Vulkan support is also 1.2 which makes the driver’s experience more up-to-date. The Shader model makes the texture experience more accurate and more efficient and fast. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has the Shader model 6.5.

Best Processor for this GPU:

Well to avoid any bottleneck you need to buy a compatible CPU, in order to get the full performance out of this GPU. So I have a list of one of the most amazing processors for this GPU.

AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT
AMD Ryzen 7 5800
AMD Ryzen 7 5700X
Intel Core i9 12900KS
AMD Ryzen 9 5900
AMD Ryzen 5 5600

 Gaming Experience:

 The gaming experience of this GPU is on another level at 4K 120FPS. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti has one of the fastest memories, fast clock speeds, faster memory clock speeds, more Cuda cores, the newest architecture, and higher bandwidth. Which makes the gaming experience more powerful. The more the Cuda cores the faster the performance of a GPU will be. Running GTA 5 on this GPU will give you around 320+ FPS. And in almost every game this GPU shows the best performance.
