, Starting with The spec differences both cards have 8 gig of GDDR6 memory at the same speed.. The 3070 is rated 20 watts higher, but has a higher boost, clock, speed and 21 more CUDA cores, but has a 100 higher MSRP. As a result, though, actual prices could differ depending on availability issues that exist near launch.. This is the system that Im using to test out both graphics cards, so an overclocked i9 10900K at 5.2GHz, with 32gb of DDR4 3200 CL14 memory in dual channel. Ive got a list of all components and updated prices linked in the description.. Well, first dig into the gaming results, then check out cost per frame power draw and content creator workloads, afterwards. Microsoft, Flight Simulator was tested in the Sydney landing challenge.. There was more of a difference. Seen in the 1 lows at 1080p, the 1 low from the 3070 was 17 higher than the 3060 Ti. However, the average FPS was just 9 higher. Red Dead, Redemption 2 was tested using the games benchmark and the differences were similar with the 3070 10 faster. In average frame rate at 1080p and similar differences at the higher resolutions, too. Battlefield 5 saw an above average difference between the two, but despite that, theres still not too much difference.. Even at 4K, the 3060 Ti was still able to pass 60 FPS with the highest ultra setting preset.. The 3070 was 20 faster than the 3060 Ti here, the largest difference at 4K, out of the 13 games, tested.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the games built in benchmark.. The 3060 Ti wasnt quite able to pass 60 FPS at 4K. This time, unlike the 3070 but again, Im testing the highest setting presets here, which you could of course lower. But this does mean the 3070 was reaching 15 higher frame rate. For Control Ill start with ray tracing off results.. Both were somewhat usable at 4K, but not amazing. 1440P ran a lot better, at least with high settings.. The 3070 was reaching 16 higher average FPS. At this resolution and 13 higher at the lower 1080p. With ray tracing on 1440p was still playable on. Both though 1080p was a smoother experience with the 3070 running 11 faster., This game does, of course, have DLSS which will further boost performance on both graphics cards. I just wanted to see raw ray tracing only results. Dirt 5 was also tested with and without ray tracing.. Without ray tracing theres generally a below average difference here, the 3070 was reaching 13 higher average FPS at 4K., With ray tracing, enabled frame rates are cut significantly, probably not too worthwhile, given even 1080p is below 60 FPS on both cards granted Im using max settings, which Could be lowered but for comparison’s sake, the 3070 was 7 ahead. Ive tested Metro Exodus with the game’s benchmark tool. The differences in 1 low were much smaller when compared to the averages, which seems pretty typical with this game based on other comparisons: Ive done.

, Death Stranding. On the other hand, was another game where the 3070s 1 lows were a fair bit higher, only a little behind the average FPS from the 3060 Ti. At 1440p, the 1 low from the 3070 was 23 higher than the 3060 Ti. Meanwhile, the difference to average FPS was lower. At 11., The Witcher 3 had the largest difference between these two graphics cards at 1080p and 1440p resolutions. With the 3070 16 and 17 ahead of the 3060 Ti respectively. At 4K, there was a slightly larger 18 difference. Making this the second largest improvement on the 3070 out of the 13 games were looking at here. Assassins, Creed Valhalla was tested with the games benchmark and this game had the smallest difference out of all games., Basically no change at 1080p. The 3070 was 5 ahead at 1440p and 8 ahead at 4K, so yeah probably not worth spending 25 more money on a 3070 for.. The differences in Watch Dogs Legion were very similar to the average differences out of all games. So what were looking at here is fairly representative of most games covered., The 3070 is definitely faster. I just dont think theres much difference in practice. Call of Duty. Modern Warfare was tested in campaign mode and only had small changes at 1080p. The 3070 was just 5 ahead in average. Fps. Things pick up a bit at 1440p, though, where the 3070 was now 12 faster, then 15, faster at 4K, so larger differences at higher resolutions.

Rainbow Six Siege was the only game tested with Vulkan and the performance. Differences were a little above average with the 3070 when compared to the rest of the games, but still the 3060 Ti is delivering great results and isnt too far behind. In average FPS.. The biggest difference was to 1 low at 1440p, where the 3070 was 37 ahead.. At 1080p, on average over all 13 games tested, the 3070 was 10 faster than the 3060 Ti. In average. Fps. Results could vary a fair bit based on the specific game, though, with as little as a 2 gain with Assassins Creed down the bottom of the graph or up to a 16 boost in The Witcher 3 up the top. Stepping up to 1440p and the 3070 Was now 12.5 faster than the 3060 Ti on average.? This trend of bigger differences at higher resolutions is expected, as the GPU can get to work and system limitations depend less on other components.. This continues at 4K, where the 3070 is now over 14, faster than the 3060 Ti on average. Best case. Battlefield 5 was 20 ahead with the 3070 at the top of this graph, while Assassins Creed was still stuck at the bottom, though it wasnt just a small 2 change anymore, as was the case at 1080p., The 3060 Ti is able to deliver better value in terms Of cost per frame., Its 100 less, but as weve seen for the most part, the difference in frame rates isnt all that large.

, The 3060 Ti is still definitely offering good performance so combined with a better price, its just a better value pick.. When looking at total system power draw from the wall, the 3070 was drawing less than 7 more wattage in Control at 4K.. With this extra power, the 3070 was also reaching 17 higher average FPS in this game, which certainly sounds better in terms of efficiency.. The performance per watt measurements arent perfect as Im taking the wattage numbers from the last graph, which is one game and applying them to the average frame rates of all 13 games tested. So take this as an approximation.. The 3070 is performing better in all games, but based on power draw results in control at 4K. It doesnt need too much extra power to achieve this, so the 3070 is winning in this aspect. Not with gaming covered lets. Also take a look at some content creator. Workloads. Ive tested DaVinci Resolve with the Puget Systems. Benchmark.. The difference was very small, with the 3070 scoring just 2 higher than the 3060 Ti.. My Adobe Premiere export test was actually consistently a little faster on the 3060 Ti, but its only a 13 second difference. In a 9 minute render so again nothing major and kind of margin of error. Stuff. The V Ray benchmark was only scoring 4 higher on the 3070.. Both of these offer huge gains compared to older, Turing graphics cards. If youve caught any of my previous comparisons but relative to each other, theres, not much difference.

Blender was tested with the Open Data Benchmark.. The longer classroom test was completing 11 faster with the 3070, while the shorter BMW test was 9 faster or just 3 seconds again. Nothing too large. So as expected, the more expensive 3070 outperforms the 3060 Ti, but in many of the games tested, I dont think its that big of a difference that youd notice in practice and the same deal in content creator workloads. Assuming MSRP to get the 3070 Youre, paying 25 more money for a 10 boost in games at 1080p or 12, and a half percent boost at 1440p. That percentage difference becomes smaller in the context of an entire new system, thats more relevant if youre, only upgrading the graphics card. Unless youre going for High resolution gaming, like 4K and have the money honestly, I think the 3060 Ti is the better value pick for most people. It still performs very well., You could argue. The 3070 has better power, efficiency and hey if youre going to be smashing the GPU for hours. Every day and pay a lot for power, then, over a long period of time the 3070 may be more worthwhile. Ive, actually compared it against the 2080 Super from last generation. In this video, as Nvidia were saying that the 3060 Ti beats. It so definitely check out that video, if you want to get an idea of how well the 3060 Ti, compares to the more expensive options from last generation and, of course, if youre new to the channel then get subscribed for future comparisons and tech.
