RTX 3060 Ti vs RX 5700 XT – $400 GPU Comparison!
So what are the differences between them Ive compared both in 13 games at 4K, 1440p and 1080p resolutions, as well as content creator workloads to show you the differences., Starting with the spec differences? Both cards have 8 gig of GDDR6 memory at the same speeds.. The 5700 XT is around 18 months older though, and it uses more power. Both have the same 400 MSRP, but based on what weve, seen from the other Nvidia 3000 series. Gpus availability of the 3060 Ti could be small, leading to higher prices closer to 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. All components with updated prices are linked in the description.. Well, first dig into the gaming results, then check out cost per frame power draw and content creator workloads, afterwards. Assassins, Creed, Valhalla, was tested with the game’s benchmark tool.. The 5700 XT was actually slightly ahead of the 3060 Ti at 1080p, but at higher resolutions the 3060 Ti pulls out in front coming in 6, faster in average frame rate at 1440p and 11 faster 4K. But this is one of the smallest differences between the two out of all 13 games. Tested. Microsoft, Flight Simulator, on the other hand, saw one of the largest differences between these two graphics cards.. The 1 lows from the 3060 Ti were very close to the average FPS of the 5700 XT at 1080p.
Then, at higher resolutions, the 3060 Ti was even further ahead with a 33 higher average FPS at 1440p and a massive 53 improvement at 4K. The largest out of all 13 games at this resolution. Red Dead Redemption 2 was tested using the games benchmark. This was another win for the 3060 Ti, which was 31 faster at 1440p and 40 at 4K.. The gap was smaller comparitively at 1080p, with the 3060 Ti. Just 23 ahead. Battlefield, 5 was tested in campaign mode, and the differences here were much smaller compared to the last couple of games. Tested., The 3060 Ti was still able to pass 60 FPS at 4K, even with the highest ultra setting preset putting it 16 ahead of the 5700 XT granted. You could, of course, just lower settings to improve frame rate. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the game’s benchmark., A larger win for the 3060 Ti in this one, which was 29 faster than the 5700 XT at 1080p, 27, faster at 1440p and 33 faster At 4K. Watch Dogs Legion was also tested with the games benchmark and was a test where the 3060 Ti was offering a significant boost to 1 low performance. At 1080p. For instance, the 3060 Ti was offering a 37 higher 1 low, while the increase to average FPS was lower at 19, then, at higher resolutions, the 3060 Tis 1 low was ahead of even the 5700 XTs average FPS. Ive tested Control with ray tracing and DLSS disabled.
However, these features are benefits on offer with the RTX 3060 Ti that the 5700 XT misses out on.. This game typically favours Nvidia hardware, and that was the case here. At 1080p, the 3060 Ti was 36 ahead of the 5700 XT. The largest difference at this resolution out of all 13 games – tested. Dirt 5, on the other hand, typically favours AMD, so it wasnt too surprising to see the 5700 XT coming out a little ahead at 1080p. However, at higher resolutions, the 3060 Ti is back on top, but again nowhere near as much difference when compared to some of the others. Tested. Ive tested Metro Exodus with the game’s benchmark tool.. This test typically sees small changes to 1 lows compared to average FPS, and that was also the case here.. At 1080p, the 3060 Ti was reaching 25 higher average FPS, then 27, higher at both 1440p and 4K.. The differences in The Witcher 3 were close to the averages of all games tested, though the 5700 XT was still able to run around 60 FPS at 4K, even with the highest ultra setting preset in use. But the 3060 Ti was 25 higher here with a 1 low that was ahead of the 5700 XTs average. Death, stranding wasnt, quite passing 60 FPS at 4K max settings with the 5700 XT. Its not far behind and the 3060 Ti was 22 ahead with a larger 27 boost to the 1 low. Call of Duty.
Modern Warfare was tested in campaign mode and had a below average difference out of the games tested, but nevertheless the 3060 Ti was still the winner, making it kind of an easy pick. If both are the same price. Rainbow, Six Siege, on the other hand, had one of the biggest improvements with the 3060 Ti. This was the only game with Vulkan tested.. The 5700 XT is definitely still offering more than playable frame rates, even at the highest ultra setting preset, but the 3060 Ti was 29 faster at 1080p and 33 ahead at 1440p.. At 1080p, on average over all 13 games tested, the Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti was 18 faster than the Radeon RX 5700 XT. In average. Fps. Only Assassins, Creed, Valhalla and Dirt 5 were performing better on the 5700 XT, but the margins were small. Anyway. Control typically favours Nvidia, so its not too surprising to see it up. The top. Stepping up to 1440p and the 3060 Ti was now over 22, faster than the 5700 XT.. This time the 5700 XT wasnt ahead in any of the 13 games tested.. This trend of bigger differences at higher resolutions is expected, as the GPU can get to work and system limitations depend less on the other components.. The lead of the 3060 Ti increases further at 4K. For this reason now coming out almost 29 ahead of the 5700 XT on average. Some games, like Microsoft, Flight simulator had a massive 50 gain with the 3060 Ti, while others, like Assassins Creed, were much more modest at just 10, showing that differences really come down to The specific game.
, The 3060 Ti is obviously the winner in terms of value. When we look at cost per frame, it costs the same price, but in almost all cases performs better than the 5700 XT., At least, if were working on the assumption of a 400 MSRP. For both, which is all Ive, got to work with, while making this video prior to the launch of the 3060 Ti and seeing what early prices are actually like.. When we look at total system power draw from the wall, the 5700 XT was actually using slightly more power., Although the difference in power draw here is small. If you recall in this game, at 4K, the 3060 Ti was hitting 45 higher average FPS.. 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 titles tested. So take this as an approximation.. The 3060 Ti is more efficient as its using less power, while also performing better in games. Ive, also compared both in content creator workloads to see what the differences are outside of gaming. Ive tested, DaVinci Resolve with the Puget Systems benchmark and the 3060 Ti was scoring Around 33 higher than the 5700 XT a larger difference when compared to most of the games, previously. Ive used Adobe Premiere to export. One of my review videos at 4K and the 3060 Ti was completing the export around 10 faster than the 5700 XT.
So not as big of a difference. Blender was tested with the Open Data benchmark.. The longer classroom test was completing around 43 faster on the 3060 Ti, while the shorter BMW test was completing 81 faster. So some of these types of rendering workloads had big gains with the 3060 Ti.. So as expected, the RTX 3060 Ti is the better choice when compared against AMDs Radeon RX 5700 XT.. This isnt too much of a surprise, given the 3060 Ti is around 18 months. Newer, despite coming in at the same price., The 3060 Ti, of course also has extra benefits like ray tracing and DLSS that the 5700 XT does not have, but given AMD only just recently launched the 6000 series of graphics cards. I wouldnt be surprised if they had a 400 option that does have ray tracing capabilities like a 6700 XT or something but well have to wait and see.. I think thats going to be a much more interesting comparison, but at the time of the 3060 Ti launch, the 5700 XT is the best option from AMD at the 400 price point and thats, why? I thought it would still be worthwhile. Comparing the two. Nvidia also has a 400 option from last generation too. The RTX 2060 Super and Ive compared that against the 3060 Ti in this video over here. So its definitely worth checking out. If you want to get an idea of how far the 3060 Ti has come over what they had available last generation, so Ill see you over in that video and if youre new to the channel, then make sure you get subscribed for future comparisons and tech.
