Nvidia RTX 3080 provides 30% more performance than the previous generation Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti at half the price. In this Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti review, we will compare it with Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super, Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti, Nvidia RTX 3070, Nvidia RTX 3080, AMD Radeon RX 6800 and AMD RX 6800XT graphics cards.
Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti is a product castrated on the GA104-300 core of Nvidia RTX 3070. The core code is GA104-300. The transistor scale has reached 17.4 billion and the chip area is 392 square millimeters. It has 5 groups of GPCs and 4864 CUDAs built in. Core, there are 152 texture units, 80 ROP units, 152 Tensor cores, and 38 RT cores at the same time.
The shape of the graphics card is exactly the same as that of the RTX 3070, with both fans on the front. The back panel and PCB board of the fan on the right are hollowed out, and the fan can easily blow through the heat sink fins. From the top perspective, there is a 12Pin power supply interface in the middle.
Three DP 1.4 and one HDMI 2.1 interface. For the time being, we still chose the i9-10900K processor platform. In order to reduce the CPU bottleneck effect, we overclocked the core frequency of i9-10900K to 5.2GHz and the Ring frequency to 4.8GHz.
The motherboard uses Asus ROG MAXIMUS XII EXTREME. This motherboard uses 16+0 power supply, 16-phase power supply is all given to the CPU core, and 0-phase power is given to the core display. MosFET is upgraded to TDA21490, which is currently the highest specification integrated MOSFET. The on-current has also been increased from 55A to 90A, which can easily provide more than 1000W of output power.
The memory must be 32GB, and many 3A masterpieces will have various problems when running under 16GB of memory.
The Zhiqi Royal Halberd F4-4000C15D 8GBx4 package not only has a frequency of 4000MHz, but the timing of 15-16-16-36 is also terribly low, which is lower than most memory with a frequency of 3000MHz, but the default voltage of 1.5V is also relatively It’s high.
In the 2K resolution 3DMark Time Spy test, the RTX 3060 Ti graphics score reached 11,722, the core temperature was up to 69°C, the core operating frequency was 2025MHz, the maximum fan speed was 1446RPM, and the maximum power consumption was 203W. In the 4K resolution 3DMark Time Spy Extreme test, the RTX 3060 Ti graphics score reached 5689 points, the core temperature was up to 68°C, the core operating frequency was 2010MHz, the maximum fan speed was 1502RPM, and the maximum power consumption was 205W.
RTX 3060 Ti is 4% faster than RTX 2080 SUPER at 2K resolution, and has an 8% advantage at 4K resolution. Compared with RTX 3070, RTX 3060 Ti lags behind by 14% at 2K resolution and 16% at 4K resolution.
Among the current mid-to-high-end graphics cards, the power consumption of RTX 3060 Ti is the lowest, and the overall standby power consumption is still slightly superior to AMD graphics cards, but the RTX 3060 Ti is not far behind.
In FurMark baking machine, the power consumption of the whole machine is only 320W, which is 60W lower than RTX 2080 SUPER and 12W lower than RX 6800.
After the stream processor, ROPs, texture unit, Tensor Core, and RT Core are castrated by 1/6, the RTX 3060 Ti loses about 15% of its performance compared to the RTX 3070 with a complete GA 104 core. However, compared with the RTX 2080 SUPER, the RTX 3060 Ti is just 3% stronger at the three resolutions of 1080P, 2K and 4K. I have to admire Lao Huang’s extremely accurate knife skills.
