GeForce RTX 3070 vs GeForce RTX 3080

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3070 makes use of a 8 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1500 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM works at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 5888 SPUs as well as 184 Texture Address Units and 96 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce RTX 3080, which has a core clock speed of 1440 MHz and a GDDR6X memory frequency of 1188 MHz. It also features a 320-bit bus, and uses a 8 nm design. It is comprised of 8704 SPUs, 272 Texture Address Units, and 96 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce RTX 3070 (Unknown) MB/sec
Difference: 778547 (-100%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 3080 will be a lot (about 42%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce RTX 3070. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3080 391680 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3070 276000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 115680 (42%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 3070 is the winner, but only just. (explain)

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
