GeForce RTX 3080 vs GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3080 features a GPU core clock speed of 1440 MHz, and the 10240 MB of GDDR6X RAM is set to run at 1188 MHz through a 320-bit bus. It also features 8704 SPUs, 272 Texture Address Units, and 96 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, which has core speeds of 1365 MHz on the GPU, and 1188 MHz on the 12288 MB of GDDR6X memory. It features 10240 SPUs along with 320 TAUs and 112 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
