NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q► remove from comparison
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q (for laptops, GN20-E3, Max-Q) is the former name for a RTX 3060 Laptop GPU with Max-Q technologies. In previous generations, the Max-Q name was used for low power versions. With the RTX 3000 series, every TGP-version can now use Max-Q technologies and all GPUs are called RTX 3060 Laptop GPU (60 - 115W).
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti► remove from comparison
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is high-end desktop graphics card based on the Ampere generation. It uses the big GA102 chip and offers 10,210 shaders and 12 GB GDDR6X graphics memory. The main difference to the expensive RTX 3090 is the reduced VRAM (12 vs. 24 GB and a slight reduction in the shader count (-256 shaders).
Therefore, the gaming performance is quite similar to the RTX 3090 and best suited for 4K gaming with maximum detail settings.
As the RTX 3090, the RTX 3080 Ti is specified with a 350 Watt TDP and therefore quite power hungry (750 Watt power supply recommended).
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti► remove from comparison
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is a fast desktop graphics card based on the Ampere architecture. It uses the big GA104 chip and offers 4,864 cores and 8 GB GDDR6 graphics memory.
The performance in games and 4k resolution is slightly above a desktop RTX 2080 Super. For many games, the performance is sufficient for 4k and maximum details. Enabling raytracing however (without DLSS) will lead to a significant lower performance (although the RTX performance was clearly improved compared to the RTX 2000 series).
The GA104 chip is produced in 8nm at Samsung and the power consumption of the RTX 3060 Ti is specified with 200 Watt (RTX 2070 Super - 215 Watt).
