NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050
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 3050► remove from comparison
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 is a mid-range desktop graphics card. It is based on the GA106 Ampere chip and offers 8 GB GDDR6 graphics memory with a 128 Bit memory bus. It offers 2,560 cores and supports PCIe 4.0.
The performance is similar to the older GeForce RTX 2060 and therefore best suited for 1080p gaming of modern and demanding games in high settings.
The GA106 chip offers 3,840 FP32 ALUs of which half can also execute INT32 instructions (i.e. 1,920 INT32 ALUs). With Turing all shaders could still execute FP32 or INT32 instructions. The raytracing and tensor cores on the chip were also improved according to Nvidia. The Ampere chips also include an improved 5th generation video encoder (NVENC for H.264 and H.265) and a 7th generation decoder (for various formats now including AV1).
The GA106 chip is manufactured by Samsung in 8nm (8N), which is not quite able to keep up with the 7nm node at TSMC (e.g. used by AMD and also for the professional GA100 Ampere chip). The TDP of the RTX 3050 is specified at 130 Watt and therefore better than the previous RTX 2060 (160 Watt).
