The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti matches the RTX 2080 SUPER in Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks, but AMD's Radeon RX 6800 leaves it in the dust
NVIDIA is believed to have the RTX 3060 Ti ready for release, with December 2 targeted as an announcement date for the card. The RTX 3060 Ti has already been seen on Geekbench, while Videocardz has published a leaked performance slide from what seems to be NVIDIA's launch deck. Now, the RTX 3060 Ti has appeared in the benchmark rankings of Ashes of the Singularity.
The RTX 3060 Ti has been benchmarked twice so far, both with an Intel Core i7-8700K and 32 GB of RAM. We have included screenshots of the results below, but you can view all the available listings here in case any more are added. The results do not offer any details on the RTX 3060 Ti, but they do allow us to compare it against contemporary cards like the RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 3070 and recent offerings from AMD.
The good news is that the RTX 3060 Ti essentially matches the performance of the RTX 2080 SUPER with the same CPU. You can view the Crazy_1080p and Crazy_4K preset results for the RTX 2080 SUPER via the hyperlinked presets. However, scores of 7,900 in Crazy_1080p and 6,300 in Crazy_4K mean that the RTX 3060 Ti is well off the performance of the Radeon RX 6800 and, in turn, the RX 6800 XT.
Similarly, the RTX 3060 Ti offers about 87% of the performance of the RTX 3070 at 1080p, a gap which narrows to 8% at 4K. Overall, it is a good showing for the RX 6800 series, although NVIDIA is expected to pitch the RTX 3060 Ti at just US$399, which is much cheaper than any of AMD's RX 6000 series cards.
