The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti posts strong performances in CUDA, OpenCL and Vulkan benchmarks
NVIDIA may still only advertise three RTX 30 series cards, but a fourth is definitely on its way. In fact, there may be up to four more cards by January 2021, but the RTX 3060 Ti is next up for NVIDIA. Due to arrive this week, the RTX 3060 Ti has already been spotted on multiple benchmarking websites, while one board partner inadvertently leaked the specifications on the card.
Now, Geekbench has updated its CUDA, OpenCL and Vulkan benchmarks to reflect the RTX 3060 Ti, giving us an early indication of where it places relative to new graphics cards. Unsurprisingly, the RTX 3060 Ti cannot match the performance of the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, but it is not far away from the RTX 3070. According to the most recent chart, the RTX 3060 Ti is around 8% shy of the RTX 3070 in OpenCL and a similar amount ahead of the RTX 2080 SUPER.
The RTX 3060 TI outscores the RTX 2080 SUPER by a comparable margin in the CUDA benchmark, although it slips to 12% behind the RTX 3070. Oddly, the RTX 3060 finishes ahead of the RTX 3070 and RTX 2080 SUPER in Vulkan, and by a large margin at that. Its score of 107,279 puts the RTX 3060 Ti just 4% behind the TITAN RTX, while a 16% gap to the RTX 3080 emerges.
The RTX 3060 Ti also gets within 2% of the AMD Radeon RX 6800 in OpenCL. However, the Ampere card has a 21% lead in Vulkan where it even outperforms the RX 6800 XT by 8%. You can view the most charts at the time of writing below.
