Consumers usually use computers for gaming. As such, graphics cards are the most important computer hardware customers, look at while building their computers. However, because of diversity in current-gen GPUs, consumers are prone to buy a GPU they won’t fully utilize. Of course, when building computers, you should look at your use-case scenario, but it cannot be easy to finalize products. For that reason, we’re looking at two of NVIDIA’s picking today; the RTX 3060 Ti Vs 3070.

While the RTX 3060 Ti is a bit cheaper, the RTX 3070 offers much more performance capabilities. If inflation weren’t on the rise today, we would have recommended the 3070 and called it a day. But things are too different than what the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) should be.

For example, a few AMD graphics cards are selling below MSRP. On the other hand, NVIDIA’s offerings are skyrocketing. In essence, when building computers, you need to note the MSRP, actual pricing, and real-life performance of products before buying.

Moreover, talking about AMD, if you’re low on budget, choosing AMD GPUs is better. Although, if you want the most performance, going with an NVIDIA GPU, depending on the budget, is better.

On the contrary, buy one of the new Intel GPUs if you love to live an adventurous life. To that end, you can now understand why consumers find it difficult to find the right products for themselves.

Especially with all the new specifications and hardware capabilities, it can be troublesome unless someone guides you through it. So, without further ado, let’s jump into the specifications for the RTX 3060 Ti Vs 3070 graphics cards!

In light of the above chart, we can see the RTX 3070 winning against the RTX 3060 Ti. However, there are a few areas where the RTX 3060 Ti takes the lead. For example, the RTX 3060 Ti has a more efficient TDP, more memory clock, and the same number of transistors!

But if we look at RT and CUDA cores, the RTX 3070 has a significant lead over its competitor. To clarify, more RT cores mean that a graphics card has greater raytracing capabilities. Although the RTX 3070 isn’t the best raytracing graphics card, its RT capabilities are greater than the RTX 3060 Ti.

Lastly, while looking at the pricing, the RTX 3060 Ti’s inflation rate is significantly higher than the RTX 3070’s. Until now, the better the graphics card, the higher its prices were. That isn’t the case for the RTX 3070, which is only ~11.875% more expensive than the 3060 Ti. To conclude the specifications, the RTX 3060 Ti is good, but the 3070 is better.

Benchmarks For RTX 3060 Ti Vs 3070 For 1080P

All things considered, after knowing the on-paper specifications of the RTX 3060 Ti Vs 3070, let’s check their gaming performance. For the purpose of testing two pieces of hardware, it’s important to test them first practically. In addition, the best way to test a graphics card is to play a few games. The following benchmarks are by Hardware For Gamers.

Testing Rig For the RTX 3060 Ti Vs 3070

By and large, for our first game, we have New World by Amazon Game Studios. Additionally, for those who don’t know, New World is notorious for killing graphics cards. Not only because of its high graphics demands but also because of a weird bug. While the bug has been taken care of, the game is still highly GPU intensive. Also, the CPU requirements for New World aren’t measly either.

Looking at the frame times, the RTX 3070 has significantly faster frames than the RTX 3060 Ti. To clarify, the RTX 3070 has ~40.3% faster frames than its competitor. What’s more, for competitive shooter games, such a massive difference can be a deciding factor for victory. In any case, as New World isn’t a shooter-type game, slower frames won’t affect the gameplay too much.

Secondly, talking about power draw, the RTX 3070 uses more wattage than the RTX 3060 Ti. Although both graphics cards have the same architecture, the power consumption is likely because of greater performance. On the other hand, the RTX 3070 has a lower temperature than the RTX 3060 Ti. Even though the difference is by 1C, it shows that the 3070 has a great heat sink.

Lastly, talking about FPS, the RTX 3060 Ti averages 135 FPS, and the 3070 averages 159 FPS. In other words, the RTX 3070 is ~18% faster than the RTX 3060 Ti in New World. If we look at the current price difference, the RTX 3070 costs ~12% more than the 3060 Ti. Therefore, the RTX 3070 has a greater performance per dollar. So, if you’re confused over which GPU to buy, maybe look towards the RTX 3070.

Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 FPS test at 1080P with the RTX 3060 Ti Vs 3070.
Battlefield 2042 performance test with two NVIDIA graphics cards at 1080P resolution.

In another case, we have Battlefield 2042 by Dice for our next game. Also, Battlefield 2042 is popular amongst streamers and enthusiasts, thanks to its competitive mode. Given that, you need to have a fast frame latency and as much FPS as possible. However, it’s not easy to achieve because of the high demands set by Battlefield 2042. In other words, the shooter game is extremely GPU and CPU intensive.

Looking at the frame times, the RTX 3070 has significantly faster frames than the RTX 3060 Ti. What’s more, with a ~38.65% difference in frame times, the RTX 3070 is the graphics card you want.

Furthermore, talking about the power draw, the RTX 3070 consumes less power than the RTX 3060 Ti. While unknown why, the likely possibility is that the RTX 3070’s chip is more efficient as performance is similar. Moreover, the RTX 3070 has lower temperatures than the RTX 3060 Ti. Despite having a greater wattage requirement, the RTX 3070 is not only consuming less power but is also cooler.

To that end, if we look at the raytracing performance of both graphics cards, there isn’t much difference. So, that implies that you can go with either graphics card if you’re only after raytracing.

Lastly, looking at the FPS, surprisingly, both graphics cards have almost the same FPS. Although the RTX 3070 has a 1% performance uplift, we can practically ignore the difference. The abnormal FPS difference must be because of enabling raytracing in the game.

Forza Horizon 5

Above all, after overtaking the Need for Speed series, the Forza Horizon games are famous for their life-like driving experience. The game also offers amazing graphics, which, in turn, ask for a high-end rig to run. Overall, you need a good graphics card to run Forza Horizon 5 at max settings with raytracing.

Now, talking about the frame times, there is about a ~10% difference between the frame speeds of both graphics cards. Because Forza Horizon 5 isn’t a shooter-type game, the frame lag won’t affect your gaming experience as much. So, frame times shouldn’t be your main concern if you buy a graphics card for such games. However, the story changes if you want to play games such as Battlefield 2042, which we looked at above.

Furthermore, glancing at the power draw of the RTX 3070 Vs 3060 Ti, the RTX 3070 utilizes less power. Without a doubt, this anomaly is because of enabling raytracing. While the RTX 3070 is acceptable for raytracing, the same is not true for the RTX 3060 Ti. Moreover, looking at the temperatures, the RTX 3060 Ti runs hotter than its competitor in Forza Horizon 5.

To conclude, looking at the FPS, the RTX 3070 is slightly faster than the RTX 3060 Ti. Although, with RT on, the RTX 3060 Ti has a better performance per dollar ratio. With a slight 7% performance uplift, the RTX 3070 cannot keep its efficiency lead against the cheaper GPU.

Looking at another shooter-type game, we have Far Cry 6 by Ubisoft for our next test. Subsequently, one of Ubisoft’s most famous games, the Far Cry series, is notorious for its insane CPU and GPU requirements. Also, we must remember that the Far Cry games support AMD graphics cards more than NVIDIA GPUs. Similarly, the abnormal performance charts show that most games prefer one company over another.

In any case, talking about the frame times, we see that the RTX 3070 consistently has faster frames. Especially in shooter games, the RTX 3070 seems to excel in frame times. For example, in Far Cry 6, the RTX 3070’s frames are ~43.4% faster than the RTX 3060 Ti. While Far Cry 6 isn’t competitive, there are chances you might notice the frame lag with the RTX 3060 Ti. 

Furthermore, looking at the power draw, the RTX 3070 is drawing significantly less power than the RTX 3060 Ti. Besides raytracing, no other explanation makes sense because the game is optimized well for graphics cards. Similarly, looking at the temperatures, the RTX 3070 has a much lower temperature than the RTX 3060 Ti.

Lastly, the average FPS of the RTX 3070 is slightly higher than the RTX 3060 Ti. However, with only a 5% uplift, the RTX 3060 Ti has a greater performance per dollar ratio. So, if you’re buying a graphics card for its raw rasterization performance, the RTX 3070 is a good GPU. But, if you’re looking to spend every penny wisely, maybe lean towards the RTX 3060 Ti.

Therefore, if enabling raytracing while getting value is your goal, then the RTX 3060 Ti is the better option. On the other hand, if you only care about raw performance, then the RTX 3070 is the obvious option.

To conclude, your graphics card depends on your budget and use-case scenario. For example, if you want to game at 4K, then the RTX 3060 Ti is useless. Conversely, the RTX 3060 Ti’s value increases if you want to mine cryptocurrency. 

RTX 3070 vs RTX 3060 Ti For 1440P Resolution

While it’s important to test two modern graphics cards at 1080P, it’s equally important to test them at 1440P. Although it feels that way, consumers are shifting to higher resolutions, with 1080P becoming the bare minimum. Therefore, we should check how well the RTX 3060 Ti Vs 3070 graphics cards can handle higher resolutions. However, it’s pretty obvious that neither graphics card supports 1440P; the RTX 3070 is barely acceptable.

The following benchmark results are by Hardware For Gamers. Furthermore, they show that the RTX 3060 Ti gets 60 FPS in almost all games. On the other hand, the RTX 3070 easily exceeds the 60 FPS mark in every game in the benchmark.

In addition, if we look at the average FPS, the 3060 Ti has 667 FPS, and the 3070 has 732. In essence, that’s a ~9.7% performance uplift for the RTX 3070. As you already know, the 3070 costs ~12% more, so if you’re looking at value, the 3060 Ti is better. Meanwhile, if you’re only looking at performance, you should buy the RTX 3070.

RTX 3060 Ti Vs 3070 For 4K Resolution

Finally, talking about 4K resolution, many gamers are beginning to adopt the higher resolution. To explain, the processor can be a reason for lower FPS at lower resolutions. However, at higher resolutions, only GPUs decide the FPS for the most part. While most consumers might know, this phenomenon is known as CPU bottlenecking. Therefore, it’s important to test graphics cards at 4K resolution.

Hardware For Gamers has conducted the following benchmarks we’re using as a reference. Although the RTX 3060 Ti has a better value at 1440P resolution, things begin to change at 4K. What’s more, with both graphics cards barely averaging over 30 FPS, only a few games go over 60 FPS.

Furthermore, looking at the average FPS, the RTX 3060 Ti has 360 FPS, and the RTX 3070 has 407 FPS. The RTX 3070 is 13% faster than the RTX 3060 Ti at 4K resolution. The 3070 is ~12% more expensive than the 3060 Ti; it’s worth buying if you’re going to game at 4K.

To conclude, while both graphics cards aren’t satisfactory for gaming at 4K resolution, the 3070 is better. Likewise, not only in terms of performance but also of performance per dollar. As a result, if you have the budget, going with the RTX 3070 is the better option.

RTX 3070 Vs RTX 3060 Ti Mining Benchmarks

After looking at the gaming performance of both graphics cards, let’s view them in cryptocurrency mining. While many consumers dislike cryptocurrency mining for obvious reasons, many still indulge in the act. In summary, cryptocurrency mining legitimizes cryptocurrency transactions through intense algorithms. After solving one of these algorithms, a miner gets a “Mine Hash.”

To clarify, a graphics card can perform difficult algorithms calculated in Mega Hashes (MH/s). So, the higher the Mega Hash of a graphics card, the better its cryptocurrency mining value is. Also, since the COVID-19 outbreak, GPUs with a better Mega Hash value has become almost impossible to buy.

Because a crypto-mining rig has multiple graphics cards, miners began bulk-buying most graphics cards. The act didn’t only inflate prices but also took most computer hardware out of stock. In any case, moving back to the RTX 3060 Ti Vs 3070, let’s check which graphics card has better value.
