In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070.

The GTX 1080 Ti has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed and 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce RTX 2070. This results in the GTX 1080 Ti providing 128.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1080 Ti has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the GeForce RTX 2070. This results in the GTX 1080 Ti providing 40 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GeForce RTX 2070 was released over a year more recently than the GTX 1080 Ti, and so the GeForce RTX 2070 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 1080 Ti.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 3072 MB more video memory than the GeForce RTX 2070, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 Ti has 36.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce RTX 2070, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is noticeably better than the GeForce RTX 2070.

The GeForce RTX 2070 has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti has 3584. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 2070 is 3940 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 Ti is 7654. The GTX 1080 Ti having 3714 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce RTX 2070.

The GeForce RTX 2070 transistor size technology is 4 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080 Ti. This means that the GeForce RTX 2070 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080 Ti.

The GeForce RTX 2070 requires 175 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti requires 220 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce RTX 2070 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 1080 Ti. The GTX 1080 Ti requires 45 Watts more than the GeForce RTX 2070 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 Ti may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce RTX 2070.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 2070 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2070 or the GeForce GTX 1170. Architecture It equips a cut-down Turing GPU Codenamed GT104 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 2304 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1710 MHz, in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 175W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 2070 suggests it will be as fast as the Nvidia Titan Xp, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2070 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is the top 1000 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Pascal architecture.

Architecture
The Pascal architecture aims for twice as much Performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed P102-300-A1 which has 3584 Shader Processing Units, 224 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1480MHz and goes up to 1584MHz, in Boost mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 11.2GB frame buffer of second gen GDDR5X memory, through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1376MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 220W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with 2 power connectors, a 6-pin and an 8-pin connector.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
