The RTX 4070 Ti is the latest high-end graphics card from NVIDIA, built upon the Ada Lovelace architecture. It features a much more powerful memory subsystem than its predecessor, the RX 6800 XT, offering up to 3.25 times greater bandwidth with 256-bit 16GBps GDDR6 RAM.
In terms of gaming performance, the RTX 4070 Ti outperforms the RX 6800 XT by delivering 5.5% higher average FPS in benchmark tests. In addition, the RTX 4070 Ti offers better power efficiency, consuming 7.1% less wattage on average compared to the RX 6800 XT. This results in an average temperature that is 4.5% cooler, ensuring superior thermal management during demanding tasks.
Let’s take a look at how these two GPUs perform in some of the most popular games in the market. We’ll be using the graphical settings of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Cyberpunk 2077, running at 1080p resolution and the Medium Preset. In Red Dead Redemption 2, the RTX 4070 Ti delivers slightly higher frame rates, though not by a huge margin. It’s a bit closer in Cyberpunk 2077, where the Radeon RX 6800 XT pulls ahead by a smaller margin.
If you’re looking for a GPU that can handle 4K resolutions and demanding titles, the RTX 4070 Ti is the obvious choice. It offers superior ray tracing power that will allow you to enjoy the latest graphics enhancements, while still providing superior value for money compared to the RX 6800 if ray tracing isn’t a major priority for your purchase.
