The RTX 4070 Ti Beats the 3090 Ti in the Octanebench Database

The RTX 4070 Ti was spotted by LaptopVideo2Go and Videocardz in the Octanebench database beating the older Nvidia Geforce 3090 by a solid 5%. This is a significant difference, as the RTX 4070 Ti benefits from Nvidia’s latest Lovelace architecture that brings ray tracing and general performance improvements.

The 4070 ti has the advantage of higher clock speeds, more GDDR5 memory and more RT cores than the 3090. Those specs should lead to better gaming performance, but they can also help in professional applications like 3D rendering and video editing.

When running the 3DMark Vantage benchmark, the 4070 ti outperformed the 3090 by 12%. That was on an aggregate basis across 18 different combinations of games and resolutions.

Nvidia’s latest graphics cards are designed to handle 4K and ray tracing, but the RTX 4070 Ti is still a good card for 1440p gaming and can even handle DLSS 3.0 at these resolutions. However, it starts to struggle with ray tracing and ticking all the boxes when you start gaming at these resolutions.

The RTX 4070 Ti is a great option for gamers and professionals alike who want to game at high resolutions without sacrificing detail. The new card consumes less power, too, thanks to its Ada Lovelace architecture. This could make the GPU more desirable for people who are concerned about power consumption, especially if they’re not planning on moving to higher resolutions anytime soon. The new GPU should also have longer longevity than the 3090.
