The GPU availability in the market is really bad. The prices of already in the market GPU are ridiculously high. In the middle of this Nvidia launched its RTX 3070 Ti at $600 on June 10, 2021. It is half the price of RTX 3080 Ti selling at $1200. This just shows that how ridiculously expensive RTX 3080 Ti really is.
With the 50% drop in price, we see a 40% drop in core count, 32% less memory bandwidth, 14 fewer ROPs. It comes with just 8GB of VRAM. RTS 3070ti is based on the same G104 silicon as the RTX 3070. With this price, RTX 3070 Ti is slotted in between RTX 3080 and RTX 3070. With the 20% of price increase over RTX 3070, we are getting 4% of more Cores and the same ROPs. As for Nvidia tweaked the memory from GDDR6 to GDDR6X. Where RTX 3070 consumes 220W of power, RTX 3070 Ti consumes 290W. The memory bus is increased from 448GB/s to 608GB/s which is a 36% increase.
How RTX 3070 Ti performs against other GPU in 1440p and 4K segment?
According to these results, RTX 3070 Ti is on average 8% slower than AMD Radeon RX 6800 and 18% slower than AMD Radeon RX 6800XT. It manages to beat the original RTX 3070 with an 8% margin.
RTX 3070 Ti shows 11% margin over RTX 3070 at 4K resolution. But it is 5% slower than the AMD Radeon RX 6800 and 16% slower than the AMD Radeon RX 6800XT.
RTX 3070 Ti consumes more power than RX 6800. The RTX 3070 Ti full system consumption is 20% higher with is a huge difference.
Should you buy the RTX 3070Ti or not?
Actually, it totally depends on you and the availability of the product. Price to performance and more VRAM are better in AMD GPU. Again it totally depends on your requirement, budget, and availability.
