VideoCardz has shared 3DMark results for NVIDIA’s next Ampere graphics card, the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. The lower-ranged GPU managed to score 30,706 in Fire Strike and 12,175 in Time Spy, which, according to a comparison chart, put it within spitting range of its bigger brother, the GeForce RTX 3070.

More specifically, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 is listed with a 34,200 Fire Strike score and 13,740 Time Spy score. The implication is that the $399 GeForce RTX 3060 Ti will only perform around 10 to 13 percent slower than the $499 GeForce RTX 3070.

“What might be interesting is that RTX 3070 has 1024 CUDA cores more but the card is only 12% faster,” VideoCardz notes. “Custom models should reduce this gap even further.”

The comparison chart also supports NVIDIA’s leaked first-party benchmarks, which suggest that the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti has greater performance than the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER. 3DMark alludes to a 4 to 6 percent difference between these GPUs.

NVIDIA is expected to unveil the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti on December 2, which is next Wednesday. The GPU features 4,864 CUDA Cores, a boost clock of 1,665 MHz, and 8 GB of GDDR6 RAM.
