Features to consider when looking for a Black Friday RTX 3080 & 3080 Ti deal

Different variations of RTX 30 series GPUs will have a few key features: clock speed and GDDR5 memory.

Clock Speed: You’ll aim to try and grab a GPU with a higher clock speed. The RTX 3080s range between 1.26Ghz and 1.71Ghz, whereas the RTX 3080 Ti ranges between 1.37Ghz and 1.67Ghz.

Memory: The 30 series GPUs have lightning fast GDDR6 memory. Essentially, the more the better.

Both Clock Speed and Graphics Memory relate to how your GPU performs. As noted on the NVIDIA website, the RTX 3080 gets up to roughly 95fps on Control (RTX ON), 81fps on Minecraft (RTX ON) and 60fps on Borderlands 3. Comparatively, the RTC 3080 Ti steams past its little sibling and hits 110fps on Control (RTX ON), 95fps on Minecraft (RTX ON), and 70fps on Borderlands 3.

Both benchmarks suggest incredible performance, though the sleight is handed to the RTX 3080 Ti which offers a better performance.

So, when you’re making a decision this Black Friday – you should really consider how the differences in performance will affect you and your requirements from these GPUs.
