NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 vs. RTX 4080: The Battle of the Best 1440p and 4K GPUs

The GeForce RTX 4070 and 4080 are part of NVIDIA's Ada Lovelace family. These GPUs come with higher costs compared to their predecessors but offer lukewarm generation uplifts. In this article, we will compare the RTX 4070 and 4080 in terms of performance for 1440p and 4K gaming.

Here are the specifications for the GPUs:

– RTX 4070: AD104 GPU Die, 7,680 CUDA cores, 607 RT Cores, 240 Tensor Cores, base clock of 2,310 MHz, boost clock of 2,610 MHz, and 12GB GDDR6X memory.
– RTX 4080: AD103 GPU Die, 9,728 CUDA cores, 646 RT Cores, 304 Tensor Cores, base clock of 2,205 MHz, boost clock of 2,508 MHz, and 16GB GDDR6X memory.

The benchmarks for both GPUs include rasterized and ray-traced games, with ten tests per segment. The test bench used for the comparisons consists of an Intel Core i9-13900K CPU, ASUS ROG Z790 Maximus Hero motherboard, 16GB x2 @ 6000MT/s CL38 memory, and Corsair HX1000i PSU.

In terms of 1440p gaming benchmarks, the RTX 4080 showcases better performance compared to the RTX 4070 in games like A Plague Tale: Requiem, Assassins’ Creed Valhalla, and Dying Light 2. The RTX 4080 has an advantage of around 35-40% over the RTX 4070 in A Plague Tale and maintains a lead of approximately 40% in Assassins’ Creed Valhalla. Additionally, Dying Light 2 runs significantly faster on the RTX 4080 with an 80% advantage over the RTX 4070.

Ghostwire Tokyo and Hitman 3 also show performance differences between the two GPUs, with the RTX 4080 being 45% and 25% faster, respectively.

Moving on to 4K gaming benchmarks, the article does not provide any information, but it is likely that the RTX 4080 will continue to outperform the RTX 4070.

Overall, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 shines in terms of performance compared to the RTX 4070 in both 1440p and potentially 4K gaming.
