The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4080: A Comparison

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 4080 are two popular GPUs for gaming at 1440p and 4K resolutions. Priced at $799 and $1,199 respectively, they are seen as a balance between affordability and being overpriced. In this article, we will compare the performance of the two graphics cards across various high-resolution gaming benchmarks and evaluate whether the RTX 4080 justifies the extra $200.

Before delving into the benchmarks, let's discuss the metrics we will be using. We will primarily focus on average FPS (frames per second), 1% percentile, and 1% low average. Average FPS is self-explanatory. The 1% percentile refers to the lowest 1% framerates, indicating the level at which the game performs 99% of the time. The 1% low average is the average of the slowest 1% frames.

Starting with 1440p benchmarks, the GeForce RTX 4080 shows a 31% lead over the RTX 4070 Ti in games like “A Plague Tale,” while maintaining similar lows performance. In “Assassins' Creed Valhalla,” the RTX 4080 is only 14% faster than the 4070 Ti at 1440p. “Cyberpunk 2077” demonstrates good scaling across hardware, with the RTX 4080 being around 31% faster than the 4070 Ti on average. “Dying Light 2” shows a 22% difference between the two cards.

Moving on to other games, “F1 2022” exhibits less than a 10% variance between the RTX 4070 Ti and 4080. “Ghostwire Tokyo” shows almost identical lows performance for both cards. “Hitman 3” is approximately 17% faster on the RTX 4080 than the 4070 Ti. “Hogwarts Legacy” has improved performance since its launch, and the RTX 4080 outperforms the 4070 Ti by 18%.

In “Shadow of the Tomb Raider,” both GPUs average over 200 FPS at 1440p, with the RTX 4080 being around 10% faster due to a CPU bottleneck. “The Callisto Protocol” sees the RTX 4080 leading the 4070 Ti by nearly 30% at 1440p. In “Tiny Tina's Wonderlands,” both GPUs achieve 150 FPS, with the RTX 4080 being 18% faster than the 4070 Ti.

In conclusion, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 generally performs better than the RTX 4070 Ti across a range of games at 1440p. However, the extent of the performance difference varies depending on the game. Gamers looking for top-of-the-line performance may find the extra $200 for the RTX 4080 worth it.
