PC and gaming enthusiasts should look at Fortnite benchmarks for the RTX 3060 Ti vs 3070 Ti if they are evaluating between the two. Fortnite is a good game to benchmark a graphics card for several reasons. First, it is one of the most popular games in history, currently being played by over 120 million active gamers. Second, Fortnite’s system requirements have graphics requirements similar to most new games being released. Third, it is a first-person shooter where FPS (frames per second) matters. And lastly, if you play the game and are looking to upgrade your graphics card, then it is good to know how it will perform.
Overview of The RTX 3060 Ti
The RTX 3060 Ti is in a lower tier of NVIDIA’s 30x family of graphics cards. That being said, it is also a jump up from its predecessor the 2060 Super with almost double the CUDA cores. The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti will give you the horsepower to play Fortnite on Epic graphics settings. The system requirements for Fortnite only call for 4GB of VRAM for Epic settings, and the RTX 3060 Ti comes with 8GB VRAM.
Overview of The RTX 3070 Ti
The RTX 3070 Ti is considered a mid-range graphics card in NVIDIA’s 30x family of graphics cards. Comapred to its predecessor, the 2070 Super it almost triples in CUDA cores. It also has 20% more CUDA cores than the RTX 3060 Ti, and a 5% increase in boost clock speed. A big difference between the specs of the RTX 3060 Ti and the RTX 3070 tie lie within the memory type. The RTX 3060 Ti has GDDR6 memory, whereas the 3070 Ti has GGR6X memory. Moving from GDDR6 to GDDR6X has a roughly 35% increase in memory bandwidth performance, which means you will be able to pump out more frames per second.
Streaming Comparison on Fortnite
Both the RTX 3060 Ti and the RTX 3070 Ti will work well for streaming your Fortnite feed. Streaming Fortnite can impact FPS by anywhere from 5 to 20 FPS. That may not be enough to make a noticeable impact on either of these graphics cards when playing Fortnite.
Price Comparison – RTX 3060 Ti vs RTX 3070 Ti
How do you really compare the price of a clearly superior graphics card? The RTX 3070 Ti has many advantages to it, but is it really worth the extra money? There is a 33.3% increase in the MSRP value of the 3070 Ti over the 3060 Ti. From a technology spec point of view, it may be hard to justify at first glance. You’re not getting any extra VRAM and the the boost clock ratio is only about a 5% difference. We need to look at the benchmarks in order to really see if the value is there.

Fortnite Benchmarks for the RTX 3060 Ti vs 3070 Ti
The 3070 Ti has about a 26% performance advantage over the RTX 3060 Ti. This is according to the two benchmarks illustrated in the graph above. The benchmarks are on 1080P resolution with Epic presets. The two systems doing the benchmark were fairly comparable, but may have a slight impact on performance differences. 1080P resolution was used for this benchmark because that is what is used in e-sports and is most widely used by gamers who play first-person shooters like Fortnite.
Is the Price Worth it? 3060 Ti Vs 3070 Ti
The 3070 Ti is roughly going to be 30% more expensive than the 3060 Ti. Answering the question, is it worth it to by a 3070 Ti over a 3060 Ti for Fortnite is difficult. It comes down to a lot of personal dependencies. Are you planning on buying a higher-performance and higher-resolution monitor? Are you going to play other games, like Elden Ring? How would it impact your budget and are there other components, like RAM that would reap more value? If the answers to the questions are no, then the 3060 Ti is going be a good graphics card for Fortnite, while allowing you to stream if that’s what you’re into.
