Our GTX 1080Ti Vs RTX 4060Ti Gaming Benchmark shows whether upgrading to the newer RTX 4060Ti Graphics Card is worth upgrading.
Remember those days when Nvidia released GTX 1080Ti? Within one day, all cards were sold out. The hype was real, delivering the demandable performance and meeting gamers’ expectations. At that time, most games ran easily more than 60fps with this GPU without any lag or any performance & quality loss.
But as technology is moving and updating daily, the old GPUs are getting behind, and new, updated, super-strong versions are taking their place. And this year, Nvidia released one of the 4000 series cards, the RTX 4060Ti GPU. It is the latest Medium gaming range GPU in the market from Nvidia that also can handle 4K games by providing 60+ fps.
Now in this latest-gen situation, it’s time to ask yourself some key questions. Which one do you need for your specific needs? If you hold the old GTX 1080Ti, should you replace it with the newest RTX 4060Ti, or can you keep that on your system? Is ultra or native 1920×1080 resolution enough for your Gaming needs? Do you need a card that can handle 4K gaming?
We decided to test both GPUs based on FPS Benchmarks to get all the answers to the above conclusions. We made a gaming system fully compatible with both GPUs and did experiments by running the latest generation AAA titles.
So now, without further delay, let’s check out GTX 1080Ti vs RTX 4060Ti Gaming Performance Benchmarks and whether it is worth upgrading to the latest 4060Ti if you have the 1080Ti working smoothly.

GTX 1080Ti vs RTX 4060Ti- Final Thoughts
From the above chart list, the gaming benchmark outcomes indicate that the RTX 4060Ti has easily overcome the old GTX 1080Ti in gaming performance. The RTX 4060Ti delivers at least 25-30 fps more in every game.
As the RTX technology & DLSS, RTX 4060Ti is becoming a mainstream feature with every game, which is a huge performance boost over the older Pascal-based GTX 1080Ti GPU. So if you are still running a GTX 1080Ti, maybe it’s time to consider replacing it with RTX 4060Ti.
However, suppose you are not willing to upgrade and would want to stick with it for the next six months. In that case, you can do that as well because performance-wise, if you are gaming on a 1080p or a 2K screen, the GTX 1080Ti, in our opinion, can run for the next couple of months until we see newer Games with more Graphical requirements gets released at the end of this year.
