NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti vs AMD Radeon RX 6700
Comparison of graphics card architecture, market segment, value for money and other general parameters.
General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
Parameters of memory installed: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors have no dedicated VRAM and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones (so-called Founders Edition for NVIDIA chips). OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.
APIs supported, including particular versions of those APIs.

Competitors of Radeon RX 6700 from NVIDIA
We believe that the nearest equivalent to Radeon RX 6700 from NVIDIA is GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
Here are some closest NVIDIA rivals to Radeon RX 6700:
Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
Wider memory bus (352 vs 192 bit)
More pipelines (3584 vs 2304)
Higher memory bandwidth (484.4 vs 384 GB/s)
CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture - an API for video card computing power usage in tasks different from 3D graphics processing. Can be used for physics simulation for instance)
G-SYNC (removes screen tearing by telling the display when to renew the image. Only works with G-SYNC compatible displays)
Vulkan (a contemporary API for graphics acceleration, based on now-discontinued Mantle)
Advantages of AMD Radeon RX 6700
Much newer (18 March 2021 vs 28 February 2017)
Cheaper ($995 vs $1016)
Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 16 nm)
Lower power consumption (180W vs 250W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
