The GeForce GTX 1050 2GB from Nvidia is the cheapest 10-series card on the market right now, and it outperforms the AMD graphics cards used in the base PlayStation 4 and Xbox One models in terms of raw performance. 

Surprisingly, the GTX 1050 takes the top position in the US market, narrowly beating the RX 470 4GB. The RX 470, to some extent, is the clear favorite in the UK, with the 1060 3GB close behind. As a result, I would suggest that the GTX 1050 is a fantastic deal. 

This Nvidia card has more memory and the ultimately enabled GP107 processor found in the GTX 1050, making it a stronger performer in all games than any GTX 1050 model. 

In 2021, theIf you plan on playing 1080p esports games, the card is still acceptable. The GTX 1050 also defeats the RX 460, a more significant victory—even if the RX 460 has twice as much VRAM. But the output depends on which games you play. 

GTX 1050 will still be good for 1080 esports, including League of Legends, Starcraft, CS: GO, Fortnite, Overwatch, and Dota 2. The GTX 1050 clocked in at 68 frames per second in both World of Warcraft and Dota 2 at their highest settings. In the most famous game Grand Theft Auto V and Gears of War 4, the grounds had to be reduced to medium, but this resulted in 62 and 65 frames per second, respectively. 

Samsung produces the chip in a 14nm process. It has comparable performance to the GTX 1050 desktop, GTX 1050TI, and even the GTX 950. If you're considering purchasing one of these graphic cards, this information would be helpful.

Depending on the manufacturer, the GTX 1050 comes with 2GB or 4GB of RAM. Its high performance with a TDP of 75W and its ability to run games at 1080p high detail settings were some of its selling points in 2016. 

If you can deal with the 2GB VRAM restriction, the GTX 1050 aims to be the best overall budget GPU. 

The Radeon RX 460 is equipped with 2,048 MB GDDR5 memory connected through a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU operates at a wavelength of 1090 MHz, which can be expanded to 1200 MHz, and the memory works at 1750 MHz (7 Gbps effective). The card managed an average of 63 frames per second (fps) in Overwatch at high settings, which is higher than the magic 60 fps mark for smooth gameplay in full HD. 

The AMD Radeon RX 460 does not need an additional power connector because it is a dual-slot card,

Pros
  • Extremely efficient
  • Excellent price
Cons
  • No SLI support

GeForce GTX 1050 TI

Slot Width Dual-slot
Length 145 mm 5.7 inches
TDP 75 W
Suggested PSU 250 W

The GTX 1050 will still be good for 1080 esports, including League of Legends, Starcraft, CS: GO, Fortnite, Overwatch, and Dota 2. This graphics card is unsuitable for playing newer games released in 2018 or later, as it will make less than 30 frames per second in standard to poor settings. 

In general, the GTX 1050 Ti is 25 to 30% faster than the Radeon hardware, with Hitman - a game that favors AMD hardware if we're operating under DX11 or DX12 - closing the gap.  

However, even in this situation, Nvidia is the apparent winner. While AMD is discounting the RX 460, when a base-level GTX 1050 Ti with no factory OC is outperforming an overclocked Asus Strix product, it's clear that we're dealing with the kind of disparity that we rarely see in the graphics sector. 

The improved performance is beneficial in other areas as well. The 768-core Pascal-based GTX 1050 Ti comfortably defeats the 768-core Maxwell-based GTX 950. (Represented in our tests by the low-power variant, a hard-to-find Asus model that also needs no additional PCI Express power) and, by and exhaustive, the last-gen GTX 960 as well.

The GTX 1050 Ti outperforms the 2GB GTX 960 in memory-intensive games like Assassin's Creed Unity and Hitman, thanks to the extra two gigs of VRAM. 

According to the Steam hardware survey, 1080p is the most common gaming resolution for PC gamers.

The remarkable fact is that the GTX 1050 Ti has more VRAM than its more expensive sibling, and while 3GB is still enough for 1080p gaming, the GTX 1060 can still be pushed to its limits in some situations.

The GTX 1050 Ti is a clear winner, comfortably outperforming both factory's overclocked RX 460 4GB versions we received for review. Nvidia has gotten a lot out of the tiny 75W provided by the motherboard PCI Express power line, and there's nothing else like it on the market as an essential plug-and-play substitute for lower-end desktop PCs. 

Allround, the GTX 1050 Ti is a capable graphics card with a lot to offer. It can plug into any desktop PC, regardless of power supply, as long as a dual-slot, full-height PCI Express port is available - and in that regard, it provides by far the best-performing public in that class of hardware.

You get more for your money, but the GTX 1050 Ti is in a league of its own in terms of its market segment.

Pros
  • Handles all games at Full HD
  • 4GB of RAM
Cons
  • Some games need to be dropped

GeForce GTX 750 Ti

CUDA Cores 640
Base Clock 1020 (MHz)
Boost Clock 1085 (MHz)
Memory Clock 5.4 Gbps

Early in 2014, NVIDIA unveiled the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, a mid-range desktop graphics card. Although the 260X is a rebadged Radeon HD 7790, the 750 Ti is based on Nvidia's latest Maxwell GPU architecture.

It is built on the GM107 chip, which is the first generation of Maxwell architecture. Maxwell was able to outperform the predecessor Kepler and AMD chips in related performance regions by concentrating on energy efficiency. DirectX 11.2 is supported by the GTX 750 Ti, but only at feature level 11 0. 

The 750 Ti card manages 1080p games with high settings with ease. Except for the punishing Metro: Last Light, every game I used for benchmarking ran at a silky smooth 50-60 FPS. 

I'm delighted with how little power it uses and that it doesn't need any extra power connectors.

With the 750 Ti, Nvidia has brought it to AMD. It utilizes more limited power and exceeds both the R7 260X and the HD 7790 in gaming and synthetic benchmarks by an aggregate of 11%. Nvidia's 750 Ti also consumes 55 watts less than AMD's R7 260X, making it nearly twice as energy efficient. The 750 Ti should be if you're looking for a $150 1080p gaming GPU. 

Since this is an entry-level card, it won't play any game at ultra-high settings, but it does have other benefits. One of them is that it reduces power consumption while increasing productivity to new heights. Steam Box builders and home theatre PC owners who value all of those elements make it a serious contender. 

This is an intelligent move by Nvidia, as the less costly 1050Ti is more likely to be purchased on impulse than higher-end Nvidia products like the Titan Black. When you compare the 1050 Ti to other cards in the 700 series, you'll note that it has G-sync. This decreases screen tearing and stuttering caused by the refresh rate. 

Unsurprisingly, the 1050 Ti is a small card, but it could be much smaller than that. It's just 5.7 inches long and has a single-slot configuration. Perhaps more intriguing is the fact that this graphics card does not need any additional power connectors. It's eye-opening to compare this to the R7 line, specifically the 260x.

Pros
  • Excellent power consumption
  • Cool and very quiet
Cons
  • No SLI support

GeForce GTX 770

CUDA Cores 1536
Base Clock 1046 MHz
Texture Fill Rate 134 (billion/sec)
Memory Interface GDDR5

The GTX 770 is an advancement of GTX 680. Higher core and memory clock speeds allow it to outperform the GTX 680, although higher voltages and a higher TDP will enable it to clock faster and make a difference. As a result, the GTX 770 is still very much a copy of the GTX 680, but as the most secured GK104 card yet, it is a worthy successor to the GTX 670. 

With the introduction of the GTX 780 based on GK110, the GTX 770 becomes the generation's flagship GK104 video card. NVIDIA has effectively offered GK104 its version of the GHz Edition treatment to distinguish it from the outgoing GTX 680.  

The GTX 770 is GK104 pushed to its limit with higher clock speeds, a new turbo boost system (GPU Boost 2.0), and a higher power limit. 

As a result, we have a completely enabled GK104 component with all 32 ROPs and 8 SMXes present and clocked at some extremely high clock speeds. 

The GTX 770 occupies a base clock of 1046MHz and a boost clock of 1085MHz, 40MHz (4%), and 27MHz (3%) rise, respectively. This isn't much on its own, but the GTX 770 is also the first desktop GK104 part to have GPU Boost 2.0, which reduces NVIDIA's clock speeds even further. As a result, the GTX 770 hits its peak clocks more often, raising the effective clock speed by more than 4%. 

The most stunning update, however, will be in the memory configuration of the GTX 770. With the GTX 680 already shipping at 6GHz, NVIDIA could only go one way: up, and that's precisely what they've done.  

The GTX 770 is the first product to include 7GHz GDDR5, making it the first. The GTX 770 now has almost 17% more memory bandwidth than the GTX 680, a significant improvement for the card since the 256bit memory bus means NVIDIA has little memory bandwidth to spare for GTX 770's higher GPU throughput. 

Shifting on, in addition to the higher GPU clock speeds, higher memory clock speeds, and the launch of GPU Boost 2.0, NVIDIA has given the GTX 770 a significant increase in TDP, which has both advantages and disadvantages.  

The TDP of the GTX 770 is 230W versus 195W for the GTX 680, and due to GPU Boost 2.0, the old 170W "power target" concept is being phased out completely, so the difference inadequate power consumption would be closer to 60W in some cases. 

While it consumes a little more power than the GTX 680 - less than 10W at full load - it is still much more powerful than the HD 7970 GHz version powered by Tahiti XT. Even when we ran the GTX 770 at its highest overclocked settings, it used about 50W less power.  

Even though it's a little slower than the leading GTX 780 or Titan in these high-resolution 2560 x 1600 benchmarks, it's a great performer. But it's just a smidgeon slower. 

Generally speaking, the GTX 770 has a 10% output advantage over the GTX 660. Because of a higher standard clock and memory frequency, the GTX 770 is faster.

Pros
  • Great build quality
  • Affordable - features all of the GTX 680's performance in a lower price tag
  • Extremely quiet in idle
Cons
  • Lacks backplate
