In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 EVGA 3GB Edition.

The GTX 1050 Ti has a 518 MHz higher core clock speed but 16 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 580. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 1050 Ti manages to provide 12.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 1050 Ti has a 518 MHz higher core clock speed but 16 fewer Render Output Units than the GTX 580. The lower ROP count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the GTX 1050 Ti manages to provide 4.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1050 Ti was released over three years more recently than the GTX 580, and so the GTX 1050 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 580 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GTX 1050 Ti has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 580, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 580 has 80.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 580 is much better than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA 3GB Edition has 512. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1443 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 580 is 791. The GTX 1050 Ti having 652 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 580 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 1050 Ti transistor size technology is 24 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 580. This means that the GTX 1050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 580.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA 3GB Edition requires 244 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 580. The GTX 580 requires 169 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 580 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470.

The Pascal Architecture aims for twice as much performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.

It equips a GPU codenamed GP107-400 which has 6 SM activated and 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1290MHz and goes up to 1392MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game.

The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 3504MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

The GTX 1050 Ti will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 55+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will be faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a modern CPU like the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
GeForce GTX 580 EVGA 3GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 580, created by EVGA.

Overclock: Memory Clock

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 3GB - a gimmick in most situations, as the graphics card doesn't prove to be powerful enough to run under circumstances in which 3GB are needed.
