In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB.

The GTX 1080 has a 418 MHz higher core clock speed and 112 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 211.4 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 1080 has a 418 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 68 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 less than a year after the GTX 1080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 1080 has 4096 MB more video memory than the GTX 1050 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 has 211.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1443 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6383. The GTX 1080 having 4940 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080. The GTX 1080 requires 105 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 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.

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

GPU
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.

Memory
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.

Performance
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.
Overview
GeForce GTX 1080 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 1080, created by MSI.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1607MHz to 1708MHz, whereas the Boost Clock can now achieve 1847MHz, instead of 1733MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock has been increased from 1250MHZ to 1263MHz.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool. TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 5% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 7% at 3840x2160.
