In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB.

The GeForce GTX 1060 has a 127 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. This results in the GeForce GTX 1060 providing 54.3 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 GeForce GTX 1060 has a 127 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. This results in the GeForce GTX 1060 providing 28.2 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 less than a year after the GeForce GTX 1060, 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 GeForce GTX 1060 has 2048 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 GeForce GTX 1060 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 1060 has 80.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1060 is much better than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1060 has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1548 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1060 is 2953. The GeForce GTX 1060 having 1405 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 1060 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1060. The GeForce GTX 1060 requires 45 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 1060 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X 4GB is MSi's higher end take of one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. Part of the Gaming X series, this card features a boosted core clock, Twin Frozr VI cooling system and the usual RGB LED's on the card.

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 1379MHz and goes up to 1493MHz 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 Gaming X will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect the Nvidia GTX 1050 ti Gaming X to deliver around 60+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
The GTX 1050 ti will be ever so slightly faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X by MSI 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 1060 is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-400-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU amd has 10 SM activated, offering 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1506MHz and goes up to 1709MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate that GeForce GTX 1060 offers Performance around the Level of GeForce GTX 980. As such, GeForce GTX 1060 is almost twice as fast as GeForce GTX 960 and even AMD's Radeon RX 480 is beaten in over 5%.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1060 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
