In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC 2GB.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has a 102 MHz higher core clock speed and 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050. This results in the GeForce GTX 1070 providing 124.5 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 GeForce GTX 1070 has a 102 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1050. This results in the GeForce GTX 1070 providing 51.5 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 was released less than a year after the GeForce GTX 1070, 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 1070 has 6144 MB more video memory than the GTX 1050, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 1070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 1070 has 144.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is massively better than the GTX 1050.

The GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC 2GB has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1070 has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 is 1312 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1070 is 4362. The GeForce GTX 1070 having 3050 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce GTX 1070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1050.

The GTX 1050 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 1070. This means that the GTX 1050 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 1070.

The GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC 2GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1070 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1070. The GeForce GTX 1070 requires 75 Watts more than the GTX 1050 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 1070 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
This is MSI's no frills, yet slightly overclocked version of the GTX 1050, Nvidia's lower end graphics card designed to compete against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the RX 460 or RX 470. This card features an overclocked boost function and a single fan cooling system, the number of fans being the only difference between it and it's OC GT cousin.

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 5 SM activated and thus 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1404MHz and goes up to 1518MHz with the Boost Clock.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 3504MHz which is outstanding.

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
This card will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect it to deliver around 54+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
This card will be ever so slightly faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080 so we recommend 1600x900 in order to get the most out of your graphical settings. We recommend a High-End Processor such as the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 1070 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P104-200-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU and has 15 SM activated, offering 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1506MHz and goes up to 1683MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
The GTX 1070 is a high end performance GPU, capable of gaming at 1080p across all modern 2016 AAA games at high graphics settings and delivering 60+FPS.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1070 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
