In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti EVGA Classified Kingpin Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac Mini 4GB.

The GTX 1050 Ti has a 231 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 780 Ti, but the GTX 780 Ti has 192 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. As a result, the GTX 780 Ti exhibits a 194.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1050 Ti. 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 231 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 780 Ti, but the GTX 780 Ti has 16 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. As a result, the GTX 780 Ti exhibits a 9.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 1050 Ti. 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 a year more recently than the GTX 780 Ti, and so the GTX 1050 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 780 Ti.

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 780 Ti, 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 780 Ti has 223.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 780 Ti is massively better than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac Mini 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 780 Ti EVGA Classified Kingpin Edition has 2880. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1469 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 780 Ti is 3275. The GTX 780 Ti having 1806 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 780 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GTX 1050 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 780 Ti. This means that the GTX 1050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 780 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac Mini 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 780 Ti EVGA Classified Kingpin Edition requires 250 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 780 Ti. The GTX 780 Ti requires 175 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 780 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Zotac GTX 1050 Ti Mini edition is Zotac's slightly overclocked small form factor version of the GTX 1050. 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 a slightly overclocked 1303MHz and goes up to 1417MHz 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 Mini Edition 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 to deliver around 57+ 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
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti mini Edition by Zotac 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 780 Ti EVGA Classified Kingpin Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 780 Ti.
This edition comes with a custom double fan cooling solution which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 780 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 875MHz to 1072MHz while its boost clock is now of 1137MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Benchmarks indicate a 10% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this card surpasses the mighty GeForce GTX 690.
