In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC T 2GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB.

The GTX 1050 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the GTX 1050. This results in the GTX 1050 providing 2 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 has a 50 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 1050 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1050 providing 1.6 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 over three years more recently than the GTX 1050, and so the GTX 1050 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 1050 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 1050 Inno3D 2GB and the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC T 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB and the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC T 2GB are the same, which means the GTX 1050 and the GTX 1050 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB and the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC T 2GB have 640 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the GTX 1050 has 2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 1.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the has GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the GTX 1050 takes the edge.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI OC T 2GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The latest GeForce GTX 1050 Inno 3D edition is a small form factor version of Nvidia's lower end graphics card, designed to compete against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the RX 460 or RX 470 and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 960. it features Inno3D's iChill cooling system.

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 1354MHz and goes up to 1455MHz 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 this card to deliver around 50+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 960.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D edition is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, so our recommendation would be to use 1600x900 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
Overview
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 twin fan cooling system.

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
