In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050M Ti 4GB are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4GB.

The GTX 1050M Ti has a 567 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 M395X, but the R9 M395X has 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050M Ti. As a result, the R9 M395X exhibits a 30.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1050M 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 1050M Ti has a 567 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 M395X and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1050M Ti providing 18.2 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 1050M Ti was released over a year more recently than the R9 M395X, and so the GTX 1050M Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the R9 M395X.

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 1050M Ti 4GB and the Radeon R9 M395X 4GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The R9 M395X has 47.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050M Ti, which means that the memory performance of the R9 M395X is noticeably better than the GTX 1050M Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050M Ti 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 M395X 4GB has 2048. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050M Ti is 1443 and the actual shader performance of the R9 M395X is 1259. The GTX 1050M Ti having 184 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the R9 M395X performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 1050M Ti transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R9 M395X. This means that the GTX 1050M Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R9 M395X.

The GeForce GTX 1050M Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 M395X 4GB requires 125 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050M Ti. The R9 M395X requires 50 Watts more than the GTX 1050M Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 M395X may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050M Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1050M Ti is the laptop version of one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. This card has exactly the same performance as the desktop version, only for the laptop market.

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

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.

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.

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 i7-6700k and 8GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
Radeon R9 M395X 4GB is a High-End Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture (CGN).

Radeon R9 M395X 4GB Features a GPU Codenamed Amethyst XT which is a Third Gen GCN GPU and is identical to the Tonga XT GPU used on the Desktop Radeon R9 380X.
Amethyst XT has 32 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

The Central Unit is Clocked at 723MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 125W, it is suited for very large laptops.

Radeon R9 M395X 4GB is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon R9 M295X 4GB.
Performance is Comparable to the desktop Radeon R9 280. Therefore, even GeForce GTX 970M is still faster.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 M395X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
