In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050.

The GeForce GTX 1050 has a 97 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 580, but the RX 580 has 104 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1050. As a result, the RX 580 exhibits a 126.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 1050. 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 1050 has a 97 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 580 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce GTX 1050 providing 3.1 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 RX 580 was released less than a year after the GeForce GTX 1050, 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 RX 580 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 1050, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 580 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 580 has 111.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 1050, which means that the memory performance of the RX 580 is massively better than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1050 has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 580 is 3122 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1050 is 1257. The RX 580 having 1865 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 580 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1050 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 580 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1050. The RX 580 requires 75 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 1050 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 580 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
First off we should point out that this is not the new AMD Vega graphics card line. The new AMD Radeon RX 500 series are an uprated version of the RX 400 series that they are replacing. This Gigabyte RX 580 Gaming graphics card is one of the two more powerful models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500 Series.

This RX 580 is the 4GB version and there is also the higher VRAM version, RX580 8GB available.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 20 XTX, which has 2304 shader processing units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB central processing unit runs at 1257MHz and goes up to a top 1355MHz when in boost and turbo mode. This makes it one of the fastest recorded RX 580s so far

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
The RX 580 4GB has a power TDP requirement of 150W. This means it will require at least a 500W PSU with one dedicated 8-pin connector.

Performance
Early benchmarks indicate that the AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB will be similar in performance to the Nvidia GTX 1060 in terms of gaming performance. This puts the RX 580 4GB about 8% faster than the model it replaced, the AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB. Comparing the RX 580 to RX 570 we see 1440p frame rates around 8-15% better with the RX580 version

System Suggestions
The new Radeon RX 580 Gigabyte Gaming 4GB released on the 18th April 2017 and is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a high-end processor, like the new Ryzen R5 and at least 8GB of RAM for optimal gaming performance.
Overview
The latest GeForce GTX 1050 is 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.

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
The GTX 1050 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 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.
