In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050.

The RX Vega has a 146 MHz higher core clock speed and 216 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1050. This results in the RX Vega providing 329.8 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 RX Vega has a 146 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 1050. This results in the RX Vega providing 52.7 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 Vega 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 Vega has 6144 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 Vega also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX Vega has 143.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 1050, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1050 has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 3994 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1050 is 1257. The RX Vega having 2737 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX Vega delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB requires 300 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1050 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1050. The RX Vega requires 225 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 1050 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX Vega may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 Pro GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. While the Radeon RX Vega Eclipse and Nova use a slightly faster Vega 10 XT GPU, the Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB will still likely offer performance faster than a GeForce GTX 1070 yet slower than a GTX 1080. Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB GPU has 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This puts its performance roughly in line with $350 GeForce GTX 1070.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1500MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 2048-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 1440p Gaming. The RX Vega Core's performance at this resolution should be excellent, however users with 4K displays may find it bottlenecks performance.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 300W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon RX Vega Core 8GB competes with the GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, which is available for $349.
However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions.
System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560 x1440 (1440p). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.is
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.
