In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB are marginally better than the AMD Radeon RX 560D 2GB.

The GTX 1050 has a 264 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 560D, but the RX 560D has 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050. As a result, the RX 560D exhibits a 6.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the 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 GTX 1050 has a 264 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560D. This results in the GTX 1050 providing 25.9 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 560D was released over three years more recently than the GTX 1050, and so the RX 560D 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 Radeon RX 560D 2GB and the GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 1050 has 112.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560D, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1050 is massively better than the RX 560D.

The Radeon RX 560D 2GB has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560D is 699 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 is 1257. The GTX 1050 having 558 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1050 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 560D.

The Radeon RX 560D 2GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 560D 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
Radeon RX 560D 2GB is a middle-class graphics card based on the third revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU codenamed Polaris 10 which is a 1st gen Polaris GPU, offering 896 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card is rebrand of the Radeon RX 460 and was designed and marketed towards cryptocurrency miners and low to mid-end gaming. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560D 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS. THe low TDP makes it a cost effective choice for cryptocurrency miners.

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 460 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a mid range CPU and 8GB of system memory for optimal performance.
Overview
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.
