In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050.

The GeForce GTX 1050 has a 179 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 560, but the RX 560 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1050. As a result, the RX 560 exhibits a 21 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 179 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560. This results in the GeForce GTX 1050 providing 24.5 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 560 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 Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB and the GeForce GTX 1050 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce GTX 1050 has 0.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1050 is marginally better than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1050 has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1306 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1050 is 1257. The RX 560 having 49 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 560 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1050 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce 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
\\r\\Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

\\r\\nGPU
\\r\\nIt equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

\\r\\nMemory
\\r\\nThe GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

\\r\\nPower Consumption
\\r\\nWith a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

\\r\\nPerformance
\\r\\nThis graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. 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 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1080p screen res and expect around 45+FPS. It may struggle with the latest high-end AAA titles due to the limited available VRAM.

\\r\\nSystem Suggestions
\\r\\Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal 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.
