In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8.

The GTX 1050 has a 423 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 20.3 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 423 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1050 providing 13.5 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 Vega was released over three years more recently than the GTX 1050, and so the RX Vega 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.

The RX Vega has 2048 MB more video memory than the 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 246.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the GTX 1050.

The Radeon RX Vega 8 has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 841 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 is 1257. The GTX 1050 having 416 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RX Vega performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Inno3D 2GB requires 75 Watts to run but there is no entry for the RX Vega. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050. The RX Vega has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the GTX 1050. The difference is significant enough that the RX Vega may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Radeon RX Vega M GL is a dedicated Graphics processor found in Intel's Desktop 8th Gen G-Series CPUs. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 20 Compute Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 931MHz and goes up to 1011MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GH has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.4Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 179.2GB/s. Performance The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1050. Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega M GH.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.

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 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.

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.

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.
