Game GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 4GB OC Edition

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 4GB OC Edition.

The GTX 2050 Ti has a 270 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 270X, but the R9 270X has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 2050 Ti. As a result, the R9 270X exhibits a 19.7 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 2050 Ti. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 2050 Ti has a 270 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 270X and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 2050 Ti providing 8.7 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 R9 270X was released over three years more recently than the GTX 2050 Ti, and so the R9 270X is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 2050 Ti 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 GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 4GB OC Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The R9 270X has 67.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 2050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the R9 270X is much better than the GTX 2050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 4GB OC Edition has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 2050 Ti is 1069 and the actual shader performance of the R9 270X is 1164. The R9 270X having 95 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R9 270X delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 2050 Ti.

The GTX 2050 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R9 270X. This means that the GTX 2050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R9 270X.

The GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 4GB OC Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 2050 Ti and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 270X. The R9 270X requires 105 Watts more than the GTX 2050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 270X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 2050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 2050 Ti is a rumoured Nvidia lower-end Turing graphics card that will be announced in 2019. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards.

The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Pascal Architecture.

It equips a GPU codenamed GT107 which has [xxx] SM activated and [xxx] Shader Processing Units, [xxx] TMUs and [xxx] ROPs. The central unit runs at [xxx]MHz and goes up to [xxx]MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game.

The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5 through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 3504MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

The GTX 2050 Ti will enable mid-level graphics performance on modern AAA 2019 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 55+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will be faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 1050 Ti

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 2050 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a modern CPU like the i5-7500 and 12GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 4GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 270X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Vapor-X", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 1000MHz to 1020MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1070MHz.
Furthermore, the card has twice as much memory when compared to the reference card. However, this card will not benefit from extra memory and thus such feature ends up being useless.
Expect little or no performance boost over the standard edition and exactly the same performance as "Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition"
