In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Palit JetStream 8GB Edition are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB.

The GTX 1080 has a 317 MHz higher core clock speed and 112 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 2050 Ti. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 195.2 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 GTX 1080 has a 317 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 2050 Ti. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 61.5 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 GTX 1080 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 2050 Ti, and so the GTX 1080 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 GTX 1080 has 4096 MB more video memory than the GTX 2050 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 has 208.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 2050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the GTX 2050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 Palit JetStream 8GB Edition has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 2050 Ti is 1069 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 5989. The GTX 1080 having 4920 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 2050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 Palit JetStream 8GB 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 GTX 1080. The GTX 1080 requires 105 Watts more than the GTX 2050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 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.

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

GPU
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.

Memory
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.

Performance
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.
Overview
GeForce GTX 1080 Palit JetStream 8GB Edition is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 1080, created by PNY.

Overclock: Central Unit
None.

Overclock: Memory Clock

Cooling Solution
Dual Fan: A Dual Fan design offers double the cooling performance, and combined with the 10CM-10CM Smart Fans, heat is effectively drawn away from hot spots.
