In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB.

The GTX 1050 Ti has a 240 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 960 Ti, but the GTX 960 Ti has 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. As a result, the GTX 960 Ti exhibits a 38.9 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 1050 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 1050 Ti has a 240 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 960 Ti, but the GTX 960 Ti has 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. As a result, the GTX 960 Ti exhibits a 25.9 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the GTX 1050 Ti. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 1050 Ti was released less than a year after the GTX 960 Ti, 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 GTX 1050 Ti has 2048 MB more video memory than the GTX 960 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 960 Ti has superior memory performance.

The GTX 960 Ti has 112.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 960 Ti is massively better than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1443 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 960 Ti is 1809. The GTX 960 Ti having 366 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 960 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GTX 1050 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 960 Ti. This means that the GTX 1050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 960 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB requires 140 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the GTX 960 Ti. The GTX 960 Ti requires 65 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 960 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470.

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 6 SM activated and 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1290MHz and goes up to 1392MHz 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 1050 Ti 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 55+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will be faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a modern CPU like the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
Overview
GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB is an upcoming high-end Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
The first variant of the Maxwell Architecture succeeds the Kepler Architecture. Despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, it has an extremely large L2 Cache which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-200-KD which has 12 SM activated and thus offers 1536 Shader Processing Units, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at ????MHz and goes up to ????MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1753MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 140W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Coming Soon!

System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 960 Ti 2GB.
