In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB.

The GTX 1050 Ti has a 592 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7950, but the HD 7950 has 288 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. As a result, the HD 7950 exhibits a 202 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 592 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7950, but the HD 7950 has 64 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. As a result, the HD 7950 exhibits a 32.3 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 over three years more recently than the HD 7950, and so the GTX 1050 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 7950 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 HD 7950 has 5120 MB more video memory than the GTX 1050 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the HD 7950 also has superior memory performance overall.

The HD 7950 has 607.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7950 is massively better than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire has 5376. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1561 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7950 is 3656. The HD 7950 having 2095 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the HD 7950 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 HD 7950. This means that the GTX 1050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 7950.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire requires 540 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti. The HD 7950 requires 465 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7950 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB is currently Zotac's highest overclocked version of the GTX 1050, 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 1392MHz and goes up to 1506MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game, staggering when you consider the reference's boost clock speed is 1392Mhz also.

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
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 the Nvidia GTX 1050 OC Edition ti to deliver around 62+ 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
Zotac's overclocked GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB 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.
Radeon HD 7950 3-way Crossfire is a solution of three Radeon HD 7950 put together using AMD'S Crossfire technology.
Check the page of Radeon HD 7950 to know more about its chip.
Crossfire relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, is somewhat superior to a single Radeon HD 7990 performing by itself it might be worse (depending on whether or not the 3D game supports crossfire or in the graphics driver) than a single Radeon HD 7950. Expect this combination to draw up to 540 Watt though the average power consumption should be slightly lower.
Even the most demanding games will run at the highest settings.
