In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition.

The GTX 1050 Ti has a 477 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 670, but the GTX 670 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. As a result, the GTX 670 exhibits a 35.7 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 477 MHz higher core clock speed than the GTX 670 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 1050 Ti providing 15.2 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 1050 Ti was released over three years more recently than the GTX 670, 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 GTX 670 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 670, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GTX 670 has 80.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 670 is much better than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition has 1344. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1561 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 670 is 1317. The GTX 1050 Ti having 244 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 670 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 1050 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 670. This means that the GTX 1050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 670.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition requires 170 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 670. The GTX 670 requires 95 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 670 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Asus GeForce GTX 1050 Ti ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB is Asus's flagship version of the 1050 Ti. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. It features a heavily boosted clock, a non stock cooler and an extra DVI slot.

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.

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 on an extra 6-Pin connector for power.

Performance
The GTX 1050 Ti ROG Strix Gaming OC 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 59+ 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
This card 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.
GeForce GTX 670 PNY 2GB Edition is a renamed GeForce GTX 670 with no new features - not even a new cooling system. Its performance is exactly like the reference card.
