In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB are very slightly better than the AMD FirePro S9150.

The GTX 1050 Ti has a 492 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro S9150, but the FirePro S9150 has 128 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. As a result, the FirePro S9150 exhibits a 91.6 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 492 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro S9150, but the FirePro S9150 has 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. As a result, the FirePro S9150 exhibits a 13.1 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 a year more recently than the FirePro S9150, and so the GTX 1050 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the FirePro S9150.

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 FirePro S9150 has 12288 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 FirePro S9150 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro S9150 has 207.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro S9150 is massively better than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro S9150 has 2816. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1561 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro S9150 is 2534. The FirePro S9150 having 973 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the FirePro S9150 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 FirePro S9150. This means that the GTX 1050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the FirePro S9150.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Asus ROG Strix Gaming OC 4GB requires 75 Watts to run and the FirePro S9150 requires 235 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti. The FirePro S9150 requires 160 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the FirePro S9150 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.
FirePro S9150 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.

It's based on the Hawaii XT Core (same used on Radeon R9 290X) and therefore offers 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs on a 512-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.

Compared to Radeon R9 290X, its central unit is slightly lower and overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9150 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
