In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050M are massively better than the AMD Radeon R9 M365X 4GB.

The GeForce GTX 1050M has a 729 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the R9 M365X. This results in the GeForce GTX 1050M providing 29.2 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 GeForce GTX 1050M has a 729 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the R9 M365X. This results in the GeForce GTX 1050M providing 33.3 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 GeForce GTX 1050M was released over a year more recently than the R9 M365X, and so the GeForce GTX 1050M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the R9 M365X.

The R9 M365X has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 1050M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GTX 1050M has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GTX 1050M has 48.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 M365X, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 1050M is noticeably better than the R9 M365X.

Both the GeForce GTX 1050M and the Radeon R9 M365X 4GB have 640 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the GeForce GTX 1050M is 1257 and by the R9 M365X is 340. Knowing that the shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1050M is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce GTX 1050M transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R9 M365X. This means that the GeForce GTX 1050M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R9 M365X.

The GeForce GTX 1050M requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 M365X 4GB requires 50 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1050M. The GeForce GTX 1050M requires 25 Watts more than the R9 M365X to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce GTX 1050M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R9 M365X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The latest GeForce GTX 1050m is Nvidia's lower end graphics card designed for laptops, although they have decided to name both the GTX 1050. They share exactly the same perormance. Designed to compete against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the RX 460 or RX 470 and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 960.

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 5 SM activated and thus 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1354MHz and goes up to 1455MHz with the Boost Clock.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 3504MHz which is outstanding.

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 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 50+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 960.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1050 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, so our recommendation would be to use 1600x900 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i7-6700HQ and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
Overview
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Generation of the Graphics Core Next Architecture (GCN).



Architecture
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB Features a GPU Codenamed Venus PRO which is a First Gen GCN GPU and is identical to the Cape GPU used on the Desktop Radeon R7 250X.
Venus PRO has 10 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 625MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it is suited for large laptops.

Performance
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon R9 M265X.
Performance is Comparable to the Desktop Radeon R7 250.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
