In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB.

The Vega Frontier has a 310 MHz higher core clock speed and 208 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. This results in the Vega Frontier providing 347.7 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 Vega Frontier has a 310 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GTX 1050 Ti. This results in the Vega Frontier providing 61.1 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 Vega Frontier was released less than a year after the GTX 1050 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 Vega Frontier 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 Vega Frontier also has superior memory performance overall.

The Vega Frontier has 143.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 1050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the Vega Frontier is massively better than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the Vega Frontier is 4260 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1050 Ti is 1443. The Vega Frontier having 2817 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Vega Frontier delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The Vega Frontier transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1050 Ti. This means that the Vega Frontier is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1050 Ti.

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB requires 275 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the Vega Frontier and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 1050 Ti. The Vega Frontier requires 200 Watts more than the GTX 1050 Ti to run. The difference is significant enough that the Vega Frontier may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 1050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB is a Prosumer Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 XT GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. Vega 10 XT is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1600MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 2048-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 16GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
The Vega 10 GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming. The 16GB HBM2 framebuffer should be enough to prevent it bottlenecking performance in any AAA title at 4K.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB is equal to the GeForce GTX 1080 in terms of gaming performance. However, it is primarily designed as a workstation graphics card and is not great value for money as a gaming GPU.
The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is available in two versions - air cooled and the more expensive water-cooled. Specs are otherwise identical. System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega Nova 16GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
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.
