In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 560 2GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050.

The GeForce GTX 2050 has a 179 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 560, but the RX 560 has 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 2050. As a result, the RX 560 exhibits a 21 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce GTX 2050. 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 2050 has a 179 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560. This results in the GeForce GTX 2050 providing 24.5 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 RX 560 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 2050, and so the RX 560 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 2050 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 GeForce GTX 2050 has 2048 MB more video memory than the RX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce GTX 2050 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce GTX 2050 has 0.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 2050 is marginally better than the RX 560.

The GeForce GTX 2050 has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 560 2GB has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 2050 is 931 and the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1306. The RX 560 having 375 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 560 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 2050.

The GeForce GTX 2050 requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 560 2GB requires 80 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 2050 and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560. The RX 560 requires 5 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 2050 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 560 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 2050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 2050 is an expect Nvidia low-end graphics card due to launch in 2019. The GTX 2050 is designed to compete against AMD's more affordable gaming cards such as the RX 550 and the RX 560, and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 1050.

Architecture
The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Turing Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Turing T107-400 which has [TBA] SM activated and thus [TBA] Shader Processing Units, [TBA] TMUs and [TBA] ROPs. The central unit runs at [TBA]MHz and goes up to [TBA]MHz with the Boost Clock.

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 2050 will enable low to mid-level graphics performance on modern AAA 2018 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 1050 Ti.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 2050 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 i5-7500 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
Overview
Radeon RX 560 2GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 80W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 900p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 560 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. Higher resolutions will be an issue due to the limited 2GB of VRAM.. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
