In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050.

The GTX 1080 has a 317 MHz higher core clock speed and 120 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1050. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 213.2 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 GTX 1080 has a 317 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 1050. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 63.6 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 1050 was released less than a year after the GTX 1080, 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 GTX 1080 has 6144 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 1050, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 has 208.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 1050, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1050 has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6255 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1050 is 1257. The GTX 1080 having 4998 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The GeForce GTX 1050 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080. This means that the GeForce GTX 1050 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB requires 300 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1050 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1050. The GTX 1080 requires 225 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 1050 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB is a Special Edition of NVIDIA's High-End GeForce GTX 1080, created by Asus.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit has been increased from 1607MHz to 1671MHz, whereas the Boost Clock can now achieve 1810MHz, instead of 1733MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
DirectCU III Technology with Direct-GPU Contact Heatpipes: Exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology features direct-GPU contact heatpipes that transports more heat away from the GPU and outperform reference designs, achieving up to 30% cooler gaming performance.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 5.7% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 7.4% at 3840x2160.
Overview
The latest GeForce GTX 1050 is Nvidia's lower end graphics card, 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 i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
