In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7870 PCS+ Vortex II Edition.

The GTX 2050 Ti has a 140 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7870, but the HD 7870 has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 2050 Ti. As a result, the HD 7870 exhibits a 30.1 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GTX 2050 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 2050 Ti has a 140 MHz higher core clock speed than the HD 7870 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GTX 2050 Ti providing 4.5 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 HD 7870 was released over three years more recently than the GTX 2050 Ti, and so the HD 7870 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 2050 Ti 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 2050 Ti has 2048 MB more video memory than the HD 7870, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The HD 7870 has 47.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 2050 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the HD 7870 is noticeably better than the GTX 2050 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB has 768 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7870 PCS+ Vortex II Edition has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 2050 Ti is 1069 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7870 is 1251. The HD 7870 having 182 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 2050 Ti performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GTX 2050 Ti transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 7870. This means that the GTX 2050 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 7870.

The GeForce GTX 2050 Ti 4GB requires 75 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7870 PCS+ Vortex II Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GTX 2050 Ti and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the HD 7870. The HD 7870 has been recommended a PSU with 200 Watts more than the GTX 2050 Ti. The difference is significant enough that the HD 7870 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 2050 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The GeForce GTX 2050 Ti is a rumoured Nvidia lower-end Turing graphics card that will be announced in 2019. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards.

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

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GT107 which has [xxx] SM activated and [xxx] Shader Processing Units, [xxx] TMUs and [xxx] ROPs. The central unit runs at [xxx]MHz and goes up to [xxx]MHz 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 2050 Ti will enable mid-level graphics performance on modern AAA 2019 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 1050 Ti

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 2050 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a modern CPU like the i5-7500 and 12GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
Radeon HD 7870 PCS+ Vortex II Edition is a special edition of Radeon HD 7870.
This is one of today's most powerful editions of the reference as it features increases in both the core and memory clocks that went from 1000MHz to 1150MHz and from 1200MHz to 1250MHz.
Benchmarks indicate the performance boost is quite extreme and around 8% when compared to the reference Radeon HD 7870.
