In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050.

The GTX 1060 has a 253 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 2050. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 74.4 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 1060 has a 253 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 2050. This results in the GTX 1060 providing 33.8 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 GTX 1060 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 2050, and so the GTX 1060 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 GTX 1060 has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 2050, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 1060 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1060 has 80.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 2050, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1060 is much better than the GeForce GTX 2050.

The GeForce GTX 2050 has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 2050 is 931 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1060 is 3171. The GTX 1060 having 2240 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1060 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 2050.

The GeForce GTX 2050 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1060. This means that the GeForce GTX 2050 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 2050 requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1060 EVGA SC GAMING 6GB requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 2050 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 1060. The GTX 1060 requires 45 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 2050 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1060 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to 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
EVGA's GeForce GTX 1060 Superclocked GAMING card is another small form factor single fan performance graphics card, based on the Pascal Architecture.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-400-A1 which is a First Gen Pascal GPU and has 10 SM activated, offering 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 48 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1607MHz and goes up to 1835MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Benchmarks indicate that the GeForce GTX 1060 offers performance just a bit lower than the GeForce GTX 980. As such, GeForce GTX 1060 is far faster than its predecessor the GeForce GTX 960 and even AMD's new Radeon RX 480 is comparative to this card.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 1060 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal gaming Performance.
