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 2050.

The GTX 1080 has a 317 MHz higher core clock speed and 120 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 2050. 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 2050. 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 GTX 1080 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 2050, and so the GTX 1080 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 1080 has 4096 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 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 has 208.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 2050, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the GeForce GTX 2050.

The GeForce GTX 2050 has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 2050 is 931 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6255. The GTX 1080 having 5324 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 2050.

The GeForce GTX 2050 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080. This means that the GeForce GTX 2050 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080.

The GeForce GTX 2050 requires 75 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB requires 300 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 2050 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080. The GTX 1080 requires 225 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 2050 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 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
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.
