In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050.

The RTX 2060 has a 11 MHz higher core clock speed and 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 1050. This results in the RTX 2060 providing 109.6 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 RTX 2060 has a 11 MHz higher core clock speed and 15 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 1050. This results in the RTX 2060 providing 20.9 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 RTX 2060 was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 1050, and so the RTX 2060 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 1050.

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 RTX 2060 has 4096 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 1050, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The RTX 2060 has 31.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 1050, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2060 is noticeably better than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 1050 has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 3226 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 1050 is 1257. The RTX 2060 having 1969 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2060 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The RTX 2060 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 1050. This means that the RTX 2060 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 1050.

The GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 1050 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RTX 2060 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 1050. The RTX 2060 requires 75 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 1050 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 2060 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 does support real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of slower GDDR5 memory compared to the GDDR6 model, running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.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.
