    GTX 1050 Ti vs GTX 1060 3GB?

    Basically the title. Buying a gift for a friend.

    Which one performs better in WoW? Other games: GTA Online, remastered Skyrim, Bioshock, Deus Ex. 1 screen on 1080p.

    Or maybe you can suggest me a different card? I've got trouble finding the right one with so many different cards with the same name



    Thank you

    P.S. He has a 500W PSU so that's not an issue.

    RX 470 got a nice price cut.

    I wouldnt touch AMD products with a 10 foot pole if you play any blizzard titles. That said, it really depends on pricing. I personally think the 1050ti has no reason for existing, the 1050 is the far better bargain so the choice would be 1050 vs 1060 3gb, you would have to show us the best pricing for your country to give an answer.

    It's the same price as the GTX 1060. Doesn't seem worth it to me.

    I use tweakers.net to find prices. I ordered the 1060 now, but it is out of stock so I still have time to cancel. And I've got 2 weeks to find a card any advice?

    from the stores you linked, https://azerty.nl/8-6932-945853/xfx-...ort-dvi-d.html


    the rx 470 is way better than a gtx 1050ti ( gtx1050ti doesnt worth buying right now, only if the prices drop) , if you cant get the 1060 3gb you should buy the rx 470 or look for rx 480 4gb model.

    1050 Ti is pretty much equal to (or 3-5% better than) GTX 960, while being ~40$ cheaper.

    RX 470 is still stupidly expensive in the stores you linked. You would always get a 1060 3Gb over it anyway.

    At those prices, go for the 1050ti or 1060 3Gb if you're feeling generous.

    I'm pretty sure that either the 1050 or 1050 ti will be more than enough to max out most games on a 1080p monitor. If you're interested in running an Oculus or Vive in the future, it looks like the 1050 Ti might meet the requirements as well. But if you want to be safe, the 1060 will for sure.

    Depends on what you mean by max out. If you mean max settings with stable 60+ FPS, no, not really.

    Anno 2205, the 1050ti can't even manage 30FPS, so the 1050 certainly won't.

    https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...aming_X/8.html
    Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, 36.6 FPS, so not really here either.

    https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...aming_X/9.html
    BF4, not quite 60 FPS there.

    https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...ming_X/10.html
    Batman: Arkham Knight, the ti yes, the 1050 not quite.


    I could go on, but I won't. I would not consider the lowest end GPU from the current tier that still qualifies as a gaming card to be able to max out current games though. It's the lowest end you can be and still be considered a gaming GPU. It's made for Low-Medium settings and can probably get High on some games that are not quite as graphically intensive. Saying it can max out most games though would be false and expecting way too much out of a budget GPU.
