GTX 660 = 1050 Ti?

I just realized that someone upgrading for a GTX 660 was looking at a 1050 Ti, and they have virtually the same performance in games, even though the 660 is quite a few years older and just one step up. Is there something that I am missing?

well, optimalisation for newer gpu's is a thing. and the 660 ti performs about the same as a 1050 ti in benchmarks, but not in real life workloads

No the 1050 Ti is faster than the GTX 660. The 1050 Ti resembles more the likes of the GTX 960.

 

For example, this is a benchmark showing the GTX 660 vs the standard 1050. Not even the 1050 ti

https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-660-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1050-Ti/2162vs3649 I mean one is newer and still has driver support.  They might be similar, but the 1050ti is probably better overall, because it requires less power most of the time and definitely has more ram.

I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

GTX 660? No a GTX 1050 Ti equals more like a GTX 670 instead.

 

If you have a GTX 670 and is upgrading to a GTX 1050 Ti you're doing something wrong yes.

I would do the upgrade, the 1050ti is a great card and with the better driver support will actually probably be better optimized for modern games.

1050ti is more like 670 to 680 performance, depending on how well games use old hardware.

Would you ever buy a 970? They are cheap and are equivalent to a 1060. I had one until I upgraded to an SLI 970 setup. I just got my 2080, but the 970 is a good card.

Before I ever had a proper gaming graphics card, yes. I started out with an RX 470 as my first gaming card though which is equal to the GTX 970, which means I won't be buying one as my main card.

I've got both and uh... the 1050 Ti is hella faster, the 660 could probs put up a fight with my 1050, but I think it'd lose there as well.

1050ti performs like a 780 in modern games. 660 is truly outclassed by the 1050ti.

A 970 is between a 1050 Ti and 1060 3GB. The 980 is a closer equivalent.

https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-970-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1060-3GB/2577vs3646  its only about 4% slower than the 1060 3gb and for the amount of used hardware, id hazard a better value. Plus you can SLI the 970, so it would be cheaper down the road to almost double your performance in compute and some games.

I didn't even think of team red! Good point! What is the used price of one of those.

Around $100-120, but this ASUS one is only $15 more than the cheapest 1050 Ti

That site isn't even remotely accurate. And SLI is around a 50% increase, not double.

I found this great 970 build on craigslist for only $290 but my parents wouldn't let be buy it. It really had everything I was looking for but for the price of just the card.

It depends on scaling, it can be close to double within synthetics and certain games.
