GTX 680 or GTX 1050TI??

 Share

Alright, I have finally decided to upgrade my rig. It currently rocks an i7 2600k not overclocked along with a Radeon 7770. I found 2 deals on my local marketplace fr a GALAX GeForce GTX 1050ti EXOC for $75 and a EVGA GeForce GTX 680 2048MB DDR5 for $80. I am pretty confused in choosing the right GPU. GTX 680 was a flagship card back then and 1050ti is just an entry level card.

Also, I have one more doubt. Is GALAX a good company? I have never heard of that company. I know that EVGA makes best graphics cards.

The games that I play are Minecraft, CSGO, Fortnite and some GTA 5.

1050 Ti, hands down.  The 2gb 680's have some problems in comparison, and the 5%-10% extra performance (in some circumstances its actually slower) is not worth the problems.

 

If the 680 was a 4gb version, maybe.

 

To summarize, 680 gives similar performance to the 1050 Ti but has half the ram.

Take the 1050ti. It's way newer, will be supported longer, runs cooler, sips power compared to a 680, has 2 more gigs of  vram. Performance wise they should be similar, 1050ti might be a little bit slower.

I'd grab the GTX 1050 Ti because cheaper, newer, power efficient, a huge upgrade from the HD 7770... I'm personally not in favour of digging these old power houses that nowadays are simply too inefficient with outdated drivers.

 

The GTX 680 can't even use ShadowPlay.

1050Ti, definitely.

But this website says that gtx 680 is faster.

Also gtx 680 has more cuda cores.

Are you comparing reference models or custom?  I bought a 4GB 770 in 2014 and that was freaking luxurious.  You run out of video memory that bit of extra speed you're getting with the extra power draw isn't going to matter overly much I'm thinking.

User Benchmark only tests basic rendering.  In actual games, they are MUCH closer than that because 680 does not get any new performance tuning in drivers.

Does GALAX make good gpus?

Can you check this card out fr me. It is the exact same card that is on the marketplace.

GALAX is not the best GPU brand but they aren't fake, if that's what you're wondering.

Now, if you were to chose the 680, you would need much more wattage from your PSU than if you'd use a 1050ti. As everyone else before me stated, the 1050ti is the right choice here for many reasons. Driver support (and thus being a newer card) is numero uno here

Galax = Galaxy.  They have been making video cards since... ~2000, and were at one point THE company to buy performance GPUs from.  They only serve the European market nowdays though.

I'd like to make a correction to what I said earlier.  I bought 4 GB 770 in 2014, not 2010.  Correcting the post above, but adding an extra post since I've already been quoted.

I would recommend an RX 570 or RX 470 over a 1050Ti any day of the week.

Judge a product on its own merits AND the company that made it.

Also gtx 680 has more cuda cores.

Userbenchmark is generic, and yes the GTX 680 is marginally faster while consuming twice as much power and heating up twice as much sounding like a jet under load while having outdated drivers and no support for GeForce Experience features like mentioned ShadowPlay.

 

Cuda Cores are different from one generation to another, the process node used on the GTX 1050 Ti is at 14nm already while the GTX 680 is 32nm or something I don't even recall out of my head right now.

28nm for 680 AFAIK.

 

Also, GTX 1050 Ti clockspeeds are something like 600mhz higher, so even if cuda cores were exactly the same it would get similar performance.

The GTX 1050 Ti is 4% faster (5,900 PassMark GPU score) than the GTX 680 (5,680 PassMark GPU score), as well as it being six years newer.

 

Also, the GTX 680 has a TDP of 195 W, compared to 75 W for the GTX 1050 Ti.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, 32 GB DDR4-3600, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080. More.
