GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon R7 450 benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti beats the Radeon R7 450 in gaming performance.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has a slightly higher core clock speed. The core clock speed (or base speed) is the frequency at which the GPU core runs. This metric makes sense when comparing GPUs of a similar architecture or generation.

As stated by the manufacturer, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has significantly more memory with 4 GiB of memory compared to 2 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.

In addition, the Radeon R7 450 has a slightly lower TDP at 65 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti at 75 W. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is faster than the Radeon R7 450.
