GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon RX 640 comparison

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU is faster than the Radeon RX 640 in gaming.

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. In addition, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti also has a slightly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.

As stated by the manufacturer, they both have the same amount of memory at 4 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 RX 640 has a significantly lower TDP at 50 W when compared to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti at 75 W. This is not a measure of performance, but rather the amount of heat generated by the chip when running at its highest speed.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is faster than the Radeon RX 640.
