GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon RX 6500 XT specs and performance
In our benchmarks, the Radeon RX 6500 XT beats the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti in gaming performance.
In our comparison, the Radeon RX 6500 XT has a significantly 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 Radeon RX 6500 XT also has a significantly higher boost clock speed: the maximum frequency the chip can reach if power delivery and thermals allow.
Furthermore, the spec sheet for both these GPUs show that 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 GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has a slightly lower TDP at 75 W when compared to the Radeon RX 6500 XT at 107 W. Heat output doesn't match power consumption directly but, it's a good estimate.
In terms of raw gaming performance in our GPU benchmark, the Radeon RX 6500 XT is better than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
