21 GeForce GTX 1050's and GTX 1050 Ti's tested: gaming with little ones

Largest comparison test of smaller cards


Power consumption

In idle we don't see many large differences, disregarding the low-profile cards from Gigabyte and KFA2. Apparently the choices that have been made due to the small PCB sacrifice efficiency. Under load the graph looks as you'd expect. Higher clocked 1050's regularly manage to consume more than 1050 Ti's. This is because higher clock speeds are less efficient compared to simply enabling more cores.
