Which Will Perform Better In Gaming? AMD Radeon HD 7970 or Gigabyte GeForce gtx 1050ti. ONLY EXPERTS SHOULD REPLY

Hi guys. I was just wondering for purchasing a new GPU. So which will be better for gaming? AMD Radeon HD 7970 or Gigabyte GeForce gtx 1050ti? By the way don't worry about my psu. I am just going to play games, nothing else. ONLY EXPERTS SHOULD REPLY. noobs stay away. Thanks in advance.

  1. In terms of pure performance the 7970 would be a better option by about 20% across the board. The 1050Ti will run cooler and draw less power, but if you're not worried about that then get a 7970. The 1050ti will run newer games better due to games being optimized for newer technology.

    There are much better options for the price of a 7970, including a 1060 or a R9 390. If you wait for prices to go down, it will be much more worth the money.
  2. The performance of these GPUs will be about the same. The difference will be power and efficiency. The 1050ti uses 75 watts ant the 7970 is 200 watts. Also the 1050ti has 1gb more of vram and it is also 5 years older.

    I would go with the 1050 ti, especially if the choice is between a used 7970 vs a new 1050 ti at the same price.
  3. I have deals of both of the and both are brand new. I saw some videos on youtube, they all were in favor of 1050ti. So I am gonna wait for more replies.

    reading that will hurt your eyes.

    generally radeon = mining, gtx everything else? they have similar real word performance, but i would go with the gtx if given the choice due to the bills at the end of the month being less.
  5. The chart provided by SOGGY is also in favor of gtx 1050ti. I am really confused. Please help me...

    Games and benchmarks respond differently to different GPUs. Some games, the 7970 will perform better while in other games the 1050ti will perform better. These GPUs are similar in performance, except one uses more than half as much power and is half a decade newer.

    Both are of equal footing (not considering power consumption).

    As to which GPU would perform at a higher fps, will entirely depend on the games you play (and settings), for example, consider these tests in some example games:

    F1 2016 in 1080p (Ultra Quality) SMAA, Heavy Rain
    HD 7970 = 45fps (avg) / 31fps (min) | GTX 1050 Ti = 48fps (avg) / 38fps (min)
    GTX 1050 Ti by only 3fps

    Mirror's Edge Catalyst in 1080p (Medium Quality)
    HD 7970 = 73fps (avg) / 63fps (min) | GTX 1050 Ti = 66fps (avg) / 58fps (min)
    HD 7970 by 7fps

    Overwatch in 1080p (Ultra Quality)
    HD 7970 = 100fps (avg) / 79fps (min) | GTX 1050 Ti = 113fps (avg) / 84fps (min)
    GTX 1050 Ti by 13fps

    Battlefield 1 in 1080p (Ultra Quality), DX11
    HD 7970 = 50fps (avg) / 45fps (min) | GTX 1050 Ti = 58fps (avg) / 47fps (min)
    GTX 1050 Ti by 8fps

    Gears of War 4 in 1080p (High Quality)
    HD 7970 = 61fps (avg) / 49fps (min) | GTX 1050 Ti = 72fps (avg) / 56fps (min)
    GTX 1050 Ti by 11fps

    Titanfall 2 in 1080p (Very High Quality)
    HD 7970 = 66fps (avg) / 59fps (min) | GTX 1050 Ti = 62fps (avg) / 57fps (min)
    HD 7970 by only 4fps

    Sleeping Dogs in 1080p (Extreme Quality), FXAA
    HD 7970 = 101fps (avg) / 70fps (min) | GTX 1050 Ti = 104fps (avg) / 61fps (min)
    GTX 1050 Ti by only 3fps

    Tomb Raider in 1080p (Ultimate Quality), FXAA/TressFX
    HD 7970 = 67fps (avg) / 51fps (min) | GTX 1050 Ti = 66fps (avg) / 48fps (min)
    HD7970 by only 1 fps

    My recommendation is to get the GTX 1050 Ti (as you get equal performance, more VRAM, less power consumption, less heat, less fan noise, and newer architecture).
  8. The Radeon HD 7970 also doesn't have DirectX 12 support.
  9. I am getting a 1050ti
  10. My recommendation would be the 1050ti as its a newer card, better optimized for newer games, and lower power consumption
  11. 1050Ti all the way. That extra power use of the 7970 is not worth it.
