MSI GTX 770 2gb vs ASUS 1050ti 4gb

Postby tango4262 on Fri May 19, 2017 11:55 am

I'm considering picking up a used 1050ti to replace my 770, I just need to know will I lose performance on the 1050ti due to the large reduction in bandwith and texture mapping? I mostly play TS2017 and TSX.

It seems to me that from looking, a 1050ti would be a considerable downgrade on the 770. I would consider either a 1060 or a 1070 as an upgrade, or maybe a 970 also.

For direct comparison look here : http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-770-vs-GeForce-GTX-1050-Ti

Thanks for the confirmation! :)

I'll pass on it then.

I'm quite happy with the 770 for now but when the time comes I will take your advice and probably go for either a 970 or 1070.


Funnily enough I use that site a lot already including when upgrading from 745 to the 770, I've also used its sister site CPU boss throughout my build, fantastic sites.


Thank you for your advice! :)

Don't forget that the 9 series and above GPUs make more efficient use of bandwidth, just looking at the numbers no longer gives a true picture.
Personally though, I'd have stayed with the 770 too, 70 beating 50 by a fair margin across the board despite the bandwidth comparison not being as critical as it once was.

Thanks, I decided in the end to stick with the 770, I realised I like it enough to not need to go better. My only fear is how long it will last. Hopefully a while as I'm not OC it.

Certainly for TS an x60/70 GPU is really all you need---if you have other games that can take advantage of something like a 1080 then you'd consider that.
I ran a 760 for a good while, and in all honesty have seen no 'real world' improvement in graphics quality by moving *up* to a 970---other than being able to utilise 3x3 SSAA but a fair proportion of that will be because I've now 4GB of vRAM as opposed to 2.

The non-scientific and mostly inconclusive *testing* we've done suggests that for TS opting for an x60/70 card and using the saving from a higher card to (help)procure a G-Sync monitor to pair with it is a more cost effective way of achieving the best possible display---possibly more expensive, but the quality has seemed to be better, or at least on par, to that of a higher spec'd card and a standard monitor.
All very confusing, and as I've intimated very much conjecture, but it does reinforce the point that the raw data from benchmarks has to be viewed as something helpful (?) rather than something conclusive.

Morning Gary, I decided to keep my BMW analogy out this time LOL. It's also worth looking at what CPU you have as a better GPU can further expose weaknesses there or with your HDD.

Ermmm, what is TSX? If you mean TSW (TrainSimWorld) then I would personally suggest you update your card, I had a GTX770 and got rid of it. If you are worried about the cost of new graphics cards, you aren't alone, we all have to watch our pennies, I obtained a GTX1060 6GB for approx. £135, you could also get a 970 or 980, you need to do some internet research for the best prices, the longer you wait the more the price comes down, you could also look for any used ones on the market, but, in the long term a 770 won't give you the performance you require for today's resource hungry games, especially, if you want TSW with stable frame rates, the 770 is 4 years old, now, time for an update, a 4GB/6GB GPU is recommended.

Ah yes TSW is what I meant :oops: not sure where I got TSX from, isn't that what used to be the full beans version of TS? (now standard) You used to be able to toggle it in the settings........

I'm actually quite surprised how well the GPU is performing in TSW, I'm getting between 30-50 fps on ultra on maximum resolution at 100% screen percentage.

No, I don't know where TSX comes from, either, don't worry about it.
TSW is absolutely fine at present, however, don't forget that any future German/European and British routes are more than likely to be modern-ish and will no doubt have electric catenary and lots more trackage, by default, than this American route offering, and the more assets you add to your hard drive with each route content, you'll need a good card to cope with it all, in the future.

Indeed, that is true, when you put it like that I think I will need some more horses in the stable!
