The Nvidia GTX 970 is a game changer in terms of performance per watt and value for money. The GTX 970 is based on Nvidia's ground-breaking Maxwell architecture which delivers considerable clock for clock performance gains over Kepler, its predecessor. Comparing the GTX 970 and 780 Ti shows that the two cards offer comparable performance yet the new GTX 970 costs nearly half as much! Unsurprisingly Nvidia are discontinuing the 780 Ti as it's now largely redundant. These price to performance gains typically occur once or twice a decade and although the new Maxwell architecture will improve down the line with the release of the Ti/Titan versions, at the moment the 970 offers the best value for money on the market by miles. Since this summary was originally written AMD have slashed prices and older Nvidia models (780/780 Ti/770) have also been hugely discounted.

The GTX 1050 Ti 4GB is Nvidia’s latest Pascal based GPU. The 1050 Ti has a TDP of 75 Watts and is based on a new 14nm GP107 processing core which has approximately 66% of the key resources (CUDA cores, texture units, memory bandwidth and transistor count etc.) found on the 3GB GTX 1060. Comparing userbenchmarks for the 1050 Ti and 3GB 1060 shows that the 1050 Ti is falling a little short of our expectations but we only have one benchmark for the 1050 Ti so the average score will probably improve as we gather more samples. The list price for the 1050 Ti is $139 which is between AMDs $185 RX 470 and $100 RX 460. Comparing performance between the RX 470 vs GTX 1050 Ti and RX 460 vs GTX 1050 Ti shows that the 1050 Ti sits roughly in the middle for both price and performance. [Oct '16 GPUPro]
