NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 And GTX 1050 Ti Review: Low Power, Low Price Pascal

Hitman And Ashes Of The Singularity DX12 Performance

The latest Hitman title for 2016 once again follows Agent 47, a genetically-enhanced, cold-blooded assassin. He finds himself at the center of new missions scatted about Central Europe, but not before some drama in an ICA training facility some 20 years before the events of 2012's Hitman: Absolution. We tested the game using its DirectX 12 code path, at multiple resolutions, with all in-game options set to their maximum / Ultra values, with FXAA and 16x anisotropic filtering enabled...

The 2GB GeForce GTX 1050 wasn't able to run this test at 2560x1440 (with the settings we used), hence it is only represented in the 1080p graph. Hitman beat on the cards pretty hard, but the same trend we've seen to this point continued, with the 1050 Ti cards outpacing the RX 460, and the GTX 1050 no too far behind.
Ashes Of The Singularity
DirectX 12 Performance
Oxide's Ashes Of The Singularity offers planetary warfare on a massive scale. The game also includes one of the first DirectX 12 benchmarks. And it's not synthetic like 3DMark’s API overhead feature test, but rather a real-world representation of in-game performance using a variety of workloads. We ran the Ashes benchmark at multiple resolutions with its "crazy" graphics preset and 4X anti-aliasing enabled to put as heavy a workload as possible on the GPUs.

Ashes of The Singularity shows a small advantage for GeForce GTX 1050 Ti cards over the Radeon RX 460 at both resolutions. The GTX 1050 trailed by a significant margin here though, due to its smaller frame buffer.
