I will keep this post short, as I don't want to extend it too much. Basically, I am at a Discord server and there is a guy who has a GTX 1050 Ti and basically, he claims impossible performance figures for such GPU. There is also another guy who is my friend, with literally the same rig and he pretty much gets GTX 1050 Ti expected results. This individual basically claims he is getting GTX 1060 performance levels or even more and not only that, all of this with an i5 4460. He has 16 gigs of RAM, but so do I and same for my friend and not even me with a GTX 1060 can't even come close to his bold claim of The Witcher 3 at ULTRA non-HW, 45-60 fps. He also claims he is running cp-2077 at 40 to 50 fps on medium-HIGH. I could not break 40 fps on medium-LOW on a 1060. Same for the videos I watch on YT. Apparently he can also run Hitman 2 at ULTRA averaging 60 fps, all of this said by him, screenshots can be provided if needed. Videos are, of course, a very different reality when you search for the 1050 Ti: And these are the fps my bud gets, within margin of error, while this guy and his miracle 1050 Ti claims 60's on Ultra. He even posted his user.ini file for TW3 and it is indeed pretty much beefed up to Ultra. I have an i7 4770, an EVGA 1060 and 16 GB of RAM, my computer is far stronger than his and while I can get locked 60 fps at TW3 at medium/high, I can't even touch the ultra settings or my fps will tank to the 40's and 30's. Even testing different drivers or other Windows versions, the results are not too different. He has "proved" he has a 1050 Ti by showing the box and some screenshots, but he made a bunch of excuses when my friend asked him to show the GPU inside his case, some stuff about cable management, etc. So what gives? Is anyone in here getting such results from a 1050 Ti? Or could be has has a wrongly branded 1050 Ti? Any ideas? If anyone is interested, I can get any of you in contact with him as he is the Discord server I moderate, but everything is so fishy that I would not be surprised he is a head-on full liar. This caught my attention and has been bugging me for a while because he has a low-tier computer that somehow is beating better computer than his and performing better than similar rigs to his. Honestly, me and my bud are very puzzled by this and he even wants to know how such performance could be possible with a 1050 Ti; some bios mod or such?
