    For this review we are testing the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB OC EDITION that obviously comes with a factory tweak and a custom cooler and PCB design. We'll talk about the precise specs on thes...

    Very nice review as always!
    1050 Ti is highly unlikely to replace my trusty 280x, but I like to keep track on overall performance as I'll probably have to replace some really old pc's at work.

    That said, I think the Hitman overclocked graph was switched? I mean, the overclocked result is lower than the original result?

    Cheers and keep up the good work!

    Yeah ... not sure how some of the overclocked numbers are slower than the standard numbers ... either something is hitting a limit really hard or the results are switched.

    Yeah something is mixed up in that particular chart, I'll check it out and fix.

    I'm not sure how you could recommend this card over a 470, both cost the same and the 470 is miles ahead in performance.

    Agree^.....470 is about $20 more though.

    Sorry what ? Here's what I write in the conclusion:

    "It is a fun card, but is outperformed by that RX 470 "

    And then in the finals words:

    "For it to become successful whoever it needs to be under the 150 euro marker, and currently this specific card sells at €189,- in the EU and $169.99 in the USA, that is a notch too high to make sense as the competition RX 470 is merely a few tenners way and will offer more value for money, we spotted the HIS RX 470 for example at € 195,-"

    Yes that's what you said, bit what about the big Guru3D Recommend badge on the last page?

    Because despite there being a better product out there it is still a solid product that operates as advertised. That recommended badge does not mean it is better than the 470.

    The MSI 470 Gaming got top pick BTW. You are making a scene for nothing.

    Not making a scene, just asking what I think was a valid question.

    Actually you were, implying that Hilbert is bias and we as long time users here don't take kindly to that.

    FYI using newer nVidia driver should allow higher clocks on the 1050Ti.
