there is 0 difference in performance if cooling is the same, a GTX 1050 is a GTX 1050 if NOT factory overclocked(not an SE or Ti or whatever other version) you know, like an apple is an apple but an orange is not an apple..the dual fan coolers usually cool better and are less noisy, so they "in theory" will maintain their "boost" clock higher, if you take that boost clock away, they are still a GTX 1050(an apple is an apple) the single fan ones are nice in that they usually blow the heat out of the computer case instead of into i(hence so called blower style though not all single fan gpu are like this) so if you have a poor airflow computer case, the "blower style" which pushes its own heat out, is usually the better choice, but if you have good airflow, 9/10 you are best to go with the dual or triple fan cooled cards as they tend to be much better cooled, so therefore, "in theory" will cool better, be less noisy, and "live" longer, hot electronics die faster unless they are built to handle a very high heat, Nvidia is not known for overbuilding their components for a very high heat tolerance, heck often enough they underbuild/underspec but still overprice considering..anyways hope that answers the question.
people are constantly everywhere misquoting wattage figures even journalists and such...TDP is NOT WATTAGE...TDP is thermal design power or thermal dissipation power, this means simply how much heat the cooler attached must be able to handle to effectively displace heat..Nvidia has often enough and many times over undershot this number to appear much better then reality, that being said they did quite well with Pascal in that although they are pushing pretty much the same heat, they are much better power usage (not counting throttling cause of underspec cooling) When it comes to actual power required, AMD is a little more lenient in their ratings when at a "reference" card and gives somewhat higher +/- tolerance for power actually required and so forth (RX 48x and 47x were a little wonky from some board partners which is a shame) All such being said, RX 470 is the better performer simple as that, take more power so therefore will push more heat BUT you get better performance, whereas the 1060 and 480 trade performance back and forth with again the 1060 using a bit less power but average the RX 480 more oomph in AMD case especially when considering DX12 and Vulkan, they have more "under the hood" to be able to do more advanced stuff not gimmicky stuff (and not tricking/hacking the software through emulation) to make them "appear" faster then they are, nor running crazy high clock speeds to make up for the fact they chop so much away like Ngreeedia does (likely meaning there will be more failures(then normally expected, they have billions $ to hide this of course) you can only push electrons so fast before degradation sets in, no matter how fancy they claim their power circuitry is, if anything, it likely will mean overtime they will actually not be able to keep anywhere close to that clock speed as they have been damaged over time) TDP is NOT power required, it is cooling needed, power required is a general thing 75w from the pci-e slot 75w from a 6pin connector 150w from an 8 pin though there is allowed some variance by ~15w and still stay in the "acceptable" range. So to put it lightly, if a card requires 6 pin with the motherboard pci-e slot that means the card is ABLE TO use up to 150w +/- and be within "spec" if there is NO 6 pin or 8 pin extra for power it is only able to get 75w-90w from the socket itself, go out of spec for too long, or have a bad design, it will cause things to break, melt, die, short out other things. Ngreedia tried to make the biggest stink about RX 4xx being out of spec, and yet they themselves have had graphics cards and even motherboards up and die again and again for this very reason...they are green cause they are "the way we play games with you" ^.^
RX470 performance wise and GTX1050Ti power consumption wise. GTX1050Ti has enough power for fluid gameplay with only 75 Watts usage. While RX470 has more gaming power but needs 120 Watts power.
Do U Use 1050ti Single (Fan) Or Dual (Fan) Cause The Performance is different.
The 470 cost 10 more on newegg at cheapest. Wow Nvidia knows how to over price that's for sure. Did you see the prebuilts up there the 1050 ti pc cost 300 more LOL TO THE MAX extreme. Nvidia the green stands for money or weed take your pick.
RX 470
so who the winner??
