Sapphire Radeon RX 580 Nitro+ 8GB: Affordable and fast RX 580

The Sapphire Nitro+ is an affordable RX 580 and, while it is not the quietest, can overclock very well considering the 'regular' XTX-chip and has good performance.

Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini 11GB: Mini-ITX performance breakthrough

Zotac offers a completely new performance level at this size with the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini. If your case does not have room for monstercards of 27 cm or even longer, a GeForce GTX 1070 was the fastest card you could install up until this point. This can be the difference between fine and unplayable in a lot of games and is a big achievement.

Gigabyte Aorus GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11GB: The best GeForce GTX 1080 Ti

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11GB
May 16, 2017

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11GB: Affordable but excellent GTX 1080 Ti

If you want to spend a bit less, MSI has the best alternative. The GTX 1080 Ti Gaminx X is significantly cheaper than the Gigabyte card while not being loud or slow, however it's a bit less powerful in every area. The cooling efficiency is excellent and if you tune the fan profile a little you can make the card just as silent, if not even more silent than the Gigabyte Aorus.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X 4GB
August 6, 2017

MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X 4GB: Whisper-quiet GTX 1050 Ti with excellent performance

Both the GTX 1050 Gaming X and the GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X receive an Excellent Choice Award - they perform excellently and they operate silently. The dual-fan cooler might be a bit overkill, however this allows MSI to reduce the noise level to a minimum.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 OC LP 2GB: Ideal card for a HTPC

The Gigabyte GTX 1050 OC LP is affordable and ideal for a HTPC: it's low-profile, not longer than a motherboard in fact, and what's more, it's also fairly quiet. A second HDMI port makes things even better.

February 5, 2017

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 G1 Gaming 2GB: Fine performance at Full HD

Gigabyte's GTX 1050 performs just a bit better than the other cards we have tested so far. It also gets a bit warmer while being marginally louder, however all in all it's an acceptable trade-off. Get this one, if you're looking for the best GTX 1050 in terms of performance.
