Here is an interesting technology comparison articles. The nVidia 580 (released in 2010) and nVidia 680 (released in 2012) were considered the top of the line video cards when originally released. the nVidia 1050 and 1050Ti, both released in late 2016, are considered low-end cards. Yet, because of technological improvements (improved performance, lower power consumption, more graphics memory), the performance of the 1050Ti is just a few frames better than the the 680. Why even have the comparison? Because of the CyberCurrency craze, the price of even the low-end cards have spiked…. if you can get them. The 1050Ti is supposed to be a $140-$150 card, but is now selling for around $250-$300 which is even higher than nVidia’s MSRP…. if you can find one in stock. Thus, you have to scrounge around the used card market. Revisiting the GeForce GTX 680: GTX 1050 Ti-Class Performance for Less? 8 Years Later: Does the GeForce GTX 580 Still Have Game in 2018?
