The latest GeForce GTX 1050 is Nvidia's lower end graphics card, designed to compete against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the RX 460 or RX 470 and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 960.
The Pascal Architecture aims for twice as much performance as the Maxwell Architecture and Introduces support for Second Gen HBM.
It equips a GPU Codenamed GP107-400 which has 5 SM activated and thus 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1354MHz and goes up to 1455MHz with the Boost Clock.
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 3504MHz which is outstanding.
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.
The GTX 1050 will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 50+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 960.
The GeForce GTX 1050 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, so our recommendation would be to use 1600x900 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
What should I buy? gtx 750 ti or gtx 1050?
*i have 500w psu
can i upgrade to gtx 1050 or gtx 750ti
HP Compaq 6005 pro MT
6gb ddr3 ram
Amd Phenom II X3 B77 3.20ghz
Would my cpu bottleneck this gpu ?
i5 3470 3.2ghz
8GB ram DDr3
480HDD ( 320gb + 160gb)
can the psu handle this card ? is it worth upgarding ?
Q9505 @ 2.83Ghz
8GB DDR3 RAM
1TB HDD 7200RPM
Can the PSU handle GTX 1050? I can't change the PSU HP made it weird
It's only 9% better than my GTX 950, will it be worth to get 1050 over 950 if the price difference is 3000INR ($25ish)
This or RX 460? Not for me, but for a friend.
better than rx 460
I hope this card will be something between GTX 960 and GTX 970.
Honestly going to sell my GPU for this one since for games like Deus Ex Mankind Divided will look a little better than what i have now.
