Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Performance Review

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 1050 is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

GeForce GTX 1050 is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 1050 get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 141 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 1050 can run Far Cry 6 at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Battlefield 2042 is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 1050 ran Far Cry 6 to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game researched was Battlefield 2042 with predictions of L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Star Citizen, wih estimates revealing L: 36FPS, M: 29FPS, H: 19FPS, U: 14FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1050, this is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the GeForce GTX 1050 is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1050 would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 625 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 74% better performance. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300. This PC hardware upgrade performs 44% better and can run 311 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.
