GeForce GTX 1050 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


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.


Architecture


The Pascal Architecture aims for twice as much performance as the Maxwell Architecture and Introduces support for Second Gen HBM.


GPU


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.


Memory


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.


Power Consumption


With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.


Performance


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.


System Suggestions


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.

Considering your monitor resolution, it will be an excellent value for your system, though I would recommend a stronger processor if u intend to go for graphic cards more powerful than this one.

I don't believe it will be worth upgrading. Sure you'd notice some better performance, but it would be better to stick with 1050 until a better upgrade comes out.

Your CPU is only 2% than mine, I tried many games there is no bottleneck with my i5, I think it should be fine :)

I think it will be good, except on CPU centered games.

I wouldn't say that it would. I have an i3 4170 which is 13% better. I have this gpu as well, no bottleneck.

No it's not worth it, it's like 10% better than your current GPU, I'd rather save for a GTX 1060 or above, or wait for next gen, your current one is good, runs almost all games at playable frames.

GTX 1050 Ti, it won't bottleneck so much.
