The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB graphics card, when running 2021 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. 256 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB graphics card is predicted to return a weak performance on Battlefield 2042 at 1080p of 0 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Forza Horizon 5 which we predict will get weak frame rates of 7 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Days Gone, which was getting 28 FPS under tests.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Battlefield 2042 to predict how the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at Forza Horizon 5 which we predict will be weak with a 5 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Days Gone that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 21.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI Gaming X 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X 4GB is MSi's higher end take of one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. Part of the Gaming X series, this card features a boosted core clock, Twin Frozr VI cooling system and the usual RGB LED's on the card.

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 6 SM activated and 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1379MHz and goes up to 1493MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 3504MHz.

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 ti Gaming X will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect the Nvidia GTX 1050 ti Gaming X to deliver around 60+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
The GTX 1050 ti will be ever so slightly faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X by MSI is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a modern CPU like the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
