14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X 2GB might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X 2GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2019. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 270 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Red Dead Redemption 2 getting 19 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X 2GB, Borderlands 3 getting 19 FPS and Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order getting 0 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X 2GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Red Dead Redemption 2 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 37 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. We then checked the performance on Borderlands 3 to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 14 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X 2GB is the wrong choice for PC gaming.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X 2GB in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X 2GB? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 104% better and can meet 895 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 684 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 52% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


The GeForce GTX 1050 Gaming X 2GB is currently MSI's best version of the latest GeForce GTX 1050 2gb, Nvidia's lower end graphics card designed to compete against the RX 460 or RX 470. This card feature an overclocked boost as well as a Twin Frozr VI cooling system and LEDs.


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 1442MHz and goes up to 1556MHz 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


This card 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 Gaming X to deliver around 56+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.


This card will be ever so slightly faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960


System Suggestions


The GeForce GTX 1050 MSI Gaming X Edition is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080 so we recommend 1600x900 so you can get the best out of your graphics settings. We recommend a High-End Processor such as the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
