GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB is currently Zotac's highest overclocked version of the GTX 1050, one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470.


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 1392MHz and goes up to 1506MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game, staggering when you consider the reference's boost clock speed is 1392Mhz also.


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


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 OC Edition ti to deliver around 62+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will be faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960


System Suggestions


Zotac's overclocked GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB 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.
