10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 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.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2022. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 256 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Star Citizen and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 88 FPS, Medium: 70 FPS, High: 47 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. We proceeded to look at Back 4 Blood to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 37 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB by researching Star Citizen leading us to predict a playable performance. Its FPS predictions for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 67FPS, M: 53FPS, H: 36FPS, U: 26FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Back 4 Blood and that was playable. This graphics card delivered 28 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was FIFA 22 which gets reasonable results with a 47FPS on Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB running at 1440p is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB 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 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 42% better and can run 616 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 106% better and can run 961 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

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.
