How well can the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. 285 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Borderlands 3 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 49 FPS, Medium: 38 FPS, High: 26 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. We proceeded to look at Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip to see how that compared and saw that it returned a playable 28 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Borderlands 3 where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 37 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS. We added Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip to our tests and saw it was weak with a 21 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Cyberpunk 2077 leading us to predict 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB as this is better than 900 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 104% better performance as well. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 52% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 692 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


The GeForce GTX 1050 G1 Gaming 2GB is Gigabyte's most overclocked version of 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. This card has all Gigabyte has to offer at this point, a heavily overclocked core speed, RGB lighting, Windforce 2X cooling system, backplate and 2 extra HDMI pots to boot.


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 in OC mode.


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, this card require a 6-pin power connector in order to support all of it's added extras.


Performance


The GTX 1050 G1 Gaming 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 55+ 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 G1 Gaming 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.
