How well can the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

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

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 198 games in the list.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB is predicted to run Forza Horizon 5 with playable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 26 frames per second. Comparing this to Battlefield 2042 which is predicted to get weak results, where it averages 0 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is FIFA 22, which is predicted to run at 53 frames per second.

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 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Forza Horizon 5 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 51 FPS, Medium: 40 FPS, High: 27 FPS and Ultra: 19 FPS. We then checked the performance on Battlefield 2042 to predict if that will run well. It is predicted to be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB is not ideal and its more advisable to run modern games at 1080p resolution. But if you really want to play games at 1440p then you will likely have to make some graphical adjustments to improve game FPS stability.

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? We think this GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB? 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 63% better and can run 631 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 2GB then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 as this is better than 312 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 34% better performance as well.

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.
