GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gigabyte Windforce OC 4GB Game Requirement Analysis
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Windforce OC 4GB by Gigabyte is a higher end version of Nvidia's lower end graphics card the GTX 1050 Ti. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. It features an overclocked core speed, a back plate, a Windforce 2X cooling system and 2 extra HDMI slots.
The Pascal Architecture aims for twice as much performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.
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 1354MHz and goes up to 1468MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in OC mode.
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 3504MHz.
With a rated board TDP of 75W, this card requires a 6-pin power connector to power its added features
The GTX 1050 Ti Windforce OC 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 58+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will be faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Windofrce OC 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.
