GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Game Requirement Analysis
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti G1 Gaming by Gigabyte is currently their highest clocked 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 everything gigabyte has to offer, RGB lights, their highest overclock, a back plate, the Windforce 2X cooling system and 2 extra HDMI ports.
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 1392MHz and goes up to 1506MHz 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, it require a 6-pin power connector, the price (apart from the actual price) of all it's added features.
The GTX 1050 Ti 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 60+ 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 G1 Gaming by Gigabyte 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.
