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

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA 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.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB. 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 2021. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 146 games in todays list.

The GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB graphics card is predicted to return a weak performance on Dying Light 2 at 1080p of 0 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Back 4 Blood which we predict will get weak frame rates of 23 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Forza Horizon 5, which is predicted to get 20 FPS under tests.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Dying Light 2 on the GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Back 4 Blood which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 17 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Forza Horizon 5 where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 15 FPS. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB is not a viable PC gaming choice.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB in your PC? There is around 6-12 months of top end gaming left in this card, at which point its graphics card replacement time, assuming the GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB is part of your PC gaming machine.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 633 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 74% better performance. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 which meets 312 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 44% better performance.

GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA Gaming 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce GTX 1050 Gaming by EVGA is their small form factor version of the reference GTX 1050, designed to compete against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the RX 460 or RX 470 and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 960. It features an ACX 2.0 cooler.

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 1354MHz and goes up to 1455MHz with the Boost Clock.

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, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GTX 1050 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 50+ 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 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.
