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

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 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.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 2GB where we look at the bigger games played in 2022. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 132 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a weak frame rate from Grand Theft Auto VI with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Forza Horizon 5 which returns a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Star Citizen which we predict will get a weak 18 FPS.

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 Palit StormX 2GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Grand Theft Auto VI and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on Forza Horizon 5 to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 2GB PC gaming is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 2GB in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 2GB has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 2GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 2GB then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB as this is better than 617 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 74% better performance as well. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 2GB is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which is 44% more powerful and can run 309 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 1050 Palit StormX 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The latest GeForce GTX 1050 StormX by Palit is their small form factor 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. It features a non stock 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 StormX 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 StormX by Palit 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.
