GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY XLR8 Gaming Overclocked Edition 4GB Game Requirement Analysis
Adding to the list of short catchy graphics card names we have the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti XLR8 Gaming Overclocked Edition by PNY. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. This card features an overclocked core speed, non stock fans and two extra DVI 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 1366MHz and goes up to 1480MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game.
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 relies on a 6-pin power connector to function.
The GTX 1050 Ti XLR8 Gaming Overclocked Edition 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
This card 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.
