How well can the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB is at running the more popular games of 2022. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 231 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Days Gone getting 24 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB, Dying Light 2 predicted to get 0 FPS and Star Citizen predicted to get 29 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB by playing Days Gone which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 47FPS, M: 37FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS. Another popular game we researched with this card was Dying Light 2 and that was weak. This graphics card is predicted to deliver 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Star Citizen which is predicted to get weak results with a 22FPS on Ultra 1440p. 1440p gaming on the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB is going to struggle at this higher gaming resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 52% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 616 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which is 26% more powerful and can run 309 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY edition is a small form factor version of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. It features a non stock fan.

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 6 SM activated and 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1290MHz and goes up to 1392MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 3504MHz.

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 PNY's GTX 1050 Ti 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 55+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will be faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960

System Suggestions
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.
