How well can the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB run games
5 Jun 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game 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 2020. 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. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 109 games in the list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord getting 31 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB, Valorant getting 352 FPS and Cyberpunk 2077 predicted to get 1 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB ran Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 61 FPS, Medium: 48 FPS, High: 33 FPS and Ultra: 23 FPS. Another game tested was Valorant, L: 709FPS, M: 558FPS, H: 376FPS, U: 268FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Cyberpunk 2077, wih estimates revealing L: 1FPS, M: 1FPS, H: 1FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

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? We think this GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB which meets 866 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 94% better performance. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti PNY 4GB is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 52% more powerful and can run 703 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.
