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

Based on current gaming requirements the GeForce GTX 1050 PNY 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.

Lets look at the GeForce GTX 1050 PNY 2GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2022. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 132.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX 1050 PNY 2GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Resident Evil 8 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We proceeded to look at Battlefield 2042 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 1050 PNY 2GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Resident Evil 8 where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We added Battlefield 2042 to our tests and saw it was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Dying Light 2 leading us to predict 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 1050 PNY 2GB is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

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

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 PNY 2GB? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1050 PNY 2GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 616 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 74% better performance. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, as it can run 309 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 44% increased graphics performance.

GeForce GTX 1050 PNY 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The latest GeForce GTX 1050 PNY Edition is one 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 PNY 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 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
This card 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.
