GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Asus Pheonix 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Phoenix 4GB by Asus is their compact version of the GTX 1050 Ti, not quite as small as other small form factors but smaller than most other variants. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. It features a minimised design and and a double bearing fan system.

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 1290MHz and goes up to 1392MHz 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.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

The GTX 1050 Ti Phoenix 4GB 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
Asus's 4 GB GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Phoenix 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.
