How well can the GeForce GTX 1050M run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 1050M graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 1050M runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 135 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A GeForce GTX 1050M card at 1080p is seeing a weak frame rate when running Borderlands 3 on Ultra - 10 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Cyberpunk 2077 which is 0 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Halo: Reach performs on this hardware, which gets a strong 80 FPS.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Borderlands 3 on the GeForce GTX 1050M to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 19FPS, M: 15FPS, H: 10FPS, U: 7FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Cyberpunk 2077 which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Halo: Reach where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were good at 61 FPS. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1050M, this is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050M in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the GeForce GTX 1050M is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050M? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Mobile. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 165% better and can meet 982 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1050M would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB which meets 587 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 65% better performance.

GeForce GTX 1050M Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


The latest GeForce GTX 1050m is Nvidia's lower end graphics card designed for laptops, although they have decided to name both the GTX 1050. They share exactly the same perormance. Designed to compete against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the RX 460 or RX 470 and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 960.


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 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


The GeForce GTX 1050 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 i7-6700HQ and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.

I guess this worth to wait as it have huge improvement than today 950m and 960m, as the price is likely the same. I hope 1050m ti also got more cheaper than today 960m or 970m, so gaming laptop market may get more attention. As 1060 laptop is much more pricey, may better make a monster desktop with that money or else.
