How well can the GeForce GTX 1050M run games
22 May 2020 - 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.

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 upgrade time for the GeForce GTX 1050M, assuming you are a modern day gamer.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050M? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile which is 110% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 841 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500M 8GB, as it can run 445 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 65% increased graphics 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.
