How well can the GeForce GTX 2050 run games
Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 2050 is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 2050 is at running the more popular games of 2022. 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 229 games in the list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 2050 can run Resident Evil 8 at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 4 FPS, Medium: 3 FPS, High: 2 FPS and Ultra: 2 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Battlefield 2042 returns a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 2050 performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Resident Evil 8 and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 3 FPS, Medium: 2 FPS, High: 2 FPS and Ultra: 1 FPS. We then checked the performance on Battlefield 2042 to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 2050 is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 2050 graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 2050 in your PC? This GeForce GTX 2050 card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 2050? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 56% better and can meet 725 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300. This PC hardware upgrade performs 25% better and can run 305 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

GeForce GTX 2050 Game Requirement Analysis

The GeForce GTX 2050 is an expect Nvidia low-end graphics card due to launch in 2019. The GTX 2050 is designed to compete against AMD's more affordable gaming cards such as the RX 550 and the RX 560, and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 1050.

The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Turing Architecture.

It equips a GPU Codenamed Turing T107-400 which has [TBA] SM activated and thus [TBA] Shader Processing Units, [TBA] TMUs and [TBA] ROPs. The central unit runs at [TBA]MHz and goes up to [TBA]MHz with the Boost Clock.

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 2050 will enable low to mid-level graphics performance on modern AAA 2018 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 1050 Ti.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 2050 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 i5-7500 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
