NVIDIA today announces the GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti as its latest addition to its Pascal GTX 10 series graphics card, delivering a big leap in gaming performance and power efficiency over its predecessors, the Maxwell architecture based entry level GPU for the budget gamers.
Both the GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti will be hitting the shelves very soon at a surprisingly competitive price point. The GTX 1050 Ti will be the first to be available starting from Oct 25th onwards at the price of $139, followed by the GTX 1050 in a couple of weeks after the GTX 1050 Ti, at the price of $109.
The GTX 1050 Ti features the Pascal GP107-400 that comes with a total of 768 CUDA Cores count, 48 Texture Units, GPU clock of 1290 MHz and boost clock of 1392 MHz, a total of 4GB GDDR5 memory on 128-bit bus and with the memory which is clocked at 7GHz.
GTX 1050 on the other hand, comes with the Pascal GP107-300 GPU, total CUDA core count of 640, 40 Texture Units, higher GPU clock of 1354 MHz and boost clock of 1455 MHz, a total of 2GB GDDR5 memory on 128-bit bus and with the same 7GHz memory speed just like the GTX 1050 Ti.
Both the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti will feature a mere TDP of 75W and minimum requirement of 300W on the power supply.
According to the benchmark numbers presented on the slides, the GTX 1050 alone is able to pull off quite an amount of performance on some of the popular MOBA and eSports titles with an average of 60 FPS and above – GTA 5 and Gears of War 4 on medium settings, Overwatch on high settings, Dota 2 and World of Warcraft at highest settings.
According to NVIDIA, there will be no Founders Edition available for both the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti, but there will be a wide variety of models with different design from the AIB partners, ranged from single to dual fan cooler, as well as models that comes with or without additional 6-pin PCIe power connector.
