Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Review – Budget-Friendly Wonder

If you think that the GTX 1080 is too pricey, and you’re current spending allowance is still having a difficult time acquiring the GTX 1070 or even the GTX 1060, then the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti might be a better deal for you. This is the spiritual successor to the already famous GTX 750 Ti that was released back in 2014. It has a small form factor, incredibly low power consumption, and it lets your computer play the latest games at Full HD resolution.

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Fits Many Budgets Perfectly

It should be noted that the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti makes use of the brand’s Pascal GPU design, which is a formula that is already present within the firm’s 2016 lineup. To recall, the Pascal GPU design can already be seen in the GTX 1080, 1070, and the 1060. With this budget-friendly wonder, this is the first card created by Nvidia for this year that does not support virtual reality gameplay. So if you really want something that will let you experience the VR realm, then the GTX 1060 still has the minimum specs for that purpose.

For the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, you get 768 CUDA cores that have a base clock speed of 1,290MHz, as well as a maximum clock speed of 1,392MHz when boosted. In the GPU itself, there is a full 4GB of GDDR5 memory running at 7,000MHz and a 128-bit memory bus. This particular graphics card utilizes the same GP107 chip that can be found in the base level GTX 1050. However, the two chips are configured differently.

The GTX 1050 Ti has a maximum thermal design power (TDP) of 75W, and there’s no room for extra, unfortunately. However, there is not much cause for a lot of sadness and disappointment because there is no PCI-E power connector found on the card that will otherwise draw power from the PSU. In other words, all the power the graphics card requires can already be drawn right from the PCI-E slot, and with its incredibly low power output, you won’t worry about overworking your system with it.

Even though the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti allows you to play just about every game in Full HD, there are some games that need to be dropped down to medium quality for the videogame to run properly. Otherwise, if you bump it to high performance, the graphics card won’t be able to handle the intense graphics.
