Pascal GP107 Based Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 Leaked Out, Pricing Starts at $119
Some fresh details about the Nvidia GTX 1050 have just leaked on the web. The details comes via HWBattle, which claims that the new entry-level card based the latest Pascal architecture might not be available in one variant but two different cards, instead.
According to the leaked info, both GTX 1050 versions will use the latest GP107 GPU however, the Ti version features the full-fat graphics core while the other has a cut-down variant. The cards will succeed the GeForce GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti that were made available in early 2014. These were both first generation Maxwell graphics cards and used the aging GM107 graphics core.
Now, Nvidia is ready to update this market segment with the brand-new Pascal-based products that are built using the 16nm FinFET process, offering a significant Perf/Watt improvement over Maxwell.
The cards will benefit Pascal features such as SMT and Ansel bringing these solution to a wider audience without having the need to spend hundreds of dollars on high-end cards.
As for the specs, the GeForce GTX 1050 sports a fully enabled GP107 die featuring 768 CUDA cores, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The card has 4GB of GDDR5 RAM with clock speeds of 1318 MHz base and 1380 MHz boost. The memory is clocked at 7 GHz over 128-bit bus giving a total bandwidth of 112 GB/s.
On the other hand, the Nvidia GTX 1050 is said to feature a cut-down GP107 core, 2GB base memory along with lower clock speeds. This will translate to lower power consumption, with an expected TDP of less than 75W.
The GTX 1050 Ti is expected to cost around $149 with availability expected in mid-October. The cut-down GTX 1050 will be priced at $119 and could launch in late October.
