Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 Release Date Pricing And Availability
Next in line in the 10 series GPU lineup are the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050. We have heard all kinds of rumors regarding these cards and while some people doubted that these even existed, here we are closer to the release than ever before. The Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 are expected to launch on the 25th of October. Both the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 will hit the market on the same day, so look out for these GPUs.
The Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti has the following specifications:
- Full-fat GP107 GPU
- 768 CUDA cores
- 4GB GDDR5 memory
- 75W TDP
The non-Ti model has the following specifications:
- 640 CUDA cores
- 2GB GDDR5 memory
- 75W TDP
Following are the partners that will be releasing their versions of the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti and the Nvidia GTX 1050:
The Nvidia GTX 1050 will cost $109 while the GTX 1050 Ti will cost you $139. This is great value for money as the GTX 950 is still $20 more expensive and these GPUs should match the performance of that previous generation GPU.
We have seen a couple of leaks regarding the GTX 1050 Ti but I am going to hold my judgment till I have seen some in-game performance. Enthusiasts claim that this upcoming GPU will rival the RX 470 when it comes to performance and that could be possible but when it comes to VRAM, the RX 470 has more to offer than what we see here. I could be wrong though and that might not matter. After all, both these cards are made for gamers that want to play games at 1080p and not more than that.
While 1440p might be tempting, there is a cost to consider there and 1080p is still a sweet spot for gaming. You can check out our article about 1080p Vs 1440p gaming if you want to learn more about that.
