Nvidia is expected to launch the new mainstream Nvidia GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti this month (Oct’16).
There have been speculations about the launch of GTX 1050 and 1050Ti in October to battle the AMD RX 470 and RX 460, which are already popular options for Gamers looking for affordable graphics cards. While there were some rumors last month about the Pascal cards coming, the recent 3D Mark leaks suggest they may launch as early as this month.
Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti
The GTX 1050 and 1050Ti comes with GP107 architecture. In the GTX 1050Ti GPU used is GP107-400 and the graphics card will come with 4 GB of VRAM. The graphics card score was spotted on 3D Mark 11 benchmark by a website called Chiphell and was alleged to run with Intel 6700K and the initial testing score of 10054 using the “Performance” preset and a 3860 using the “Extreme” preset.
While we already have Nvidia GTX 1060 with 3 GB VRAM and 6 GB VRAM available for purchase. The graphics card will have 128 Bit memory bus and will use 75 watts power. The leaked specs of the GTX 1050Ti suggests it comes with 768 CUDA cores.
For comparison a GTX 1060 comes with 1280 Cuda Cores and 192 Bit bus width.
Nvidia GTX 1050
The Nvidia GTX 1050 comes with a turn down CUDA cores of 640 with 4 GB and 2 GB VRam variants. The interesting thing about the GP107 is it has a TDP of 75W and probably won’t require the external power connector for the reference version and the manufactures like Asus, MSI etc… would add it to boost the performance of the card.
Nvidia GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti Specs Comparison
|Graphics Card||GTX 1050||GTX 1050Ti|
|Memory Bus Interference||128 bit bus||128 bit bus|
|FP32 Compute||1.8 TFLOPs||2.1 TFLOPs|
|VRAM||2GB and 4 GB GDDR5||4 GB GDDR5|
|Price||$119 (Rs 7200+CD+Vat)||$149 (Rs 9000+CD+VAT)|
Both the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050Ti comes with 3x Display Port 1.4 and 1x HDMI 2.0b. Both the graphics cards will use the 16 Nm FinFEET process for manufacturing like the rest of high end GTX 10 series cards.
Performance Benchmark Expected Prices
As stated above the Nvidia GTX 1050Ti scored 10,054 points in “Performance” preset and 3,867 points in the “Extreme” preset. Just for rough comparison the Nvidia GTX 950 and GTX 960 scores 9,000 and 10,000 on performance preset and in extreme preset GTX 950 and GTX 960 scored around 2,800 and 3,300 respectively.
The Nvidia GTX 1050 can easily replace the GTX 950 and triumph the performance of GTX 950 easily. While the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti can replace the Nvidia GTX 960 and will offer slightly higher performance but with a bit reduced price.
While the Nvidia GTX 1050 is alleged to be priced at $119 (Rs. 8000) in India we can expect to sell around Rs 11,000 while the GTX 1050 Ti $149 (10400) can be expected to be launched around Rs. 13K to 15K.
Nvidia is also expected to launch ultimate graphics card Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti soon. Nvidia is also offering Free Gears of War 4 with purchase of Nvidia GTX 1060, GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 graphics card. If you are buying the card, don’t forget to ask the seller to provide the free game.
