Review MSI GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition – Good For 1080P Gaming
Next is the lone benchmark Performance – Furmark, a punishing benchmark for GPU performance. It measures FPS and provides an overall score for graphics performance. Furmark Score was impressive for the 1050 Ti which is about 20% higher compared to the R9 280.
Adobe Photoshop and Premier Pro Performance
The Adobe Photoshop performance for the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti was a bit of zinger. It managed to render the same image in 2.1 seconds, almost equally fast as our GTX 1070 FE. I am not sure what helped it, was it the 14 Nm process or it was the lucky day for the Ti, it out paced even the 1060 in this benchmark.
Adobe Premier Pro Video Editing Test – Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti
While I was super pleased with the Adobe Photoshop performance, the 1050 Ti is not a slouch when it comes to video editing either. While editing a 1080P video it took 157 seconds that is just 3 seconds more when compared to the GTX 1060. The only test where our old AMD R9 280 managed to push ahead by 2 seconds.
Temperature And Noise
The MSI Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti is a cool customer. This is one thing which I really liked about this card and even after pushing it in most of the graphics intensive games it stayed below 67 degree Celcius.
The single fan was near silent in most of the games and kicked in when things got a little heated up. Overall a quite and cool experience , a much needed thing in Delhi summers. I have seen some of the cards touching 90 degree Celcius, in the past, one of the Zotac Mini GTX 970 reached those levels. But not the MSI GTX 1050 Ti.
MSI GTX 1050 Ti also come with a 6 pin connector variant called as MSI Gaming 4G GTX 1050 Ti, which offers more room for overclocking and heat dissipation.
Concluding Thoughts – IS the GTX 1050 Ti Good for 1080P Gaming?
Alot has changed in last 3 years in graphics card world. The new Nvidia Pascal architecture based cards push the limits for performance and at the same time use lesser energy. The small form factor, silent operation and game ready drivers all contribute to the gaming experience on PC. The performance jumps are significant to make the older cards look pale.
The Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti is a solid graphics card for 1080P gaming, pair it with a Core i3 or AMD FX 6300 or higher and you are set to rule the latest titles. It is excellent upgrade for those who don’t want to buy a new power supply or spend too much money on buying everything new in the rig.

Upgrade – If you have an old AMD R9 270 or 7850 or 7770 or someting similar the GTX 1050 Ti can give your gaming experience a major boost. On the other hand if you are still using a GTX 650 or 650 Ti or even a GTX 750 Ti, the new 1050 Ti is an ideal upgrade. Roughly you can gain between 30% to 80% in different gaming titles.
Competition – Even when compared to the AMD RX 460 the Nvidia GTX 1050 ti offers at least 15 to 20% gain in different gaming titles. While the AMD RX 470 is a significantly faster graphics card and competes with the Nvidia GTX 1060 (3 GB VRAM) with almost similar price.
Portable Compact PC – Gone are the days when you needed a very large gaming cabinet or a very large size GPU to showcase the great gaming performance to your friends. This tiny GTX 1050 Ti can be packed in smaller a case, and can offer ultimate performance with minimal heat and noise.
1080P or 720P Gaming Rig – It easily beats our old faithful AMD R9 280 and in most titles manage to stay above 60 FPS @ 1080P resolution. Even cranking the graphics to High and Very High settings don’t make it break sweat. On a 720P monitor you may be able to push everything to ultra and even then you may easily hit the 60 FPS mark.
