Nvidia’s New GTX 1050 Cards Are For the Masses

Budget gamers rejoice. Nvidia’s latest GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti not only hit the lowest price points for the series yet, but are also among the most power efficient ones out there.

The standard GTX 1050 comes with 640 CUDA cores, 3.3 billion transistors and a 128-bit memory bus. It also gets 2 GB worth 7Gbps GDDR5 memory with a bandwidth of 112 GB/s and a boost clock of 1455 MHz.

The slightly more powerful GTX 1050 Ti is slightly higher-end as it comes with an increased number of CUDA cores at 768, and the same transistors, GP107 GPU and memory bus.

There is increased 4 GB GDDR5 RAM though with a clock speed of 1392 MHz and bandwidth of 112 GB/s. Both addons come with a single DisplayPort, HDMI and Dual-Link DVI ports.

The graphic cards have a TDP of 75W, and don’t require external connectors. These 1050 series cards can even run on a 300W supply. Nvidia’s cards are generally more efficient than AMD’s, which have struggled to work under the designated TDP. The Nvidias are built on a 14 nm process.

Nvidia is directing these cards towards non-aggressive, low-budget users as well as eSports fans. The cards are set to run most AAA titles at 1080p 60 fps, including GTA V, Bioshock Infinite and The Division.

Pricing starts at just $109 for the GTX 1050, while for the 1050 Ti, it is set at $139.

If they are readily available, this series could give AMD even more headache, as they are already struggling to compete in the other price segments.

  • Still in Pakistan they are going to be sold at 20k+. Look at the state of 1070 and 1080 for instance. They are selling them with a shameful 15-20k markup. It is better to import a card than buy from the greedy local vendors.

    • Dear can you suggest any international vendors website who ships these products in Pakistan.

        • thanks for the heads up on those sites mate. really good ones. and they ship to Pakistan albeit on a higher rate.

          but so far the 1050 and ti are not listed on both sites. tell me about the condition of the products u have imported? brand new or refurbished? bcz one can never be sure these days!

          • Glad I was of help. All products that I have imported are brand new. No refurbished stuff. Apart from lighter items like SD cards, and a couple of SSDs and HDDs, all items were shipped express and arrived at my door within a week/10 days max. Had to pay around 5% duties and taxes on all items coming Express. Those delivered by PakPost had taxes in the 0-2% range.

            The sad thing is that even with the high shipping rates and duties and taxes, all items save a couple cost less than the amount they are sold for in the local market.

            As for the 1050, it is a very new release. These sites will have it in stock by Black Friday. I suggest you do your shopping on BH on Black Friday. They really slash their rates then! :)

            • Hassan Bhai farz kary maine gtx 1080 750$ mai buy kia tu sar shiping charges or texas ke sath price kaha tak jaye ga.

              • Kidhr se mangva rahe ho aap? Shipping charges seller pr depend krte hain. Custom duty 1-1.5% ke beech mein hoti hai. With addition of other charges ye taqreeban 5-7% tk ja skti hai. Normally, agr parcel PakPost se a rha hai to charges km hain aur agr kisi Express service (DHL, FedEx, UPS) se a rha hai to charges max hote hain.

    • Yes all are looters here one cell I wanna buy from aliexpress is $153 named Oukitel k6000 Pro and pakistani online seller named Zimruh is selling in $218.50. When I tell them they reply price is final. What the hell Looting looting. Its a bad example for pakistani

  • Yea, yea, yea. I just want to know how much they’re going to sell for in PKR.

    I would flip my sh*t if the regular 1050 is sold for anymore than 12000.
