NVidia GTX 1050 is coming soon, beats AMD RX 460

October 19, 2016

NVidia has unveiled the final cards in its 10 series, with the NVidia GTX 1050 and NVidia GTX 1050 Ti. Due out later this month in the US and UK, and at a starting price point of $109USD, gamers can expect the card to hit 60FPS at 1080P without any external power required.

The NVidia GTX 1050 Ti card will boast 4GB of GDDR5 RAM with 112GB/s of bandwidth, 768 CUDA cores and a boost clock of 1392MHz, while the base NVidia GTX 1050 will have just 2GB of GDDR5 RAM and 640 CUDA cores but will actually maintain the same bandwidth, and have a higher boost clock of 1455MHz.


Both cards, according to NVidia, will handle games like The Witcher 3, GTA V, Fallout 4 and Overwatch at an average of over 60FPS in 1080p resolution on medium graphics settings.

Unfortunately we’ve got no news from NVidia Australia as to when we can expect the cardsĀ on our shores, but a lot of Aussie PC gamers are purchasing through Amazon and other sources these days, and usually finding that it works out to be cheaper. We expect the cards to retail for around the $199-249AUD mark.
