NVIDIA has launched two budget graphic cards called GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti. They have 7GBPS GDDR5 memory clock with 128-bit memory Bus width and 112GB/sec memory bandwidth.
Both the graphics card are based on Pascal architecture and are built using Samsung’s 14nm process. They support maximum digital resolution of up to 7680 x 4320 pixels at 60Hz. Both of them have TDP of 75W.
The NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti has 768 CUDA cores with 48 texture units while the GTX 1050 comes with 640 CUDA cores and 40 Texture units. Their default clock speeds are 1290MHz and 1354 MHz respectively. Both of them have transistor count of 3.3 billion.
These entry level graphic cards are said to handle most popular games at 60fps. One thing to note is that both the 1050 cards are not VR Ready.
