NVIDIA GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti set to launch in October, prices start at $119


It looks like we’ll see the launch of the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti next month. The latest leaks detailing NVIDIA’s upcoming entry-level video cards show that they’ll be powered by the GP107 GPU, which will replace the outgoing GM107 silicon. The cards are rumored to debut in mid-October, with the GTX 1050 priced at just $119 while the 1050 Ti estimated to retail at $149.

According to the leak, the GTX 1050 Ti is set to feature 768 CUDA cores, which means we’ll be looking at 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The base clock is set to be 1318MHz, with a boost clock of 1380MHz. Memory is estimated to be 4GB GDDR5 clocked at 7GHz over a 128-bit memory bus, resulting in memory bandwidth of 112GB/s.

Meanwhile, the GTX 1050 is rumored to offer 2GB of GDDR5 memory, with 640 CUDA cores and 1354MHz base clock and 1455MHz boost clock. As is the case with all NVIDIA cards, the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti will come in custom variants by AIB partners.

The GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti will make Pascal features more accessible to a wider audience. The estimated 75W power requirements will also make the card an ideal entry-level offering for those looking to use it in an HTPC/min-ITX chassis.
