Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti Specs and Performance (Expected)

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will be based on a fully enabled Pascal GP107 GPU featuring 768 CUDA cores, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The GPU is clocked at 1318MHz base and 1392MHz boost frequency. The 4GB GDDR5 memory is clocked at 7GHz giving a total of 112GB/s bandwidth across a 128-bit bus interface.

The card is expected to feature 75W TDP which means there won’t be a need for extra connections for power and it should be provided via the PCIe 3.0 socket alone.

In terms of performance, some purported early benchmarks show that the 1050 Ti is a massive overclocker. The card scores 1895 points in FireStrike Ultra, and 2513 points in Time Spy. Based on these results, we can expect the upcoming entry-level card to outperform a lot of custom variants of the Radeon R9 380 and GTX 960 cards.

Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti could launch on October 25 with a price tag of approx $149.
