GTX 1050 with i7-8700K 1080p, 1440p, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality

The GTX 1050 's power requirements are reasonable and it is very efficient compared to the competition. With regards to max load temperature, the GTX 1050 's cooling is excellent at keeping it cool and under control. With current 3072 MB RAM, the GTX 1050 can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

The GTX 1060 6GB might be the entry-level flagship of the latest Pascal set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most budget PC gamers. On the other hand, the GTX 1050 is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 169. The good news is, with the release of the GTX 1050 Ti, the GTX 1050 's price is getting more discount.

NVIDIA ’s xx50 cards have always been defined by budget prices with performance that knocks on the door of entry-level graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Pascal graphics card inside the GTX 1050, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend. The GTX 1050 has 3 GB RAM compared to the GTX 950 's 2 GB video memory.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the GTX 1050 consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTX 950, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. Whether it is a justifiable upgrade depends on what graphics card you are upgrading from. Users with a GTX 950 will not see a remarkable increase in frame rates after paying more for this GTX 1050. Similarly, those holding onto RX 560 's RX 460 graphics cards will not have a reason to jump teams yet.
