    NVIDIA Introduces GeForce GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti

    We’re adding two new gaming GPUs to our award-winning lineup of NVIDIA-Pascal based GPUs — the GeForce GTX 1050, starting at $109, and the GTXD 1050 Ti, starting at $139.

    Both will let you play your favorite games at a smooth 60 frames-per-second.

    Built on the same Pascal architecture as the most advanced GPUs in the world, the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti let new PC gamers discover why GeForce delivers the best gaming experiences.

    These GPUs are a great choice for new gamers. Here’s why:

    1) The PC Is the Premier Gaming Platform

    If you’re a new gamer, these two new GPUs let you be a part of the biggest story in gaming. PC gaming is thriving because it’s open, dynamic and upgradable and developers are releasing more games for the PC than any other platform.

    From first person shooters to massive online battle areas, from top strategy games to simulation games, the PC offers the richest variety of gaming experiences.

    2) eSports Are Bigger Than Ever

    One of the biggest drivers of PC gaming is eSports, which continues to grow in popularity with a viewership of almost 300 million people in 2016 alone. This growth creates a virtuous cycle of increasing prize pools which continue to attract the world’s best talent. In fact, the $20 million prize pool for the latest DOTA 2 International is double that of both the Cricket World Cup 2016 and the 2016 Masters Golf tournament.

    New content like Overwatch — which has drawn 77 million viewers in the first 2 months — continues to drive immense interest. And as more people watch eSports, more people are playing PC games.

    3) Modern Games Need Modern Performance

    The GPU performance required to run a modern game at 1080p and 60fps with good quality settings has tripled for modern current generation games. So if you bought a GPU 3 or 4 years ago — such as the GeForce GTX 650 — and were able to play the latest games back then, you’ll find your graphics performance coming up short in today’s games.

    With the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti, you’ll be able to play today’s most popular games at a smooth 60fps, while sipping a paltry 75 watts of power.

    Out of the box the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti are both blazing fast, with the GTX 1050 Ti on average 40% faster and more than 128% more power efficient than the closest competitive product at stock speeds(1), demonstrating again the prowess of our Pascal architecture and GeForce GTX lineup.

    And upgrading to the GTX 1050 or 1050 Ti couldn’t be any easier. Neither need an external power connector. Yet both deliver unheard of levels of performance and power efficiency for this class of product. Just plug in the card, install our GeForce Experience software, click a button to optimize game settings and game on.

    4) Powerful Hardware Requires Powerful Software

    GeForce is more than just the No. 1 brand in PC gaming. There are over 100 million GeForce PC gamers today, which is far and away the most popular brand on Steam and it’s the most popular GPU in iCafes around the world. When professional gamers are competing for multimillion dollar prize pools, the brand they overwhelmingly trust is GeForce.

    In addition to high performance gaming hardware, we’ve also created very powerful software. More than 300 specialized graphics engineers work closely with game developers to integrate the latest game technology into their titles. We deliver Game Ready drivers alongside the latest titles so gamers world-wide are always enjoying the best gaming experience. And our GeForce Experience application pulls it all together to provide instant driver updates, automatic game optimizations, the ability to share your favorite gaming experiences, and a host of giveaways to gamers everywhere.

    GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti: Available Everywhere from Everyone

    GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti custom boards will be available from NVIDIA GeForce Partners, including ASUS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, iGame, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. NVIDIA GeForce partners represent a global network that will deliver GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti to gamers in 238 countries and territories. GTX 1050 Ti will be available on October 25, while the GTX 1050 will be available on or before November 8.

    The Ti has somewhat better specs with 768 CUDA cores instead of 640. Also, the Ti version has more RAM, 4GB compared to 2GB in the basic GTX 1050.

    Then you'd go for a 1060 wouldn't you?

    I wouldn't go for any of them since I'm not much of a gamer and am completely happy with my 750Ti.

    These cards, specially the 1050 Ti seem quite nice, if prices are kept low. According to some benchmarks I have just seen, 1050 Ti seems to be on par with GTX 960, being cheaper and requiring quite less power. In fact, those cards have a TDP of just 75W. They don't even need a pci-e power connector, and they keep a low profile. Good for a budget pc.
