Compact GeForce GTX 1050 with Factory Overclock
The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 is clocked at 1.366 as standard, if additional performance is required this base clock can be increased with GPU Boost 3.0 up to 1.468 MHz. Gigabyte's XTREME software enables the GeForce GTX 1050 to switch to "OC" mode. The OC mode raises the boost clock to 1.392 MHz and the boost clock to 1.506 MHz. The 2 GB VRAM is connected to the GPU via a 128 bit interface and is clocked at an effective 7.008 MHz. The cooling of the GeForce GTX 1050 is provided by Gigabyte's semi-passive cooler design with a single-fan layout.
GeForce GTX 1050: Great Value & Efficient Performance for Full HDBesides the 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM the GeForce GTX 1050 comes with 640 CUDA cores, 40 texture- and 32 render units, which gives the GTX 1050 an impressive degree of performance, especially when taking into account the low 75 Watt TDP and the low cost. As an entry-level graphics card the GTX 1050 is primarily aimed at gaming in Full HD.
At first glance the technical specifications of the GeForce GTX 1050 may not seem like anything to get worked up about, but thanks to the "Pascal" GPU architecture the GTX 1050 is a deceptively powerful card for its size. The GTX 1050 benefits from the optimised GPU Boost 3.0 and many other features in the Pascal architecture.
Some of the supported features include, among others, NVIDIA technologies like "Simultaneous Multi Projection" (SMP), "Dynamic Super Resolution" (DSR) as well as "Ansel". In terms of video outputs the card comes with Dual-Link DVI, HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.3/1.4. The GTX 1050 is also compatible with G-Sync monitors.
In order for the card to reach its full potential in the long-term, new drivers should be downloaded and installed from NVIDIA or the third party manufacturer at regular intervals.
