GeForce GTX 1050 Gaming X 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 from the 10- series is, as an entry level graphics card, primarily focused on price and energy efficiency. The combination of 14 nm FinFET manufacturing, "Pascal" GPU architecture and the specifications of the GTX 1050 Ti enable operation of the reference card without any additional power connectors, while the GPU 107 GPU is capable of displaying many of the most popular online games at high details in Full HD resolutions.
The Features of the MSI GeForce GTX 1050 X 2G:
- Effective Twin-Frozr cooler
- GPU base clock: 1.442 MHz
- GPU boost clock: 1.556 MHz
- Memory frequency: 3.554 MHz (effective 7.008 MHz)
- Additional power connector: 1× 6-Pin PCIe
Compact GeForce GTX 1050 with Twin-Frozr Cooler
The MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Gaming X 2G is clocked as standard at 1.417 MHz, if additional performance is required this base clock can be increased with GPU Boost 3.0 up to 1.531 MHz. The MSI Gaming App allows the MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Gaming X 2G to switch over to "OC" mode. The OC mode raises the base clock to 1.442 MHz and the boost clock to 1.556 MHz. A third mode is also available, "Silent" mode. The 2 GB VRAM is connected to the GPU via a 128-bit interface and is clocked at an effective 7.008 MHz in "Gaming Mode" and 7.108 MHz in "OC" mode.
GeForce GTX 1050: Great Value & Efficient Performance for Full HD
Besides 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.
