The final prices for the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 have been confirmed. The prices were leaked in official material that has been gathered by Videocardz. Aiming at the entry-level market, the GTX 1050 series will shake up things in the sub-$150 segment.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GeForce GTX 1050 Official Prices Confirmed

The GeForce GTX 1050 series will be bringing Pascal down to the more affordable range. Replacing the GTX 750 Ti and GTX 950 would be the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Replacing the GTX 750 would be the GeForce GTX 1050. Both cards are based on the GP107 core architecture which is the smallest of the bunch we have seen so far. This core is also quite power efficient with TDPs of both cards set below 100W which is impressive.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti features 768 CUDA Cores. The core comes packed with 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The chip is clocked at 1318 MHz core and 1392 MHz boost frequency which is just around a 250 MHz jump over the GM107 GPU. The texture fill rate of the chip goes up to 84 GTexel/s (almost twice of GM107).The pixel fill rate is maintained at 41.3 GPixel/s that is a good increase over Maxwell. The card should also feature 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 7 GHz. This gives us 112 GB/s bandwidth along the narrow 128-bit bus interface.

The card will be priced at $139 US which is a really sweet price considering that it only costs $20 more than the Radeon RX 460 yet going to be faster. The card will feature the same TDP as the Radeon RX 460’s Polaris 11 core, coupled with all the enhancements Pascal brings for gamers. This card will be available in various custom models on launch and we can expect those to follow the reference pricing.

Moving on to the next variant, we have the GTX 1050. The non-Ti variant features a cut down, Pascal based GP107 core. It has specifications configured at 640 CUDA cores, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs.  It will have a few bits disabled here and there, the clock speeds are maintained at 1354 MHz and 1455 MHz boost clocks. The card will be available in both 2 GB and 4 GB RAM models.

Priced at $109 US, this model can be a effective solution against the Radeon RX 460 which has the same price point. The card will also feature a 75W TDP which means no extra power connector would be required. We will see some models not even closing in on the 75W limit while boosting past the reference clock speeds.

NVIDIA AIB Partners Ready For GTX 1050 Series With Vast Array of Custom Models – Pascal GeForce 10 Series A Big Hit

As expected, NVIDIA AIB partners are already ready with a vast array of GeForce GTX 1050 custom cards. Both the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 will be available in many custom flavors to select from. Cards ranging from single fan and dual fan solutions or those with and without power connectors will attract a majority of budget PC builders.

Talking about the graphics market in general, Q3 2016 has seen a large increase in shipment and sales of NVIDIA’s mid-range and high-end graphics cards. Digitimes reports that NVIDIA partners MSI and Gigabyte will be shipping over 4.8 and 3.45 million graphics cards in 2016.

As demand from the gaming market continue rising, and virtual reality (VR) applications are growing popular, graphics card players such as Micro-Star International (MSI), Asustek Computer, Gigabyte Technology, Colorful, Galaxy and Zotac, are seeing their Nvidia-based mid-range to high-end product sales increase with MSI and Gigabyte expected to ship over 4.8 and 3.45 million graphics cards in 2016, according to sources from the upstream supply chain. via Digitimes

It looks like the new entry level cards would further help in increasing graphics card sales among the various AIBs. NVIDIA is expected to have increased their graphics market share in the third quarter and with no imminent competition from AMD this year, that is further expected to rise in the enthusiast and high-end sector.
