First performance results of the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card have been leaked over at Chiphell. The leaker also posted the specifications in the form of GPUz which we will be matching with earlier leaked info. The GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti will be the first cards based on the latest Pascal GP107 GPU.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Performance Results and Specifications Leaked

The GeForce GTX 1050 series are expected to feature two cards. These include the GeForce GTX 1050 and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Both models feature the new GP107 GPU. This GPU is considered as an entry level chip in the Pascal family.

NVIDIA’s Pascal GPUs are the most advanced and the most efficient FinFET based chips made to date.

The card replacing both the GTX 750 Ti and GTX 950 is the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. If leaks hold any credibility, we can see this card in Mid-October. The card features a fully enabled GP107 die and has 4 GB of GDDR5 ram. The price of this model is expected around $149 US. NVIDIA has kept much of the architectural hierarchy of Pascal similar to Maxwell. Hence, we can see a similar core config, albeit with added enhancements for max performance and efficiency.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Specifications – 768 Cores

The GTX 1050 Ti features 768 CUDA Cores. This would mean we are looking at 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. As for clock speeds, we are looking at 1318 MHz core and 1380 MHz boost clock which is around a 250 MHz jump over the GM107 GPU. This increases the texture fill rate up to 84 GTexel/s (almost twice of GM107). The card should also feature up to 4 GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 7 GHz. This gives us 112 GB/s bandwidth along the narrow 128-bit bus interface.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPUz:

This would mean we are looking at 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. As for clock speeds, we are looking at 1290 MHz base and 1392 MHz boost clock which is around a 250 MHz jump over the GM107 GPU. This increases the texture fill rate up to 82.5 GTexel/s (almost twice of GM107). The pixel fill rate is maintained at 41.3 GPixel/s. The device ID for the chip is 1C82 and has the A1 revision. The leaker used a card that was made by NVIDIA AIB, Colorful. We can expect this variant to be custom cooled but sticks to the reference clock speeds.

We can confirm that this leak holds credibility since the device ID matches that of the Pascal family that was leaked months ago. You can see the device ID names in the list below:

  • 1C80 Graphics Device (GP107-A)
  • 1C81 Graphics Device (GP107-A)
  • 1C82 Graphics Device (GP107-A)
  • 1CA7 Graphics Device (GP107GL-A)
  • 1CA8 Graphics Device (GP107GL-A)
  • 1CAA Graphics Device (GP107GL-A)
  • 1CC2 Graphics Device (GP107-B)

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Performance – Faster Than The GTX 960 at Lower Cost and Price?

The performance of the card was tested in 3DMark 11. This is a synthetic benchmark but shows us a good comparison versus its Maxwell based predecessors. The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti scores 10,054 points in the performance preset and 3,867 points in the extreme preset. We aren’t looking at any CPU side bottlenecks since the tester used a Core i7-6700K processor. Now we cannot conclude final performance based on these numbers since there are still several weeks before these cards are launched. Also to note is that the drivers need to be optimized for GPUs to showcase their maximum potential.

NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti performance numbers in 3DMark 11 Performance preset.

For comparison, we will be using the average numbers scored by GTX 950 and GTX 960 cards. In 3DMark 11 Extreme preset, the GTX 950 scores around 2800 points while the GTX 960 scores around 3300 points. These are based on numbers from factory overclocked variants. Similarly, in performance preset, the GTX 950 scores 9000 points while the GTX 960 scores 10,000 points.

Based on the leaked performance and pricing figures, the GTX 1050 Ti can be a very competitive solution at $149 US. This card has the potential to attract a wide range of gamers. One of the biggest selling point can be its 75W TDP requirement. This would mean that most of the cards will run without requiring extra connectors for power. Making the card a very decent option for budget (plug and play) builds. The GTX 1050 on the other hand is expected to come at an even lower price point of $119 US, along with a cut down core to take on the RX 460. We will see how that model performs once we have more information about it.
