Let’s Review ASUS GeForce GTX 1050!
ASUS’ gaming adventure has taken a new shape with advancement in gaming graphics.
PC gamers prefer Asus for its extraordinary and gaming oriented products. Dimensions of PC gaming is way too much different from XBOX or PlayStation.
Furthermore, in most of the cases, the computer often lags between the game. A simple solution to this problem is a graphics card that takes the load of its own.
It also reduces the burden on the computer and keeps it from getting hot which might affect the whole system.
ASUS GeForce GTX 1050 Graphics Card:
ASUS is one of the best graphics card makers and it has a variety of card to adjust the graphics problem.
Although they are far superior in performance but still they carry a hefty price tag. For those who are searching for a budget-oriented graphics card with satisfactory performance, they better go off with low-end Asus GeForce GTX 1050 with 4 GB RAM.
|Graphics Processor||GeForce GTX|
|Dimensions||1.5 x 9.5 x 5.1 in|
|Memory Bus Width||128 bits|
|Memory Clock Speed||1392 MHz|
|Max Screen Resolution||7680 x 4320|
These are some technical details of this card. Let’s dig into the design and features.
Received this card just two weeks ago and it came with the simple box, covered in ROG wrapper.
ROG stands for Republic of Gamers and they usually get affiliated with most of the gaming brands such as Asus ROG Spatha.
A Little bit hard to open, GTX 1050 comes with all black in color. Dimensions are 1.5 x 9.5 x 5.1 in which make it fairly good in terms of area coverage.
Top of the card features ROG and STRIX logo while backplate is pretty much plain. Moving on we have 6 pin connectors on the back.
Additionally, we have two fans, each 100 mm. They are a little bit large but the overall structure is compact and nicely packed. And finally, we have display port 1.4, HDMI 2.0 port and 2 DVI port.
GTX 1050 is basically the successor of 9XX series which proved its ability fairly well. It has surely made some improvement such as increasing clock speed to 1392 MHz as compared to 960 which stood at 1024MHz.
The price tag to this card comes in the economic category and I am surprised to see a low-end device from ASUS. I have also gone through Asus AMD Radeon R7 250 too which was also a low-priced device but it was no match for 1050. Radeon R7 had some major lags in performance and it doesn’t suit to modern day games.
Asus claims that GTX 1050 can perform 30% cooler and 3x quieter thanks to patented wing blades. That basically means fewer fans usage which is directly proportional to less power consumption. Well ASUS has a well-known reputation but I will still test the card with some big names.
I will be testing Counter-Strike, Hitman, Gears of War 4 and GTA V with this card. I am using Lenovo Ultrabook with Intel Core i7 processor, 8 gigs of RAM on Windows 10 Creators Update. Let’s get into the testing system.
So the question arises that is GTX 1050 is really a better option. I would like to add a comment here. There are some other alternatives available that can give an enhanced performance at cost of some extra bucks. Heavy gaming doesn’t make a good theme here in my opinion. But still, it goes well with the budget-oriented gaming community and a better alternative to Asus AMD Radeon R7 250.
