It is a fact that quality and price have a directly proportional relation. 😉
I am not talking about luxury devices where price is way too much high as compared to the quality. 😀
Gaming is one of the fields where this rule gets a major application.
PS4 and XBOX One aren’t the only choices for gamers.
Many still prefer their computers and laptops for hardcore gaming. But you see, computers and Ultrabooks have their own limitations in terms of hardware and performance and for most of the time, they can’t handle the load of heavy games.
In other words, gamers can’t have full fledged gaming experience on these devices due to their own limitations.
Gaming laptops are however a good solution to this problem. They are fully equipped with everything that a gamer needs to play heavy games such as Forza Horizon, GTA V, Battlefield etc. They are designed for gaming and have potential to run games without any interruption and fluctuation. But the biggest drawback is that they have expensive as hell. Most of them range from $1400 USD to $3000 which isn’t a good deal for many of the gamers.
Therefore there exists a need for an intermediate solution which should be both economical and non-compromising on quality.
Let’s Review EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Graphic Card:
And yes, there’s a solution and that is the graphics card. The purpose of gaming card is to retain the best graphics quality of the game which couldn’t possibly be held by the computer itself without putting the burden on PC.
We have plenty of cards available in market having varying quality and performances. Not everyone is your cup of tea. But that doesn’t mean you will have to waste your time searching for the best one.
Here at GadgetSkull, we aim to provide you with the unbiased review so you don’t have to hassle about it. So, this time the gaming giant is EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. Powered by Nvidia, it is also referred as Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.
It is the latest addition to GTX 10XX series and includes the best features from its predecessors. It was released as a duo along with GTX 1050 which is little bit inexpensive and has some performance lags.
But both of them come in affordable price range to power up your PC for some exciting gaming experience. They are also the last graphics card Nvidia introduced this year.
Let’s keep the things running in the traditional manner. I would like you to have a look on specs:
- Graphics Card Interface: PCI-E
- Card Coprocessor: GeForce GTX
- RAM: 4GB
- Hardware Connectivity: PCI-Ex16
- Built-in Media: EVGA GTX 1050 Ti GAMING Graphics Card, Driver CD, Installation Guide, EVGA Gaming Poster, Powered by EVGA Case Badge, EVGA Enthusiast Built Sticker
- Memory Bus Width: 128 bits
- Clock Speed: 7010 MHz
- Dimensions: 1.5 x 5.7 x 4.38 in
GTX 1050 has improved manifolds over its predecessor such as GTX 750 and GTX 950. It replaces the six pin power connector, a traditional way to take power from the device, with the motherboard which has now become a multifunctional component.
This way it has also reduced the weight and number of additional components. Just insert it into your PC and there you go.
It is assumed that processor for this device is manufactured by Samsung. Still, it isn’t confirmed and is just a rumor.
But if Samsung is really behind this card, I don’t think there should be any mistrust about the quality (Forget the Note 7 for this time). Instead of 16 nm processor, GTX 1050 now hold 14 nm processor for upgraded performance.
Nvidia claims that this card will boost the performance of your PC 8 times. For example with this card, your old PC can run games at 7 frames per second while the latest PC such as core i5 Skylark can take it up to 9.3 fps.
But the real miracle is done by GTX 1050 Ti which takes it to a new level and that’s 61.2 fps.
Isn’t that amazing? Hey, stop there. We haven’t tested it yet. 😀
Let’s check whether the performance proves this claim or not. I am testing it on my core i5 Skylake. I have four games to make a check and they are Gears of War 4, Rise of Tomb Raider, Mass Effect: Andromeda and Witcher 3.
I tried to run these games before inserting graphics card into PC. Unfortunately, only Tomb Raider managed to give a satisfactory performance. Other than that, three of them refused to give a good screenplay.
Note that 1050 Ti takes your graphics quality to 1080p. I observed the same case here. Mass Effect: Andromeda and Gears of War 4 ran above average on my PC. I do not blame card for this problem. May be my PC is also a little bit slow. Tomb Raider and Witcher 3 gave excellent performance.
So, folks, that’s all for GTX 1050 Ti. As per this writing, there are no such games that this card can’t’ take care of. 4GB of RAM is sufficient to give good frames per second at Full HD resolution. So this device is definitely my recommendation.
