SFF.Network [SFF Network] NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti and 1050 Announced

The long-awaited 75W Pascal cards are almost here, with today's announcement of the NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050. These new cards fill out the previously missing entry-level of NVIDIA's Pascal-series product stack. AnandTech has a great overview of the new cards but unfortunately there are no actual reviews yet. The retail release date is next week on the 25th, so presumably we'll see actual performance figures sometime close to that date.

Read more here.

If the benchmark speculation holds up these cards should be pretty sweet. Sell your 750Ti now before these hit and upgrade for cheap and keep the power savings. Or we can hope that the 750s go for less than 90 used on ebay finally.

It seems a bit ridiculous that some of the 1050s will be full-length. I just saw an article on Tom's US where they said that EVGA will be producing 5 versions each of the 1050 and 1050Ti (those would be the "normal", SC, SSC, FTW and FTW+ versions, with the normal and SC being the "short" single-fan versions, the rest featuring 2 fans - no blowers announced as far as I can tell).

I seem to remember seeing a Thin mITX board with a 16x connector fairly recently. I am thinking that board plus one of these could make for a bloody small and potent build. Anyone remember the board and able to tell me where it came from? I took a look around this morning and couldn't find it anywhere. Cheers.

Cool, it's official now. AIBs coming out with lots of mini cards which is good. But yeah, no LPs which is a shame given that Quadros with higher than 75W TDP have been released as low-profile versions. That may be because NVidia has had complete control over the Quadro designs whereas with the GeForce cards it's usually left up to the card manufacturers.

@ilovelampshade, if you remember what that Thin mITX board was, let us know!

While this isn't the one I was looking for, it's pretty interesting to say the least

Pretty interesting board, especially with a Mini-SAS HD connector, and having both the option to use 24-pin power (in case you want to re-use that Pico you have) or go with a 4-pin power source.

Pretty nice to actually have some options for how you want to power the board. Lots of SATA headers and NVMe capability is pretty nice as well.

According to Anandtech the 1050 & 1050 ti are being made on Samsung's 14nm rather than TSMC's 16nm. It'll be interesting to see how it compares to the other pascal cards then. Undoubtedly it's going to be a good card based on what's known, but I'm a bit pessimistic and have a feeling perf/watt is going to be worse at equal clock speeds relative to the other pascal cards.

Price is nice though - $139 for 1050 ti :D

; )

In all seriousness though, looks like the EVGA Superclocked single fan 1050ti is going to come out shorter than an R9 Nano at 144.48mm. Might be a nice pairing with a mini STX build since it's the same length.

So essentially the 1050 Ti should offer GTX 960 performance (the bare minimum I would say for W3-TWH, BF1 etc.) at a 75W TDP?

According to manufacturer-provided comparisons. We'll have to wait a bit for independent testing to confirm it.

I'm actually interested a lot in the overclocking capabilities of these cards. The GP107 is speculated to overclock easily with its 14nm process, and maybe possible to push close to the performance of a GTX 970.

Same here. If what the most recent leaks are saying is true then I'm already eating my own words about being skeptical of GP107 on 14nm.

Reviews are supposed to be out next week apparently.

Over clocking off the PCIe slot or are these models with connectors?

For Canadian buyers, these are up as of midnight on NCIX.com. Just ordered the EVGA 1050ti SC.
