Single Slot XFX RX550 and ASL GTX 1050 Ti Previewed

Thanks to forum member CC Ricers for the news tip!

The holy grails of SFF video cards, low profile and single slot, has just had a few cards added to the ranks. This is great news, and I realllllly want to have these cards to play with.

XFX

XFX, an AMD partner, has launched three new products;

  • a dual-slot and full profile Core Edition
  • a single-slot, full profile Core Edition
  • a dual-slot and low profile model

It’s these last two that excite me, low profile is my preferred form factor!

The ‘Core Edition OC’, a single slot, full profile model comes in both a 2GB and 4GB variant, with all other stats being the same.

GPU : Lexa PRO Base Clock : 1100 MHz
Cores : 512 Boost Clock : 1203 MHz (+1.7%)
TMUs : 32 Memory Clock : 7000 MHz
ROPs : 16 Memory : 2 GB or 4GB GDDR5 128b

The ‘Low Profile OC’ models are a dual slot, with dual slot stacked IO (Ughhh), pair of cards, with a 2GB and 4GB variant. As above, all other stats are the same between the two models.

GPU : Lexa PRO Base Clock : 1100 MHz
Cores : 512 Boost Clock : 1203 MHz (+1.7%)
TMUs : 32 Memory Clock : 7000 MHz
ROPs : 16 Memory : 2 GB or 4GB GDDR5 128b

ASL

Not just a dodgy acronym from the early days of the internet, ASL is also a GPU maker that seems to sell mostly in the Asian market.

This true dual slot, single slot GTX 1050 Ti is an offering from ASL. Known as the ‘GTX 1050 Ti Battle Flag’ (wut..), this card carries a small OC, and is only available in a 4GB variant. We have no word on availability for this card, but I have yet to see this brand on the ‘western’ market.

GPU : GP107-400 Base Clock : 1293 MHz (+0.2%)
Cores : 768 Boost Clock : 1392 MHz
TMUs : 48 Memory Clock : 7000 MHz
ROPs : 32 Memory : 4 GB GDDR5 128b

No word on availability on any of these cards yet, but they look to be ready for market, so I would suggest ‘Soon™’.

Thoughts? Leave them in the forum.
