Spotted: Zotac GTX 1050 Mini and GTX 1050 TI Mini

Keeping a low profile is important for keeping the people watching me from seeing everything… No wait, we’re talking about low profile graphics here.

Sent in through our tipline, one of our observant readers has spotted that Zotac is readying two new LP ‘Mini’ cards – a GTX 1050 and a GTX 1050 TI. Both cards are bus powered, are rated at 75w, and feature the same dual-40mm cooling design, based on an extruded aluminium heatsink.

The Zotac GTX 1050 TI Mini features a base clock of 1290MHz, with boost to 1392MHz. 4GB GDDR5 is specified, on a 128 bit memory bus, at a rated ‘clock’ of 7GHz. Ports-wise, the card features a HDMI 2.0b port, DisplayPort 1.4 and (ughhhhh) a second tier, soldered on, Dual Link DVI port.

The second card. the Zotac GTX 1050 Mini¬†features a base clock of 1354MHz, with boost to 1455MHz. 2GB GDDR5 is specified, on a 128 bit memory bus, also at a rated ‘clock’ of 7GHz. Ports-wise, the card features a HDMI 2.0b port, DisplayPort 1.4 and (again, ughhhhh) a second tier, soldered on, Dual Link DVI port. Interesting here is the discrepancy. The above port listing is courtesy of Zotac’s spec list, however the product shots/renders show a second DisplayPort instead of the HDMI port.

New LP cards entering the market is always a good thing. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the forum.
