NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 Now Available

NVIDIA announced retail availability of its GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 graphics cards. Targeting two key sub-$200 price-points, and positioned as gateways to competitive e-Sports gaming, the two chips compete with AMD Radeon RX 460 and RX 470, and exploit a vast price/performance gap between the two. The GTX 1050 Ti starts at USD $139.99, while the GTX 1050 starts at $109.99. Since there are no reference-design cards, all cards available from today are custom-design implementations of all shapes and sizes.

The GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 are based on the new "GP107" silicon, NVIDIA's first built on the 14 nm FinFET process. Both chips are implementations of NVIDIA "Pascal" architecture. The GTX 1050 Ti features 768 CUDA cores, 48 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 4 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide interface. The GTX 1050, on the other hand, features 640 CUDA cores, 40 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across the 128-bit memory bus. Both cards have their TDP rated at 75W.

Big surprise here :rolleyes:, according to Newegg:

1 GTX 1050 in stock, $109.99 (right on target MSRP)

1 GTX 1050 Ti in stock, $139.99 (right on target MSRP)

5 more GTX 1050 Ti card in stock, $144.99 - $169.99

So most of the cards are over MSRP on launch. Business as usual.

170$ for this card is waaaaaay too much. I mean, seriously, you can find much cheaper 970 card on eBay for double the performance. Really nVidia...

I really like the EVGA single fan SC 1050 Ti, should be the best performing mini card yet, not bad for $150. I guess I'll be building a sweet mini-ITX system for Christmas this year...

The problem in this price range is that once you go above MSRP, you get into the MSRP of the next, more powerful card territory. Sure, that will be priced above MSRP as well, but all it takes is one or two designs that aren't and all of a sudden, your overpriced product doesn't feel so good any longer.

On the other hand, shareholders will have your head if you don't at least try to milk it while you can ;)

@btarunr Do you think we're gonna see even lower end versions, or is this as low as it goes now?

I'm thinking of those cheapies one can get for about £30-50. I suspect we won't as this is IGP territory nowadays. I would have liked to have one as a spare test card and for comparing to my 1080.
