MSI Unveils GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Low-profile Graphics Card

MSI unveiled the first half-height (low-profile) graphics card based on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. The MSI GTX 1050 Ti 4GT LP graphics card features a half height PCB, and a dual-slot cooling solution that uses a pair of 50 mm fans ventilating a dense aluminium heatsink. The card is 18.2 cm in length, and includes both standard- and low-profile I/O shields.

The MSI GTX 1050 Ti 4GT LP relies on the PCI-Express slot for all its power. It ticks at NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 1290 MHz core, 1392 MHz GPU Boost, and 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. It features 4 GB of GDDR5 memory across the GPU's 128-bit wide memory interface. Display outputs include one each of dual-link DVI, HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort 1.4 connectors. MSI didn't reveal pricing.

Good to see MSI in continuing to support the LP market. My USFF HTPC lives another year or 3!

However, it is disappointing that they chose the same cooler. That heatsink is identical to the 750ti heatsink. They made the PCB longer, but didnt make the heatsink bigger. given their LP 750ti could be a bit loud, they could use the bigger heatsink.

HP Elite SFF systemst with Sandy/Ivy Bridge i5's can be had for about €150. Slap this in it and you have a serious little gamer!

Yes! After all, I can finally ditch my 950 and go back to Slim ITX case!
Used to have an LP GTX750Ti and I loved it. Of course, temps were much higher than my previous MSI GTX750Ti TF Gaming, but the performance was just as excellent!

Or at least add heat pipe(s). Hopefully zotac and kfa² follows shortly with their designs.

Now, GTX 1060 in LP version would be super nice. That's GTX 980 grade card, imagine that in a tiny case for a living room gaming...

Couple of manufacturers producing, DX12 will also in theory work around a lack of SLi support, but we will see.

But why dual slot?
They needed more than one slot to dissipate ~70w of heat?

I don't mean the heatsink. The bracket and ancient dvi. Ruins compatibility with cases that can fit dual slot coolers but have single slot bracket.

Profile refers to width not height, a single slot cooler does not make it low profile.

Profile refers to height, not width. This is the convention:

You are correct I flipped width and height, my point however is still correct. Single slot determines how many slots it takes up and profile refers to full height or half height cards.

Yes, no arguing with that.

What's the big deal with dual slot? Sapphire R7 250 was LP single slot and the card went to 70 C so much as to touch anything with 3D requirements. For me at least, dual slot is not a deal breaker.
