Like a phoenix rising from the ashes of the smoldering fire that is the GPU market in 2021, the NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti is officially returning from the dead as NVIDIA struggles to meet overwhelming demand.

Oh hell, no. There's nothing as exciting as the launch of a recycled product. :rolleyes:

If it's super cheap, then I might buy one to have a play with and to have a low end spare that doesn't take a lot of resources. Confession: I've actually already got a handful of low end cards and I really don't need more. I must resist...

Saw my local microcenter best listed available card a few days ago was a 1050ti that was listed for $215.

I can't imagine seeing these cards coming back out of retirement and costing this much.

A console has a power limitation. Plus it's hard to scale it.
Even if someone re-engineers an ordinary console for mining, they'd be a drop in the bucket(processing-power-wise) compared to proper mining operations. I'd bet all the consoles in the world couldn't replace a 1000-GPU mining farm.

Well this vid show that the 5700XT has a hashrate of 56MH/s at only 95watts and the PS5/XBSX have more powerful chips than the 5700XT, I would see that console are absolute win if mining were indeed possible on consoles.
And PS5/XBSX can pull 200+ Watts just fine.

I bought a used Quadro from one of the members here a few years ago and the driver had some interesting features. Stuff you don’t realise you’re missing until you see them.

I have a GTX 1050 Ti sitting on the shelf that I keep as my backup card. If the price is right, I'd buy one. It at least plays every game on the market still.

I guess nvidia and amd have been pumping crypto coins to clear out gpu's inventory otherwise would never be sold with insane prices like this, it would not sell at all and now look everybody wants them for 3x more expensive hehe

So, hangonaminute! You have one of these cards, yet you'd buy another for no good reason?

The qubit approvez. :cool:

the RTX 3 series cards are available, IF you know where to look ;) . the 1050ti is a capable card though. my nephew ran one for a long time & it did well, iirc it had 4Gbs Vram. not bad for a LP video card. the best part is it fits in the Dell optiplex SFF

Dude, you realize all the consoles, even just the next gen ones that were recently released, have sold millions of units already. Even if you only had 1% of all the processing power, if you take all of them, that would probably be wayyyy more than a 1000 gpu farm. They couldn't touch the 1000 gpu farm's efficiency though.

I'm dumbfounded.

So we get the 1050ti miner's get 1070/80 and you're fine with that?!.

Yeah, I like to keep a few low end ish cards on hand and I'm out of the GTX710-50 cards I had on hand.

I'm dumbfounded.

Not that I'm fine with it, just saying the 1050Ti isn't an absolute terrible card. Bringing back the 1060 3GB might have been nicer, but other than that what else do you want them to do?

They could bring back the 980Ti - it wasn't an ideal card for mining, pulled more power over the 980 and 970 and without a lot of tinkering to drop voltage you could get similar or better results from the 970/980 for mining Eth over the 980Ti. 980Ti is a great card for 1080p gaming still - you just don't get any of the fancy crap that Nvidia is pushing (ray tracing or DLSS).

At this point anything with more than 4GB of VRAM is going to get gobbled up by miners, they don't care if the GPU is great at mining or not.

We are in a GPU shortage, the 1050Ti die is tiny and that's important here. You can get 4 1050Ti dies from the same silicon space as one 980Ti die. So they can pump out the GPUs. Yeah, if someone is building a gaming rig the 1050Ti will just be a place holder until the market gets back to normal, but at least it is something.
