ZOTAC International, a global manufacturer of innovation, is pleased to change the playing field of graphics cards once more with a new member in ZOTAC GeForce GTX 10 Series. The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti series is the latest addition within the NVIDIA Pascal architecture, with superior performance that drives a new age of gaming experience.

The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Mini and 1050 Ti Mini are both super compact short length cards. Measuring at a length of 5.8 inches, it represents the smallest card in the Pascal family. Raw gaming power runs through the small builds while maintaining superior thermal performance and noise level. This is made possible with a single wide 90mm fan connected to an all-aluminum base with direct GPU contact.

Introducing the OC Edition - the next step up in gaming. Where there is headroom for improvement, there is room for more speed. The OC Edition steps up the clock speed while maintaining super compact. The increased power output is kept in control by the dual 70mm radial fans with two 6mm copper heatpipes. All the power and thermal performance are all contained within a 6-inch shroud. The OC Edition will be a part of the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Ti family.

The super compact Mini and OC Edition cards will fit in 99% of systems, making this the perfect upgrade for enthusiasts and users who are looking to roll into a new generation with a smaller build without need for additional PCIE power. Accompanying the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti series is Firestorm, the ZOTAC graphics card utility, redesigned with a new look and dotted with new improved features for a more user-friendly experience.

I just ordered a Zotac 1050 Ti OC version for my budget machine as it is the fastest card right now that uses only 75W of power. I normally buy only AMD cards, but the performance of this card is so much better than even the fastest RX 460, which is all AMD has that draws 75W or less. AMD is going to have to come out with a 75W card to match it or they will lose the low end of the market entirely as the 460 isn't going to cut it.
