Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown System Requirements and Performance Revealed

In a continued effort to support the PC platform, BANDAI NAMCO previously announced they would be releasing Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown on PC. At the time, there was no mention of what the game's system requirements would be. However, thanks to an NVIDIA blog post, we now know not only the game's system requirements but an estimate on system performance as well- at least with their own graphics solutions.

Overall, the minimum and recommended requirements appear to be quite reasonable. BANDAI NAMCO even went so far as to make note that the recommended requirements are representative of what is needed to run the game at the 1920x1080 resolution with max settings. NVIDIA's own testing backs up those claims with the GeForce GTX 1060 offering a comfortable 100 FPS at 1920x1080, and 60 FPS at 2560x1440 resolutions. Meanwhile, those wanting to push the game at 4K will need a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or better which should offer a steady 60+ FPS.

NVIDIA Releases GeForce 399.07 WHQL Driver

NVIDIA debuted its R399 series of GeForce software, which could be its final sequence before GeForce RTX family of graphics cards are released to market, likely accompanied by a new series of GeForce software (likely R400 series?). Version 399.07 WHQL is "Game Ready" for "Battlefield V Open Beta," F1 2018, "Immortal: Unchained," Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, "Strange Brigade," and "Switchblade." The drivers also add SLI profiles for F1 2018 and "Immortal: Unchained."

GeForce 399.07 WHQL addresses a number of bugs, including blurry screen noticed on "Rainbow Six: Siege" with TAA dialed up to 100%; diagonal screen-tearing on notebooks with MSHybrid; incorrect OpenGL rendering context on GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1070; missing textures in "Doom" (2016) with the Vulkan renderer; random BSODs on Oculus VR software; stability issues with "LA Noire VR," and stuttering in some exotic configurations on "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4." A key bug with G-Sync stuttering on machines upgrading to Windows 10 1803 has also been fixed. Grab the driver from the link below.

It's a Stock Clearance: NVIDIA Launches Graphics Card Bundle with Free Kingston SSD

NVIDIA, via its UK storefront, has launched new graphics card bundles - bundles that come with a free Kingston SSD. The offer doesn't stretch through the entirety of the lineup, and is restricted to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and 1060 - likely the top volume offerings NVIDIA has right now. The offered SSDs are all part of Kingston's A400 value lineup, and the offered capacities range from 120 GB (in the majority of the models) through to 240 GB.

The small capacity SSDs being bundled with these mid range graphics cards also makes sense due to the market these are usually aimed at: casual, price/performance, budget customers, who may not have the funds to spare on an SSD upgrade. So while NVIDIA helps move some more graphics card units (maybe for an eventual, hypothetical, upcoming next-gen 1100 series release?), it only offers SSDs to the market that is more likely to require them for their systems.

EVGA Introduces Its GeForce GTX 1050 3 GB Graphics Cards

EVGA announced the market availability of a "vanilla" GTX 1050 3 GB graphics card (the Gaming 03G) and its SuperClocked variant (the SC Gaming 03G). They both carry the same 768 CUDA cores. Clocks for the Gaming 03G are NVIDIA reference (1392 MHz base, up to 1518 MHz boost, 3 GB of 7008 MHz GDDR5 memory across a 96-bit memory bus), and the SuperClocked version brings the core clocks up to 1455MHz and 1569MHz (base and boost, respectively).

The graphics cards come in a short form factor (144.78mm x 111.15mm) - a simple, single-fan cooling solution is more than enough to cool down the GPU, which only needs PCIe power to function correctly. Display outputs are set at 1x dual-link DVI-D, 1x DisplayPort 1.4, and 1x HDMI 2.0. The Gaming 03G version is available for $159.99, while the SuperClocked version comes in at $169.99. Both feature a three-year warranty.

Shuttle Introduces DH02U 1.3-liter Mini-PC with GeForce GTX 1050

Shuttle's product family of 1.3-liter PCs has a powerful new addition. As the first model in this format, the DH02U no longer relies solely on the graphics performance which is determined by the soldered-on processor. For the first time, the latter is supported by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics chip with 4 GB of memory. This means that the DH02U is fast enough for fluent 3D visualization and to operate, via HDMI 2.0b, four high-resolution monitors in 4K at 60 Hz.
  • Suitable for ambient temperatures of up to 50 °C
  • Support for up to four 4K monitors
  • Available in two versions: with Intel Celeron or Intel Core i5 processor

Gigabyte Announces Availability of Two New, Smaller NVIDIA GTX 1050 3 GB Graphics Cards

Gigabyte has announced two new SKUs that join their previous interpretation of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1050 3 GB graphics card. Adding (or maybe subtracting, on account of it being smaller) to their lineup is the new GTX 1050 3 GB D5, which features a shorter PCB (172 mm x 113 mm x 30 mm, minus 19 mm) when compared to the original 3 GB OC model (for reference, 191 mm long, 111 mm wide, and 36 mm in height). The reduced footprint of the graphics card means there's now a single fan (now at 90 mm instead of 2x 80 mm) at work on cooling the GPU - but it's such a lean one that that factor should pose no problem. Additionally, the clocks are slightly lower on this card, and adhere to NVIDIA's reference of 1392 MHz base and 1518 MHz boost. Connectivity-wise, there's 1x DVI-D, 1x HDMI 2.0b and 1x DisplayPort 1.4 port (up to three simultaneous displays are supported).

The other, more interesting model, is the GTX 1050 OC Low Profile 3G. Like the name implies, this is a low-profile graphics card, best suited for space-starved enclosures. Coming in at 167mm x 68.9mm x 37mm, it's as small as this type of card has ever been in Gigabyte's lineup. The low profile version should feature higher performance than the D5 one, since it clocks in at 1404 MHz (1544 MHz boost clock) in the default Game Mode. OC Mode brings the graphics card's clocks to 1430 MHz and 1569 MHz respectively. Likely owing to an expected HTPC usage for these graphics cards, Gigabyte has added an extra HDMI 2.0 port to this card, bringing connectivity to 1x DVI-D, 2x HDMI 2.0b, and 1x DisplayPort 1.4 port.

The ZenBook 15 Pro with ScreenPad also features ASUS' ultra-slim NanoEdge bezels for an immersive 83% screen-to-body ratio.

Gigabyte Introduces Their GeForce GTX 1050 3GB OC Video Card

We've come from rumors through somewhat disappointing listed specs on NVIDIA's latest GPU, and now, there's an actual AIB product hitting store shelves. Gigabyte seems to be the first NVIDIA partner out of the gates with their own version of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1050 3 GB video card - a card that's a murder of its original specs and has nonetheless generated more than its fair share of buzz among the tech crowds.

Whether or not performance is severely hampered by the 96-bit bus width of the new NVIDIA graphics card remains to be seen (it can't be good for performance though, now can it?) And even as NVIDIA increased core count and clockspeeds to compensate for the severe lack of memory bandwidth already, Gigabyte, naturally, introduced a small OC to their own version of the graphics card, allowing it to boost up to 1582 MHz (1417 MHz base, and 1556 MHz boost in gaming mode, 1442 MHz base, up to 1582 MHz boost in OC Mode. Gigabyte employs its Windforce 2X cooler with 2x 80 mm fans to keep the card cool and allow maximum boost capability. Connectivity-wise, there's 1x DVI-D, 1x HDMI 2.0b and 1x DisplayPort 1.4 port (up to three simultaneous displays are supported).

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 3GB Memory Bus-width Confirmed: A Major Trade-off

NVIDIA's entry-level GeForce GTX 1050 launched in a new 3 GB variant, earlier this month, with 50 percent more memory than the 2 GB which the original GTX 1050 launched with. But there's a major catch that's relegated to the fine-print of the card's specifications on NVIDIA website, and something most NVIDIA AIC (add-in-card) partners won't particularly blare on their product packaging anywhere near as loudly as the memory amount, and that's memory bus width. The 3 GB GTX 1050 has 50 percent more memory than the original GTX 1050, but a 25% narrower memory bus, at just 96-bit.

When you look at a GTX 1050 3 GB graphics card PCB, you'll likely only find three 8 Gb (1 GB) memory chips, with one set of memory chip traces blanked out. It's not even like NVIDIA compensated for the narrower memory bus with higher memory clocks. The chips run at the same 7 Gbps as the original's, yielding just 84 GB/s memory bandwidth, compared to the original's 112 GB/s. The CUDA core count of the GTX 1050 3 GB is the same as the GTX 1050 Ti, with 768 CUDA cores, which twitch their thumbs as data is moved between the GPU and memory over Pony Express. Besides more CUDA cores, the GPU clocks are marginally higher, with 1392 MHz base and 1518 MHz GPU Boost, compared to 1354/1455 MHz of the original. NVIDIA, which recently sermonized the industry on "making products easier for consumers to identify" with its stillborn GPP, is once again caught concealing a major specification. To find it, you'll need to visit the product page of the GTX 1050, scroll all the way down to the specs sheet, and click on "view full specs" to reveal the memory bus width.

NVIDIA Allegedly Working on GeForce GTX 1050 with 3GB Memory

According to a rumor originated from Chinese media Expreview, NVIDIA is preparing a brand-new variant of the GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card with 3GB of onboard memory. The additional memory could potentially increase the graphics card's performance in certain situations. However, Expreview speculates that NVIDIA might actually reduce the memory bus to 96 bits instead of maintaining the 128-bit bus. If this was to happen, actual performance on the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB might be even worse than the normal variant. Now, only time will tell if the rumors are true. If the 3GB variant does make it to the shelves, it would probably be exclusive to the Chinese market like the GeForce GTX 1060 with 5GB memory.
