How well can the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 346 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from The Outer Worlds with 24 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Need For Speed Heat which returns a weak 24 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Cyberpunk 2077 which we predict will get a weak 1 FPS.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB by playing The Outer Worlds which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 47FPS, M: 37FPS, H: 25FPS, U: 18FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Need For Speed Heat and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 18 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Cyberpunk 2077 which is predicted to get weak results with a 0FPS on Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB is the wrong choice for PC gaming.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB in your PC? This GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB as this is better than 901 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 91% better performance as well. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which meets 694 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 43% better performance.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti MSI 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
This is effectively MSI's reference GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470. It features a single fan cooling system.


Architecture
The Pascal Architecture aims for twice as much performance as the Maxwell Architecture and introduces support for second gen HBM.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GP107-400 which has 6 SM activated and 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1291MHz and goes up to 1392MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 3504MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.


Performance
This card will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect it to deliver around 55+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
This card will be ever so slightly faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960


System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti by MSI is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a modern CPU like the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for minimal system bottleneck.
