How well can the GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 200 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB can run Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Death Stranding is predicted to return a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to see how the GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at Death Stranding which we predict will be weak with a 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Diablo 4 that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB running at 1440p is not going to be able to maintain a playable game at this resolution.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which is 119% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 897 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 63% better and can run 685 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

GeForce GTX 1050 Zotac Mini 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


This is Zotac's small form factor version of the latest GTX 1050, a card designed to compete against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the RX 460 or RX 470 and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 960. It feature's reference core speeds but with a smaller size.


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 5 SM activated and thus 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1354MHz and goes up to 1455MHz with the Boost Clock.


Memory


The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 3504MHz which is outstanding.


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


Zotac's GTX 1050 Mini 2GB will enable mid level graphics performance on modern AAA 2016 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 50+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
The GTX 1050 will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 960.


System Suggestions


GeForce GTX 1050 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, so our reccomendation would be to use 1600x900 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i5-6500 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
