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

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 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 quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 365 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing The Outer Worlds getting 29 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB, Need For Speed Heat getting 29 FPS and Microsoft Flight Simulator predicted to get 8 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at The Outer Worlds where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 58 FPS, Medium: 46 FPS, High: 31 FPS and Ultra: 22 FPS. We added Need For Speed Heat to our tests and saw it was weak with a 22 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Microsoft Flight Simulator leading us to predict 6 FPS at Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB running at 1440p is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB? A good choice when looking to upgrade the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB which meets 901 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 77% better performance. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 33% better performance and can run 694 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Zotac OC Edition 4GB is currently Zotac's highest overclocked version of the GTX 1050, one of Nvidia's lower end graphics card. It is competing against AMDs more affordable gaming cards, like the newer RX 470.


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 1392MHz and goes up to 1506MHz when the Boost Clock is triggered in game, staggering when you consider the reference's boost clock speed is 1392Mhz also.


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 the Nvidia GTX 1050 OC Edition ti to deliver around 62+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will be faster than the performance of the outgoing GTX 960


System Suggestions


Zotac's overclocked GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB 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.

According to testing by Techspot (https://www.techspot.com/review/1546-intel-2nd-gen-core-i7-vs-8th-gen/page5.html) not even sandybridge will bottleneck anything less than a 1070 so your ivybridge processor should be fine.

No need to be sorry :) Unfortunately your CPU will bottleneck GTX 1050 Ti in CPU hungry games like Dying Light while in GPU demanding games you should be fine (bf4, acu). I use GTX 950 (overclocked) and I noticed big difference after I upgraded from my A10-6800K (according to game debate it's only 10% faster than your CPU) to my 3570K. Still it looks like a good upgrade from you current GPU.
