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

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 1050 Galax OC 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.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX 1050 Galax OC 2GB graphics card, when running 2019 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 209 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 Galax OC 2GB can run Death Stranding at 1080p and predict it will 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 FIFA 20 returns a strong 81 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Death Stranding to predict how the GeForce GTX 1050 Galax OC 2GB would deal with it. Our research revealed 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 FIFA 20 which was good with a 62 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Diablo 4 that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the GeForce GTX 1050 Galax OC 2GB is likely in need of some graphical option tweaks when trying to play modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 Galax OC 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 Galax OC 2GB in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the GeForce GTX 1050 Galax OC 2GB is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Galax OC 2GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 115% better and can run 897 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. 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 61% better and can run 685 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

GeForce GTX 1050 Galax OC 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


The Galax GeForce GTX 1050 OC is their slightly overclocked version of Nvidia's lower end graphics 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 a sing non stock fan cooler and a overclocked core.


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 1366MHz and goes up to 1468MHz 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


The GTX 1050 OC by Galax 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 52+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
The GTX 1050 OC will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 960.


System Suggestions


GeForce GTX 1050 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080 and this card is not much different, so our recommendation 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.

Seems to be the nVidia answer to my card The Sapphire Nitro RX460 4G D5 as they have the same exact performance!


However I would recommend the Sapphire Nitro RX 460 Card as it has shaders that can be unlocked which does lead to a performance increase of about 10-15% depending on the program used.


This puts the Sapphire Nitro RX460 at a performance win over The GTX 1050 Galax OC Card the GTX 1050 Wins on power consumption though and pulls a lot less electrical power.
