How well can the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 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.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 191 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

A GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Cyberpunk 2077 on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on FIFA 20 which is 82 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Halo: Reach performs on this hardware, which gets a strong 86 FPS.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Cyberpunk 2077 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We then checked the performance on FIFA 20 to see if that runs well. It was good with a 62 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB is a reliable performer at this larger resolution for modern games. The graphics card will be good to run 1440p on Ultra or High settings.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB in your PC? We think this GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 116% better and can run 899 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 59% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 672 games from the most demanding games today.

GeForce GTX 1050 Gigabyte D5 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 D5 2GB edition is their small form factor 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. This card features a non stock fan and a overclocked core speed.


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 1379MHz and goes up to 1493MHz with the Boost Clock in OC mode.


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 D5 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.
Comparatively, this card will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 960.


System Suggestions


The GeForce GTX 1050 D5 by Gigabyte is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, 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.
