GeForce GTX 1050 EVGA FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 2GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview


The GeForce GTX 1050 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 is EVGA's highest clocked GTX 1050, 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 features a higher core speed and EVGA's ACX 3.0 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 5 SM activated and thus 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1442MHz and goes up to 1556MHz 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 on a 6-pin power connector to power itself.


Performance


The GTX 1050 FTW Gaming 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 60+ 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 FTW Gaming ACX 3.0 by EVGA 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.
