Todays most popular game is Cyberpunk 2077, which provides a good performance benchmark for this PC’s hardware. In summary, you should avoid trying to play Cyberpunk 2077 with the GeForce GTX 1050 Gainward 2GB

2nd most popular game: Microsoft Flight Simulator - To summarise, you may be toying with the idea that a 1440p resolution could be achieved with this GeForce GTX 1050 Gainward 2GB graphics card, but in so doing you would have to drop the graphics settings to pretty Low according to our assessment. But let the Microsoft Flight Simulator frame rate numbers decide and guide. 1080p Medium 47 FPS, 1080p High setting: 32 FPS, 1080p Ultra setting: 23 FPS, 1440p Low setting: 45 FPS, 1440p Medium setting: 36 FPS. Our Low vs Ultra analysis tells us that you would be better placed running this at 1080p, but at least you could still tinker with graphics settings for 1440p to perhaps be passable?

3rd most popular game: Marvel's Avengers - In summary, here we are looking at a GPU that can only really run Marvel's Avengers at small laptop size screen resolutions. As for graphics settings, low vs ultra, we suggest around Medium to high at best for the GeForce GTX 1050 Gainward 2GB.
