Check out all the GeForce GTX 1050, 1050 Ti cards that arrive later this month

geforce gtx 1050 cards asus gigabyte msi zotac dual ti
Now that Nvidia has officially let the GTX 1050 cat out of the bag, GeForce partners are flooding the news channels with hardware announcements. Some of these companies are offering just a few units while the likes of MSI and Gigabyte will have a truckload ready when Nvidia opens the retail doors on October 25.

Unfortunately, individual card pricing isn’t available. We do know, though, that the GTX 1050 will start at $109, and the GTX 1050 Ti cards will be at $139. The base version of cards from each maker should come close to or meet these price points, with beefier versions selling for between $10 to $30 more — if history is a useful guide.

Asus

Come October 25, Asus will have a load of GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti cards to offer spanning its Strix, Expedition, Dual, and Phoenix brands. According to the company, the Strix cards will come with overclocked models and provide quiet, stylish gaming. Meanwhile, the Expedition cards are built for non-stop gaming, the Dual cards are designed to match your system’s color theme, and the Phoenix cards aim at compact PC gaming systems. Here are the specs:

EVGA

evga1050

According to EVGA, its GTX 1050 Ti offerings are around 26 percent faster than a GTX 950 graphics card, while its vanilla GTX 1050 cards are 16 percent faster. All models come packed with support for the company’s PrecisionX OC technology, meaning these cards can be overclocked with the help of built-in automatic overclock tuning. A batch of cards also shipped with the ACX 3.0 cooling system to help stabilize overclocks and keep the cards generally chilled overall.

Gigabyte

gigabyte1050

Most of what Gigabyte offers on the GTX 1050/1050 Ti front uses the company’s Windforce 2X cooling system that uses two 90mm alternate-spinning fans sporting a unique blade design. Additionally, the G1 Gaming models have customizable RGB illumination, and effects that can be controlled through the company’s Xtreme Engine utility.

Inno3D

inno3d1050

This company is offering a two-fan model of the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti along with a one-fan version of each. Inno3D’s big selling point seems to be the four extra air-intake vents for increasing the speed of cool air onto the board’s cooler, keeping the graphics chip chilly. The fans also use iChiLL X3 Scythe blade fans that slice through the air for better cooling. lower noise, and less power consumption. The fans are built to stay running 24/7 without a hitch.

MSI

As expected, MSI will offer lots of cards when the official launch date rolls out later this month. There are ten in the overall GTX 1050/1050 Ti bundle, some of which will sport the company’s Twin Frozr VI cooling system. This system includes MSI’s patented Torx Fan technology that generates 22 percent more air pressure than the standard GPU cooling fan. The system also relies on Premium Thermal Compound X for added on-chip cooling.

Palit

palit1050

Both GTX 1050/1050 Ti solutions offered by Palit will come in one-fan form factors, even though the company’s announcement shows a two-fan 1050 Ti design as well. This latter version could arrive in the future after Palit pushes a number of one-fan cards out the door. Other than that, the company really doesn’t say what its two cards provide to make them stand out in the now-dense GTX 1050/1050 Ti crowd. We’re betting pricing will be their biggest selling point outside the Pascal chip’s capabilities.

Zotac

zotac1050

Last but not least is Zotac, who enters the GTX 1050/1050 Ti market with only three solutions. All models sport only one cooling fan, but take up two slots, while the two “mini” cards are only 5.8 inches long, perfect for compact PC gaming systems. As for the overclocked card, it relies on a cooling system that supposedly comprises of two 70mm radial fans (although the specs show a single fan) and two 6mm copper heatpipes crammed inside a 6-inch shroud.
