GeForce GTX 1050 cards are slowly rolling out, so we took a peek at the prices

Bill Roberson/Digital Trends
With the GeForce GTX 1050 cards launch, we’ve trolled the internet to find out who is selling the cards, and for how much. Keep in mind that the starting MSRP of the GTX 1050 is $110 whereas the GTX 1050 Ti model has a starting MSRP of $140. What you’ll see is cards provided by Nvidia’s partners that tack on more features and performance than the company’s reference design, jacking up the price.

Right now, the GTX 1050/1050 Ti pickings are slim. We scanned the likes of Amazon, TigerDirect, Overstock, Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics, and more to find absolutely nothing. However, we did find Newegg with a huge heaping of GTX 1050/1050 Ti cards followed by B&H Photo and NCIX. Many listings are available now while others offer a pre-order option or are shown as “out of stock.”

Here’s what we found so far, and the strange price differences between the three online vendors:

This, of course, doesn’t represent the entire flow of GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti cards hitting the market. We already know Asus has two units, EVGA offers 10 units, Gigabyte offers eight units, Inno3D has two, MSI has 10, Palit has two, and Zotac has three. There are more Nvidia partners out there offering GTX 1050 solutions as well, such as Biostar, Colorful, Manli, and a few others.

The GTX 1050 cards are Nvidia’s direct shot at AMD’s Radeon RX 400 Series of graphics cards targeting the general consumer. They’re at the bottom of Nvidia’s “Pascal” totem pole, and follows the GTX 1060, the GTX 1070, and the flagship GTX 1080. Technically, the revamped Titan X sits at the top of the pole despite it lacking a 10 Series label, waving hits $1,200 price tag around like a massive flag.
