 Why buy a GTX 1050?

The only reason you are reading this review is either to know how “low” performance can be expected from a GTX 1050 or you are in a situation where you need the newest-yet-cheapest graphic card you can buy. With currently available games on low to a certain mid-end setting with certain games, you will get adequate performance. Anything more and you’ll regret the purchase. When you move from low-end to mid-end, the amount of performance and features you get for the money is higher than you’ll see with a higher mid-end to high-end graphic cards.

Better alternatives?

Save and consider a GTX 1060 or an AMD Radeon RX 480. I rather wait for a couple of months to save up on money and buy something that will provide me a better performance over this. If you buy a GTX 1050/GTX 1050 Ti, keep your expectations real. If you’re in a soup, then maybe a GTX 1050 Ti.

At some point, people may want to see a GeForce xx60-class graphic card whose reference version does not take additional power from an auxiliary connector. I am really keen to see how this card performance against’s Kaby Lake on-chip graphic offerings. But that’s just for personal satisfaction.

About the MSI GTX 1050 OC 2G…

As for the card, it’s as vanilla as it can possibly get. There is a minor overclock, but MSI should have a thermal pad for the VRAMs and sink for the VRMs.

  • Small footprint
  • Minor OC
  • GP107’s limited performance
  • No thermal pad. No VRM sink
