Nvidia is said to be coming out with new graphics cards based on the Pascal structure. These new graphics cards follow the line Nvidia started with the GTX 1080 last May and continues on to the latest GTX 1060. Rumors say that the next graphics cards in line are the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti.
The two new graphics cards are said to be coming out this October, as reported earlier. Of the two graphics cards, the GTX 1050 Ti has better specs. Based on the specs that have been leaked, the two graphics cards would be more for budget and casual gamers.
According to WCCFTech, the GTX 1050 Ti won't have any power connectors. The GTX 1050 Ti together with the GTX 1050 would only use 75W of power to run it, which means they don't need to draw power from the computer's power supply.
The GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 would be enough to run games that don't require too much of the GPU settings being too high. That means they will cater well to MoBAs, casual games and the like, as Christian Today reports. They could also run triple A games for as long as the settings aren't set too high.
VRAM are both modest, with the GTX 1050 Ti being a bit higher at 4 GB using DDR5. The GTX 1050 uses 2GB DDR5 for its VRAM. Their pricing also reflects their target market, with the GTX 1050 Ti said to sell at $149 while the GTX 1050 would be at $119. Prices though are not final and might still change before or after launch.
With the coming of the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 Nvidia will have covered the whole range of gamers, starting from the hardcore gamers who would go for the GTX 1080 down to casual gamers with the GTX 1050 and everyone else in-between. With the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1060, Nvidia would cover gamers who would want to have their games perform very well but could not or would not shell out the price for the GTX 1080.
