NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti Set For October Release; First Look At Its GP107 Core

Nvidia continues to roll out graphics cards for its Pascal-architecture line. The GTX 1080 and the graphics cards following it have been successful and now Nvidia is set to come out with the latest graphics card in the line yet. It is speculated that the next Nvidia graphics cards in line are the GTX 1050 and the GTX 1050 Ti.

There has been much speculation about the coming Nvidia graphics cards and much has been added to it with alleged photos of the GTX 1050 Ti's hardware going online. According to PC Gamer photos of the GTX 1050 Ti have been shown with its hardware exposed. That means some parts such as the fan assembly and heat sink have been removed to show what is inside it.

The photos reveal that the GTX 1050 Ti has a GP107 core. This one though is said to be smaller than that used in the GTX 1060. It has a 4 GB DDR5 VRAM as well. As Mobipicker reports the GP107 core would be made using Samsung's 14 nm process. This would then be the first Nvidia cards using this process. AMD has already been using this process with its Polaris graphics cards.

An earlier iTechPost report speculated that the GTX 1050 Ti along with the GTX 1050 won't have a power connector, though the alleged photos seem to indicate that it has a 6-pin power connector. The report states that the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti will only consume 75 W, making a power connector unnecessary. With the photos allegedly showing that it has a power connector, it is likely that it will consume more than 75W, though that is not certain yet.

Prices for the new cards would be $149 for the GTX 1050 Ti and $119 for the GTX 1050. As with any speculation, specs and prices might still change. Even with photos coming out, nothing is certain until the new graphics cards come out. It is rumored that the GTX 1050 Ti would have its release on October 18.
