GTX 1050 Will Boast GTX 770-Like Performance For Under $140

Looking to make a budget PC? If so, you might want to wait another week and see if Nvidia's upcoming product is what you're looking for.

VideoCardz has leaked the final specs for Nvidia's upcoming 10-series budget line. As usual, it will come in two flavors, the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti. Although this level of card is usually not one to raise attention, the performance of these two cards is beyond what many expected.

The specs are as follows:


GeForce GTX 1050

640 CUDA Cores

2GB G5


​October 25th


GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

768 CUDA Cores

4GB G5


​october 25th


The generational leap of the 10-series architecture  has resulted in the 1050 equating to roughly an overclocked GTX 770, which was a $340 card only four years ago. Due to this, the GTX 1050 will be a good low-cost option for gamers, especially those who prioritize console gaming but would like to gain access to PC exclusive titles without breaking the bank.

It is confirmed that Asus, EVGA, Galax, Gigabyte, Colorful, Inno3D, MSI, Palit, and Zotac will all offer variations of the GTX 1050, some using reference designs.
