Nvidia unveils GeForce GTX 1050 – powerful budget graphics card

Nvidia has added two new gaming graphics cards to its product range, the GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti.

The 1050 will start at $109, while the Ti version will start at $139.

Nvidia said both cards will let gamers play their favourite titles at a “smooth 60 frames-per-second”.

The cards are built on the same Pascal architecture as the “most advanced GPUs in the world”, said Nvidia, and feature 128-bit memory interface width.

A feature of the cards Nvidia highlighted was that neither require an external power connector, and both draw 75 watts of power.

1050 and 1050 Ti custom boards will be available from Asus, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, iGame, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac.

The GTX 1050 Ti will be available on 25 October, while the GTX 1050 will be available on or before 8 November.
