We reported the key specifications of Nvidia’s upcoming GTX 1050 graphics card a few weeks ago. Interestingly, new rumours have surfaced regarding another ‘soon to be released’ Pascal-based graphics called called the GTX 1050 Ti.
Unike the GTX 1050, Nvidia’s GTX 1050 Ti is said to be equipped with the Pascal GP107-400 GPU. Of course, being a ‘Ti’ graphics card means that it’ll come with better specifications compared to the non-Ti variant. The folks at Benchlife have managed to get updated specifications of both the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti and they turn out to be quite interesting.
“Nvidia is probably looking to replace the GTX 750 Ti with the GTX 1050 Ti”
Based on the findings, the GTX 1050 Ti will come with 786 CUDA cores, which is about 140 more compared to the GTX 1050. In addition, the GTX 1050 Ti is also slated to come with a VRAM capacity of 4GB (the GTX 1050 will come with 2GB instead). There is, however, one rather odd detail about the GTX 1050 Ti.
Rumoured specifications of the GTX 1050 Ti indicate that it will boast lower clock speeds compared to the GTX 1050. To be more specific, the GTX 1050 Ti is said feature base and boost clock speeds of 1290MHz and 1382MHz respectively. Meanwhile, the GTX 1050 is expected to come with base and boost clock speeds of 1354MHz and 1455MHz.
Nvidia is expected to announce both graphics cards in October; the GTX 1050 Ti will be first variant to be released of the two. Regardless, this is still a rumour and nothing is as of yet confirmed.
