Images of Nvidia’s GTX 1050 Ti PCB along with its Pascal GP107 GPU have managed to find their way onto the internet. Interestingly, the leaked images were uploaded by an unknown source to imgur; but according to VideoCardz, the leak may have originated from Baidu. In addition, a GPU-Z screenshot of the graphics card has also been leaked.
Based on the leaked images, one can clearly see that the Pascal GP107 GPU inside the GTX 1050 Ti is much smaller than that of the GP106 GPU, which is used with Nvidia’s more powerful GTX 1060 graphics card. This may indicate the fact that this would be Nvidia’s first graphics card to be using Samsung’s 14nm process technology.
Besides that, the GTX 1050 Ti’s PCB seems to be equipped with a 6-pin power connector. This, however, may have been included simply to increase overclocking headroom. According to the folks at TechPowerUp, Nvidia’s upcoming graphics card may have a TDP rating of 75W, which is enough for it to be powered by the PCIe slot alone.
Meanwhile, the leaked GPU-Z screenshot shows that the GTX 1050 Ti may come with a 4GB framebuffer. The Pascal GP107 GPU inside it will most likely boast a base and boost GPU clock speed of 1291MHz and 1392MHz respectively. It’s worth mentioning that these may not be the stock clock speeds that’ll come with the ‘reference’ graphics card from Nvidia. Performance-wise, 3DMark 11 results for the GTX 1050 Ti was also uncovered – it had higher scores compared to the GTX 960.
Regardless, previous rumours mentioned that the GTX 1050 Ti will likely be unveiled sometime this month; with more and more rumours surfacing regarding this graphics card, it wouldn’t be impossible for us to see this graphics card very soon. More importantly, it’ll be interesting to see how the GTX 1050 Ti will stack against the likes of the Radeon RX 470 and RX 460.
