Gigabyte has unveiled its iteration of a low profile GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards. Aptly dubbed the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 OC Low Profile 2G and GTX 1050 Ti OC Low Profile 4G, Gigabyte’s newest graphics cards aim to supercharge dusty old PCs into something that can handle newer games at considerable framerates.
As expected, the least powerful graphics card amongst the two would be the Gigabyte GTX 1050 OC Low Profile 2G. It comes with a VRAM capacity of 2GB along with a CUDA core count of 640. Speed-wise, Gigabyte’s adorable graphics card has boost and base clock speeds of 1366MHz and 1468MHz respectively using the ‘Gaming Mode’ preset. Of course, clock speeds are slightly higher with the ‘OC Mode’ preset: 1392MHz (base) and 1506MHz (boost).Next up is the Gigabyte GTX 1050 Ti OC Low Profile 4G, which comes with slightly better specifications. Memory capacity and CUDA core count of this graphics card is higher at 4GB and 768 respectively. That said, its ‘OC Mode’ clock speeds of 1328MHz (base) and 1442 MHz (boost) is lower compared to the GTX 1050 OC Low Profile 2G.
Those aside, when it comes to design, both graphics cards are identical to each other. Like MSI, Gigabyte too has gone with the matte black colour scheme for both of its newest graphics cards. In addition, both come with the same measurements as well: 16.7cm x 6.9cm, 3.7cm. Each graphics card are also fitted with two HDMI ports along with one DisplayPort and DVI-D ports.Unfortunately, pricing and date of availability for the GTX 1050 OC Low Profile 2G and GTX 1050 Ti OC Low Profile 4G graphics cards was not mentioned by Gigabyte.
