Barely two months after teasing PC gamers with its single-slot GTX 1070 graphics card, Galax has decided to first ‘officially’ unveil two brand new low-profile graphics cards for the mainstream PC market. Galax’s new graphics cards come in the form of a GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti, which interestingly seem to bear no ‘special’ names.
As expected, both the low-profile GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti by Galax come with the same design. Like most low-profile graphics cards released in the market recently, Galax’s new cards come with a cooler shroud that looks, well, average. But, this is to be expected with these kinds of graphics cards because they are marketed as practical components – instead of being flamboyant.
Those aside, being low-profile graphics cards means that both the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti by Galax will only require power from the motherboard itself. Speaking of power, Galax’s low profile GTX 1050 will ship with base and boost clock speeds of 1303MHz and 1417MHz respectively. Meanwhile, the more powerful GTX 1050 Ti will boast clock speeds of 1366MHz (base) and 1468MHz (boost).
Connectivity-wise, the low-profile GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards by Galax will be equipped with one HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI ports each. Official pricing was not mentioned by Galax, but according to TechPowerUp, the Galax GTX 1050 may come with a price tag of US$109 (about RM482), while the low-profile GTX 1050 Ti may most likely be priced at US$139 (around RM615).
