NVIDIA has unveiled its latest mobile graphics chip, the GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile. Based on the GP107 GPU, this new chip is designed a great gaming experience performance in a laptop design and should be able to handle even the toughest of games with ease.
The GeForce GTX 1050 comes with NVIDIA’s new Pascal architecture, which promises improved performance and power efficiency over previous-generation chips. This makes it suitable for gamers who want great graphics performance without sacrificing portability.
The GeForce GTX 1050 is a second generation graphics processing unit (GPU) designed to tackle a variety of applications, including flight simulators, workstations, and DAWs.
This glass-bodied graphics card has been specifically developed for a 15.6-inch style of laptop weighing between 5.1-6.6 lbs and it can last up to 20 hours on a single charge. NVIDIA are promoting the 1050’s high performance but Earth-friendly materials which include 72 ounces of the paper used should you recycle it.
However, it is still based on a 28nm die shrink so it does leak more energy, and has a lower efficiency rating. After all, on a device using full HD, virtual 3D, graphical editing and ray tracing, the GeForce GTX 10 series GPU uses over 80W for a maximum of 3-4 hours of intensive use.
3. Whose Behind the GT 1060 Mobile?
It is based on the Pascal architecture and the chip is said to consist of three different sub-blocks.
GeForce Titan X, a chip launched in 2014, included GP104 and GP107.
GeForce GTX 980 has also a GP110 chip.
The GeForce GTX 1050 comes with two GP104 PUs which are clocked at 1266 MHz and 1044 MHz.
The GP107 and GP116 are between 612 MHz and 940 MHz.
The reason why I say it is because a 1070 is priced at 3900 yen and 1050 is in the region of 1800 for their parallel. Missing EKGA which I think in this case is quite sensible – that’s purely unnecessary and expensive.
If the rumors around today are confirmed a 1070 will retail at the same price as 1050 and better.
4. How Does GeForce GT 1060 Mobile Compare to GeForce GTX 1050?
The last time NVIDIA unveiled a mobile GeForce, GeForce GTX 960M, it was quite a surprise as it boasted the “mobile equivalent of a GeForce GTX Titan”…so the GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile is a pretty big step down, right?
The GP107 GPU in this latest mobile chip is actually a cut down version of the GP104 mobile chip: just seven SMMs and 256 CUDA cores to go around, so while it features the same Maxwell architecture found in the more powerful GeForce GTX 1060 mobile card, this will not deliver the same graphics power as the desktop versions.
The GPU claims Similar TFLOPs performance, meaning it will not be Much better than before than the GeForce GTX 1050, but given what we’ve seen out of Geforce GTX 1050, you might say that’s not really a lot of difference. Keep an eye on PCPer to see if any benchmarks start to pop up.
The downside is that this will not be an overclocking-ready card, with Temperatures that could be significant issues, so check out GPU expertise is extensive gameplay testing which benchmarks these cards in detail. Both of these cards can handle in-game No matter what you do, perform well to play a shooter like Overwatch, or a card-based RPG like The Witcher
5. Which is Right for You?
Even though you may have heard that choosing a CPU for your system will make no difference on which games you can play, you won’t be 100% right. This is because you need to Upgraded version of graphics card at the same time Upgraded version of CPU.
If you ask a game to use 30% of your system CPU, then a graphics card needs to be installed with Approximately the same power 75% of your processor’s maximum clock speed. So I would recommend getting a graphics card that supports the models you want to play with.
In the same way, you know that one really hot CPU will overclock easily to almost three times over the recommended speed. This means a low-powered graphics card will only go at 30% of its maximum capability.
