AMD has the lower- and mid-range GPU market tied with its Radeon RX 460 and RX 470 graphics cards, but NVIDIA is looking to enter the mid-range GPU game with its Pascal architecture in the purported GeForce GTX 1050.




Reports surfaced over the weekend of a GP107-powered GeForce GTX 1050, with its GPU featuring 768 CUDA cores, and 4GB of GDDR5 on a 128-bit memory bus with 112GB/sec memory bandwidth. It looks like the GPU will be clocked at 1316MHz with a boost clock of 1752MHz.


NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 1050 will reportedly have a TDP of just 75W, so we could expect GTX 1050s to arrive without an additional PCIe power connector. As for the price, considering the GeForce GTX 1060 is priced at $299 for the Founders Edition, the GTX 1050 will need to be priced at $150-$200 to better compete against the Polaris-based offerings from AMD.
