MSI GTX 1050 Ti is powered by a full Pascal GP107 GPU. The GP107 is the first GPU built with the 14nm process (Samsung) and packs 768 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs and 48 textures units.
The reference clock speeds of the GPU are: 1290MHz for the base clock and 1392MHz for the boost clock. MSI’s GTX 1050 Ti comes with three modes for the GPU clock speeds: Silent mode (base: 1290MHz, boost: 1392MHz), Gaming mode (base: 1303MHz, boost: 1417MHz) and OC mode (base: 1316MHz, boost: 1430MHz).
The TDP of the GTX 1050 Ti reference board is 75W and does not require an additional power connector. However a 6-pin power connector is present on MSI’s board because the TDP can exceed 75W (Gaming or OC mode).
- 1290 MHz Core - Boostable up to 1493 MHz
- 768 CUDA Cores
- Pascal Architecture
- 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM
- 7.108 Gbps Memory Speed
- 128-Bit Memory Interface
- DisplayPort 1.4 | HDMI 2.0b | DVI-D DL
- 7680 x 4320 Max Digital Resolution
- TWIN FROZR VI Cooler
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There is one DisplayPort 1.4 output, one HDMI 2.0b output, and one DVI-D Dual-Link output. The GTX 1050 Ti is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 768 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.
- NVIDIA Ansel
- With Ansel, gamers can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can capture screenshots at up to 32 times the screen resolution, and then zoom in where they choose without losing fidelity. With photo-filters, they can add effects in real-time before taking the shot. And they can capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing in a VR headset or Google Cardboard.
- With CUDA, NVIDIA allows applications to hand off CPU-intensive tasks to the GPU. Your GPU is no longer just used for rendering graphics, but it can provide teraflops of floating point performance and accelerate application tasks, from real-time video rendering to fluid dynamics simulation. CUDA is used in many applications and games.
- G-SYNC Ready
- When used with a monitor that has G-SYNC hardware installed, the monitor's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-SYNC is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
- NVIDIA GPU Boost 3.0
- Boosts the card's clock speed in real-time based on the target temperature. If the card is running below the set target temperature, GPU Boost 3.0 will increase the clock speed to improve performance. The target temperature can be reset depending on your preference so you can have the card run more quietly for everyday tasks and older games, and run at full tilt during intense high-resolution gaming sequences.
In its reference form, GTX 1050 Ti operates at a base clock of 1290MHz, with a boost frequency of 1392MHz. The four Gigabytes of GDDR5 memory are clocked at 1752MHz, or 7Gbps effective, and access a 128-bit bus. No 2GB or 8GB variants exist. And that’s a good thing as 2GB would present an imbalance against the underlying GPU horsepower, while 8GB would be a waste. The higher-priced 3GB GTX 1060 is looking a little red-faced, at least when it comes to VRAM capacity.
Our closer look at the I/O does in fact confirm what was outlined in the specifications above. We see a single of each: (From L to R) DisplayPort, HDMI, and DL-DVI-D supporting up to three monitors and 7680 x 4320 resolution.
Power delivery to the 75W card could, and does on other models, come from only the PCIe slot. However MSI gave its card a 6-Pin PCIe power connection (150W can go to the card) to help with overclocking stability.
A single 6-pin PCIe power connector is used in an attempt to enhance the card’s overclocking capacity. I don’t see this as a major negative, given that the GPU’s 75W TDP is effectively the maximum that a PCIe slot can deliver. So even just a touch more power going through the 6-pin PCIe connector may serve as much-required boost for overclocking.
That said, the power connector does condense the target audience in a swift manner. Those gamers who are looking to upgrade their off-the-shelf Dell or HP PC are unlikely to have any form of PCIe power connector spare. If that’s the case, then choosing a different card is the most effective option.
