Performance results for Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti hit the wires today, but we didn't manage to get our hands on either of those cards before the embargo lifted. Happily, EVGA surprised us with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti this evening. The company sent along one of its GTX 1050 Ti Superclocked cards for us to put through its paces, and we'll be getting it in our test rig ASAP.
The GTX 1050 Ti SC needs nothing but slot power to do its thing, and it's just 5.7" (14.5 cm) long, making it a seemingly perfect candidate for drop-in gaming duty in that prebuilt HP or Dell productivity machine that might be lying under the desk at home. Even with the GTX 1050 Ti's 75W thermal envelope, EVGA found room to push this GP107 chip to 1354 MHz base and 1468 MHz boost speeds, up from Nvidia's reference 1290 MHz base and 1392 MHz boost figures. We're eager to see how this mighty mite performs.
