We've reported recently on a wave of low-profile graphics cards based on the latest generations of chips from both Nvidia and AMD. Inno3D's informatively-named GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (1-Slot Edition) is the first GP107-based card we've seen so far with a single-slot cooler, though.
The skinny-mini GTX 1050 Ti has the expected complement of 768 stream processors running at Nvidia's reference 1290 MHz base clock and 1392 Mhz-ish boost clock. The memory is the desktop loadout of 4 GB of 7 GT/s GDDR5 RAM accessed over a 128-bit bus. The single-slot design means Inno3D's slim card has fewer display connections than some competing GTX 1050 Ti models. It makes do with a single HDMI 2.0 jack, a DisplayPort, and a DVI-D connector.
The slim card should fit in just about any desktop PC with a full-size PCIe 16x slot and takes in all its power through the slot connection. Inno3D's card is 8.3" (21 cm), though judging from the pictures, the PCB is a good bit shorter than that.
There's no pricing or availability information, but given the pricing trends among similar low-profile graphics cards, we expect Inno3D's GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (1-Slot Edition) to bear a small price premium compared to full-height, dual-slot cards. You can find GeForce 1050 Tis around the $135 mark these days, so Inno3D's single-slot take shouldn't stray too much from that amount.
