Gigabyte drops a gaggle of GeForce GTX 1050 cards

Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti graphics cards are getting a lot of attention here at The Tech Report today. Gigabyte is launching a whole fleet of cards based on the new GP107 GPUs.

All four of Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 1050 Ti cards offer variable amounts of GPU overclocking and sport 4GB of VRAM clocked at 7 GT/s on a 128-bit memory bus. The table below lists the Nvidia reference clocks, as well as the "OC Mode" GPU clocks for all four Gigabyte GTX 1050 Tis:

Card Base clock (MHz) Boost clock (MHz)
Nvidia reference GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 1290 1392
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti D5 4G 1316 1430
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC 4G 1341 1455
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Windforce OC 4G 1354 1468
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti G1 Gaming 4G 1392 1506

The D5 is Gigabyte's entry-level GTX 1050 Ti card. It comes with a conservatively-sized single-fan cooler and PCIe slot-only power delivery. The "OC" model adds a larger cooler with dual fans to go along with its increased clock speeds. Buyers will need a single six-pin PCIe power connector if they opt for the "Windforce OC" model, whose cooler still has two fans but is a little larger than the previous model's. The top-of-the-line "G1 Gaming" card has integrated RGB LED lighting to go along with its even-bigger cooler and the highest core clocks in the range. The Windforce OC and G1 Gaming cards add two additional HDMI 2.0 ports on top of the HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort, and dual-link DVI-D connectors present on the D5 and OC models.

Gigabyte also offers four models of GeForce GTX 1050 cards that apparently follow the same pattern as the company's GTX 1050 Tis with respect to features. The company has yet to share information on clock speeds for the GTX 1050s, though.

    Yet to share clocks for the 1050? It’s all listed already:

    Market segmentation at its finest. No matter how many chip variants NV releases, the AIB vendors will find a way to turn each of them into subvariant after subvariant until we reach the point where you have a different card at every dollar value between $50 and $1000

      No kidding. There should be one stock-clocked version and one OC version. A third version is allowed IFF the card’s TDP allows it to be made mITX size with 1 fan.

        Also, in order to give a card the “OC” moniker, it needs to have clocks at least 10% above stock. (aka, none of the 1050/1050Ti cards from Gigabyte, EVGA, MSI, or Zotac qualify)

      But each and every one of these is critical to the market!

        you left out the “do you want 6pin or not” version

          …and the waterblock version for custom loops, and the AIO watercooled version.
