i m getting gtx 1050Ti 4gb Inno3d tomorrow getting it for cheap rate. Currently, i have been running Gtx570 HD since 4 years lol i think i should get immense performance boost on major tittles of games Will keep it for one more year till i can afford Gtx1060 6gb Right now, my gtx570HD is failing in Assassins Creed Unity n few more games. Batman arkham city is giving me 30fps which is decent though
I'm running the 1050 ti and have managed a steady 1822mhz overclock on air. This card is a beast when it comes to 1080p gaming. If only my CPU (A10 6800k) could keep up :\
Weirdly, looking at the 1050 vs the 960, the 1050 loses in benchmarks, but wins handily in actual games. Is that because the games have more going on in the backend?
if the 960 becomes extremely cheap... SLI
Not at all just save up the extra money and get a 1060 or rx 480 or better you will be kicking your self after the purchase if you buy the 1050ti tbh.
I have a Radeon R7 265 2GB videocard (which is essencialy a HD 7850 2GB rebranded, but with slightly higher clock speeds). Do you recommend upgrading to 1050Ti 4GB?
geezus dude, for more 10$ you get he better card for this price, go for rx 470 ftw!!
No, get RX 470 instead. Much better p/p.
hmm, maybe i should sell my gtx 950 ssc asap... then spend some more money for this card... gtx 1050ti, 4 GB vram... not bad. unlike the gtx 970, 1050ti actually has 4GB vram available. plus it's the same cost compared to an RX-460 2GB. honestly, only upgrade to this card if you are on a strict budget, and you currently have a low profile gpu. Otherwise, all you get is a power conserving gpu. although you can't go wrong with a zotac mini version of the gtx 1050ti. like if you are still running on AMD r5 or r7 series. This would be great upgrade. Also if you have like nVidia GS/GT series, this card would be great upgrade. Plus resale value will remain high, as this card is better than the gtx 750ti.
Save up for a 1060 it's about $60 more.
Jigar upgrade kr le
I have a GTX 950, will it worth it if I upgrade to GTX 1050 TI?
of course, 1050Ti delivers a decent frame rate for most recent AAA title at medium high~ultra setting. My brother runs Assassin Creed Syndicate with 1050Ti at 50fps on near ultra setting.
not only moba I think.
if you're still using it, no point changing it to 1050 Ti but it would be a good choice if you're building a new budget rig for MOBA games.
So it's better I stay my gtx 960?
