Let's start with our photo-shoot of the card itself. As stated there are two models released, the regular 1050 with 2GB graphics memory but now as well the 3GB version. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 with 2GB is based on a 640 shader processor GP107-300 Pascal-GPU. The second SKU would be the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, based on a GP107-301 Pascal based GPU with 768 shader processors (we'll show you some proof of that on the next page).




The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB edition from MSI. You will spot a product with a nice and dark PCB and rather sizable black/white themed cooler for this rather simple product. 



This GeForce GTX 1050 3GB  comes with tweaked clocks on the GPU, but not memory sub-system. Power (75 Watts) is delivered through the PCIe slot, there is no 6-pin PCI-Express power connector as you can see (albeit the PCB has traces for it). Right out of the box the card is clocked like so (Boost Clock / Base Clock / Memory Frequency): 1518 MHz / 1392 MHz / 7008MHz. 


The card itself is a dual-slot solution, it is simply a heat-sink based cooler with two spinners. Above you can spot the backside, everything about the card is simple and relatively small really.


It might not be the most powerful card in the world, but it does bring in acceptable gameplay at 1920x1080, a nice video en/decoder as well as DVI, HDMI, and one display port connector.
