The mini variant of the upcoming GPU smiles for the camera
NVIDIA Corporation’s (NASDAQ:NVDA) GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is due for an announcement sometime this month. After the Asus Expedition variant was pictured in a recent leak, the mini version of GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has been revealed in a new leak provided by Videocardz.
Asus mini variant is not the only GPU in the picture. We can clearly see EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Superclocked and Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti versions. GTX 1050 Ti will be quite a power efficient GPU, even more so than GTX 950. It will have a TDP of under 75W and reference designs should have no external power requirement, though custom variants will have a 6-pin PCIE connector for overclock headroom.
We don’t exactly know when NVIDIA plans to unveil the graphics card but judging from leaks that have started popping up frequently and how AIB partners are apparently ready with their custom designs, it’s pretty obvious the announcement is imminent. According to rumors, the graphics card will carry an MSRP of $149. It is going to be faster than Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AMD) Radeon RX-460 but fall behind the RX-470 in both performance and price. AMD is reportedly going to slash RX-470’s price by 10$ in anticipation of GTX 1050 Ti, even though the two GPUs are not expected to compete with each other.
GTX 1050 Ti will also get a non Ti version based on a cut down GP107 configuration. It is not likely to be announced alongside its sibling given that we have heard almost nothing about it.
