After several rumors circulating around the tech community, NVIDIA has finally announced what seems to be a toned-down version of its popular GTX 1050 Ti, or a slightly vamped-up version of the GTX 1050 2GB – the GTX 1050 with 3GB of VRAM.
While it is named as GTX 1050, the GTX 1050 3GB has 768 CUDA cores, the same count as GTX 1050 Ti. What’s amusing is that the card has 102 MHz higher base clock and 126 MHz higher boost clock than the 1050 Ti. With 3GB GDDR5 memory on board, and a slightly toned-down 96-bit memory bus, expect up to 84 GB/s of bandwidth compared to 112GB/s of both the GTX 1050 2GB and GTX 1050 Ti 4GB cards with 128-bit memory.
Pricing and Availability
There’s no information yet about GTX 1050 3GB’s pricing and availability but NVIDIA’s Spokesperson told PC World that “it’ll occupy the similar price bands with the existing lineup. We’ll see more soon.
