The GeForce GTX 1050 with 768 CUDA cores and 128-bit memory bus will be presented at the end of October
To date, the most affordable graphics card Nvidia generation Pascal is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with 3 GB of memory, which is estimated at $200. This is a very popular segment, but many are waiting for more cheap solution.
For example, you may recall that the GeForce GTX 950 after dispersal even overtakes the GTX 960, running at reference frequencies. So users have a reason to wait for the GTX model 1050.
She, according to new figures will be announced in October. Presumably, this will happen in the period from 24 to 28 October. You can also assume that the cost of the adapter will be $150-$170. Thus, the youngest of the Pascal cards will be a direct competitor to the Radeon RX 470.
As for settings, recently leaked screenshots of GPU-Z indicate that the accelerator will contain 768 CUDA cores and 2 or 4 GB of memory, connected to the core via a 128-bit bus. The novelty will be based on the GPU GP107, the appearance of which can be safely expected in the mobile segment.
Core clock, according to leaks, will be 1318/1380 MHz, and the memory operates at a frequency of 7000 MHz. That is, the 3D map will initially operate at much lower frequencies than the GeForce GTX 1060. Given the difference in the configuration of the cores and the width of the memory bus, it is possible to conclude that the difference in performance between the cards is greater than between the GTX 950 and the GTX 960. Perhaps frequency potential GP107 will be the same as the older models, which will neutralize the difference in performance overclocking.
But it is worth noting that the level of alleged TDP is 75 W, i.e. the reference model, if any, will, without additional power connector, which will limit the acceleration.
