As expected, here's NVIDIA's official GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti announcement. The rumor from earlier today got mostly confirmed, one major difference being that it will not be a same-day launch date. The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has a $139 MSRP and will ship on October 25, while the $109 GeForce GTX 1050 follows on or before November 8.
We’re adding two new gaming GPUs to our award-winning lineup of NVIDIA-Pascal based GPUs — the GeForce GTX 1050, starting at $109, and the GTXD 1050 Ti, starting at $139.

Both will let you play your favorite games at a smooth 60 frames-per-second.

Built on the same Pascal architecture as the most advanced GPUs in the world, the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti let new PC gamers discover why GeForce delivers the best gaming experiences.


GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti custom boards will be available from NVIDIA GeForce Partners, including ASUS, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, iGame, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. NVIDIA GeForce partners represent a global network that will deliver GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti to gamers in 238 countries and territories. GTX 1050 Ti will be available on October 25, while the GTX 1050 will be available on or before November 8.

Reviews will follow next week and NVIDIA claims these mainstream cards will let you enjoy your favorite games at 60fps using a 1080p Full HD resolution. According to NVIDIA's internal testing, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is on average 40 percent faster and over 128 percent more energy efficient than AMD's Radeon RX 460.
