NVidia Upgrades GTX 1050 With Faster GPU And More VRAM


NVidia has released an improved iteration of the GTX 1050 GPU with higher clock speeds and 1 more GB of VRAM. The new GTX 1050 GPU has a base clock frequency of 1,392 MHZ and a boost clock frequency of 1,518 MHZ. It also has an additional 1GB of VRAM, bringing it up to 3GB.

The previous GTX 1050 had a base clock frequency of 1,354 MHZ and a boost clock frequency of 1,455 MHZ. The memory interface width of the new GTX 1050 is now a small 96 bits, down from 128 bits in the old one. The memory bandwidth is a lower 84 GB/s, down from 112 GB/s in the old one. The new 1050 also has 768 CUDA cores, up from the 640 cores that the old one had.

The graphics card maintains its small 5.7″ long footprint and 75 Watt TDP/power consumption.
