Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition Graphics Card Review

A little over a month ago NVIDIA announced both the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GeForce GTX 1050 graphics cards. These are designed for MOBA gamers and gamers who will only be gaming in 1080p resolutions. These cards effectively replace the older GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is the more powerful of the two card featuring 768 CUDA cores spread across 6 streaming multiprocessors, 48 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 4GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface. Today we will be taking a look at Zotac’s OC Edition of the card which features a base clock of 1392 MHz and a GPU boost of 1506 MHz. This is compared to the GTX 1050 Ti’s reference speeds of 1290 MHz core and 1392 MHz GPU boost.

Special thanks to Zotac for providing us with the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition Graphics Card to review.


The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition comes in Zotac’s typical packaging for their graphics cards. On the front it lets us know that it is indeed the GTX 1050 Ti, that it is one OC Edition, has 4GB of GDDR5 memory and more.

    Great review for this small card! I’m wondering if the shroud and fans are removed, will this gpu fit single slot pcie? The fans from the case would be approximately 5 cm from the exposed radiator grill, blowing air in, directly to the grill… In need to fit a small pcie x1 in the slot next to this gpu, and a 2 slot gpu would block that pcie slot

    After putting it in a single slot in my 1u chassis the cooler is still larger than a single slot. It’s probably around 1 1/2 slot size.

    thanks for sharing Owen… i ended up buying the card and using it in first slot, closest to the cpu, then i used a 1x pcie extension cable to install my usb card…
