Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition Graphics Card Review

For our temperature testing we run two different tests. The first is idle with our system sitting on the Windows Desktop. The second is our typical load, which we loop Heaven Benchmark for 30 minutes. Temperatures are recorded using the sensor page in GPU-Z.



Power Consumption
Power consumption for a system is of course very important. To measure power consumption we use the GPU Power Draw sensor in GPU-Z. The idle test is taken on the Windows 7 desktop. The load test was taken running a loop of Heaven benchmark for 30 minutes.



Noise Levels
We will be using the Galaxy Audio CM130 Sound Pressure Level Meter to take sound level recordings from the graphics card in both idle and load states.

    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…
