The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti sets out to satisfy 1080p MOBA and MMO gamers and it does a pretty good job at that. Being able to play many of your favorite games at 1080p resolution with moderate to high settings is pretty remarkable, especially considering the price point of the GTX 1050 Ti.
The Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition comes factory overclocked at 1392 MHz core 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. So you are getting even more performance than the reference card. Zotac has also outfitted this card with a dual-fan cooling solution that keeps things nice and cool.
While this card scored the lowest out of our test group of graphics cards we really did not have anything similar to compare it to. If we had an RX 460 that would be the best comparison. This card does however show you the large jump in performance compared to the previous generation as well as lowered power consumption.
Right now you can pick up this card at our favorite online retailer for $169. It is pretty incredible that you can get pretty substantial 1080p gaming for that price! Overall ThinkComputers gives the Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition Graphics Card a 9 out of 10 score.
