GALAX GeForce GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White 4GB Review
Price and Availability
The GALAX GeForce GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White 4GB is now available in the US. At the time this review was published, it comes with a retail price of $139.99 USD. It’s a reasonable price, considering that most GTX 1050 Ti in the market have the same price tag. Again, there is also a black version of this card, but it doesn’t have any LED lighting. The GALAX GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White is available at the official Galax Store here.
GALAX GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White Review: Conclusion
Based on our testing and benchmarking, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is clearly for 1080p gaming (or lower) and it’s not designed for 1440p and 4K gaming. This is true regardless of the brand or who manufactured the 1050 Ti. This is actually the second GTX 1050 Ti we reviewed, the first one was from Zotac. Both GTX 1050 Ti shows a very similar gaming performance.
The GTX 1050 Ti, in generally is geared towards budget conscious gamers, and PC gamers who are playing MOBA games and other light to moderate games. At 1080p games like Battlefield 4, Doom (2016), Shadow or Mordor are very much playable with an average of 60 fps at ultra-settings. Some newer game titles may require you to tone down the graphics quality to enjoy an average of 60 fps. 30 to 40 fps is still a playable frame rate, but at 60 fps average is where you want to game.
However, if you intend to play more demanding games specially AAA titled games, you may want to invest more on your graphics card and get a GTX 1060 or RX 480; better yet a GTX 1070 instead, like the GALAX GTX 1070 EXOC SNPR. This card is a sweet spot for 1440p and can certainly drive most (if not all) games at 60 fps ultra-settings on 1080p resolution.
Going back to the GALAX GTX 1050 Ti EXOC, this is a pretty and clean looking graphics card. It surely is an all-white design and the white LEDs on the fans are a nice addition. I don’t find any cons, and if I have to nitpick on something; I wish the fans would stop on idle and probably they should have coated the exposed copper heatpipe to match the all-white color scheme.
To wrap things up, the GALAX GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White is a good solid performing graphics card, ideal for 1080p gaming resolution. It’s a good card specially if you only have a budget of around $140-$150. And if you are looking for an all-white graphics card for your build, consider this GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White on your top list.
