NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Specifications Leaked – Features GP107-400 Chip with 768 CUDA Cores

Partial specs of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card recently surfaced on the web. The GeForce GTX 1050 is the successor of the GTX 950, and it is expected to perform more or less similar with the GTX 960 or GTX 970. The performance of the GTX 1050 is still very unclear at this point, but what is clear are the figures shown the (alleged) GPUz screenshot of GTX 1050. Check out more details below.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Specs Leaked

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 is based on the GP107-400 die and is reported to feature 768 CUDA cores with 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs. Okay, GPUz might not be showing the correct TMU and ROP count since Techpowerup hasn’t released an update version that supports the GTX 1050. But assuming this is correct, the GPU clock starts at 1316 MHz with a boost clock speed of up to 1380 MHz.

The GeForce GTX 1050 will also sport 4GB GDDR5 memory (I hope it’s not 3.5GB) with a clock speed of 1752MHz (7008MHz effective), and runs on a 128-bit memory interface. The leak suggests that the GTX 1050 has a TDP of 75W, this means that it may or may no longer have a PCIe power connector. But should NVIDIA decide to make it draw power externally, the least they could put is a 6-pin PCIe power connector. I’m sure some AIB’s will implement a PCIe power connector, specially the “overclock editions” cards studded with LEDs.

There is one thing I am certain of, the GeForce GTX 1050 will not have any SLI support, or will not have any SLI fingers since the NVIDIA decided to remove the SLI feature on the GTX 1060. Only the GTX 1070, GTX 1080 and Titan X (Pascal) supports SLI.

According to the leak report, the GeForce GTX 1050 is said to be released on mid-October 2016. Pricing is not clear yet, but probably it will be around $150 USD, based on the GTX 1060 3GB’s pricing.
