Not everyone has the money to splash on a new Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, and in all fairness, not everyone needs that kind of power either. For those building a system for younger gamers, those who game a 1080P monitor, or who are solely interested in playing many of the less graphically demanding eSports titles, a 2GB graphics cards like the GTX 1050 from Gigabyte is more than enough for their performance and budgetary needs.
“GIGABYTE G1 Gaming Series graphics cards are crafted for perfection in pursuit of the ultimate graphics experience for gaming enthusiasts. Based on the revolutionary NVIDIA® Pascal™ GPU architecture, G1 gaming graphics card brings you incredible gaming experience. Pascal-powered graphics card give you superior performance and power efficiency. Classic and modern games at 1080p @ 60 FPS. Fast, smooth, power-efficient gaming experiences” – GIGABYTE
Designed to deliver a modest upgrade for those looking for entry-level gaming. The Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1050 is ideal for League of Legends, DOTA II, Counter Strike, and so many others. 2GB of VRAM can be quite limiting these days, so we’re expecting this card to struggle in some of our demanding benchmarks, but with support for DirectX 12, and all the other cool features delivered by the NVIDIA Pascal architecture, the G1 Gaming is still set to be good value for money at just £127 (at the time of writing).
“The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system features two 90mm unique blade fans, 2 pure copper composite heat-pipes, alternate spinning fan design, and heat pipes direct touch technology, together delivering an effective heat dissipation capacity for higher performance at lower temperatures.” – GIGABYTE
