MSI reveals a low-profile GTX 1050 GPU

A lot of us do not enter the world of PC gaming by building our own PCs, or even spending money on gaming oriented prebuilds. Many of us start using old home-office PCs, adding a low-power, small form factor GPU to create a low budget gaming PC. 
With Nvidia's new Pascal lineup of GPUs the company has been able to deliver a lot of GPU performance while consuming very little power compared to their previous generation counterparts. 
Now MSI has announced a new small form factor GTX 1050, which can fit into PCs with half height PCI slots and only requires power from your motherboard's PCIe connection. This will allow this GPU to fit into pretty much any system and will not consume enough power to be an issue when used with old pre-built office PCs.

This GPU is called the GTX 1050 2GB LP and will come with Nvidia's reference GTX 1050 clock speeds of 1354MHz base and 1455MHz boost, with memory speeds of 7000MHz. This GPU will have 2GB of GDDR5 memory, making it suitable for modern games at 1080p with high-resolution textures. 

This GPU will come with a DVI-D port, an HDMI 2.0b port and a DisplayPort 1.4 port, making this suitable for any modern display. This GPU will be cooled by two 50mm fans, which should be more than enough to cool this 75W GPU.

Right now MSI has not revealed the pricing of MSI's GTX 1050 LP, but it is expected to come in at Nvidia's MSRP of $109.99 given its reference clock speeds.
