Nvidia will reportedly release their GTX 1050 in October


Yesterday we first heard about Nvidia's GTX 1060 3GB GPU officially, with a release date that should be in Early-mid September and at a price tag that is similar to AMD's RX 480 4GB. 

Now we are hearing reports that Nvidia will be releasing a GTX 1050 GPU in October, a GPU which is rumoured to have a 128-bit memory bus but will more likely be a cut-down version of the GTX 1060's GP-106 GPU core.

Right now we can only guess at the performance of the GTX 1050, though if it is based on the GTX 1060's GP106 GPU core we can expect this GPU to come with around 768-896 CUDA cores. 

We expect that GTX 1050 to be a competitor to AMD's RX 470 GPU, which currently retails at around £165 for the cheapest models.
