ASUS GTX 1050 Ti Expedition Edition Review


ASUS GTX 1050 Ti Expedition Edition Review


By utilising the latest Pascal GPU you get all the benefits of the latest thinking from nVidia whilst retaining the low cost that you might equate with older cards. At this end of the market it is always a delicate balance between price and performance and normally we'd lambaste a manufacturer for using such old comparison cards in its presentation, but we think that anyone who gains lightly enough that a hundred pound card suits their needs probably wont have upgraded since the GTX 650 or GTX 750. Given how quickly high end games - Triple A is such a misnomer - have evolved thanks to the massive performance increase of consoles with all the performance needs such visuals entail then perhaps there has never been a better time to blow the cobwebs off your old system and revitalise it with a new GPU.

Asus what were you guys smoking? It looks worse than terrible... I understand it's a low budget card but damn! You guys didn't have to make it look so bad. And what is with the wall mount (key hole) on the shroud, also the huge gaping hole where the PCIe power connector should be... it's like you guys just gave up half way through. Kudos to NVIDIA though it's performance is about where I figured it would be for a sub £150 GPU which puts it right about where the 750Ti pricing was at £139.Quote

Hey guys,

Long time lurker here decided to make an account to ask a simple question.

Where is the RX 460 for this test? It is my understanding hardware wise the GTX 1050ti is closer to the RX 460 than the RX 470 and the tests show a big gap proving this. I would like to see the RX 460 vs GTX 1050ti as that is a more appropriate comparison of performance.

Other than that, keep it up. love the in depth bench marks, the DX12 comparisons are great! no need for 4k on this one obviously its a 1080p card. Great list otherwise of different models of cards. Keep it real.Quote

We have not reviewed a 460 (AMD etc hasnt sent us one.

We dont retest for each review so without us having carried out a review in the past it cant be featured in the graphs.Quote

I think that these types of cards have a great place in the small form factor build cases like the N-Case M1. Low power and little heat are great features for an SFF transportable build. I like what you pointed out about 1080 gaming and I have considered a SFF build for just that in the living room. I hope you get one of the single fan short cards in for review, and lets see how the smaller card does with heat dissipation.

Disappointing, but then I should have really known that Nvidia wouldn't give away anything decent for £150. Don't mind the card from the fan side, top part and back are atrocious but I guess that's what happens when you cut corners.

I won't be buying, as it's no better than a 960. No point going 950-960 for £150 may as well leave it.Quote
