Conclusion and Verdict
Although the results and numbers from our benchmarks may seem a little low, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition coped fairly well … well enough at least, to run all the latest games and fully complete our benchmark tests, which included 3DMark 11, 3DMark Time Spy (DX12), Heavensward (DX11), Unigine Valley (DX11) and DOOM (Vulcan).
As I said earlier, remember this card is aimed at the entry-level market, so I didn’t expect any bells or whistles. However having said that … what was surprising, is that it ran all of our benchmarks at Ultra settings @ 1920 x 1080 with no issues.
The card is pretty compact and doesn’t require any additional power, which I think is ideal for any one wanting to build a HTPC system. It also features a HMDI port, Displayport and DVI for connectivity.
- Very affordable
- Pascal architecture
- DX12 support
- Pre-overclocked GPU
- No cons as such from this entry-level card
If you’re after an entry-level graphics card for gaming, then why not consider the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition. The compact size of the card also makes it ideal for any HTPC builder. It comes with a pre-overclocked GPU and offers pretty decent gaming performance at lower resolutions, but can also handle 1080p with no issues, albeit lower frame rates.
