Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition Review (4GB GDDR5)

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.

The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition (4GB GDDR5) can be found on Amazon as well as various other retailers for around $150.00 USD. Buy it now at Amaon – https://goo.gl/Ek7Q90

Final Thoughts:

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.
