Featuring an overclocked core, slightly overclocked memory, and based on NVIDIA's Pascal architecture, the MSI GeForce GTX 1050 GAMING X 4G Graphics Card provides major improvements in performance, memory bandwidth, and power efficiency over its predecessor, the high-performance Maxwell architecture. It also introduces innovative graphics features and technologies that redefine the computer as the platform for playing AAA games.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs. There is one DisplayPort 1.4 output, one HDMI 2.0b output, and one DVI-D Dual-Link output. The GTX 1050 Ti is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 768 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA or other APIs.
To keep cool, even when overclocked, MSI implemented their Twin Frozr VI cooler on this card. The Twin Frozr VI cooler uses two large fans to force air through the heatsink and dissipate heat and lower the GPU's internal temperature. Because this kind of cooler recirculates air back into the case, this card works best in cases that have unrestricted airflow. You can also control the side and front LEDs to match your build.
