The GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 I have been launched to replace the older GTX 950 and GTX 750 Ti cards. AMD has responded with a price cut to pressure NVIDIA card vendors. NVIDIA’s Pascal cards have much fast base clock speeds.
We expect immediate retail price cuts for the older GTX 750 Ti and GTX 950 given the lower launch prices of the GTX 1050 & GTX 1050 Ti.

- BioShock Infinite
- Crysis 3
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Rise of the Tomb Raider

Generally the games will be very playable with the GTX 1050 Ti. The lower cost GTX 1050 may need to tweak game settings down a bit.
When the GTX 1070 & GTX 1080 were launched it took several months before very many cards were available. The situation with the GTX 1050 & GTX 1050 Ti should be much better.
