NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in January 2018. This GPU is bad at gaming with a score of 8% in our PC benchmark.

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q has 4 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 109 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q GPU core runs at a frequency of 1151 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1291 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q has a TDP of 75W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
