Gigabyte gives launch dates for new gaming laptop range
GIGABYTE AERO 14 gaming laptops now feature a GTX 1060 and are VR ready
Gigabyte just launched a pair of new low-level graphic cards, with GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti, which will fit perfectly into a compact PC case.
Both the cards come with a low-profile design and measure approximately 69mm wide and 167mm in length, with the lesser model being the GTX 1050 OC Low Profile 2G, which comes with 2GB of video memory as the name suggests. The card comes with a base clock of 1366MHz with boost to 1468MHz in gaming mode, which is juiced up to 1392MHz with boost to 1506MHz in OC (overclocked) mode. The GTX 1050 Ti OC Low Profile 4G on the other hand, doubles up the memory to 4GB, and comes with a base clock of 1303MHz with boost to 1417MHz in gaming mode, and once switched into OC mode, you get a base clock of 1328MHz with boost to 1442MHz.
Both the cards dont need a power connector, but Gigabyte does recommend a minimum PSU of 300W. In terms of connectivity, you get a pair of HDMI 2.0b ports, along with a DisplayPort 1.4 and a DVI-D connector for older displays. The GTX 1050 Ti is perfect for those of you who are into 1080p gaming, but you might want to push for the GTX 1060 for extra performance, unless you dont have the space for it of course.
Pricing of the new cards is yet to be confirmed.
