Nvidia is finally lowering their entry level to the new Pascal line of GPUs with the official announcement of the new GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti series of products that are supposed to bring high performance in a small and affordable package with even lower power usage. These new GPUs are essentially the long awaited successor of the popular GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti series of graphic processors from Nvidia and they do come at a very similar price range. You can see the detailed specifications of both new series of GPUs and the expected end user pricing is set at $109 USD for the GTX 1050 and $139 USD for the GTX 1050 Ti with availability of the new GPUs expected for October 25th, so even though the announcement was today there is a one more week wait time before their availability.

There will be no reference design version of the GTX 1050 and the GTX 1050 Ti, even though Nivida is releasing some images with a GPU that apparently seems to have a reference design cooler similar to the one found in the Founders Edition versions of the higher-end Pascal models. The new GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti will be available from petty much any major partner of Nvidia such as ASUS, EVGA, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Inno3D, MSI, Palit, Zotac and others in single and dual-fan designs. Interestingly enough the official specifications of both GPUs say 75W TDP and no external power connector, though we expect to see some partners actually offering OC models that do come with additional PCI-E power connector available. This is also something that you might want to be looking for if you are going to be building mining rigs with let us say 6x GTX 1050 or GX 1050 Ti GPUs. Since GTX 750 Ti was especially popular for building a lower power six GPU mining rigs when it was introduced one can expect that the GTX 1050 Ti especially might be an interesting choice for such solutions as well when it becomes available. So we are going to be keeping an eye out and hopefully will soon be able to test some of the new GPUs and report on their mining performance…

These GPUs are so weak whats the point of doing any kind of mining with them?

Mike, it was the same with the GTX 750 Ti back in the day, but people still built 6x GPU mining rigs with them.

They may not be the most powerful and offering the highest performance to be suitable for large mining operations, but still can be useful for home miners…

Huge benefit being that these don’t need PCIe cables just like the 750Ti. Makes it so much easier when using PCIe extensions, not having to have further wires all over the place.

But with performance being so terrible, it’s not worth the effort of setting them up. It takes like 2 seconds to plug in extra cables, and you can mine 2-4x faster. Also purchasing extra mobo, cpu, ram, ssd, installing OS, setting up miners, etc. Using low power cards is too much trouble. Their price/perf is worse than a 1060 3GB, plus you will have extra overhead from system costs.
