GeForce GTX 1050 for laptops is part of the latest NVIDIA lineup of GPUs featuring a brand new architecture design, simply called “Pascal”. Announced in January 2017, the GeForce GTX 1050 (and 1050 Ti) feature a Samsung-made FinFET 14nm chip instead of the TSMC 16nm found in the GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080. The graphics card is based on a GP107 chip paired with 2GB of GDDR5 memory via 128-bit interface.
Since the GTX 1050 is quite dependent on the cooling design, its performance may vary, but if the laptop handles the GPU well it shouldn’t be much different from its desktop counterpart. The graphics processor operates at relatively high frequencies (1354 – 1493MHz) but incorporates the same amount of CUDA cores (640) while the memory is clocked at 7000 MHz (effective). These specs ensure a huge performance boost over the previous generation of Maxwell GPUs. For instance, the GTX 1050 performs better than the GTX 960M and can be compared to the GTX 965M’s capabilities while running at similar to the GTX 960M’s TDP of around 40-50W.
Along with all the power consumption and performance improvements, the GeForce GTX 1050 supports essential features like DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, HDR, improved H.265 encoding, and decoding.
