We have all been hearing rumours of Nvidia's entry level Pascal GPUs for quite some time, but now Nvidia is finally ready to officially announce their GTX 1050 and 1050Ti GPUs, which are designed for entry level PC gamers with TDPs of just 75W. 
 
These new GPUs are designed to offer high price-performance with a low TDP and in a small form factor, allowing this GPU to be used with any PC with full height PCIe slots and a PCIe 16x connection. 
 

The GTX 1050 and 1050Ti will be priced at $109 and $139 respectively in the US, with the GTX 1050 coming with 640 CUDA cores and 2GB of VRAM and the GTX 1050Ti coming with 768 CUDA cores and 4GB of VRAM. These GPUs will release on October 25th.

Nvidia's GTX 1050 and 1050Ti will not have a Nvidia reference/Founders Edition design, which means that this GPU will only be available from 3rd parts AIB partners like ASUS, MSI, and EVGA.  

Below is an image showcasing nine of the GTX 1050 variants that will be available at launch, with several manufacturers planning to release several SKUs for these new GPUs.

These two new GPUs will use Nvidia's GP107 GPU, which has been created using Samsung's 14nm FinFET manufacturing process, though Nvidia has not confirmed exactly why they have decided to use Samsung instead of TSMC. 

Nvidia has given the below statement, stating that they are using Samsung as a secondary source for their Pascal GPUs. 

 

    TSMC is the best foundry and our primary supplier. We have always used a second source for some of our supply and have worked with Samsung since 28nm.

 

Right now it is believed that Nvidia is using Samsung 14nm for their GM107 chips due to supply constraints on TSMC's 16nm process. TSMC's 16nm process has been used to create Nvidia's high-end Pascal lineup (GTX 1060 and above), which is a collection of GPUs which have been selling extremely well for Nvidia, resulting in a GPU shortage at launch.

Anything cool or fun is bad for corporations so they either stamp it out, or, "charge for air" and whack a massive tax on it.

It is a shame tbh. Especially when the 950 came with SLi.Quote
