Nvidia's GTX 1050 will cost a minimum of £115 in the UK, which is very close to Nvidia's US MSRP of $109. At this time Nvidia has not announced the UK retail price of the GTX 1050Ti, though it is expected to also be close to the companies US price of $139.
 
Nvidia's GTX 1050 will come with 640 CUDA cores and 2GB of VRAM and the GTX 1050Ti will come with 768 CUDA cores and 4GB of VRAM. Both of these GPUs will release on October 25th. 
 
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.

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.

Looking at toms hardware hierarchy list the 460 is about the same as my R9 270, It would be interesting to know if the 1050's besides power use would be any betterQuote

hopefully, it will give us all some competitive pricing in the low end of the market.

I've seen an RX 470 at £165 today, which is pretty low.

Depending where the core itself ends up (and ease of switching) I might treat myself to one.Quote

Is it just me or does the lower end of the GPUs seem rather lackluster?Quote
