MSI GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X Preview
Published: 26th October 2016 | Source: MSI | Price: |
There is a lot to like about the looks of the MSI Gaming X. We've spoken at length about how good the Twin Frozr VI cooler is, and it's in full effect here, combining a passive fan with a regular one to keep the noise low when you're in low use scenarios. Of course the Twin Frozr VI is quiet even under harsh loading, and we've already seen how efficient the GTX 1050 Ti GPU is, so we're pretty sure that this Gaming X will continue the trend of quiet MSI cards. Even though the GTX 1050 Ti isn't the biggest graphics card in the world the Twin Frozr fits the PCB well too, meaning that the card looks way more expensive than it is. Something we always enjoy. Nobody wants a card that looks cheaper than it cost.
Lastly the important part is that the MSI GTX 1050 Ti comes equipped with a power input. Hopefully the combination of that and the MSI Afterburner software will allow us some overclocking fun and games, or at the very least free up the GPU Boost technology to work its magic without the card being compromised by the power target.
