During recent past months, we have been reading about the new Pascal based mid-range GPU, GTX 1050 based on GP107 and its release sometime during Fall 2016.
A new report published by DigiTimes claims that the Pascal based graphics cards such as GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 are getting strong demand from the market, therefore the company is having some issues while meeting the supply. Furthermore, the company is planning to launch the upcoming GTX 1050 at the end of this month.
According to the report, Nvidia’s AIB partners such as Gigabyte, Asus, Micro-Star International (MSI) are currently ‘striving’ for the GPU supply from the base company, and excited for the profits of the third quarter due to greater demand for the graphics cards in the market.
Last week, we reported the leaked specifications of the forthcoming GeForce GTX 1050, that uses GP107 silicon manufactured on a lithograph of 16nm FinFET under Pascal architecture which would offer 768 CUDA Cores (512 CUs less than the GeForce GTX 1060) with 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. It would come at a reference Base / Turbo frequency of 1316/1380 MHz coupled with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory @ 7.00 GHz backed by a memory interface of 128 bits resulting in a bandwidth of 112.1 GB / s with 52.1 GPixels and 84.2 GTexels.
Let’s see how Nvidia overcomes its supply shortage and roll the market with their low priced, mid-range graphics card in the coming weeks. Nvidia will be releasing the official details pretty soon. Stay tuned for more updates!
