gets a different set of specifications, with 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM and 640 CUDA cores. It has base clock of 1354 MHz and boost clock of 1455 MHz, WccFtech reported. It is also rumored that the smaller variant, GTX 1050 SE is set to be launched in October albeit no exact date is reported. Chinese leaker HW Battle has learned that there will be a third variant of GTX 1050 - which is GTX 1050 SE.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti release date leaked
A new leak suggests that GTX 1050 Ti will arrive in October 18 and GTX 1050 to come out at a later date, that is in October 26, HW Battle reported. Aside from the launch date, a previous leak point at the $149 pricepoint for the Ti and $119 for GTX 1050.

Why many people think GTX 1050 Ti is a deal breaker?
While Nvidia could mark this as an affordable and incredible graphics card, but many are doubtful. The $149 Ti pricetag may be categorized as a budget system but an extra $30 would give RX 470 instead of a slightly lower specification than 960. One consumer in TechPowerUp expressed his opinion by saying that the card should be priced lower, at least $130 if Nvidia wants to target the budget-concern market when launching the entry-level card.
