Okay, so every true tech enthusiast gets overly excited for a particular annual event. That’s right it is the CES 2017, one of the biggest technology trade shows in the world. The Consumer Electronics Show (or CES, for short), is held at Las Vegas every January.
The show features big names, like Samsung, LG and Ford flock to the city to parade their latest gadgets. And this year it will be no different.
The most highlighting news this time is the NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1050 graphics chip. The NVIDIA’s GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti mobile variants will feature in a range of new gaming notebooks. What makes the graphic cards stand out, is that they deliver full high-definition gaming performance ‘and’ consume minimal power.
The CES 2017 trade show will potentially reveal GTX 1050 notebook solutions. And alongside will be Intel’s upcoming “Kaby Lake” seventh-generation “H” processors for high-end notebooks and gaming laptops.
The NVIDIA’s GTX 1050 graphics chip:
If you are not sufficiently acknowledged with the NVIDIA’s GTX 1050 graphics chip, here are its few aspect you should look at:
- It is based on the latest new “Pascal” graphics chip design
- will replace GTX 960M and GTX 950M class GPUs from prior generation
There is no denying that NVIDIA planning to introduce more budget oriented chips for the notebook market is a commendable gesture.
At this point it is still unclear if NVIDIA will have both GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti options in the notebook segment. But they will definitely be based on GP107 GPU.
The vanilla GTX 1050 has a suggested price of $110 while the GTX 1050 Ti has a suggested price of $140.
In other news, there are rumors that NVIDIA will start shipping some units of the GeForce GTX 1060 with GP104 class GPUs. That is mainly because NVIDIA wants to utilize defective GP104 chips that failed to meet the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 specifications. That is definitely a smart move on their part, better than disposing them off. The new GP104 chip is said to be named GP104-140.
