Inno3D GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Single Slot review: flat as a pancake

Uniquely thin, but not without a compromise


Test method

We perform our graphics cards tests using a selection of the games that we use for 3D-chips. Every graphics card is tested with 3DMark Fire Strike (DX11) en 3DMark Time Spy (DX12), with a selection of five games:

  • Battlefield 1 (DX12)
  • Civilization VI (DX12)
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider (DX12)
  • Ghost Recon Wildlands (DX11)
  • The Division (DX12)

The resolutions at which we test a graphics card depends with the sensibility of certain settings. This means we prevent low-end graphics cards rendering a slide show at 4K-resolution, and also limit CPU-bottlenecks by testing high-end cards on low settings. In this case, we are using the following resolutions and settings:

  • 1920x1080 (WQHD) Medium / Normal
  • 1920x1080 (WQHD) Highest / Ultra + 4x MSAA
  • 2560x1440 (Ultra HD) Medium / Normal
  • 2560x1440 (Ultra HD) Highest / Ultra + 4x MSAA

We test graphics cards on an Intel Haswell-E based test platform. Specifications of the test platform are:

Aside from performance we also measure the power consumption and noise levels of graphics cards. Lastly we also look at how the clock speed changes during a long gaming session, to find out if the cooler on the card is adequate enough to prevent thermal throttling.

In the graphs, you will see how the Inno3D GTX 1050 Ti compares to the other cards of the same type.
