ASUS Strix GTX 1050 Ti review: Pascal for 1080p
In terms of sheer numbers, the ASUS Strix GTX 1050 Ti outperforms the GTX 960 by a small margin. They are almost neck-to-neck in some games but the 4GB of GDDR5 RAM in the 1050 Ti brings on more performance when it comes to VRAM heavy games such as GTA V when all the settings are turned to the max.
At its price, the ASUS Strix GTX 1050 Ti is a good budget card to have if you’re going to play games at 1080p. Sure, it’s not the most powerful card that can hold a steady 60fps when playing at maximum settings with all filters (AA, SSAO, etc) turned on, but it still holds its own candle against the competition.
Officially priced at PhP 9,620, the ASUS Strix GTX 1050 Ti might be a bit pricey, but it is a decent card for those who are looking to play at 1080p with medium or high settings. However, if you’re already sporting a GTX 960 or an R9 280X from last generation, you might want to give the 1050 Ti a pass.
