With Nvidia having already introduced a trio of Pascal chips in the GP102 (Titan X and Quadro P6000), GP104 (GTX 1070 and GTX 1080) and the GP106 (GTX 1060), the next release in the Pascal lineup is rumored to be the GP107 that’ll arrive onboard the GTX 1050 graphics card.
The SKU’s alleged codename, GP107-400, suggests we’ll see a fully enabled chip built on the 16nm FinFET process that’s free of any disabled cores. That said, the source claims the GP107 will feature 768 CUDA Cores, a CPU clock of 1,316MHz and a boost clock of 1,380MHz. The texture fill rate checks in at 84.2 GTexel/s.
The GP107 also reportedly has up to 4GB of GDDR5 memory from Samsung, a memory clock of 1,752MHz, a 128-bit bus width and bandwidth of 112.1GB/s. The publication says we can also expect a TDP of just 75 watts. Whether or not GTX 1050 cards arrive without an auxiliary power connector remains to be seen.
All things considered, the GTX 1050 is expected to compete with AMD’s RX 470 in terms of performance and may slot into the $150 price point when it arrives in mid-October.
As always, keep in mind that this is strictly a rumor as Nvidia has yet to confirm anything.
