So earlier this week I took a look at both the GTX 1050 and the GTX 1050 Ti. Both of our samples were from Nvidia and MSI but around the same time I also ended up with a second MSI GTX 1050 Ti, the Gaming X model. It didn’t seem right to just slip the numbers into the other coverage so today I’m going to take a look at the card. It is longer than the other MSI cards and it has a full sized dual fan cooler. They also slipped a 6-pin power connection on it as well so today I’m going to run it through all of our normal tests and see how well it performs.

I also make sure to include a copy of the GPUz for each card tested. This way we can confirm the clock speeds are in line with the specifications. In this case, we can see the card ships with the Gaming Mode as the default and you can use the Gaming App to turn on silent or overclock modes.  It also lets you guys/girls know what driver I tested on and the firmware revision as well.
