Make Way for the 1050 Ti

In what could be the most awaited graphics card in terms of price and affordability, NVIDIA® has surely got the ball rolling for its latest entry-level GPU from its GeForce® GTX 10 Series. Now offering the 1050 Ti in the market, NVIDIA® knew that a decent preference to the more commonly adopted first-rate graphics cards would be highly demanded by gamers who are either just starting to create their own gaming rig or simply by those pros who have somewhat established a price cap on their gaming components. In this instance, a cut-rate GPU has been devised in the form of the MSI® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X.

Make Way for the 1050 Ti

Built with MSI®’s very own TORX 2.0 Fan and ZeroFrozr technologies, the MSI® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X can only guarantee a superb cooling performance across all phases of every game. With a fan design that generates 22% more air pressure and a sharper curved blade that further accelerates the airflow, the MSI® GeForce® GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X delivers an uncontested silent performance even during the most intense moments of the game, thus greatly increasing the effectiveness of the GPU. With the elimination of noise caused by the spinning fans, gamers can now fully concentrate on their hard-fought battles as they quest for victory.
