KFA2 GeForce GTX 1050 OC 2GB Video Card Review

Videocards/VGA Reviews by stefan @ 2017-02-03

The GeForce GTX 1050 implementation from KFA2 provides a small overclock from the factory, a dual-slot cooling system that can keep the GPU at low temperatures even during long gaming sessions and no less than three video outputs. The card lacks fancy stuff such as LED-lighted fans or logos as we have seen on more expensive card models and does not require extra power from a separate PCI-Express PSU connector. GTX 1050 represents a light version of the 1050Ti (with one SM disabled) and only 2GB RAM but still succeeds to hold its own in games such as Dirt Rally, Tomb Raider 2013, Bioshock Infinite, Batman Arhkam Origins and more, with the details set to high and at a resolution of 1920z1080.

Hitman is an episodic action-adventure stealth video game developed by IO Interactive and published by Square Enix for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

3DMark: Time Spy


Time Spy is a new DirectX 12 benchmark test, coming soon to all Windows editions of 3DMark. With its pure DirectX 12 engine, built from the ground up to support new features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading, Time Spy is an ideal benchmark for testing the DirectX 12 performance of the latest graphics cards.


Developed with input from AMD, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and the other members of the Futuremark Benchmark Development Program, Time Spy shows the exciting potential of low-level, low-overhead APIs like DirectX 12.
