We’ve been waiting for this, and Nvidia answered. The GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti are now officially available for mobile. Compared to the beefier GTX 1070 and the GTX 1080, these models allows for OEMs to tone down their GPU cooling, and power requirements – allowing for thinner notebooks, with unplugged performance to match. And yes, overclocking is supported.

Nvidia expects the GeForce GTX 1050 to deliver the same desktop performance on notebooks. Nvidia also stated that OEMs can even fit these GPUs inside 17mm thin bodies. The GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti will also support the latest NVIDIA BatteryBoost, for even longer battery life while gaming unplugged. Nvidia details other features below:


  • Achieve up to 3X the performance and power efficiency of previous-generation GPUs.
  • Play classic and modern games at 1080p @ 60 FPS with additional support for the latest DirectX 12 features
  • Explore advanced graphics technologies like NVIDIA GameWorks that provide a more interactive and cinematic experience.
  • Enjoy GeForce Experience – your gateway to great PC gaming. Download Game Ready drivers, keep your games optimized, and share your greatest gaming moments.
  • Create with NVIDIA Ansel – a revolutionary in-game camera that lets you take professional-grade screenshots.
  • Enjoy NVIDIA G-SYNC support buttery-smooth gameplay (on supported models only)
  • Put your overclocking skills to use just like you would do on the desktop
