As GPUs increase in price (thanks to crypto-mining) NVIDIA decided to release a budget-friendly GPU designed specifically for gaming. Positioned between the 2GB GTX 1050 and the 4GB 1050 Ti, this new budget-friendly GTX 1050 3GB features a faster base clock speed but lower memory bandwidth when compared to the other two models. The 3GB storage of the budget friendly GPU allows the PC component to be suitable for modern gaming but less desirable for crypto-mining.
Despite carrying a 'budget-friendly' tag, and price point, the GTX 1050 3GB does not skimp on performance at all. The new GPU features 768 CUDA cores, vastly improving on the 640 found in the original GTX 1050. The clock speed on the budget-friendly GPU has also seen an upgrade as it boosts up to 1,518MHz, compared to 1,455MHz for the original GTX 1050.
