Nvidia Announces GeForce GTX 1050, GTX 1050 Ti Entry Level Graphics Cards

Nvidia today announced their new GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti which isn’t much of a surprise since pretty much every detail of the upcoming cards were already leaked previously.

Nvidia Alleviates Concerns Founders Editions Cards Designed to Compete Against Partners

For Nvidia’s most recent launches of high end Pascal based graphics cards such as the GeForce GTX 1080, Nvidia made an unusual move to launch their own Founders Edition graphics cards before their partners were allowed to begin selling their own branded graphics cards.

However, according to a recent article by Taiwanese tech publication DigiTimes, Nvidia CEO Jen-hsun Huang claims this is not the case. Huang claims [...]
