A rumor about an upgraded version of GeForce GTX 1050 has emerged.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 3GB
The biggest issue with GeForce GTX 1050 is the memory size. The 2GB frame buffer is simply not up to the task in anything with higher resolution textures. This has been shown in numerous reviews, including ours. Would adding another 1GB help? I think it would.
According to Expreview, NVIDIA is working on a 3GB version of GTX 1050. It would occupy the spot between GTX 1050 2GB and GTX 1050 Ti 4GB. However, what also seems possible is an interference into memory bus width, which could be downgraded to 96-bit.
Expreview is usually correct when it comes to such weird announcements, however, our sources were unable to confirm that such card is in the making.
The GTX 1050 3GB could be another China exclusive, given the fact that recently announced a cut-down version (5GB) of GTX 1060 was. More information is to be expected at Computex next month.
