Nvidia has its lip sealed when it comes to its next-gen GPUs as the company hasn’t revealed them, however, while we won’t be hearing about them soon but according to a report, Nvidia is bringing a GTX 1050 with 3 GB VRAM to the market.
Currently, the GTX 1050 features 2 GB VRAM while the 1050 ti features 4 GB of VRAM and now a report has made its way on the internet suggesting that a 3 GB version of GTX 1050 are soon to be introduced.
The report comes from Expreview which suggests that 3 GB version of GTX is being worked on by Nvidia. However, there is a possibility that this 3 GB version of the GPU could be China exclusive like the 5 GB version of GTX 1060.
The reason why Nidia might be introducing a 3 GB version of the GPU might be the increasing VRAM requirements of video games and 2 GB VRAM is not enough in most cases to run games at a decent frame rate at 1080p resolution.
Also, Nvidia has announced its GTC Taiwan conference where the company has teased “Ultimate Gaming Experience”. However, if you have been hoping that Nvidia might reveal its next-gen GPUs then you would be disappointed as the official topics of discussion for the event will be AI related.
Furthermore, Nvidia is collaborating with Square Enix for the upcoming Shadow Of The Tomb Raider to improve the game’s performance on PC and introduce PC exclusive enhancement.
We’re pleased to announce that we’re working with the studios once more on the PC version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider. This collaboration will bring all the benefits of the GeForce gaming platform including GeForce technologies, GeForce Experience features, Game Ready Drivers and much more to deliver the definitive PC version for the Tomb Raider series.
