Unboxing the EVGA GTX 1050 Ti SC Gaming Edition
The EVGA GTX 1050 Ti SC comes in a small box that advertises that EVGA is Nvidia’s No. 1 seller in the USA. The box features the GTX 1050 Ti SC’s 4GB GDDR5, and that it is ready for Game Ready drivers/GameWorks/DX12.
The sides and back of the box are printed in several languages that advertise its key features, as well as emphasize the EVGA warranty and PrecisionX OC.
The EVGA GTX 1050 Ti SC is a handsome short single-fan card that covers a heatsink. The large fan spins relatively slowly and it never needed more than 40% fan speed to stay below 66C. A slower-turning ACX 2.0 fan will remove the GPU heat better and more quietly, compared with a double speed single blower-style fan. The ACX 2.0 fan is very quiet and we never needed to turn it up as our GPU never got hot even under maximum overclocking.
We turn the card on its edge and look at the slim design cooling fins which allow the card to fit into a PC motherboard’s double slot configuration. The heatsink area is quite large for a very small card. All of the power is drawn from the PCIe slot, there is no PCIe connector.
The EVGA GTX 1050 Ti SC Gaming edition is a handsome small card and the specifications look very good. Let’s check out its performance versus the competing cards after we look over our test configuration on the next page.
