What experts liked
A reasonably priced card that operates quietly, provides fairly crisp images, and doesn't tend to run hot-impressive qualities for its somewhat limited 2GB capaciy. ideal for intermediate game players.

The GTX 1050 ends up as the best ultra-budget GPU, when your price target is around $100 / £100. For entry level gaming and lighter esports fare, it does fine, and even better it should work in virtually any system sold in the past five or more years.

New NVIDIA pascal architecture delivers improved performance and power efficiency. Classic and modern games at 1080P @ 60 FPS. Fast, smooth, power-efficient gaming experiences

What experts didn't like
Installation can be bit tricky. Occasional black screen flashes have been noted. Not the best choice for serous gamers.

It's a cheaper version of the GTX 950. 2GB VRAM is a concern moving forward
