The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 is a mid-range video card for laptops. Although it’s the slowest part in the current GeForce GTX 10 laptop GPU series, the GTX 1050 delivers quite decent gaming performance while being cost effective. It is used in budget-class gaming notebooks, oftentimes priced below $1,000. With the GTX 1050 you certainly won’t be able to have completely smooth gameplay in all the latest AAA titles with maxed-out graphics detail settings and high resolutions. But, many of the older popular titles, games that don’t tax the GPU too much, and more demanding games on medium settings, should run fluidly.

Note: The benchmark scores of the listed graphics processors are averages measured across various devices with these processors. The scores and real-world performance of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 and compared GPUs may vary depending on the notebooks' other components, settings, cooling, and other factors (especially single-channel vs faster dual-channel RAM and speed of the main processor). However, the benchmark results, as well as gameplay videos, are good indicators of the graphics processors' performance.
