Galax has unveiled its new low-profile GTX 1050 series graphics cards, the GTX 1050 OC and the GTX 1050 Ti OC, which should appeal to HTPC and SFF owners, packing a decent amount of graphics power in a dual-slot low-profile form-factor.

While some Nvidia partners decided to go for a standard single fan cooler, Galax decided to equip its low-profile GTX 1050 series with a rather hefty heatsink and two fans. Since both the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti do not need additional power, other than the PCIe slot, it makes them perfect for HTPC and SFF systems.

In case you missed it earlier, the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 are based on the same 14nm GP107 Pascal GPU with two graphics processing clusters (GPCs). The GTX 1050 Ti packs 6 streaming multiprocessors for 768 CUDA cores, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs while the GTX 1050 has five streaming multiprocessors and ends up to 640 CUDA cores, 40 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

Both cards usually come with either 2GB or 4GB of GDDR5 memory with a 128-bit memory interface.

As the name suggests, both the GTX 1050 OC and the GTX 1050 Ti OC will come with a factory overclock. The base clock of the GTX 1050 OC is set at 1303MHz while the GPU Boost clock hits 1417MHz. The GTX 1050 Ti OC works at 1366MHz GPU base clock and 1468MHz GPU Boost clock. As expected, the GTX 1050 OC comes with 2GB of GDDR5 memory while the GTX 1050 Ti comes with 4GB of GDDR5 memory, both clocked at 7.0GHz.

With a dual-slot bracket, both the GTX 1050 Ti OC and the GTX 1050 come with single DisplayPort 1.4, single HDMI 2.0b and DVI-D display output.

According to Galax, these should be coming to the market soon.
