Message 45915 - Posted: 25 Dec 2016 | 17:27:13 UTC

Hi all,

Long story short:

How would a gtx 1050 perform for number crunching?

I currently have one active machine crunching with a gtx 960. I have another machine waiting on my shelf to crunch. I'd like to use that one instead of buying a new one at the moment. I can always buy a new one later and transfer any of my gpu's to them.

So my plan would be to get this and stick it in my machine. I will crunch with linux so no wddm, and I already put linux on the machine.

The link is all I can afford right now.

Feel free to let me know if the gtx 1050 would be decent. Thanks and merry Christmas.

This is the computer that I'll be upgrading from my gtx 460 if the 1050 performs well.

I found only two users with GTX 1050 (searched top 1000 hosts), here are links:

Yeah, I thought they would be rather slower after posting this thread. I guess I'll wait a bit longer. Thanks for the info as well.

The 1050 is very much an entry level card. It would miss the 24h deadline for the 50% credit bonus for most long tasks, so credits would be hit. It's not a great time to be purchasing crunching equipment. In a month or three that will likely change...

Thanks.

I decided to save up and wait :)

I am not sure about that. From the recent presentation at the CES we know that AMD will attack the high-end 1080/1080ti/Titan with their new Vega 10 chip soon. However the smaller Vega 11 (still unconfirmed) seems to compete against the 1070 and will follow later, if at all. So I dont expect any major price change in the middle class.

So in case you want to work with long runs I would go for the gtx 1060 3G at the Moment, it is available from $200 now and only $50 dearer than the 1050ti. 3G is a very limited memory size but suitable for crunching even so. But if you plan to keep the 1060 for a longer time and play games now and then, you may want to consider the more future proof 6G variant.
