The packing from MSI for the GTX 1050 Ti is same as that of its other Pascal offerings with a little bit more red color and a larger product image.
The front sports the product name and the actual card's picture occupying most of the real estate. Mention to features such as DX12 support and TwinFrozr VI technology are clearly highlighted.To power this nifty little power house you need a 6-pin power connector so theoretically this card can reach upto 150W of peak power consumption which indicated to a promising overclocking headroom! No SLI support is provided for the GTX 1050 Ti

Since the card doesn't generate much heat a simple single pipe heatsink arrangement is implemented to keep the card cool under load.

At the center we have the GP107 Pascal GPU based on the newer 14nm technology unlike the 16nm on which all other Pascal GPUs are based upon.

To power the GTX 1050Ti MSI went for Samsung GDDR5 memory chips and are model number K4G80325FB-HC28. These run at 1750 MHz (7000 MHz GDDR5 effective) and are 1GB each in capacity.
Benchmarks and Overclocking

Installing the MSI GTX 1050Ti Gaming X 4G was easy and it powered up like a breeze once we booted up the system.
GPUZ reported the correct frequencies with 1354Mhz on the clock and 1752Mhz on the memory.
For the benchmarks we used the following test setup configuration --

CPU: Intel Core i7 7700K 4.2Ghz
Motherboard: Aorus Z270X Gaming 7
RAM: Adata XPG Dazzle 16GB 2400Mhz Memory Kit
Cooler: Corsair H100i GTX (Push Pull Configuration)
Graphics Card: MSI GTX 1050 Ti Gaming X 4GB GDDR5
Storage: Corsair Neutron GTX 480GB SSD
Power Supply: Corsair AX860i 860W 80+ Platinum
OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
GPU Driver: ForceWare 375.70

Overclocking the MSI GTX 1050Ti was a simple process and using the MSI Afterburner or any other utility yielded the same results. The highest frequency with respect to performance gains that we could obtain on our sample was 1554Mhz on the clock and 2002Mhz on the memory, anything above this either gave poor results, white dots or even system freeze.
One thing should be noted is that you cannot change the default fan setting son this card through Afterburner so the MSI gaming App is a must for that purpose.that is for this unboxing bye!
