NVIDIA has gone and quietly introduced another Pascal-based graphics card to its entry-level lineup, the previously rumored GeForce GTX 1050 with 3GB of GDDR5 memory. As the third GeForce GTX 1050 card in NVIDIA's product stack, the new SKU is sandwiched between the other GeForce GTX 1050 with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, and the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of GDDR5 memory.

t's not entirely clear how NVIDIA will market and sell this new card—there was speculation that it could end up as an exclusive option in China, where it would most likely be found in gaming cafes, or as a variant specifically for OEM system builders. Of course, NVIDIA might also target the gaming community at large, which means users who are shopping for an entry-level graphics card will have to pay extra close attention to the specs since there are now three GeForce GTX 1050 SKUs instead of just two.
