The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q GPU is designed to maximize the power and thermal envelope of a notebook PC. It features an 1152 MHz base clock and can be overclocked to 1752 MHz. Its power draw is 75 watts.
While it doesn’t have the highest benchmark scores, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q is still a good choice for gaming. Several benchmarks were performed to compare performance, such as 3DMark. The results are displayed in frames per second, and system requirements are also included. Keep in mind that official benchmark results may not reflect the actual performance of your graphics card, since they depend on the game system, operating system, and other factors.
The GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q performs better than the GTX 1050 Ti Mobile but is slower compared to the GTX 1050. In games, it was able to reach 33.7 fps on average. This result is much better than the RX 560 Mobile, which averaged 32.5 fps.
Besides the increased clock speeds, the GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q also boasts a lower power consumption than the standard GTX 1050 Ti. The card runs at a 1620MHz boost clock and is capable of 2.18 TFLOPS, which is a big bonus for gamers.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q features the same 768 CUDA cores as the GTX 1050 Ti, but is manufactured using a 14nm FinFET process. It has a lower TDP than its non-Max-Q counterpart, generating less heat and noise.
In terms of performance, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q has a higher clock frequency and 4GB of GDDR5 memory. It is also 11% more powerful than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile 3 GB. AMD’s closest competitor is the Radeon R9 M295X, which is 1% faster and uses 234% more energy.
