Would a GTX 1050ti Laptop cut it?

Is the GTX 1050ti 4GB GPU recently released for laptops up to the job of gaming for the next couple of years in 1080p?

I’ve seen lots of reviews and Youtube videos where the 1050ti is either shown to run at an average of 60fps+ in high/maximum settings or it’s either around half of that or around 50fps on medium settings so I really don’t know what to think. I’m well aware this is a low end GPU – however I’d hope in 1080p it could achieve decent frame rates at decent settings for current gen games, and be perfectly usable for the next couple of years.

Has anyone got a laptop 1050ti and can relay their experience?

To step up to a 1060 looks like it’ll be around £200 more so that’s a jump, but ultimately, if the 1050ti wouldn’t be up to the job that £200 wouldn’t be a bad investment.

Thanks,

Depends on the games you wish to play and how high the settings.

I have a laptop with a 965m, which is not as good as the 1050 ti, and it plays stuff like League of Legends and Overwatch fine. I suspect high end titles would struggle unless the settings were lowered right down.

The 1060 is quite a lot better than the 1050ti, so if you want longevity the extra £200 sounds worth it.

I would upgrade if you want max settings at 1080p. The 1050ti is good but I don't think it will last more than 2 years of playing games. I thing the 1050 series is for people who want to play a medium to high settings.

Thanks guys.

I'm definitely leaning to the 1060 now, but would still be interested to hear from anyone with a 1050ti laptop about their experiences with it.

I've ordered an Alienware 15r3 with an i7 6700HQ and a GTX 1060 from the Dell outlet store for a whisker under £1050.

Thanks for the advice, I'm still interested to hear from any 1050ti laptop owners, I still have a nagging sense of curiosity!
