ASUS GTX 1050Ti 4GB: Non-Mined, Non-Repaired.
The new Expedition is one of four GTX 1050 Ti designs from ASUS, which includes Strix, Dual, Expedition, and Phoenix series’. So you can pick the right one, respectively they offer:
- Strix: premium ROG features like AURA RGB lighting and FanConnect
- Expedition: Built for non-stop, long-term durability, 0dB fan-stop technology
- Dual: price-performance-features sweet spot with upgraded dual-fan cooling
- Phoenix: price-performance focus with core features and a single fan
In addition to these features ASUS puts the Expedition cards through a barrage of endurance testing:
ASUS operates an iCafé Labs, subjecting the cards to 144 hours of dedicated tests, including a 2-hour reboot test, 15-hours of 3DMark looping and a list of the most popular and latest games to absoultely ensure there are no hiccups.
Like all ASUS GTX 1050 Ti’s, the Expedition features 768 cores operating at a base clock of 1,290MHz and boost of 1,392MHz. This is paired with 4GB of super-fast 7GHz (effective) GDDR5. That yields a 28% performance boost in 3DMark Fire Strike and 24% in Fire Strike Extreme at 1920 x 1080 resolution versus a reference GTX 950.
