The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

The Zotac GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mini looks exactly like the GeForce GTX 1050 Mini that we reviewed recently, being only 5.7 inches (145 mm) long and using two slots. It has a 90 mm fan.

In Figure 2, you see the video connectors of the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mini. It brings an HDMI 2.0b, a DisplayPort 1.4, and a DVI-D connectors.

In Figure 3, you see the top of the card. Notice that there is no auxiliary power connector, but the PCB has the room for this connector, which means can be some other models (provably overclocked ones) with this connector present.
