Nvidia Quietly Launches the GeForce GTX 1050

For gamers on a budget, Nvidia quietly added the 3GB GeForce GTX 1050 on its website.

The 3GB version should help gamers handle modern games. It only packs a 96-bit bus, down from 128-bit bus on its siblings, bring its bandwidth down to 84GBps (112GBps on the others.) Nvidia upped the clock speeds, allowing overclocking to 1,518 MHz. For reference, the GTX 1050 can overclock to 1,455 MHz and the GTX1050 Ti can overclock to 1,392 MHz. Due this, you should see a 10% increase over the GTX 1050.

While not yet available, we should see them in early June after Computex, the price will likely sit between the GTX 1050 ($140) and the GTX 1050 Ti ($200.) It will only be offered Nvidia partners, EVGA, Zotac, and Asus.

Magnet Collisions are Awesome

Stumbled on this video a few minutes ago. Extremely satisfying to watch, and definitely one of those things that make you wonder. I dont have too much to say, other than enjoy this video while I go look up stuff about magnets.

Get Destiny 2 for $12 with Humble Bundle Deal

Destiny 2 just received it’s Warmind DLC this past week, so I figured now would be a good time to mention that Humble Bundle is offering Destiny 2 if you subscribe to the June 2018 Humble Bundle.

The monthly subscription is $12/month, which will include a code instantly to play Destiny 2 while you wait for June 1st to roll around. You’ll get 6 other games on June 1st as well, which will be announced on June 1st.

I’ve put some hours in to the Destiny 2 campaign since grabbing my code, and the gameplay is nice. It has some differences from the original game, most particularly in the powers area. It takes a while for even the melee to recharge, but this is at a low level and it does get faster as you level up. Then throw on some gear with Recovery stats and it’ll be faster but overall is still slower to recharge when compared to D1.

You can still grab the Destiny 2 season pass for $35, or purchase them separately at $20 a piece. You’ll only save $5, but $5 is $5.
