Adjusting their GeForce GTX 1050 Family info page over the weekend, NVIDIA quietly announced that the expansion of the GeForce 10-series of cards with another entry: the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB. Slotting between the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and original GeForce GTX 1050 (2GB), the GTX 1050 3GB is, despite the name, not actually equal to the original GTX 1050 2GB. Instead it features 768 CUDA cores but on a smaller 96-bit memory bus.
...

3gb Vram, 96bit bus, and possibly only 24rops.

1050 is a gaming card, it runs games fine just not at the ultra high settings and res of some cards. Wow Nvidia is getting confusing however - so many variants of the same cards.

More shady behavior from NVidia. Probably won't have as much negative impact as what they did with the GT 1030, and at least with the oddball memory config it will be quickly obvious these are the cards to avoid.

The advantage this card has over both GT 1030 models and 1050 2GB is that Netflix 4k requires 3GB VRAM.

I'm not planning on upgrading my HTPC before AV1 decoding is supported, but I really hope there will be cheaper cards at that time.

I think that is a stretch. If all you want is Netflix, maybe a cheap AMD RX550. AFAIK, Netfix 4K now works on cards and there is no 3GB memory limit.

I meant no limit on AMD cards. I think the 3GB limit was just NVidia trying to force you to buy a more expensive card for HTPC usage.

Will the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti support two monitors (1 VIA HDMI AND 1 VIA DISPLAY PORT) at 4k, 60Hz? I want to feed 4k from Win 10 PC and a Roku 4k to a LG 43UD79 which is a 3840x2160 4k monitor with 2 HDMI @ 60Hz, 2 HDMI @ 30Hz, 1 DisplayPort and 1 USB 3 inputs.
