    They took an example from Intel.

    Not a good one though.

    The MX name makes me think back to the MX 440 days. Yes, I had one.

    And AMD too, remember those new mobile GPU few year ago that use "legacy" drivers only...
    For entry model GPU or you have an APU, IGP or you get a "powerfull" old gen GPU to clean the stock.

    If entry level, and so few CPU power, i would preffer IGP or APU, to save the battery...

    Why not? Pascal by today's standards is still very efficient and these low-end solutions don't need the Turing features.

    I think the main usage for this is office PCs if you have 2-3 monitor setups e.t.c.

    <--- reads this article on a very fine and working Pascal GPU.

    If it was Fermi, I would understand such reaction, but Pascal will be good for 2-3 more low-end renames.

    You have top-end Pascal, that most definitely won't be used in those. Instead, some bottom of the barrel stock.

    hahaha i used to have a MX4000 which was a lot worse lol

    on topic: i think there is nothing wrong with using pascal which is really good still

    Pretty much everyone does this nowadays, take a card and put it down in the stack and sell it on... As long as they drop the price because its not new tech then i think this is fine, specially since they a lower end models, more used for light work rather than full brute gaming, then again 1050 is fairly decent gpu, so that being sold cheaper or more laptops is not end of the world.

    The 1050 was and still is a very decent GPU especially for this intended purpose.

    Most GPUs do fine for their intended purpose; seems many here forgot the that there are some many more uses for a computer other than gaming.

    If it wasn't made clear to anyone: these are mobile chips. 1050 performance in a laptop isn't bad at all. It is very common for laptops to get GPUs that are 1 or 2 generations behind, because they're usually equipped with leftover chips that perhaps still work but can't clock high enough for desktop use.

    Precisely.

    At work, I have GT 1030, does its job perfectly well for its intended purpose.

    I just bought a GT 710 to be used in a home server (a Xeon which doesn't have iGPU, so needs external GPU to give any video output) and replace an ancient and noisy ATI Radeon HD 2600 (65nm) that is now malfunctioning...

    Price: 37 Euro.
    There are plenty of uses for weak, low-power GPUs... not everything is about gaming.

    I'm sure these will be fine. My run of the mill laptop has a gtx950 and it's surprisingly capable. Other than AAA games, it works quite well for gaming. I rarely use it for that, but it's there, which is why I bought this one a few years ago.
