The premiere of NVIDIA’s most powerful graphics cards is now behind us, but the company still has plans to continue expanding the family with cheaper models. Among them is the GeForce RTX 3050, which can be a very interesting option for those who play 1080p and are not so demanding.
A few days ago we received news about the GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3050 Ti cards, and today we have information about the cheapest model in the Ampere family: The GeForce RTX 3050.
According to the leaker Kopite, the RTX 3050 would be based on the GA107-300 GPU and would come equipped with 2304 CUDA cores. It is also said that this model would have a 90 W TGP, which requires a 6-pin power connector. Although at the moment it is not known how much memory the new graphics card will be equipped with, it is speculated with at least 4 GB, since using less today would be insufficient for almost any game.
Being an RTX model, this is the first xx50 series GPU that receives access to the Tensor Cores and RT Cores. In addition to being the first in its range to integrate Ray Tracing, what stands out here is that this card will have support to run the very beneficial NVIDIA DLSS technology, which will allow you to access higher resolutions such as 1440p or use Ray Tracing in 1080p .
Unfortunately, we don’t know when NVIDIA plans to release this model for sale. However, it is almost a given that the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, a mid-range GPU that promises to outperform the RTX 2080 SUPER, will hit stores first for a value close to $ 400. Recently the latter would have been delayed until December 2, so we would have to wait several months for the RTX 3050.
