NVIDIA AIB partners have finally started offering the GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card with the GA107 GPU, resulting in 15W less power consumption.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 gets Ampere GA107 GPU, same performance at 15W lower power
A year ago NVIDIA introduced the GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card, which includes the GA106 GPU for US$249. The graphics card was supposed to offer entry-level RTX performance in a 130W package, but it looks like it was it was originally designed to use the GA107 GPU which at the time shipped for notebooks and NVIDIA had to reuse GA106 silicon for the time being.
Now, a year later, NVIDIA’s AIBs are introducing the GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card with the GA107 GPU. NVIDIA’s GA107 GPU has fewer cores than the GA106, which offers 3,840 CUDA cores. There will be no reason to change the PCB as both versions have identical pin layouts allowing both to be compatible.
MSI released its new GeForce RTX 3050 VENTUS 2X XS 8G OC, which is expected to offer 2560 CUDA cores. The graphics card will be overclockable, with the boost clock expected to be 1807 MHz. Memory speeds are expected to be 14 Gbps and use the onboard 8GB of GDDR6 memory and a 128-bit memory bus. The total power consumption level will be 115 W, 15 W less than the GA106 variant.
The displays of the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 VENTUS 2X XS 8G OC graphics card will have one DisplayPort 1.4a port, one HDMI port, which is expected to support 4K resolutions at 120 Hz with 2.1 specifications, and one DL-DVI-D connector, which interesting that they are adding an older display connector to the GPU. DL-DVI-D cables are seen with LCD connections and provide digital output only.
NVIDIA won’t be releasing the RTX 4050 anytime soon, as they’re still focused on the RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 series for most of early 2023. The successor to the RTX 3050 may not arrive until mid-2023, but it will we’ll have to see so for users willing to wait, the RTX 3050 is a decent entry-level option for now and can be found at decent prices too.
