Nvidia has officially unveiled the new GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and GeForce RTX 3050 notebook GPUs. The hardware is expected to provide enough performance for seamless gameplay at 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second in the latest games. It is also the first GPU series in this segment to offer ray tracing support.
According to Nvidia, the cards offer twice the performance of their GeForce GTX 16 series predecessors. However, it should be noted that the green here takes into account the differences when turning on the DLSS technique – without it, the advantage is slightly reduced, although it is still big.
The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and GeForce RTX 3050 notebook cards feature 4GB of GDDR6 memory and a 128-bit interface. Both are available in TDPs from 35W to 80W, which is a pretty wide range and significantly affects clock speeds. The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti has 2,560 CUDA cores, 80 Tensor cores and 20 RT cores on board, with Boost clock speeds ranging from 1,035 MHz to 1,695 MHz. GeForce RTX 3050 – has 2048 CUDA cores, 64 Tensor cores and 16 RT cores. For it the Boost has been set at 1057 to 1740 MHz, depending on the expected TDP.
Nvidia announced that with the launch of the new GPUs, the number of notebook models with RTX 30 cards will increase to more than 140. Among them are also new models of the Nvidia Studio family, such as the Dell XPS 15 or Lenovo IdeaPad 5i Pro. Green says prices for laptops with RTX 3050 will start at $799.
