Nvidia launches RTX 3050, announces RTX 3090 Ti and a bunch of new laptops
RTX 3050 desktop is finally here, Geforce Now can be played from anywhere and has 1100+ titles and RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU will enter market soon
Yes, there is a 3090 Ti coming. At a time when people can’t get their hands on any RTX 3080 or RTX 3090, there is a 3090 Ti coming.
Although the details for the 3090 Ti is very scarce at the moment. Although, a few details have surfaced about the 3090 Ti. It is practically the same as the RTX 3090 with a triple-slot design.
It will use GA102 GPU, which is also utilised by RTX 3090, RTX 3080 and RTX 3080 Ti. It is rumoured to have 10752 CUDA cores compared to which RTX 3090 has 10496 CUDA cores.
Well, no one seems to be eager to buy this GPU considering the current high-end RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 is really hard to get.
Although, there is a new 50 series card that might be helpful depending on its availability.
Nvidia launches RTX 3050 for desktop
Nvidia launches 50 series cards in every generation which is targeted for the entry-mid level market. RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti mobile version already exists for laptops.
RTX 3050 will provide the budget market with a chance to experience Ray Tracing and DLSS. It is clearly being targeted for 1080p 60 Hz gaming with Ray tracing.
The new card will feature the second generation Ray tracing cores and 3rd-Gen Tensor Cores which will enable features like Ray Tracing, DLSS and AI.
It will feature 2560 CUDA cores with 8 GB GDDR6 memory, a 128-bit memory bus and a 1.55 GHz base clock (1.78 GHz base clock).
According to Nvidia, RTX 3050 can run Control at 60 FPS, at 1080p highest settings with RT + DLSS on. It might sound impressive but something doesn’t feel right here because an RTX 3050 laptop can already run Control with RT + DLSS at around 45-50 FPS.
If the RTX 3050 can run Control at 60 FPS with RT and without DLSS, that would be impressive. According to the price of the RTX 3050, it is comparable to GTX 1660 Super which is priced similarly. In terms of performance, it must be comparable to 1660 Super but with Ray Tracing cores.
Although it is meant to replace GTX 1650 and provide a step-up to RTX cards, it cannot have a performance relative to GTX 1650 at this price. That would be an epic failure.
It will be available worldwide starting Jan 27 and the price will start from $249. In India, it is priced starting from INR 22,200. The price could have been lower but it doesn’t matter since we know that they will be sold out very quickly and the prices will be inflated.
