At the CES 2022 exhibition, NVIDIA officially released the GeForce RTX 3050 desktop GPU, with an official suggested retail price of $249. It will be available on January 27, with only non-public versions. It adopts the GA106-150 of the Ampere architecture, with 2560 CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR6 video memory, 128-bit video memory bit width, 14Gbps video memory rate, and 130W of TDP.
Although the official launch is only a short time away, there are already retailers who can’t wait to put the product on the shelves. According to XanxoGaming
, a retailer in Peru is selling a GeForce RTX 3050 bundle for $506, which will include Palit RTX 3050 Dual OC together with a Geil Orion DDR4-3200 RAM. Since the same retailer costs $53 for the same memory, that means the graphics card is $453.
Peru should have used Sol to list prices, but local retailers chose to list prices in U.S. dollars due to the fluctuating currency exchange rate. Regardless of whether it is sold with bound memory or not, the price of this GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card from Palit is much higher than the officially recommended price. Retailers around the world will soon announce the price corresponding to the GeForce RTX 3050, and then you can get a clearer picture of the market price.
In fact, the GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card was sold on Amazon Japan before.
