NVIDIA officially released the long-delayed GeForce RTX 3050 desktop GPU at the CES 2022 exhibition.
Compared with the previous GeForce RTX 3060/RTX 3060 Ti, the GeForce RTX 3050 on the desktop platform is closer to mainstream users, and for the first time, the latest ray tracing technology is brought to the “50” series of desktop GPUs. It uses the GA106-150 of the Ampere architecture, has 2560 CUDA cores, 8GB of GDDR6 memory, 128-bit memory width, 14Gbps memory speed, and 130W TDP. The single-precision floating-point performance of the GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card is 9T FLOPS, which is 38% higher than GeForce RTX 2060 (6.5T FLOPS)
The official suggested retail price of the GeForce RTX 3050 is $249. It will be available on January 27th. Only a non-public version is available. Nvidia said that 75% of gamers are still using GeForce GTX graphics cards, and a considerable part of them will be the target group of GeForce RTX 3050, which will replace the GeForce GTX 1650 series in the future.
In addition, Nvidia also revealed the new GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. It has 10752 stream processors, the basic frequency is 1560 MHz, the acceleration frequency is 1860 MHz, and it is equipped with 24GB of GDDR6X video memory, and the rate reaches 21 Gbps, coupled with the 384-bit video memory bit width, the theoretical video memory bandwidth exceeds 1 TB/s, which will be the first time in the history of GeForce graphics cards that the bandwidth of 1 TB/s has been crossed.
Nvidia said that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti single-precision floating-point performance is 40T FLOPS, reaching the highest level of the current Ampere architecture graphics card. Its TDP is increased to 450W, and it is also the first graphics card to use the new PCIe 5.0 external power supply interface. Nvidia said that it will announce more details later this month and has not disclosed the specific release time and price for the time being.
