The news about Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3050/RTX 3050 Ti on the desktop platform has been circulating for a long time. It can be traced back to the end of last year. Since the last time it appeared on the roadmap in January this year, there has been no news. This year NVIDIA only released GeForce RTX 3050/RTX 3050 Ti on the mobile platform, with nearly half of the Ampere architecture cycle and rumors that GeForce RTX 2060 will launch a 12GB version, many users even wonder whether Nvidia will launch these products on the desktop platform.
Recently, Twitter user @kopite7kimi
said that the GeForce RTX 3050/RTX 3050 Ti of the desktop platform has obtained new specifications. Among them, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti will be equipped with GA106-150, with 3072 CUDA cores, and 6GB or 12GB of video memory. The competitor is AMD’s just-released Radeon RX 6600. The 6GB video memory version is designed to compete with the rumored 4GB version of the Radeon RX 6600. If AMD abandons this version, NVIDIA will only release the 12GB version on the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. Unlike GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, GeForce RTX 3050 uses GA107-350. The specific specifications are unclear. It is speculated that the number of CUDA cores is between 2304 and 2560, 128-bit memory width, and memory capacity of 4GB or 8GB.
As for the release time of the GeForce RTX 3050/RTX 3050 Ti desktop version, it is still unclear, and NVIDIA has no new update plan for the time being. In fact, in May this year, Palit submitted a series of graphics cards to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), including GeForce RTX 3080 Ti/RTX 3070 Ti/RTX 3050 Ti, and CMP 30HX/40HX/ 50HX/90HX, the number of models using GeForce RTX 3050 Ti is equal to the sum of GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti. Among these models submitted by Palit, only the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti has not appeared so far.
