In a while we will have the official launch and the release of the embargo by NVIDIA for its new RTX 3050 graphics. This week its MSRP prices were officially announced, although as expected the price list seen in some stores that were They have advanced double the recommended price. Today and in the absence of a day of the lifting of the embargo by the brand, a website has published its complete analysis showing results, performance, specifications and all good detail. We anticipate it.
NVIDIA RTX 3050 analyzed has a TGP of 130 W, 2560 CUDA Cores and a base frequency of 1,552 MHz and a Boost of 1,777 MHz, with a total of 8192MB GDDR6 memory As a curiosity, in the analysis itself they detail how they were informed that the GPU came with a BIOS that would offer a higher base frequency than 1,845MHz of the 1,777 MHz that the RTX 3050 model should have.
NVIDIA RTX 3050 performs well, but not much
The analysis spotted on the website of MMORPG make a comparison of the RTX 3050 among others against the AMD RX 6600 XT, the RX 6600, RX 5700 XT and the NVIDIA RTX 3060 Ti, unfortunately in this review the performance against a GTX 1660Ti, that as we saw in past leaks, it seems that between the two there is a very even confrontation according to the synthetic tests of 3DMark.
The site that has published the review has a test bench that consists of a tenth generation Intel Core processor, specifically the i7-10700K, likewise the testing team has 32GB DDR4 at 3,200 and the tests shown and rescued by Videocardz before the analyst removed it as it was published ahead of time, show the tests in games at resolutions of 1440p and 1080p resolution also including these resolutions with the DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) activated.
As can be seen in some of the comparative graphics, the RTX 3050 as it can be in games like CONTROL has obtained a superior performance to the RX 6600 XT, but with the DLSS active, however, in the rest of the comparisons in games including with the DLSS active its results are not to shoot rockets and do not bode well in the first instance for the new graph that joins the family of NVIDIA-RTX.
We must bear in mind that this has been the first review of many that will begin to be seen from today and we will be able to obtain a more general and accurate idea of how the NVIDIA RTX 3050 really performs. It is true that it seems that NVIDIA when I talk about it, relied heavily on DLSS, a great technology without a doubt, but that greatly alters the brutal tangible performance of the graphics itself.
In the absence of knowing its viability in the market and its final price in stores, after launch and stock, it can become a graphics card for low-demand equipment, obviously, or for those who are desperately looking for a GPU to retire their old graphics card. the days numbered We have to assume that of course we are not dealing with a GPU designed for 2K or the use of RT (Ray Tracing), it is a graphics card for a gamer audience that is not very demanding in terms of graphic performance.
