The presentation of the RTX 2050 was surrounded by controversy because NVIDIA did not want to provide all the data on this GPU. So we didn’t know what to expect performance-wise and could only know that it would be a cut above the MX570 introduced earlier that day. But today we have the first comparative performance data and it’s quite interesting as it’s a breath of fresh air. This is the performance of the RTX 2050.
The GPUs that were reigning in the lower-end gaming laptops within NVIDIA were two pillars of the company that were reporting significant sales and logically a lot of income for the company. Are the GTX 1650 and MX450, veterans in the service where they exist and who are now going to have their successors long after. Therefore, knowing how the new batch performs is very interesting for the user who does not want to spend a lot and wants to have decent gaming performance.
NVIDIA RTX 2050, performance better than expected
The tests have been done in 3DMark Fire Strike and as such the three have been compared under the same conditions and under the so-called Graphics Score, much more fair for this task. With 9679 points the RTX 2050 is clearly superior to its smaller sisters, specifically a 22.6% better than the GTX 1650 and a 134% faster than the MX450.
This is not a surprise as such because we already know that the chip has 2048 Shaders, which is the same amount that integrates the MX570 and the RTX 3050. And it is that all three have a GA107 to their credit and their differences are minimal: frequencies, speed of the VRAM and bus. This leaves us with a fairly similar panorama in performance, very scaled and that should be reflected in the price of one and the other model.
The GPU has also been put to the test in another interesting section and against an external rival such as Intel’s 96 EU Iris Xe in video encoding and what we can see is curious. Rendering at 4K 60 FPS, it can be seen how as the complexity grows, the Intel card falls behind in time, achieving worse performance results than the RTX 2050.
A pleasant surprise that until now we did not know
It has been in a statement from NVIDIA itself that we now know that this RTX 2050 will not only have decent performance, but will be able to improve it thanks to DLSS and also get Ray Tracing in games.
The GeForce RTX 2050 joins the GeForce RTX 20 series laptop lineup. These new laptops feature RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and NVIDIA Encoder to enable our feature set including ray tracing, DLSS, Reflex and Broadcast, among other. The RTX 2050 also works seamlessly with Optimus technology to give you the perfect balance between long battery life and optimal performance.
Therefore, we will have 16 RT Cores, 64 Tensor Cores on the chip and apparently the MX570 will also have them, which is an advantage over Intel and AMD. The best thing may be in the consumption and temperature resulting from it, since the RTX 2050 goes to the 30-45 watts and the MX570 will only need between 15 and 25 watts to work.
