NVIDIA RTX 3050 ships in 4GB and 8GB. But something is wrong!

With the RTX 3050, NVIDIA is bringing a new graphics card onto the market, a low-end component that is intended for everyone who really needs a GPU for their PC but does not want to sell a cardioid on the black market.

But will it be worth it? Hmm … It’s just that NVIDIA seems to be repeating a strategy of the past that has only confused consumers.

NVIDIA RTX 3050 will arrive with 4 GB and 8 GB (and different performances)

Hence, rumors point to two versions of NVIDIA’s new low-end graphics card, RTX 3050, both based on the GA106 GPU. But the difference won’t just be in the size of the GDDR6 memory! While the RTX 3050 with 8 GB will have 2560 CUDA cores, the RTX 3050 with 4 GB will have 2304 cores. In other words, a replay of what happened to the GTX 1060 a few years ago.

Both models will have a 128-bit bus, but we don’t know much more than that. Not in terms of price or availability, but nonetheless, it is very likely that this card is an answer to the new AMD Radeon RX 6400 and therefore the price must be very similar. (~ 200 €)

However, these boards are expected to be announced on January 4th at CES 2022, with availability on store shelves sometime later this month.
